NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Catchpoint™, a pioneer in Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM), has been named a Cool Vendor in the Gartner report titled “Cool Vendors in Performance Analysis; Analytics and Containers.”1 This recognition comes as Catchpoint celebrates its 10th anniversary.

Gartner, Inc.’s Cool Vendor report “examines vendors with innovative approaches that I&O (Infrastructure and Operations) leaders can use to address challenges presented by containerization, cloud and microservices.” It continues, “Regular changes in infrastructure technologies and application development methodologies challenge teams to maintain sufficient visibility across their IT estate because new technologies and approaches are not always well-supported by existing monitoring offerings.”

Catchpoint’s Digital Experience Monitoring Platform pinpoints performance and availability problems end users experience anywhere across the modern delivery chain of enterprises, from internal data centers to the cloud to the last mile. It rapidly provides deep insight into modern application issues so IT Operations and DevOps teams can materially reduce mean time to repair (MTTR).

Some of the most sophisticated enterprises already trust Catchpoint as their Digital Experience Monitoring solution, including brands such as Google, Microsoft, Oracle, LinkedIn, L’Oréal and Comcast. Catchpoint has generated 300 percent revenue growth over its last four fiscal years, one reason it was named to Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ in late 2017.

“We are honored to be recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor. We feel this has validated our commitment to innovate in the end-user experience management space,” comments Mehdi Daoudi, CEO and co-founder of Catchpoint. “We are proud to be pioneers in Digital Experience Monitoring, by partnering with leading companies to ensure that their digital transformation initiatives are successful by delivering amazing user experiences throughout the world. Whether enterprises are utilizing internal data centers, the cloud, SaaS applications, microservices, or containers, our real user and synthetic monitoring solutions ensure our customers can deliver end-user experiences that are reliable and meet vendor service level agreements (SLAs).”

Complete End-User Visibility: Catchpoint has expanded its monitoring infrastructure to over 800 nodes worldwide this year, making it the category’s largest network of synthetic monitoring points with the broadest geographic and ISP distribution. By combining Catchpoint’s synthetic and real user (RUM) monitoring, organizations can track the end-user experience of customers, employees or partners across any type of application deployment including cloud, SaaS or serverless architecture.

“After many years of incremental innovation, the IT operations landscape is changing rapidly. This is happening in response to the challenges raised by the following factors: cloud migrations, the adoption of containers and microservices, the increasing focus on customers’ digital experience,” writes Gartner. “The rapid rise in new infrastructures has meant that legacy monitoring approaches are struggling to keep up and remain fit for purpose… As a result, I&O leaders focused on IT Operations transformation should prepare their IT environment's future state and monitoring needs by implementing container-and microservices-ready monitoring tools.”
