  • (1888PressRelease) October 05, 2011 - BOSTON- Aternity Inc., the industry's leader in end user experience management solutions for Global 1000 enterprises, announced today it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionary Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring.* Twenty-nine vendors were evaluated in the report, including Aternity's latest product release, the Aternity Frontline Performance Intelligence Platform (FPI) v5.0.

    "Our exclusive user-centric approach to proactive IT Management enables our customers and partners to put the end user at the center of the monitoring universe"

    Gartner positions vendors in the 'Visionary Quadrant' based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision in Application Performance Monitoring (APM). According to Gartner, "visionaries although frequently competitive across three or more of the five functional dimensions of APM, have, in at least one functional dimension, demonstrated (1) a consistent track record of innovation (i.e., they regularly introduced functional capabilities that no other vendor had previously introduced), and (2) their innovations have eventually been widely adopted by their competitors and have shaped the way in which users define APM. Visionaries become Leaders or their technologies are acquired and become part of the Leaders' APM product portfolios."

    "Our exclusive user-centric approach to proactive IT Management enables our customers and partners to put the end user at the center of the monitoring universe," said Trevor Matz, CEO of Aternity. "We believe Gartner's recognition of Aternity as a 'Visionary' further confirms our unique ability to monitor, detect, and pinpoint the cause of application performance problems from the Desktop Vantage Point."

    Aternity's FPI Platform provides comprehensive application, physical and virtual desktop monitoring coverage, advanced, real-time analytics, and massive scalability in order to dramatically reduce business disruptions, increase user productivity, and deliver breakthrough optimization of enterprises' support resources. Aternity is used by Global 1000 companies including industry leaders in financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, energy, telecommunications, services, and high-tech.

    Aternity's FPI Platform v5.0 is the newest release from Aternity, a company that has been repeatedly recognized for leading the market toward next-generation end user experience management and monitoring functionality.
