Worldwide Application Performance Management Software Market Shares, 2016: Year of SaaS and DevOps Momentum
This IDC study discusses 2016 market shares and activity across the worldwide APM software and SaaS market, covering APM software solutions deployed on both mainframe and distributed operating environments. Because of the declining share of the market provided by mainframe-based solutions, IDC no longer publishes a distributed-only share analysis."Overall, in 2016, the worldwide APM software market experienced growth consistent with prior forecasts and driven in large part by enterprise digital transformation strategies. SaaS-based solutions reflected particularly strong growth rates," explains Mary Johnston Turner, research vice president, Enterprise System Management Software. "We see increasing use of DevOps and Agile development methodologies driving more frequent application updates and blurring the line between development, test, and production deployments. End-user experience insight and real-time dependency awareness are critical to providing robust SLAs and avoiding runtime problems."
