This IDC study discusses 2014 market shares and activity across the worldwide APM software market, covering APM software solutions deployed on mainframe and distributed operating environments and including SaaS-based APM solutions."Overall, in 2014, the worldwide APM software market continued to see slow growth across mainframe-based solutions while SaaS and on-premise solutions running on distributed systems grew at double-digit rates," explains Mary Johnston Turner, IDC research vice president, Enterprise System Management Software. "While mainframe-based solutions still play a role, although their share declined to 18.9% of the total market, it is clear the tide has shifted to focus on more modern solutions.
