Gartner Again Names New Relic a “Leader” in APM Magic Quadrant

We’re proud to share some pretty exciting news.

For the second year in a row, the industry research firm Gartner has named New Relic as a “Leader” in their Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (by Jonah Kowall and Will Cappelli, 18 December 2013). 


If you’re not familiar with Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, it is a research methodology tool that evaluates the progress and position of vendors in a specific, technology-based market. Seven specific aspects characterized vendors named to the leaders’ quadrant. According to the report, to be named as a leader, “companies must execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow,” have “a consistent track record of innovation,” “a vision that places APM at the heart of operations and application management,” and “demonstrated APM SaaS capabilities across multiple functionality dimensions.”

A lot of companies, large and small, watch the Gartner MQ to help them parse fast-moving markets – like this one.

This bit of great news adds one more thing to a pretty big list of good news for New Relic customers as we close out 2013.  A quick rewind for you:

    • Just 2 months ago we hosted 800 people at FutureStack, our first user conference, providing the chance to mix, mingle and talk software analytics with peers and an impressive list of experts.  Check out video from every session here.
    • We previewed our forthcoming real-time data insights product, codenamed Rubicon, to help you make sense of the billions of metrics coming from your applications each day.
    • We delivered new APM capabilities for Web and mobile applications (including support for Node.js), giving our customers – all 70,000 of them! –  new and better ways to build and deliver modern software.

Through it all, we continue to do what we are best at: delivering a software-as-a-service APM solution that’s easy to start using and that provides deep analytics and insights into even the most complex, multi-tier environments. (One great example: we’ve been helping the government troubleshoot
