IDC ExpertROI Spotlight: New Relic Yields 314 Percent ROI For Global Customer

How much money can the New Relic software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution save? A recent IDC ExpertROI Spotlight, sponsored by New Relic, entitled New Relic Yields 314% ROI for Global Technology Manufacturer (September 2013) calculated a return on investment (ROI) of 314 percent in a five-year period and a three-month payback for a global technology manufacturer.

You’ll have to read the study to get the details, but in short, this manufacturer found traditional, on-premise monitoring tools were expensive and stifling its ability to rapidly grow new services. Recognizing that silo-based monitoring wasn’t able to focus on the user experience, the company deployed New Relic to gain a single view into their entire application stack, including users, servers, databases, and application code.

And from the looks of it, the strategy paid off: the IDC ExpertROI Spotlight calculated that by using New Relic, the manufacturer will:

    • Save $1,499 per developer
    • Reduce the cost to test applications by 95 percent
    • Accelerate time to market by 75 percent

Here’s what a side-by-side comparison of on-premise versus New Relic APM revealed:


As the manufacturer migrates more application server environments to New Relic, it expects to enhance performance and optimize its server management cost structure, making it even more competitive.
