This 2012 EMA Application Performance Management (APM) Radar explores the challenges of managing applications hosted in the public, private, or hybrid Cloud. It focuses on the issues IT organizations are encountering in terms of managing Cloud environments and provides in-depth analysis of solutions that can help solve them. Cloud is changing the structure of IT organizations and making inroads on traditional on-premise application hosting models. This, in turn, shapes design decisions and product investments by APM vendors.

EMA sees this as an early-stage market with vendors adding Cloud-focused products and features at a furious pace. In developing this Radar Report, EMA engaged eighteen top providers of APM solutions in a detailed analysis of the scope and capabilities of their offerings. These solutions represent a rich cross-section of the IT management tools landscape, ranging from small to very large, from pure software to appliance- and SaaS- based, and from point products to extensive multi-component/multi-function suites. EMA's intent in producing this report is to give businesses seeking Cloud-ready APM solutions a starting point from which to develop a "short list" of potential solutions, based on their own specific requirements.

Although this is still an early market, the vendors included in this report all have distinctive capabilities for managing private, public, or hybrid Cloud environments, and can deliver significant value to companies of virtually any size or in any industry.
