SolarWinds Named a January 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Application Performance Monitoring Suites


SolarWinds had a great 2018: We launched seven new products and over 12 product updates to our OrionRegistered Platform, DevOps, Security and Compliance, and MSP portfolios. These releases have had an overwhelming amount of support from our user community, which continues to be the foundation of our product strategy. We couldn’t have done it without YOU, our customers, and THWACKRegistered community members.

Most recently, we asked our customers to review us on the Gartner Peer Insights platform for Application Performance Monitoring Suites, an expanding SolarWinds portfolio supporting both cloud-native and on-premises application monitoring. Our customers’ response was emphatic about our APM products, with several highlighting their great return on investment (ROI). Thanks to these reviews, we’re excited to announce that SolarWinds has been recognized as 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Application Performance Monitoring Suites. But don’t take my word for it—check out some of our customer reviews on Gartner Peer Insights: 

“Great monitoring solution (AppOpticsTm) that works out of the box and doesn't need a lot of time.” - CTO in Services Industry

“Overall the upgrade process is working great, AppOptics uses the same agent we already install and the data has allowed us to better tune our applications and servers.” - Senior Network Security Engineer in Finance Industry

“A great product (SAM) that allows me to get on with other work knowing that should anything start to go wrong I will be alerted usually with enough notice to prevent downtime or serious systems degradation.”- ICT Infrastructure Senior Systems Engine in Education

“SolarWinds Server and Application monitor (SAM) has helped up maximize our performance, ROI, and allows for proper information knowledge transfer to happen in a timely manner.”- IT Director in Services Industry

At SolarWinds, continuing to develop our product roadmap through feedback from our user community and customers is our priority. We take pride in knowing the products we make available to our customers are practical, easy to use, and precisely what our technology professionals are asking for. Simply put, we understand our user community and their needs, and make products that work and solve their IT infrastructure problems. As we kick off 2019, I want to take a moment to reflect on our success in 2018 and highlight the unwavering support we continue to receive from our user community.

  • Nicely done SWI! 

    Well deserved. The improvement in the platform since 12.0 (I don't talk about the 12.1 debacle... it's dead to me), and the pace that new products and features are being added, shows that whoever is holding the ultimate purse strings at SolarWinds, they care about the reputation and the brand. It's not all about a return on their investment, it seems, and that shows the strength of SWI as a property, as well as the uber enterprise monitoring vendor we know and love emoticons_cool.png

  • Someone's always gotta complain about something emoticons_confused.png

    Popularity contest or not, well done!!

    It's funny though, usually people are quick to log online and post something negative. Not a lot of people go online to post something positive.

  • I'm glad SW is finally on there with everyone else... congrats denny.lecompte​ and I never got the chance to tell you before I'm glad you came back!  I remember Denny from the old thwack website.

  • whatever the hype - Congratulations emoticons_happy.png

  • Agreed, Jfrazier​    When a VIP believes the marketing tools from a vendor who wants to be paid huge ongoing subscription fees, it can become problematic when the marketing results in a misconception of the value received.  If that VIP doesn't learn new data that adjusts the perception towards accuracy, and the VIP requires purchases be made based on Magic Quadrant standing, mistakes can easily be made.
