A recent Gartner, Inc. report explained, "The network organization must collaborate with application delivery teams and end users to understand specific performance requirements. The network teams must utilize application performance management (APM) tools to benchmark application performance in current and target state architectures." In order to resolve performance issues quickly and ensure smooth delivery of mobile, cloud-based and web applications, companies will need the ability to track and integrate performance data across every touch point. "SolarWinds is one of the great companies in IT infrastructure management with over 150,000 loyal customers and a well-respected, award-winning product portfolio," said Jim Melvin, CEO, AppNeta. "We believe that this investment will benefit both companies' customers with new, and more robust, Full Stack Application Performance Management." AppNeta's cloud-based application performance management solutions deliver full stack visibility of applications, from application code through distributed networks, all the way to end users' devices. This integrated insight gives customers the information they need to achieve exceptional application service delivery. SolarWinds' comprehensive suite of IT management products allows IT Pros to manage the performance and availability of their entire IT infrastructure – networks, systems, virtualization, storage and databases. The partnership opportunities from this investment will allow the two companies to serve customers in the combined infrastructure and application development markets, delivering further insight into the performance of application from the code to the end user experience.
