AppDynamics, CiRBA, ExtraHop, New Relic, Puppet, SevOne, Splunk, Virtual Instruments, Virtustream, VMware, and VMTurbo have become the new leaders of the new management software industry. These vendors address the new requirements of the software-defined data center and the cloud that are neglected by the blind dinosaur legacy vendors: IBM, BMC, HP, and CA.

Legacy management frameworks are going to get replaced by SDDC Management Platforms that combine big data back ends, analytics and ecosystem friendly data collection and integration strategies to give customers the best of both worlds. Customers will be able to choose from among best of breed solutions, and then integrate them at the data level via a big data back end data store. This will revolutionize the management software industry, give rise to a new set of leaders in this industry, and completely destroy the legacy management frameworks.

PerformanceManagement

The Compuware PureStack technology is based upon an agent in the operating system (Windows, Linux, AIX, Solaris, and HPUX) that collects all of the key infrastructure metrics from that operating system. These infrastructure metrics are then mapped to the end to end transaction tracing that Compuware offers through the PurePath technology that came from the Compuware acquisition of dynaTrace.

BlindDinosaur

APM as a Service from vendors like AppDynamics, New Relic, AppFirst, and AppEnsure is a viable option for most enterprises. While on premise solutions are not dead, legacy vendors who have not modernized their products for the new requirements at the application development, application deployment, and data center distribution are blind dinosaurs. They are dead – they just do not know the name of the asteroid that is going to kill them.
