Data integration will replace console integration and alert integration in the management software industry. This is the only path by which customers will be able to replace the current glass of pain with something that actually works.

Microsoft and Docker have announced that they are cooperating to bring Docker to Windows Server. This brings an important innovation to Windows, and will be a boon for the Windows ISV and developer communities.
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.
Like BMC before it, Compuware has been taken private. This is likely because neither the old mainframe business nor the new APM business has shown any growth. Being private will create an opportunity for its APM division to reinvent itself and fully participate in the new high-growth APM markets. We can only hope that the new owners of Compuware will give the APM division the opportunity to join the new leaders in APM.
