Forrester evaluated eleven companies on thirty-three criteria and scored Dynatrace highest in the Current Offering category.

A complimentary copy of the report is available here.
Forrester’s report states, “The complexity of IT systems has been exponentially increasing for the past several years. This has led I&O teams that lack modernized skill sets, processes, and tooling to struggle with achieving complete visibility into the digital services they provide to customers…. As legacy monitoring technology becomes outdated and less effective, improved analytics and automation will dictate which providers lead.” Forrester advises AIOps customers should look for platform solutions that empower cross-team collaboration through data correlation, provide deep end-to-end digital experience monitoring (DEM), and integrate seamlessly into the whole ITOM toolchain.
“At Dynatrace, we anticipated that the adoption of dynamic multiclouds was going to rapidly increase cloud complexity, and that the volume, velocity, and variety of observability data would expand beyond humans’ ability to manage. Because of this, we built automation and intelligence into the core of our platform,” said Steve Tack, SVP of Product Management at Dynatrace. “It is always great to be recognized as a leader from top-tier analysts such as Forrester. We believe Dynatrace’s position in this report validates our mission to help transform how BizDevOps teams work by automating cloud operations, driving greater collaboration between teams, and freeing time and resources to accelerate innovation, and drive better business outcomes.”
