“We drove the research around this latest Radar Report to help assist IT professionals in selecting the right APM solutions to manage their public, private, and hybrid Cloud applications and services,” explained Julie Craig, research director of EMA. “While conducting our product evaluations, we were continually impressed by Aternity’s distinct approach to End User Experience Management and found that its in-depth capabilities were the best way to determine the levels of overall service delivered to end users – no matter if they are running their desktops in physical or virtual environments.”
Aternity received prestigious recognition in the form of two awards:
• Value Leader – Aternity achieved the highest overall combined score of all the Point Solution vendors (AppDynamics, AppFirst, INETCO, Netuitive, New Relic, and Splunk). Specifically, Aternity outranked all other vendors in delivering the strongest overall technology and had the highest degree of cost effectiveness.
• Most Comprehensive Endpoint Diagnostics – This overall award recognizes Aternity’s “distinctive approach to End User Experience Management”. As stated in the report, “…Aternity delivers a level of visibility to the experience of internal users that is difficult to match with other EUE technologies.”
EMA evaluated Aternity’s v5.0 of its Frontline Performance Intelligence (FPI) Platform.

Some of those customers are quoted in the report as saying, “…Aternity seemed head and shoulders above the other solution in terms of maturity in company, support capabilities, ability to execute, and software,” and “The [Aternity] implementation was as effortless as I could have hoped for. During the POC, support provided thorough and fast response when we needed them. At production, everything was squeaky clean.”
