Elastic recognized as a Visionary in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for APM and Observability for the second consecutive year

We are excited to announce that Elastic has been recognized as a Visionary in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for APM and Observability for the second year in a row. In addition, the Elastic solution scored among the Top 3 vendors in five out of six use cases in the 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for APM and Observability.

Elastic recognized for its completeness of vision and ability to execute

We believe Elastic's recognition in this report, based on our “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision”, provides validation to our efforts to deliver new and innovative full-stack observability capabilities on a single platform.

We are grateful to our customers who continue to adopt Elastic Observability to ingest business and operational data, break down silos, and enable end-to-end hybrid and multi-cloud visibility. Elastic’s ability to visualize and analyze all data in context and correlate across logs, metrics, and traces, combined with sophisticated out-of-the-box machine learning and anomaly detection, enables faster problem detection and resolution.

Recent Elastic Observability releases have demonstrated sustained momentum in the following areas:

  • Automated root cause analysis with innovative AIOps capabilities such as APM correlations and anomaly detection
  • Powerful and interactive analytics capabilities allowing queries across multiple dimensions, connecting business and operational KPIs, and the ability to answer the “unknown unknowns”
  • Over 200+ out-of-the-box integrations delivering frictionless data ingest with native cloud provider integrations for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, as well as cloud-native observability for AWS Lambda and Kubernetes
  • A unified Elastic Agent with centralized management and support for metrics, logs, traces, and endpoint security data collection
  • Traceability of the software delivery lifecycle with observability for CI/CD pipeline tools such as Jenkins, Maven, and Ansible

Elastic scored among top three vendors for 5 out of 6 use cases

Elastic scored among the top 3 vendors in the following five use cases:

  1. IT Operations
  2. DevOps/AppDev
  3. SRE/Platform Operations
  4. Application Owner/Line of Business
  5. Digital Experience Monitoring

In addition, Elastic is ranked sixth for the Security Operations use case.

We believe Elastic’s strategic platform investments to deliver observability and observability capabilities on a unified platform align strongly with the market convergence of these functions.

Building lasting value for customers

In our upcoming customer ROI value study, Results that Matter, Elastic surveyed more than 1,400 customers to understand the key benefit areas, capabilities, and value they achieve with the Elastic Platform.

Observability customers indicated a 67% increase in developer and IT staff productivity, 66% improvement in MTTx metrics, and they were able to accelerate the time to market of new features by 61%. In addition, Observability customers reported an overall improvement in system resilience of 60%.

These results show how organizations can increase productivity, accelerate innovation, and improve the digital experience for their customers while ensuring the delivery of mission-critical services with Elastic Observability.

According to Simon Ansell, Senior Director of Design, Engineering and Quality IT at Jaguar Land Rover, Elastic Observability gives his team the opportunity to detect and fix root cause events quickly across business units and with minimal IT or developer support.

“Elasticsearch gives us the ability to spot all the transactions between our suppliers and our JLR plants, ensuring that transactions are synchronized, and data quality is maintained. By optimizing the data transmissions, we can help engineering become more efficient and further optimize our supply chain”, Ansell adds.

Elastic reviews on Gartner Peer Insights also include the following comments:

“Complete observability solution, well documented, and with clear licensing mode and expenses. It covers the main observability pillars: monitoring, centralized logs, APM, and uptime.” (Read the full review)

- Project Manager in the IT Services Industry

“I don't know how it would be possible to manage large scale production deployments without a tool like this, without the metrics, correlation, and monitoring provided by the Elastic Stack we would be blind [to] the operation of our systems and severely limited in our ability to respond to issues in a timely manner."

Elastic Observability continues to drive innovation

As an active contributor to the CNCF, Elastic embraces and supports open-source standards including native support for OpenTelemetry. Our flexible deployment models allow customers to operate the observability solution closer to their workloads in the cloud or on premises, enabling data sovereignty while lowering the total cost of ownership. Elastic Observability continues to simplify the ingestion of telemetry data, using one-click integrations via the unified Elastic Agent, including central management and policy configurations at scale.

“We believe this recognition validates Elastic’s investments in the power of the Elastic Search platform and our Observability solution across logs, traces, metrics, AIOps, and OpenTelemetry, which continues to enable digital businesses to delight their customers.”
