Elastic named a Visionary in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for APM and Observability

We are honored to be named a Visionary in this year's Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and Observability, for the third year in a row.

We believe this recognition validates Elastic's approach to delivering an open and flexible full-stack observability solution powered by advanced machine learning and analytics on the proven Elasticsearch Platform.

Elastic Observability enables teams to:

  • Quickly detect and resolve issues before they impact users and continuously improve their systems
  • Break down silos and consolidate metrics, logs, and traces with high cardinality and high dimensionality, correlated and in context
  • Gain full visibility into complex hybrid and multi-cloud environments, including cloud-native and microservices technologies
  • Perform interactive ad hoc investigations and create custom visualizations to find root cause faster
  • Operate closer to workloads and ingest telemetry data at scale with flexible deployment options that can be hosted on-premises and on AWS, Azure, and GCP
  • Automatically receive actionable insights through powerful machine learning and analytics
