IT organizations are being challenged to manage and optimize IT system and application performance, availability, resource usage, and end-user experience across large-scale, complex virtualized and cloud environments. IT operations analytics software and SaaS solutions provide data-driven capabilities for the prediction, prevention, troubleshooting, and root-cause analysis of service impacting events based on big data/analytics and analysis of machine-generated log data and related metrics data. Innovators are expanding the range, capabilities, and technology of IT operations analytics solutions.
IDC Innovators are emerging vendors with revenue <$100 million that have demonstrated either a groundbreaking business model or an innovative new technology — or both. This study identifies three IT operations analytics vendors as IDC Innovators: Evolven, ExtraHop Networks, and Sumo Logic.
The IDC Innovators report recognized Sumo Logic’s cloud-native log management and analytics platform with its machine learning capabilities that can index and analyze a wide variety of sources.
