IBM Instana Named a Leader in the G2 Winter 2023 Application Performance Monitoring Grid Report

January 18, 2023

IBM Instana is a leader in the Winter 2023 Application Performance Monitoring Grid Report by G2. IBM Instana was featured in more than 94 G2 reports, earning a leadership status across 28 reports, ranging from APM, AIOps, Container Monitoring, and Log Analysis categories.

Our recognition is a testament to our strong customer satisfaction, focusing on our strengths, and likeliness to recommend ratings on G2 with our continuous innovation. As we like to say the best incidents are ones that never occur!

IBM Instana’s Head of Marketing, Sonja Bata says the “ease of usage is very simple and the co-relation of alerts with downstream services which helps our customer reduce their MTTR and improve MTTI. Also, our very nicely managed documentation makes the integration very easy for customers. Our Automatic Root Cause Analysis of Microservices gives customers a deeper insight into the complex environment that they have.”

Mike Mallo, VP of Product, has this to say on Instana’s latest partnership, “with our innovation and integration, we pave the way. We’re the first to connect SREs and mobile developers, making efficiency a breeze with modern APM. We’re thrilled for our customers to be more efficient with this integration”.

“Instana – The Go To Tool”

Instana brings us the status of the entire architecture on one screen. Gone are the days we had to log into the server box and check the java process, heap space, garbage collection stats, or whatever. We got to remember that all these require some additional settings too. But now, for us in our organisation, the entire responsibility is owned by Instana. Forgot to mention this has API monitoring too. There are many more advantages of using this tool, which helps us debug live customer issues and ensure system stability.

“Instana monitored my environment easy”

I like the best thing about Instana. Its first thing is to have a GUI interface, and I can manage my docker, my servers, and my application services and can notify me if anything fails. Also in, network level and infrastructure.
