It’s fun seeing non-tech companies do this stuff. Also: “what’s in your dashboard?!”
Looking for a production monitoring tool? Stackify launched recently, and my 451 report on them is up. Clients can read the full report, but here’s the 451 Take:
Our surveys of this space show steady interest in new tools and methods for monitoring and managing cloud-native applications. There are many entrenched tools from the Big Four (CA, IBM, HP, BMC) and other ‘legacy’ systems management vendors; these vendors have had mixed success in ‘keeping up,’ opening market gaps for Stackify and others. Early success in this market depends on good marketing and go-to-market models, with SolarWinds being an iconic example. The danger for a small company like Stackify comes in the form of well-moneyed and innovative competitors of all sizes and flavors. Stackify will have to quickly stake out its ground and begin expertly managing its deal funnel and pace of innovation – the core challenges of any startup.
