Link: Datadog log monitoring software branches out as DevOps spreads

‘Enterprises initially implemented DevOps within specialized groups that owned a specific application and chose their own IT management tools, said Nancy Gohring, analyst at 451 Research. “Then one day, the enterprise woke up and saw it had 50 different tools, and in some cases, multiple instances of the same tool, each managed by different people,” she said.’

Update on Dynatrace, around half a million in revenue

From Nancy Gohring:

In 2015, Dynatrace recorded $466.6m in revenue, including $30m from services and $60m from SIGOS, the mobile network-testing company that Keynote acquired in 2006. Dynatrace’s APM revenue was $376.6m, representing 15% growth over the previous year, and making it twice as large by revenue as two of its primary competitors – New Relic and AppDynamics.

She writes fine reports.

I was on The New Stack Analyst podcast today along with Nancy Gohring, one of the tech reports who’s work I’ve always enjoyed, and, of course, Alex Williams.

We discuss Nancy’s recent piece on Azure cloud seeming to grow faster than Amazon’s cloud, the problem with figuring comparisons like this out, some different scenarios for big cloud vendor success and failure based on where the packaged software market goes, and then DaaS and WaaS. The last is a topic I know less about than I’d like, but that never stops a analyst from talking about a topic…at length.

Pretty wide-ranging topics, but all trying to sort through what “IT” is becoming with all this cloud nonsense running around.

My connection was slow so I shut down my video. Enjoy milkman meets pie man.
