Misunderstanding "Open Tracing" for the Enterprise
Enterprise systems management software is hard.

“OpenTracing doesn't solve the interoperability problem, so what does the "open standard" attempting to solve? Well, for one thing, is that it allows those making gateways, proxies, and frameworks the ability to write instrumentation. That should, in theory, make it easier to get traces connected, but once again the requirement to change implementation details for each tool is a problem.”

Microsoft gets serious about monitoring
“Microsoft's vision is to deliver tools that can offer a holistic view of services to application architects looking to optimize their software; performance information and debugging capabilities for DevOps and ops pros; insight into KPIs for executives; and information about customer usage to product owners. Microsoft doesn't yet have a cohesive offering for all of the above, but it has the pieces to enable it and has begun delivering on some integrations across products.”

Compuware's Channel VP Says $2.5 Billion Thoma Bravo Sale A Big Boon To Partners - Page: 1 | CRN
Sell more APM, grow marketshare, probably over at 4-5 year term: The APM market is fragmented. We are the only APM vendor with more than 10 percent share. We can’t reach our potential without joining forces with the channel. No APM vendor has more than 20 percent share, and we aim to change that. If you threw in Keynote (and finessed the taxonomy), a bit of organic growth, and acquired a medium to large sized APM startup, sure! You could buy AppFog off Dell, but integrating that might be a hassle (maybe migrate customers over off Foglight?). NetIQ is also scurrying around in Thoma Bravo land, right? I’ll have to go check the APM market-share pie-charts and start the clock ticking.

CopperEgg tackles APM space under Idera
My colleague Dennis Callaghan wrote up an update around CopperEgg, the APM tool purchased by Idera in July of 2013. While you’ll have to be a 451 client to read the full report (or sign up for a free trial), here’s some excerpts: Now under Idera, CopperEgg has added real-user monitoring and repositioned itself as an application performance management SaaS vendor. And the 451 Take: We’re glad to see CopperEgg running fairly independently within Idera, though we’ll be interested to see how Idera can bring some of its and Precise’s IP to bolster CopperEgg, particularly in database performance monitoring. CopperEgg is growing nicely, though at four years old, it’s not clear that it’s really faring any better than its competition in a crowded and muddled space. The company can offer a front-to-back-end performance monitoring tool, though it still can’t go too deep on the application side. Still, CopperEgg has given Idera a solid presence in SaaS-based monitoring, one that was built from the ground up for SaaS, and Idera is managing it the right way so far. Check out more in the full report.

The APM stuff is going like hot-cakes apparently. Adding to it’s developer & QA tools and monitoring (AlertSite) portfolio, SmartBear announced it’s acquisition of Lucierna. On that note, one of the analysts on my team, Dennis Callaghan, has a long report coming out on the APM as a Service market this month. I’ve, of course, read over the galleys, as it were, and it’s a good, comphrensive overview of what’s going in the APMaaS space. Keep your eyes peeled for it! On a slightly meta-note, I’m curious to see how smallish roll-up companies like SmartBear and fare. I think we’ll see a lot of that, and then there’s larger folks like Idera and Solarwinds seeming to operate in similar fashions. NetIQ and Quest were companies like this that got rolled into larger things, and with Dell and BMC being private, there’s plenty of froth in the systems management area: either by the giants divesting their own assets or wanting to acquire.

IBM Acquires Wireless Analysis Company Now Factory - Arik Hesseldahl - News - AllThingsD
The Now Factory adds capabilities to analyze how consumers interact with various services on their phones, and to yield faster insights on their behavior, Big Blue said. This piece from Joab Jackaon makes to sound like it’s a good approach for doing telco/mobile vertical focused analytics, which would fit with IBM’s vertical approach. Also: According to Caroline Chappell, Heavy Reading analyst and Service Provider IT (SPIT) expert, TNF goes beyond traffic and packets to actually give mobile operators visibility into how mobile apps are performing on the networks. So, for example, an operator could determine what kind of experience Facebook users on a particular cell are getting. It’s this kind of end-user visibility and control over the customer experience that’s needed in an end-to-end CEM solution, Chappell says.
