San Francisco - December 23, 2016

Digital intelligence leader New Relic, Inc. (NYSE: NEWR) announced that the company has been recognized and positioned by Gartner as a leader for the fifth consecutive year in the December 2016 “Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites” report by Cameron Haight and Federico De Silva.

In the report, Gartner projects that “By 2020, 70% of APM suite technology buyers will reside outside of traditional IT operations organizations, up from 40% in 2016.” New Relic anticipated this trend early on and has designed the New Relic Digital Intelligence Platform to deliver full-stack visibility and analytics to help diverse teams driving digital initiatives. The company’s application and infrastructure performance monitoring helps companies quickly resolve issues and improve digital customer experiences.

“We are excited to be recognized for the fifth consecutive year as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites,” said Lew Cirne, CEO and founder of New Relic. “We started New Relic to advance the APM market in the cloud and today we deliver a full digital intelligence platform to help enterprises drive better customer experiences and business results. New Relic is dedicated to providing a unified source for developers, operations and product teams to have full-stack visibility, draw actionable, real-time insights from their digital business, and scale as their business grows.”
