As CEO of ExtraHop, one of my favorite jobs is getting to share good news. Today, it's great news. This week, ExtraHop debuted as a Visionary in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics. We believe our placement reflects what our customers and partners already know: the network can tell you so much more than just how it's performing.
Here's a little bit more about ExtraHop and our vision for the future of IT Analytics.
Who is ExtraHop?
ExtraHop is the leader in real-time IT Analytics. When customers need accurate and timely insight into what's happening in their digital world, they turn to us first, and for good reason. We analyze every single digital interaction occurring in the environment, and we turn that data into actionable intelligence for everyone from the network engineer to the CIO. With the introduction of the ExtraHop Addy machine learning service last week, we now make those digital interactions more powerful than ever. It's not just real-time visibility anymore. It's predictive, proactive, and continuously improving.
Completeness of Vision: It's Our Thing.
We didn't build the ExtraHop platform to improve the status quo. We built the platform to totally disrupt it. Our mission has always been bold: transform the scale and complexity of modern IT into a powerful source of intelligence for business operations. Our real-time IT analytics do just that.
That's why it came as no surprise to us that Gartner acknowledged ExtraHop as a Visionary in the 2017 NPMD Magic Quadrant. In fact, we're positioned furthest in vision of any vendor in the quadrant.
That's because our vision doesn't stop at network performance. It starts there. The network is the communication medium for every single digital interaction that makes up modern digital business. By analyzing all of these interactions in real-time and applying machine learning to surface anomalies around performance and security, we transform this data set into the most complete, accurate, and timely source of insight.
A Visionary Leading the Transformation
It needs to be said: traditional NPMD has been stagnant for a long time. Same players, same bottoms-up, packet-centric workflow. The status quo in NPMD was built for IT architectures that existed 10 years ago. The infrastructure era is over. The application era is rapidly drawing to a close. The digital business era is here, and it demands a radically different approach to performance management. In fact, it demands real-time IT analytics.
ExtraHop has pioneered that approach, and we're not done innovating -- not even close. We're not about packets. We're about interactions. We don't measure resolution time in hours. We measure it in clicks. We're not about data. We're about being data-driven. And that's exactly what we deliver to our hundreds of global enterprise customers, who save millions of dollars and tens of thousands of hours every year.
