Why Read This Report

Open source software (OSS) is surging in application development circles, but proprietary solutions continue to dominate in application performance management (APM) used within infrastructure and operations (I&O) teams. Development and operations (DevOps) is a head-on collision of these two cultures, destined to reform one or the other. Forrester believes that fast-moving operations teams will increasingly turn to open source APM tools for the agility and speed required in the age of the customer.
