Citrix Application Performance Management
OPNET is a provider of solutions for application and network performance management, such as Citrix application performance management and network diagramming. The company has an even greater claim to being one of the leaders in this space since it has been placed in the “Leaders” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring” report recently published by research analyst firm Gartner (News - Alert).
Gartner evaluated 14 different companies and evaluated them based on such criteria as vision and ability to execute. The report was published on August 16 and is now available here. OPNET was one of eight companies to land in the Leaders Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring.

APM now represents over 70 percent of our product sales, and has been growing over 30 percent per year for the last four years."
Cohen went on to emphasize the importance of application performance monitoring in management for solutions such as Citrix. "Managing the performance and availability of applications has become a top priority for IT organizations,” he added. “APM offers a paradigm shift for ensuring the quality of end user experience and the continuity of business operations. We believe that Gartner's recognition of OPNET as a leader in application performance monitoring underscores OPNET's success in delivering innovative APM solutions that advance this critical IT discipline."
OPNET offers a variety of application performance monitoring solutions such as CX-Tracer.
