As we reach the end of the year, many of us are looking back to see how our resolutions for the year 2022 went. Well we don’t know about you, but at Applications Manager, we kept to our resolution to work to deliver the best possible version of our tool. Here’s a look back at 2022 and every milestone we crossed this year.

What was new in 2022?

Although much of our focus was on developing enhancements for cloud monitoring, Applications Manager added a few more features to its catalog this year. We even received recognition from leading market analysts. Let’s take a look at this year’s highlights.

Enhancements to Azure monitoring

The Microsoft Azure Cloud monitor was studded with a few more new services this year.

The newly added Azure Kubernetes Service, Azure SQL Instance, and Azure Load Balancer monitors help widen the scope of visibility into your Azure environment, shedding light on more Azure instances from a single console. The new monitors specialize in tracking the respective KPIs efficiently and helping point out the root cause of any given issue.

Monitoring REST API sequences

APIs are an inherent part of modern applications. Owing to the complex workflows these applications possess, it becomes crucial to monitor API endpoints and sequences to ensure optimal performance. With our Rest API Sequence monitor, you can track the availability of multiple APIs in a single session, without missing a single strand. Apart from this, we also extend support for response forwarding, which can help you identify performance bottlenecks with ease.

We also added SAML authentication and Prometheus integration in Applications Manager this year. Users can now set up an SSO authenticator with the help of an IdP using the SAML authentication. Applications Manager now supports the Prometheus integration, enhancing the auto-discovery of Tomcat servers and adding them as individual monitors in the console automatically.

Feature releases are one thing, but we have much more to celebrate about 2022.

Recognition and appreciation: 2022 

ManageEngine has been positioned in the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Application Performance Monitoring and Observability once again. This is a resource for gaining objective insights into the application performance monitoring (APM) market and its vendors. We believe in consistency with improvement, and that led us to earning a place on this red carpet once again; we plan on continuing the legacy.

There’s one more achievement that added a jewel to Applications Manager’s crown: ManageEngine Applications Manager won Best Application Performance Monitoring Brand at Enterprise IT World’s CIO Select Awards 2022, which took place in Bangalore along with Enterprise IT World’s Hybrid Cloud Summit & Awards 2022.

We were also recognized as a Customers’ Choice in the 2022 Gartner® Peer Insights™ ‘Voice of the Customer’: Application Performance Monitoring and Observability for the fourth time. Apart from being the Customers’ Choice for midsize enterprises, we have also been named a strong performer in the North America and Asia-Pacific regions, and an aspiring performer in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa regions based on deployment segments.

This would not have been possible without the continuous support from our users and partners. We thank all our customers for sticking with us on this wonderful journey. Our resolution for the coming year is to live up to the trust customers place in us and to provide customers with the highest standard of service. We look forward to embarking on another adventurous journey with you in 2023!
