Stratford Managers client Accedian acquires Performance Vision

Stratford Managers client, Accedian, recently acquired Performance Vision, a leader in network and application performance management (NPM/APM) and were recognized in Gartner’s 2018 Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD) Magic Quadrant Report.

The acquisition is a natural complement to Accedian’s performance assurance portfolio, used by many of the largest communications service providers worldwide. Performance Vision’s technology brings advanced end-user digital experience monitoring capabilities to Accedian’s existing customer base, while expanding its addressable market to key enterprise segments including banking, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, and cloud services. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Performance Vision’s exceptional wire data analytics complements Accedian’s SkyLIGHT™ active monitoring platform, bringing complete visibility of all applications, transactions, and network components together, for the most complete view of network health available. Actionable insight generated by analyzing all traffic crossing physical, virtual, cloud and software-defined network (SDN) infrastructure enables IT and Network operations to improve end-user digital experience, application, network, and multi-cloud performance.

Commenting on the acquisition, Accedian CEO Patrick Ostiguy said, “The combination of Performance Vision and Accedian creates a proposition that is truly unique. There is no other company that is able to offer this level of accuracy and granularity into how the performance of the network and the applications running over it impact the end-user digital experience, in real-time, for enterprises of all sizes.”

Accedian is cited in the Quadrant Report under the “Accedian (Performance Vision)” brand and the solution will be renamed SkyLIGHT™ PVX as a result of the acquisition. Accedian and their customers believe SkyLIGHT PVX’s focus on monitoring SDN, cloud, and virtual environments is a differentiator within the NPMD market. It’s simplicity in deployment, training, and use reduces total cost of ownership (TCO), while making its insights accessible to all IT departments as a hub for collaboration. Granularity and performance at scale, combined with an intuitive workflow and rapid visualization facilitates quick diagnosis of performance issues.
