We decided to rename our cool vendors research this year, since we regularly were featuring technologies which were not related directly to performance demands, but also included general analytics technologies applied to infrastructure and operations professionals needs. In the research for this year we saw a similar split between these technologies.
In the research we profiled several vendors. Will Cappelli included Metafor Software, who provides ITOA technologies to detect and better understand change and configuration of server environments. The product is available as SaaS or on Premise deployment models.

The product uses a small agent to measure performance and usage. As wireless connectivity becomes more critical understanding carrier and hardware choices will increase in importance.
