5 Network Performance Monitoring Vendors to Watch in 2020

As 2020 is now in full swing, we can look back on the previous year and see how its developments will impact the future. In 2019, we saw several vendors introduce advanced capabilities and expand their business beyond simple network monitoring. There were also some key acquisitions and buyouts that (we expect) will give small-scale network monitoring providers the resources to build themselves up into powerhouses in the industry. When thinking of what 2020 will bring for network monitoring vendors and solutions, it helps to watch the companies who are expected to deliver many innovations throughout the year.

Many Entrepreneurs Go Astray In The Middle Of The Process To Create A Worthy Product

More often, we tell the stories of startup successes. Yet, when we refer to statistics, it is usually related to the failure rates. According to CB Insights, 70% of newly founded companies fail 20 months after first raising financing, with the main reason being “no market need.” Startups are increasingly trying to gain market share and disrupt established leaders. At the same time, the number of new products that actually solve a problem somebody cares about enough to pay for is too low.

For a long time, Microsoft had the reputation for being unfriendly to developers.

After all, Microsoft infamously spent much of the '90s and '00s battling with the open source community — the free and remixable software that they were creating posed an existential threat to Windows and other Microsoft products.
