Analytics and business intelligence (ABI) platforms enable less technical users, including businesspeople, to model, analyze, explore, share and manage data, and collaborate and share findings, enabled by IT and augmented by artificial intelligence (AI). ABI platforms may optionally include the ability to create, modify or enrich a semantic model including business rules.
Gartner defines the Application Performance Monitoring and Observability Market as software that enables the observation and analysis of application health & user experience. The targeted roles are IT operations, site reliability engineers, cloud and platform ops, application developers and product owners. These solutions may be offered for self hosted deployment, as a vendor managed hosted environment, or via SaaS.
Gartner defines Cloud AI developer services as cloud-hosted services/models that allow development teams to leverage AI models via APIs without requiring deep data science expertise. These hosted models deliver services with capabilities in language, vision and automated machine learning. Services are often available via API access and are typically priced based on the number of API calls. In some cases, services are usable via integrated configuration tools. Examples of these services include natural language understanding, sentiment analysis, image recognition and machine learning model creation.
Gartner defines the cloud database management system (DBMS) market as being that for products from vendors that supply fully provider-managed public or private cloud software systems that manage data in cloud storage. Data is stored in a cloud storage tier (such as a cloud object store, a distributed data store or other proprietary cloud storage infrastructure), and may use multiple data models — relational, nonrelational (document, key-value, wide-column, graph), geospatial, time series and others. These DBMSs reflect optimization strategies designed to support transactions and/or analytical processing for one or more of the following use cases: Traditional and augmented transaction processing, Traditional and logical data warehouse, Data science exploration/deep learning, Stream/event processing, and Operational intelligence This market does not include vendors that only provide DBMSs hosted in infrastructure as a service (IaaS), such as in a virtual machine or container, and managed by the customer.
Cloud computing is a style of computing in which scalable and elastic IT-enabled capabilities are delivered as a service using internet technologies. Gartner defines the cloud infrastructure and platform services (CIPS) market as standardized, highly automated offerings, in which infrastructure resources (e.g., compute, networking and storage) are complemented by integrated platform services. These include managed application, database and functions as-a-service offerings. The resources are scalable and elastic in near-real time and are metered by use. Self-service interfaces, including a web-based user interface (UI) and an API, are exposed directly to the customer. The resources may be single-tenant or multitenant, and can be hosted by a service provider or on-premises in the customer’s data center.

An Enterprise Low-code application platform (LCAP) provides rapid application development and deployment using low-code and no-code techniques such as declarative, model-driven application design and development together with the simplified one-button deployment of applications. An LCAP typically creates metadata and interprets that metadata at runtime and abstracts the underlying server infrastructure for ease of use; many also allow optional procedural programming extensions. LCAP supports: • UI capabilities via responsive web and mobile apps • Orchestration or choreography of pages, business process, and decisions or business rules • Built-in database • "One button" deployment of applications
Gartner defines “content delivery networks” as highly distributed edge-based cloud delivery platforms that provide the following functionality: content acceleration, API caching, image optimization, streaming video delivery, web application and perimeter security, and edge compute and storage. CDN providers deploy tens to hundreds of caching, storage and compute nodes in owned and third-party data center locations via public and private Internet Protocol networks.
Gartner defines the market for industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platforms as a set of integrated software capabilities. These capabilities span efforts to improve asset management decision making, as well as operational visibility and control for plants, depots, infrastructure and equipment within asset-intensive industries. These efforts also occur within related operating environments of those industries. The IIoT platform may be consumed as a technology suite or as an open and general-purpose application platform, or both in combination. The platform is engineered to support the requirements of safety, security and mission criticality associated with industrial assets and their operating environments. The IIoT platform software that resides on devices — such as, controllers, routers, access points, gateways and edge computing systems — is considered part of a distributed IIoT platform.
Network firewalls secure traffic bidirectionally across networks. Although these firewalls are primarily deployed as hardware appliances, clients are increasingly deploying virtual appliance firewalls, cloud-native firewalls from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) providers, and firewall as a service (FWaaS) offerings hosted directly by vendors. Capabilities of network firewalls include: Application awareness and control Intrusion detection and prevention Advanced malware detection Logging and reporting
Public cloud storage is infrastructure as a service (IaaS) that provides block, file, object and hybrid cloud storage services delivered through various protocols. The services are stand-alone, but often used in conjunction with compute and other IaaS products. The services are priced based on capacity, data transfer and/or number of requests. The services provide on-demand storage capacity and self-provisioning capabilities. Stored data exists in a multitenant environment, and users access that data through the block, network and REST protocols provided by the services.
Gartner defined Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) as the evolution of the web application firewall market (WAF), expanding WAF capabilities to four core features: WAF, DDoS protection, bot management and API protection. WAAP development started with cloud-delivered WAF services that were easier to deploy, and from the start bundled WAF with DDoS protection. Slowly, the WAF market evolved to offer more than basic capabilities for bot management and API protection. 2019 marked a tipping point with four vendors acquiring specialized bot mitigation providers. During 2020, Gartner observed improvements related to API security features availability, but also more stringent enterprises’ requirements related to the four core WAAP features.
