Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring and Behavior Learning Engine

I strongly believe that my SEDS or SETDS (Statistical Exception and Trend Detection System) could be treated as BLE – Behavior Learning Engine. SEDS or SETDS (new name I use now) is not recognized by the following Gartner’s research, but BLE is. 

Gartner 2011 research (G00215740) called “Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring” ( can be downloaded here) admitted that one of the important functionality dimensions of APM is “Applications Performance Analytics” which descried in the research and can be seen in below quotes:
That includes BLE which is indeed the essential component of Application Performance Analytics. The research includes the several Vendors/tools analyses that showed in the Quadrant picture below:


But only the following vendors were indicated in the research as having tools with strong behavior learning features: 

BMC software

CA Technologies

I hope the SETDS implementation offering withing the IBM consulting service (which I currently do) could shift the company in that Magic Quadrant to the right...
