Mission & Vision 

VividCortex Mission and Vision

We provide a different kind of visibility. 
Most application performance issues originate in the data tier. While other companies offer application performance monitoring tools, our unique expertise is in providing SaaS that is built specifically to measure the performance of your database. We do this because... 

Our mission is to make every engineer awesome at databases.

We envision a world where systems can be coded faster and run better because the people who build and maintain them use evidence instead of hunches. Our cloud-based platform will enable them to measure precisely how their applications and databases are interacting so they can continuously improve performance.

We are making this vision a reality by bringing together an extraordinary team of experts who are dedicated to certain shared values.
