Cisco recently announced the completion of its acquisition of AppDynamics.
Together, the companies will aim to deliver visibility across the network, data centre, security, applications and to drive digital transformation.
According to Cisco, having AppDynamics within the company fold will allow them to offer intelligence, correlation and insights at every level of the infrastructure, security and application, enabling customers to make more informed IT decisions and improve business results.
"We acquired AppDynamics because they are a market leader in a category that will be a cornerstone for how enterprises drive their business forward," says Rowan Trollope, senior vice president and general manager, Internet of Things (IoT) and Applications, Cisco.
"Together, AppDynamics and Cisco will be the only company that can deliver complete visibility spanning from the infrastructure to application to end user."
The company was certainly on a roll before being acquired by Cisco, as reports show the company saw year-over-year revenue growth of over 50 percent, with approximately 75 percent of last year’s product revenue purely subscription-based.
AppDynamics also listed their recent successes and customer traction, including:
"In a digital world, the user experience, application, and business are converged and inseparable. AppDynamics sits at this intersection monitoring the impact of every line of code on business outcomes," says David Wadhwani, current chief executive officer, AppDynamics.
"By joining forces with Cisco, we're able to double down on our vision of helping companies overcome the complexity of modern software so they can deliver exceptional customer experiences and drive better business performance."
AppDynamics will continue to be led by David Wadhwani as a new software business unit in Cisco's IoT and Applications business, reporting to senior vice president Rowan Trollope.
