SAN JOSE, Calif. — On March 22nd, 2017, Cisco completed its acquisition of AppDynamics Inc, a privately held software leader in application and business performance monitoring, located in San Francisco CA. AppDynamics empowers enterprises to watch every line of code and understand how their code impacts user experience and application and infrastructure performance, while providing real-time insight into everything going on in digital business. Business and DevOps leaders rely on its real-time insights and code-level visibility to make mission critical and strategic improvements to their apps. Teams across the enterprise can collaborate and drive the business from a single source of truth.
AppDynamics' real-time data platform will be correlated with Cisco’s data platforms over time and give joint customers the richest end-to-end view (from business to user to app to infrastructure) in real-time, allowing for better remediation and automation (across the data center, network and security) and smarter business decisions.
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. As part of Cisco, it will serve a critical role in helping drive Cisco's continued transformation into a software company with recurring subscription revenue.
