Perspica will be combined with AppDynamics, an application performance monitoring company that Cisco acquired in January for $3.7 billion.

The hope is that Perspica's AI will help AppDynamics work faster and better across the complex IT setups that are common at most companies today.

Cisco on Thursday announced its intent to acquire a machine learning and data startup called Perspica.

The San Jose-based Perspica team will join the existing crew at AppDynamics and the products will ultimately be merged into one.

Cisco sent ripples through the enterprise market in January when it acquired AppDynamics in January at the premium price of $3.7 billion — the night before the startup was set to hold its initial public offering (IPO).

AppDynamics does application performance monitoring — Silicon Valley speak for a program that makes sure a website or cloud software is running well for customers.

Two years ago this week, AppDynamics was about to IPO.

Today, as part of Cisco, the company announced it was expanding its monitoring vision across the business with a number of enhancements to its product suite.

AppDynamics CEO David Wadhwani says the company wants to monitor your technology wherever it lives in the enterprise from serverless to mainframe.

That kind of comprehensive view of a customer’s computing environment requires a level of built-in intelligence, and being part of a large organization like Cisco helped move more quickly towards this approach.

Last year when Cisco bought Perspica, a machine learning startup, it folded the engineering team into AppDynamics with a plan to make the product more intelligent.

Given the sheer amount of information, a product like AppDynamics is monitoring it’s a perfect use case for machine learning, which feeds on copious amounts of data.

Application performance management (APM) tools alert IT staff to disruptions in availability and/or quality to end users when accessing mission-critical applications.

For instance, Oracle APM suite can segregate aborted transactions throughout the technology stack at the application level.

AppDynamics, an application performance management, and IT operations analytics company, launched Spring 17 APM platform.

The company has included the AppDynamics Developer Toolkit, which aims at putting APM tooling into the hands of developers, allowing them to integrate that information into the workflow.

The AppDynamics platform can be used to unlock information of many forms, from overall performance data to deep dive captures during a crisis.

AppDynamics, which would have been the first big tech IPO of 2017, is getting purchased by networking titan Cisco for $3.7 billion in cash and equity awards, Cisco announced on Tuesday afternoon.The surprise deal, on the eve of a hotly anticipated stock offering, is likely to raise more uncertainty about Wall Street's appetite for richly-valued tech companies.

The San Francisco startup's now-scuppered IPO was on track to value the company at a maximum of $1.7 billion — less than its last private valuation of $1.9 billion.Axios reports that AppDynamics would have been worth $2.2 billion fully diluted, though, which would have nudged it above that valuation, however.

That report also indicates that the deal came together at the last second, with AppDynamics executives meeting with potential IPO investors as late as noon on Tuesday.The acquistion by Cisco provides a much better exit for AppDynamics' investors.

Cisco is paying a considerable premium for the company, which makes products that help companies monitor and analyze their software.

According to a blog entry, AppDynamics CEO David Wadhwani will be staying on to run the company as a new business unit at Cisco, under the umbrella of its "Internet of Things" business for smart connected devices.Interestingly, AppDynamics had just updated its S-1 filing to go public on Tuesday morning, raising the range of its IPO from $10 to 12, up to $12 to 14.

In either case, it would have been below that $1.9 billion valuation.This was a closely-watched IPO after the relative lack of newly-public tech company offerings in 2016.

AppDynamics has revealed its filing for a U.S. IPO.

The IT company, which helps businesses like Salesforce and IBM with applications management, is targeting a $100 million offering.

Despite a competitive landscape, which includes New Relic and Dynatrace, AppDynamics has shown strong revenue growth over the past year.

For the nine months ending in October, revenue came in $158.4 million, compared to $102.8 million in same period during the year prior, driven by strong growth in subscriptions.

Losses widened slightly, with the company losing $95.1 million through October versus $92.4 million in the same period the year before.

This means that last year, the losses were almost as high as AppDynamics revenue.

Cisco today announced that it has acquired AppDynamics, an application performance management APM software company that had filed to go public just last month, for $3.7 billion.The deal is expected to close in the third quarter of Cisco s 2017 fiscal year, according to a statement.The move is rare and surprising; earlier today AppDynamics raised the price range for its shares from $10-12 to $12-14.

AppDynamics was aiming to raise $156 million in the deal.AppDynamics was planning to start trading on the Nasdaq Global Select market on January 26, according to Nasdaq s website.

Together with Cisco s industry leading digital network architecture, customers will now have unprecedented end to end insight across their technology stack, from infrastructure to application, Cisco corporate development head Rob Salvagno wrote in a blog post.

With this insight, companies will be equipped to improve customer experiences and accelerate revenue opportunities.

The acquisition of AppDynamics also supports Cisco s strategic transition toward software-centric solutions that deliver predictable recurring revenue.

The move broadens further the capabilities of Cisco, which specializes in data center networking hardware.

San Francisco startup AppDynamics is the latest 2017 IPO candidate, filing paperwork for a $100 million offering with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday.The filing from the unicorn company, which develops app-monitoring software for other businesses, comes at the tail end of an unimpressive IPO year.

Just 11 Silicon Valley companies went public in 2016, raising $1.2 billion — half as many deals as last year, and 70 percent less money raised.

But experts are hopeful 2017 will look better, and AppDynamics commitment to going public — something its executives have been talking about doing for a while — is a positive sign.The $100 million price tag on the AppDynamics deal likely is just a placeholder, according to Renaissance Capital, which manages IPO-focused, exchanged-traded funds.

The firm estimates AppDynamics could raise up to $150 million.AppDynamics, which was founded in 2008, was last valued at $1.9 billion, according to venture capital database CB Insights.

The company has raised more than $300 million from big-name investors including Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Battery Ventures.AppDynamics pulled in $158 million during the nine months ending Oct. 31, up from $103 million during the same period last year, according to the company s SEC filing.

But the company s losses are growing as well.

It seems to have been the week for modern application performance monitoring tools to announce major updates.

First, New Relic announced theirs on Monday and today AppDynamics followed suit with its own update to provide more direct insight into business performance — not just the underlying systems and applications.

Both messages are remarkably similar, even the platform naming.

Today, AppDynamics announced the App IQ platform.

The goal of both products is to provide deeper insights into every level of the application from the end user experience to the back-end systems having an impact on its performance, regardless of how a company might be delivering that application.

If you consider that users tend to be an impatient bunch, it makes sense.

Cisco has agreed to acquire AppDynamics for $3.7 billion in cash and assumed equity awards, scooping up the application performance management company just days before its expected initial public offering.

The deal, which Cisco announced late Tuesday, is expected to close by the end of April.

AppDynamics was going to be the first tech company to go public in 2017, with its initial offering set for Thursday, January 26.

Tech industry insiders and investors were watching AppDynamics s IPO closely, because Wall Street investors treatment of its business could signal how other companies would fare later in 2017.

The company offers application performance management services, which provide companies with a dashboard showing how well the software they operate is working.

That s important, considering that businesses are often reliant on computerized systems for a variety of key functions.

San Francisco-based startup AppDynamics was set to be 2017 s first tech IPO, planning to make its public debut on Thursday.But on Tuesday the company had a sudden change of heart.Now instead of braving the public market, AppDynamics will sell to Cisco for about $3.7 billion, according to a news release sent out Tuesday.

We re excited to join Cisco, as it will enable us to help more companies around the globe, AppDynamics President and CEO David Wadhwani wrote.The startup makes software that lets companies track the performance of their apps — technology Cisco says will be vital to its customers.

Applications have become the lifeblood of a company s success.

Keeping those apps running and performing well has never been more important.

Unfortunately, that job has only gotten harder, as IT departments and developers struggle with a tangled web of disconnected, complex data that s hard to understand, wrote Rowan Trollope, Cisco senior vice president and general manager of Cisco s Internet of Things and Applications Business Group.

The combination of Cisco and AppDynamics will allow us to provide end to end visibility and intelligence from the network through to the application; which, combined with security and scale, and help IT to drive a new level of business results.
