Cisco buys AppDynamics, stops its IPO

Networking giant Cisco has paid US$3.7 billion for AppDynamics, quashing the latter’s intention to go to an IPO very shortly.

AppDynamics occupies a very interesting niche – Application Performance Management (APM). It monitors the performance of apps and looks at what may be slowing them down – networks, servers, the Internet, code and more. iTWire recently wrote about its 2017 predictions.

The Cisco announcement comes as a surprise – AppDynamics' long-awaited IPO was to be this week.

Cisco states that AppDynamics will continue to be led by chief executive David Wadhwani as a new software business unit under Rowan Trollope, Cisco senior vice-president, and general manager, IoT, and Applications business. It has said it looks forward to welcoming the AppDynamics team to Cisco.
