AppDynamics secures growth funding

By

AppDynamics, an applications intelligence platform for monitoring application performance has secured US$158 million to finance growth.

I have interviewed Andrew Brockfield, Country Manager for AppDynamics Australia. He explained that the company had enterprise level application performance management (APM) that basically measured weather the system, the network, storage, website, e-commerce or the app was causing issues like slow response times. Consumers are a fickle lot and will not wait very long before going elsewhere.

It is a growth company and has secured new investors led by General Atlantic and Altimeter Capital, with participation from Adage Capital, Industry Ventures, Goldman Sachs, and Cross Creek Advisors. Its existing investors IVP, Greylock Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners also participated in the round.

“Virtually every business in every industry is going through a digital transformation to stay competitive and AppDynamics is at the heart of this transition,” said David Wadhwani, president and CEO of AppDynamics. “We are excited to partner with General Atlantic and Altimeter Capital, as well as our other investors, as we look to accelerate product innovation, expand our offering, and fuel our sales and marketing activities.”

As part of General Atlantic’s investment, Robert (Bob) Swan, an operating partner at General Atlantic and former CFO at eBay, Inc., will join the AppDynamics board of directors.

“As global business is transformed by the digital economy and enterprise infrastructure moves to the cloud, CIOs are re-architecting their organizations’ IT strategies to take advantage of this trend. AppDynamics sits at the centre of this shift, and is well-positioned to help enterprises make the digital transformation. We are excited to partner with the AppDynamics management team and look forward to working closely with them to scale the business globally and build AppDynamics into the next great enterprise software company,” he said.

Kevin Wang, partner at Altimeter Capital, said, “AppDynamics has transformed the way developers and IT teams deploy and run the business-critical software that drives the world today. We’re amazed by the vision, elegance, and power of AppDynamics’ products and services, which has resulted in so many happy and delighted customers. It’s an honour to work with the AppDynamics team as they continue expanding their next-generation Application Intelligence Platform and building an iconic enterprise software company.”
