SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AppDynamics Inc., the next-generation Application Performance Management solution that simplifies the management of complex apps, today announced a $50 million Series D growth financing round. The round was led by new investor Institutional Venture Partners (IVP), and also included AppDynamics' current investors: Greylock Partners, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and Lightspeed Venture Partners. The financing will support AppDynamics' rapid expansion into the global enterprise market, increase investment in R&D, and accelerate hiring to meet the high demand for the AppDynamics Application Performance Management platform.
The new funding round – the largest in the company's history – follows two years of explosive sales growth for AppDynamics which grew at a 300% CAGR. To continue to manage its rapid growth, AppDynamics also strengthened its executive leadership team last year with the additions of industry veterans Joe Sexton, former head of global Sales at McAfee, as President of Worldwide Field Operations, and Ed Rowe, former head of R&D for Adobe developer products, as Senior Vice President of Engineering. Since its founding in 2008, AppDynamics has expanded to more than 200 employees worldwide with headquarters in San Francisco and offices in UK, France, and Germany.
"AppDynamics is poised to become the leader in a multi-billion dollar market with its unique technology and its customer-friendly sales model. IVP is a believer with conviction in AppDynamics' vision, market opportunity, and leadership team. The rapid growth and customer momentum at AppDynamics points to a bright future for AppDynamics," said Steve Harrick, General Partner at IVP. "Supporting a company that solves practical, real-world problems in large markets fits squarely with IVP's investment strategy and we believe AppDynamics is on a trajectory to become the next great enterprise software company."
"Businesses all over the world are adopting cloud and agile architectures to run their mission-critical applications and AppDynamics is becoming the leading management platform to help them through that transition," said Jyoti Bansal, CEO of AppDynamics. "In 2012 we saw rising demand for AppDynamics solution, particularly from organizations looking for the next generation of an Application Performance Management Platform that can effectively scale with their growth."
AppDynamics stands at the forefront of a generational change regarding how web applications are managed: modern applications are no longer monolithic in nature but are highly distributed and dynamic, fueled by architectural trends like Cloud, Big Data and Agile Development. AppDynamics is leading the charge in next-generation management technology to address this generational shift in web architectures. In addition, AppDynamics has combined its unique technology platform with an "easy-to-use" approach which enables Development and Operations teams to be up and running on AppDynamics within minutes.
The combination of ease-of-use and the capability to solve complex application problems has led to phenomenal growth for AppDynamics. The company currently monitors over 51 billion transactions per day among the customers of its Pro product, which includes companies such as Cornell University, Edmunds.com, ExactTarget, Glassdoor.com, Overstock, Priceline, Roku, StubHub, Staples, Taleo and TiVo. "Finding the root cause of application performance in a complex, distributed app isn't like trying to find a needle in a haystack--rather it's like try finding a needle in a stack of needles. AppDynamics actually makes this possible. It's an easy-to-use solution that really helps my team ensure that our web site is always operating at peak performance," said Ryan Aylward, CTO at Glassdoor.com.
AppDynamics is the next-generation application performance management solution that simplifies the management of complex, business-critical apps. No one can stand slow applications—not IT Ops and Dev teams, not the CIO, and definitely not end users. With AppDynamics, no one has to tolerate slow performing apps ever again. AppDynamics customers include AMICA Insurance, Cornell University, Hotels.com, Insight Technologies, Netflix, Priceline, StubHub, Staples, and TiVo. For more information, visit www.appdynamics.com.
