Who Would YOU Buy APM From?

At AppDynamics we’re laser focused on Application Performance Management. Our growth over the past three years has been fuelled by customers worldwide who selected AppDynamics as their preferred APM solution over legacy vendors like BMC Software and Compuware. This is one of the reasons why AppDynamics was positioned as a Leader in its debut year for the Gartner APM Magic Quadrant.

According to Reuters on March 21st, buyout firms are teaming up to take BMC private via auction, in addition Reuters also reported today that Sandell Asset Management are urging Compuware Management to sell the company, “We believe that the only viable path to maximize stockholder value, rather than destroy it, is to execute a sale of the company to the highest bidder as promptly as possible. ”

So, if you’re considering APM in your organization, ask yourself one question:

Breaking News: Compuware Marketing Team Makes Fun of AppDynamics MSP Offering Description

On the day that AppDynamics announced their APMaaS (yep, APM as a Service) offering for MSP’s (Managed Service Providers) the Compuware marketing team took to the twitterverse to let the world know how ridiculous it is to describe your offering in such plain terms. Here are a few of the exceptionally creative tweets attacking the complete lack of marketing lies and immorality displayed by the goody two shoes at AppDynamics…

 Ben Grubin was so pleased with his initial tweet that he decided to tweet almost the same thing twice more…

In related news, AppDynamics doesn’t actually have a product named APMaaS in a box. Instead it’s actually a description of the offering we are using to replace Compuware and other APM vendors at MSP’s. I don’t think anyone can really fault these marketing professionals for their lack of reading comprehension, so we’ll just chalk it up to an honest mistake and move on.

We’d like to thank Compuware for paying us such attention and reading our announcements, its flattering for a company like AppDynamics that has only been selling APM for three years.

AppDynamics Secures $20 Million in Series C Funding Led by Kleiner Perkins

When I joined AppDynamics less than a year ago, we were situated in a 6,000 sq ft “cozy” office on 2nd and Brannan. On my first day I was greeted with a MacBook Pro and was asked to find a spare desk amongst the boxes and carnage of a typical startup environment. To my left was a relentless engineering and UI team, and to my right was a fired up sales and marketing team, and a quietly confident Founder and CEO, Jyoti Bansal who made all of this happen. Across the office was a shiny gold bell mounted on the wall, which rang every time AppDynamics closed a new customer. In the last year I can honestly say that shiny bell hasn’t stopped ringing, and is the biggest adrenaline boost one can get while working.
