[CISCO] Cisco Acquires Perspica
SAN JOSE, Calif. – On November 1, 2017, Cisco completed the acquisition of Perspica, Inc. headquartered in San Jose, CA. Perspica provides machine learning and data processing technology and expertise, which will support and accelerate the AppDynamics vision.
With the addition of Perspica to AppDynamics capabilities, customers will be able to further leverage machine learning capabilities to analyze large amounts of application-related data, in real-time and with business context, including when an application is deployed in a company’s public, private and multiple cloud environments. Together, AppDynamics and Perspica can provide enterprises with a way to filter crucial signals from the noise and drive their growth based on the digital streaming insights of their businesses. They will do this through:
- Collaboration with Perspica’s engineering talent who specialize in data science and highly scalable data platforms;
- Stream-based processing that can derive inferences from data and find anomalies without needing to wait until data is stored, which will enable our customers to accelerate their paths to business-driving insights; and
- Domain-specific machine learning that will strengthen our root cause analysis capabilities and core APM solution by allowing our agents to massively increase the amount of data points we can ingest.
The Perspica team will be joining the Cisco AppDynamics business unit led by SVP/GM David Wadhwani within the Applications Group led by Rowan Trollope.
