Cisco announced its intent to acquire replex GmbH, a privately held enterprise software company based in Germany.

The acquisition of replex will help AppDynamics grow its product and engineering talent with a view toward accelerating and expanding product capabilities that observe enterprise-scale, cloud-native environments. Replex’s deep expertise in Kubernetes, real-time data extraction and analytics will further strengthen AppDynamics’ world-class product and engineering team as they accelerate the delivery of Cisco’s Full-Stack Observability vision. 

Over the last 12 months, Cisco has stressed the importance of full-stack observability in solving some of the most challenging and complex problems that technologists face today. With the rapid shift toward the digital economy and hybrid world, consistent availability and performance of the applications we rely on – both inside and outside of work – have never been more important.

IT teams need end-to-end visibility of application environments, user experiences and their business impact, giving them the power to see, understand and optimize what happens throughout the technology stack and beyond. However, they need accurate, real-time data. And Cisco is passionate about arming their customers with that data and the tools they need to tackle these business-critical challenges.

The AppDynamics Business Observability platform is a critical component of Cisco’s Full-Stack Observability strategy. Together, both are delivering an enterprise-scale and cloud-native Observability platform that will meet the growing demands of global technologists as they navigate increasing IT complexity and data noise. The addition of replex’s highly skilled team to AppDynamics will enable Cisco to accelerate and broaden the platform’s capabilities and deliver on this strategy.
