ScienceLogic Acquires AppFirst and Becomes First to Provide Full Stack Visibility Across All Hybrid IT Services

Company Expands its IT Infrastructure Monitoring with Application Discovery, Dependency Mapping, and Performance Analytics

Reston, Virginia – August 19, 2016 – ScienceLogic, the leader in hybrid IT monitoring, today announced that it has acquired AppFirst, a real-time application-aware monitoring and analytics company. The acquisition included several patented technologies and scale-out data processing capability. Transaction terms were not disclosed.

ScienceLogic plans on releasing the industry’s first converged platform offering later this year. With newly added best in class agent-based analytics and sub-second application data collection, alongside ScienceLogic’s existing discovery and performance visibility, customers will benefit from an entirely new and better way to manage IT.

“We believe that application dependency discovery and management innovation will accelerate hybrid cloud production environments within the $23 billion cloud computing market,” said Dave Link, CEO, ScienceLogic.* “As we now embed deep application discovery and analytics capabilities into our hybrid IT monitoring platform, organizations for the first time can monitor all business-critical services, including deep application performance, fault and configuration analytics, across their hybrid IT environments. Our acquisition of AppFirst represents a major leap in ScienceLogic’s sophisticated service assurance capabilities, core to helping our customers run their businesses better.”
