AppDynamics vs New Relic in our news:
2020 - New Relic is changing its pricing model to encourage broader monitoring
In the monitoring world, typically when you spin up a new instance, you pay a fee to monitor it. If you are particularly active in any given month, that can result in a hefty bill at the end of the month. That leads to limiting what you choose to monitor, to control costs. New Relic wants to change that and is moving to a model where customers pay by the user instead, with a smaller, less costly data component. The company is also simplifying its product set with the goal of encouraging customers to instrument everything instead of deciding what to monitor and what to leave out to control cost.
2017 - Cisco aquired application performance management software AppDynamics
Cisco acquires AppDynamics for a whopping $3.7 billion. AppDynamics helps its customers monitor the performance of business applications, which help them get a deeper look into the guts and inner workings of their applications. By having a better overview, companies can more effectively spot chokepoints and performance issues that may be potentially holding back transactions and other kinds of action. The idea there is to catch issues before they become major issues and huge headaches for those companies. For Cisco, that means that it’s going to get yet another touchpoint for companies and offer them a more complete stack to help them run their businesses.
2015 - AppDynamics allows to track business transaction from user to server. Riverbed is in panic
AppDynamics, a company that helps monitor apps and websites in order to prevent outages (or at least understand why they happened and recover as quickly as possible) announced a major update. The latest version helps identify those big problems that take down a website, but also see much smaller ones that can have a negative impact on the collective or individual experience while using an app or website. In particular, it’s supposed to help customers surface patterns like multiple people having an issue with the shopping cart on an eCommerce site, or following an individual customer through what the company calls a ‘digital journey’, as he or she uses a mobile app or visits the company website. The goal is to help identify performance problems wherever they occur along the way.
2015 - Application performance management provider AppDynamics raises $158M
Francisco-based company AppDynamics has closed on $158 million in a round led by General Atlantic and Altimeter Capital. AppDynamics makes software to monitor the performance of business applications, competing with some traditional firms like IBM, as well as younger outfits like New Relic, which went public last December and has seen relatively steady stock performance since. (New Relic, which raised $214 million in venture funding, has a current market cap of $1.8 billion.) AppDynamics had previously raised roughly $206 million in debt and equity, including a $120 million round — $70 million equity and $50 million of debt — that closed in July of last year.
2014 - Mobile analytics startup New Relic is now a billion-dollar company
New Relic, that provides app-monitoring on a SaaS-basis, ended first day of trading as a billion-dollar company. The share price ended up being 47 percent higher than the $23.00 share price it set on Thursday, and makes the company worth roughly $1.5 billion. New Relic offers SaaS Software Analytics Platform that offers Application Performance Management and Real User Monitoring for Cloud and Data Center deployed web applications implemented in Ruby, Java, .NET, Python, PHP, Node.js.

2014 - Application-monitoring platform provider New Relic files for an IPO
Application-monitoring startup New Relic has filed for an initial public offering. In the filing, the company reported revenue of $63.2 million for 2014, which was up from last year’s $29.7 million. New Relic was founded in 2007 and unveiled its first product in 2008. In early October, New Relic bought out Barcelona-based startup Ducksboard, whose technology allows New Relic to hook into various cloud services, aggregate the data and generate a dashboard. New Relic also rolled out it long-awaited Insights real-time analytics service in July that can allegedly generate more information on top of all of the data the New Relic platform collects. The startup is not alone in the application analytics space. It competes with startups like AppDynamics, ThousandEyes and AppNeta.
