Cisco acquires AppDynamics for $3.7 billion


Just a day before its much-awaited IPO, AppDynamics, the San Francisco-based application performance management company, has called off its plans to go public in favour of being acquired by Cisco for $3.7 billion at a $3.9 billion valuation. According to analysts, the exit is a fantastic deal for AppDynamics since the IPO would have valued the company at under $2 billion. For Cisco, the acquisition is part of its strategic push to shift from traditional networking hardware to software and services. The deal is Cisco’s biggest acquisition following its purchase of Jasper Technologies for $1.4 billion in 2015 and Sourcefire for $2.7 billion in 2013.

HPE to acquire SimpliVity for $650 million


HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) has agreed to acquire SimpliVity for $650 million to expand its existing infrastructure, automation and cloud services. SimpliVity is one of the major players in the space called hyperconverged infrastructure, a type of infrastructure that tightly combines compute, storage and networking into a single system. According to analysts, the acquisition was a great deal for HPE. After all, SimpliVity used to be valued at $1 billion in 2015 and was even rumoured to have a purchase price of a whopping $3.9 billion a few months ago. If so, HPE has succeeded in purchasing a top-rated startup at a very low price.
