Perspica’s technology uses stream-based processing and machine learning to rapidly analyze data from enterprises’ IT systems.
This stream-based processing 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,” according to a blog by Bhaskar Sunkara, VP of engineering at Cisco.
The San Jose, California startup’s team will join the AppDynamics group led by SVP and GM David Wadhwani within Cisco’s applications group.
The purchase will support AppDynamics’ application monitoring platform, which Cisco acquired in January for $3.7 billion, wrote Rob Salvagno, VP of corporate business development at Cisco in a blog about the Perspica deal.
“With the addition of Perspica to our AppDynamics capabilities, customers will be able to further take advantage of 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,” Salvagno wrote.
Cisco teams are working on “several joint offers involving Cisco and AppDynamics products,” he added.
The company expects the Perspica acquisition to close in the second quarter of fiscal year 2018.
