Dashbase, headquartered in Palo Alto, CA, will enable customers to support unique and uncommon data sources across cloud and traditional environments, giving them greater insight into performance issues. The strategy of Cisco is to enhance Cisco’s portfolio of observability solutions.

Cisco’s AppDynamics will use Dashbase’s logs and events analytics technology to further streamline case investigation and the resolution process with support for Metrics, Events, Logs and Traces.

The integration of Dashbase’s technology into the Cisco AppDynamics platform will enable customers to accelerate their digital transformation by unifying the complexity of data across technology, user and business domains.

“The acquisition of Dashbase will strengthen the foundation of the Cisco AppDynamics platform, broadening capabilities and scale to ingest and process data from cloud environments and cross-domain IT environments,” Cisco’s Linda Tong said in a blog post.
