10. Cisco Scoops Up Software Company Opsani
Cisco kicked off 2022 by announcing its intent to acquire Opsani in January, a privately held enterprise software company and based in Redwood City, California, for an undisclosed sum.
The two companies said that the acquisition, which was closed in February, will strengthen Cisco’s observability business, AppDynamics. Now together, Cisco has grown its product and engineering team and expanded the AppDynamics platform’s capabilities to better observe enterprise-scale, cloud-native environments.
Cisco’s Opsani buy at the beginning of the year followed the company’s 2021 acquisitions of observability vendor Epsagon and software company replex, which Cisco said underscores its continued investment in its full-stack Observability strategy.
