10. Cisco To Scoop Up Smartlook
Cisco in April revealed its intent to buy Smartlook, a provider of qualitative analytics for websites and mobile apps, to boost Cisco AppDynamics’ Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM).
The move comes as Cisco continues to build out its Full-Stack Observability strategy. The company saw Smartlook, a privately held company based in Brno, Czech Republic, that specializes in Real User Monitoring as a critical component of DEM.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, and the deal is expected to close during the fourth quarter of Cisco’s Fiscal Year 2023.
