AppDynamics has announced the availability of its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering in Asia, enabling customers to access AppDynamics solutions via a local cloud location. Situated in India and built on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Mumbai region, the offering is available to AppDynamics customers in India and throughout Asia. Enterprises can now accelerate their digital transformations through faster access to the latest AppDynamics innovations and industry-leading AIOps solutions.
The adoption of cloud services in India is on the rise, with IDC reporting that by 2022, 40 per cent of new enterprise applications in India will be developed cloud-native, based on a hyper-agile architecture, and that by 2023, 55 per cent of top 500 organisations in India will have a multi-cloud management strategy.
Furthermore, the availability of this new SaaS offering will resolve potential concerns around data sovereignty and data governance requirements for customers in India. This anticipates legislation, including the Personal Data Protection Bill 2019, which would require Indian organisations to retain critical application performance and business data within India.
This is the fourth SaaS offering location offered by AppDynamics. Existing regions include Asia Pacific (Australia), the European Union (Germany), and North America (US). This newest addition confirms AppDynamics’ focus and continued investments in India and the wider region.
Commenting on the development, Abhilash Purushothaman, managing director for India and SAARC, AppDynamics, said, “AppDynamics’ SaaS offering in Asia opens up a whole new market – particularly in India – and creates a real and differentiated value proposition for our existing and prospective customers. Enterprises can now choose our industry leading, business centric observability platform via a local SaaS offering and deploy AppDynamics solutions more rapidly and drive faster outcomes for their businesses. AppDynamics is committed to the region and helping enterprises deliver flawless digital experiences to customers and employees.”
Enterprises and service providers can use AppDynamics to monitor their applications on-premises or in the cloud while achieving greater control around:
- Data Residency – Enables enterprise businesses to comply with anticipated India-specific jurisdiction and regulatory control guidelines relating to the location of stored data.
- Scale – AppDynamics’ unified suite of solutions delivered with the scalability of AWS provides high-speed access to data.
- Access to Innovation – Leverage the latest innovation from AppDynamics, including industry leading AIOps, APMand Business iQ solutions, through automated and seamless upgrades.
- Data Privacy and Security – The SaaS offering in Asia augments and reinforces AppDynamics’ commitment to building security and privacy by design in our product development cycle.
Further, Maneesh Jhawar, founder and chief executive officer (CEO), QualityKiosk Technologies, an AppDynamics ‘Titan Partner’ based in Mumbai, India, said, “We are seeing greater adoption of application performance and AIOps technologies, so the availability of a SaaS offering for customers in Asia, in particular India, is timely and much needed. As an AppDynamics partner in the region, we are particularly excited about the opportunities this brings to accelerate adoption of APM across industry segments, as well as drive significant incremental value to existing and new customers.”
