AppDynamics from idea to a $3.7 billion company
It all started with a realization. Two, actually. Jyoti Bansal noticed that more of the software that controls our lives will be in the cloud, and that it would all eventually break.
So he decided to create a company to help the people who make software understand what was going wrong so they could fix it.
