Appnomic Expands Executive Team With Industry Leaders

Leadership Additions to Drive Expansion of North American Presence and Enhance Development of Company's Award-Winning Preventive Performance Management and Automation Solutions

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- Appnomic Systems, a leading provider of preventive IT performance management solutions, today announced the expansion of its executive team with the addition of David Langlais as vice president of worldwide marketing and John Karsner as vice president of technology and operations for North America. Langlais and Karsner will help lead the company's continued growth, market expansion, and technology innovation.

The expansion of its executive team leverages significant progress by Appnomic in 2012. New customer wins, current customer growth, and new product launches coupled with a recent Series C investment round from Norwest Venture Partners (NVP) highlight the progress of the company. The Series C round was designated for expanding Appnomic's U.S. market operations and enhancing development of the company's industry leading products and services. Additionally, the AppsOne and OpsOne platforms received industry accolades, including awards such as the SIIA Codie Award finalist, THINKStrategies Best of SaaS, and SiliconIndia Report's Top 20 Technology Solutions for the Banking, Financial Services and Insurance Industry (BFSI). Appnomic notably increased presence in reports by leading industry market analyst firms including Enterprise Management Associates, Gartner Research, TRAC Research and 451 Group. Appnomic further increased thought leadership forging industry alliances with the Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) and the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) where the company contributed to evolving Cloud industry technical standards and education.

"Our success leading the charge on 'preventive' performance management and IT Operations Analytics is attracting top brand enterprise clients, provoking industry analyst rethinking of the APM (Application Performance Management) market, and resulting in top talent joining Appnomic to help us deliver more successes for our clients, our company, and our investors," said Ray Solnik, Appnomic's U.S. president. "Our growth is accelerating as more people learn and understand how we are applying Appnomic's advanced analytics and machine learning to shift IT operations' focus towards prevention of end-user experience problems. David Langlais and John Karsner are top notch professionals who will help us take our message and execution to the next level."

David Langlais previously headed marketing for ProactiveNet, an early pioneer in proactive analytics, a precursor to "preventive" IT analytics concepts such as those now commercially available from Appnomic. After five years of ProactiveNet leadership and growth, BMC acquired the company. Over the course of five years following ProactiveNet's acquisition by BMC Software, Langlais continued growing and expanding BMC's Service Assurance core business, for which ProactiveNet's technology served as the foundation. Two years into the acquisition, BMC earned recognition for the ProactiveNet solution by being included in the Leaders section of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Event Correlation and Analytics and in the Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Management (APM). He has consistently served on the leading edge of software application monitoring and analytics systems. He has spent more than 20 years in marketing and product management executive positions ranging from growth oriented start-ups to multi-billion dollar enterprise software companies.

"Appnomic has made solid strides in U.S. market penetration in a rapidly evolving market -- exhibiting leadership qualities that attracted me to the company," said Langlais. "The company's approach and solutions are impressive. With Appnomic, analytics don't have to be relegated to just responding to or helping resolve existing issues. Preventive analytics are not only proactive and predictive, they are actually helping Appnomic clients take IT operational analytics to the next level and prevent problems. Once the analytics foundation is in place, a number of other compelling use cases are also made available; a fact recognized by Gartner analyst, Will Cappelli who placed Appnomic Systems in the newly defined category of IT Operations Analytics. I am very excited to be back in an entrepreneurial environment leading the charge in the next natural evolution of IT monitoring and management. I very much look forward to bringing our message and expanding set of solutions to enterprises in North America and beyond."

John Karsner joins Appnomic after technical executive positions with companies such as Wells Fargo Bank, NorthPoint Communications, Virgin Mobile, and PARC -- a Xerox Company. Karsner's expertise in applied technology, financial services, and highly scalable transaction-oriented platforms perfectly align with Appnomic's solutions and market emphasis. A solutions architect and principal author of several patents in the areas of scalable, network distributed systems, Karsner's technology track record demonstrates a dedication to innovation and designing meaningful solutions for scaling IT operations. He has also proven an ability to bring these innovations to market by building the IT infrastructure, teams, processes, and software required to scale businesses supporting millions of end users and billions in revenues.

"The design and delivery of performance management and IT automation solutions that offer truly compelling business impact is no small feat -- especially in the dynamic, newly chartered territory of Cloud and hybrid environments," said Karsner. "I've been in the trenches on both tech and business sides of the fence, and am impressed with how Appnomic is raising the bar, applying analytics and machine learning to the IT operations space. Appnomic is among the new software companies generating real value for customers by leveraging Big Data analytics in the IT sector and I am very excited to be a part of the team."
