Cisco Announces Intent to Acquire Perspica

@machinelearnbot

Earlier this year, Cisco announced the acquisition of AppDynamics – uniquely positioning Cisco to enable enterprises to accelerate their digital transformations by actively monitoring, analyzing and optimizing complex application environments at scale. Today, we are excited to announce the intent to acquire Perspica, the first acquisition to support and accelerate the AppDynamics vision. In our experience working with the world's largest companies, we know that machine learning is only as good as the data it ingests; only as relevant as the data's timeliness; and only as valuable as the data's business context. Cisco's AppDynamics data sets span wherever the application components are deployed, and there is a massive opportunity to correlate this with user experience and business context. With the addition of Perspica to our AppDynamics capabilities, customers will be able to further take advantage of machine learning capabilities to analyze large amounts of application-related data, in real time and with business context, including when an application is deployed in a company's public, private and multiple cloud environments.

Why WeWork Thinks It's Worth $20 Billion

WIRED

We're standing in the epicenter of WeWork's cavernous New York City headquarters, where Fano, the company's Chief Growth Officer, has set up a demo area to show off new technologies for prospective clients. These offerings include building out custom office interiors, licensing software that companies can use to book conference rooms, analyzing data on how people are using those conference rooms, and providing on-site human community managers indoctrinated in WeWork's community-minded philosophies. It's a natural extension of WeWork's current business, according to Chief Operating Officer Jen Berrent, who explains that the idea of adding a services business is "something that there's demand for in the market." WeWork's closest model is Regus, a boring-but-practical shared office space business headquartered in Luxembourg.
