SAN FRANCISCO, March 6, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AppDynamics, Inc., the
next-generation application performance management company that simplifies the
management of complex web applications, announced today that Jeremy Duggan, a
veteran of software sales at BMC and BladeLogic, has joined the company as VP
of EMEA Sales. Responsible for the company's entire line of sales and
go-to-market initiatives in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, Jeremy will set
his sights on accelerating a growth engine that exploded 300% over the past
twelve months and added significant customers such as Hotels.com, Betfair, IG
Index, Expedia UK, Unibet, Karavel.com, and Galeries Lafayette.

Prior to joining AppDynamics Jeremy was the EMEA Vice President at BMC,
joining BMC after its acquisition of BladeLogic for $900 million, which
represented the highest multiple paid for any public technology company that
year. At BladeLogic Jeremy led the most profitable, productive, and
fastest-growing region in the company, and prior to BladeLogic Jeremy achieved
similar results running EMEA at Ascential software.

"I'm enthusiastic about the amazing growth story that AppDynamics has created
and the opportunity to scale its already-impressive EMEA operations," said
Jeremy Duggan. "It's a rare phenomenon to find an enterprise software company
that has such fast time-to-value and an immediate impact on its customers'
ability to solve problems. AppDynamics' 'consumer' approach to B2B sales and
marketing allows its prospects to install and use their software with no
training or assistance, a high-velocity, frictionless approach that has
completely disrupted the application performance management space. I'm looking
forward to helping drive the company's customer acquisition efforts and being
a part of its maniacal focus on customer success, as evidenced by its
industry-leading Net Promoter Score of 82."

"Jeremy is one of the top sales executives on the planet and the perfect
choice to harness our EMEA growth engine and take it to the next level," said
Joe Sexton, President of Worldwide Field Operations at AppDynamics. "His
tremendous track record at BMC and BladeLogic demonstrates the strength and
scalability of his unique formula for running a software organization.
Jeremy's unmatched eye for key talent and his ability to unlock the potential
of his sales teams make him the perfect choice to continue AppDynamics'
aggressive growth plans and disruption in the enterprise software space."

IG, a leading provider of financial spread betting and CFDs, is an AppDynamics
customer in the UK. Ivan Gowan, Head of IT Development at IG, commented, "We
rely on AppDynamics to provide real time monitoring of the performance of our
trading systems and it's good to see them enjoying their success and growing
so fast. Their commitment to innovation and their customer experience aligns
closely with our own. This and their commitment to working closely with us is
what ensures our relationship goes from strength to strength."

Having recently completed a funding round of $50 million led by Institutional
Venture Partners with contributions from Greylock Partners, Lightspeed Venture
Partners, and Kleiner Perkins, AppDynamics has opened a new office in
Bracknell, England. Jeremy will hire quickly to fill out the sales team and
rapidly scale EMEA field operations.
