InfoVista Acquires Ipanema Technologies to Maximize Business Application Experience

Company Extends its Capabilities to Help Enterprises and Communications Service Providers Guarantee Application Performance over Hybrid Networks

PARIS, France and HERNDON, Virginia — April 8, 2015 — InfoVista, the global leader of IP and RF planning, service assurance and network optimization software solutions, today announced it has acquired Ipanema Technologies. Ipanema delivers the most innovative, automated solutions to guarantee application performance across enterprises’ large and complex networks.

For the fifth consecutive year, Ipanema has been positioned as a Visionary in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization”. The company’s solutions are used by more than 700 global enterprises and have been adopted by Tier-1 communications service providers (CSPs) to enable the digital transformation of their corporate customers.

Every business is becoming a digital business, and change is coming fast. The consequential application proliferation across hybrid networks, together with the intensive migration of applications to the cloud, are durably increasing IT complexity. CIOs must regain control of application usage, protect and align business-critical application performance with business productivity objectives, and meet users’ quality of experience (QoE) expectations, as the drive toward digitalization accelerates.

This acquisition is part of InfoVista’s strategy to orchestrate network and application performance. It positions InfoVista to offer the most integrated and comprehensive solution set and expertise, to maximize business application experience over hybrid WANs and protect business continuity.

The combined companies will provide fast synergies to our enterprise customers, with a unique combination of actionable visibility and in-depth understanding of application behavior across the entire service delivery chain. This will enable CIOs to:

  • Make data-driven network investment decisions, maximizing MPLS and Internet connectivity ROI,
  • Accelerate integrated and proactive problem identification, troubleshooting and control activities, and
  • Automatically manage, control and guarantee application performance over the hybrid WAN.

Simultaneously, our CSP customers will remain in the best seat to deliver high-performing and differentiated application-aware network services to their business customers transitioning to the hybrid WAN by:

  • Cost-effectively extending InfoVista’s service assurance solution to the Internet network,
  • Accelerating time-to-market and maximizing monetization of their hybrid network services, and
  • Leveraging application performance guarantee solutions to further comply with application SLAs.

  • “With this acquisition, InfoVista extends its capabilities with Software-Defined WAN to maximize business application experience over the hybrid network,” said Philippe Ozanian, CEO, InfoVista. “Both Ipanema and InfoVista strongly share the conviction that CSPs must play the leading role in helping enterprises make the most of the new hybrid network and hybrid cloud paradigm. The two companies have also established a proven and successful technology partnership for several years. This makes us feel very confident in the benefits it will bring to our enterprise and CSP customers.”
  • “Ipanema is a disruptive player in the industry. Its vision of business-centric application performance management through all-in-one, objective-based and fully automated solutions is becoming a must-have,” said Jim Darragh, CEO, Ipanema Technologies. “This acquisition will accelerate our vision and current business momentum, as most CIOs are engaged in the digital transformation of their enterprises. It is also a natural fit, as both companies share the same values and passion for customer satisfaction and innovation.”
