appdirect_logo AppDirect, the cloud service commerce company, has announced that it has acquired Leftronic, a Y Combinator company and leading provider of real-time business data and analytics dashboards. The strategic move expands AppDirect’s data management and visualization capabilities, a core element of its monetization and management platform, and delivers faster access to business data for the company’s network of app marketplaces. The acquisition also enables Leftronic to expand its reach, provide new features for its customers and continue developing innovative business intelligence solutions.

Through the acquisition, AppDirect will provide the only platform to find, buy, manage, and monitor business apps from one location. Businesses will have access to easy-to-use tools to monitor the performance of apps in their AppDirect-powered marketplaces. Leftronic will also be able to extend its KPI monitoring platform to offer powerful identity, billing and application management features. This will provide Leftronic customers with a single location to monitor, as well as manage all of their cloud services.

Today’s business software is more powerful than ever before, but the true power lies in the ability to see the data that impacts your company and understand how to use it to make better strategic decisions,” said Daniel Saks, co-CEO of AppDirect. “Now, AppDirect and Leftronic can work together to ensure business data in our network and marketplaces is easily accessible. By bringing both the management and monitoring of business apps to our platform and network of marketplaces, we’re truly enabling the business dashboard of the future and making data an essential part of the cloud services commerce experience.”

By adding Leftronic’s capabilities to its network, AppDirect is driving new value for users directly from its platform by consolidating the management and monitoring of business apps in one location. Marketplace providers will now be able to quickly access, view and track business performance across their apps and also make data easily available to their internal teams, resellers or customers. Directly from their marketplaces, they can now create and share their key data securely via easily digestible dashboards that automatically update with real-time insights. This enables more informed business decisions with opportunities to implement new strategies for better marketplace engagement.

Launched in 2010 with seed funding from Y Combinator, Leftronic offers an advanced data visualization platform that companies can use to monitor key metrics and performance indicators from across their businesses. Leftronic has grown to serve a wide range of customers in a variety of industries, including Cisco, Nike, HomeAway, Yale University, Twilio, Vodafone, and more.

Leftronic will continue to operate independently while integrating its technology to AppDirect. The entire Leftronic team is joining AppDirect and will continue to operate and grow the Leftronic brand as an independent entity. The team will also leverage AppDirect’s resources and best-in-class cloud service management capabilities to extend benefits to existing and new customers.

At Leftronic, we are passionate about helping users create a data-driven culture where everyone understands the key performance indicators that drive their business,” said Leftronic co-founder and CEO, Rajiv Ghanta. “We have seen firsthand how easy access to real-time metrics can transform companies, and we are thrilled to work with AppDirect to expand our impact to even more businesses around the globe.”
