Company Acquires BeeInstant, Signify and StackImpact to Augment its Capabilities for Providing Automated Insights for all Application Stakeholders

The addition of StackImpact, BeeInstant and Signify into Instana's APM platform allows us to build upon our leadership in providing automated application insights to the broadest set of application stakeholders.

Instana today announced that the company has acquired three technologies in the advanced application performance management area to continue to enable Instana’s customers to build, deliver and operate better performing software and services faster. The acquisitions augment Instana's next-generation microservices and Kubernetes performance management solution to deliver high-frequency cloud application metrics, recognize and analyze complex system signals, perform code-level profiling and further automate root-cause analysis.

Some of these innovations include:

  • StackImpact - the first polyglot production application profiler
  • BeeInstant - a leading solution in the emerging area of high-frequency metrics analysis in large scale cloud environments
  • Signify - a forward-looking solution to provide insight into complex system signals

“Organizations of all sizes must deliver better software faster while creating more complex systems, involving more stakeholders in continuous services operations and striving for quicker business changes and more frequent software release cycles,” said Mirko Novakovic, co-founder and CEO of Instana. “The addition and integration of StackImpact, BeeInstant and Signify into our APM platform allows Instana to build upon our leadership in providing automated application insights to the broadest set of application stakeholders, including developers, DevOps, SRE, IT Ops and Service delivery teams.”

Instana’s automated Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution discovers application service components and application infrastructure, including Kubernetes, CloudFoundry, Docker, Red Hat OpenShift, Pivotal Application Services and Container Services. The application management solution automatically deploys monitoring sensors for each part of the application technology stack and traces all application requests – without requiring any human configuration or even application restarts. The solution detects changes in the application environment in real-time, adjusting its own models and visualizing the changes and impacts to performance in real-time.

“To make the best possible ROI on our applications, our goal is to speed up our entire CI/CD pipeline,” said Jeff Newton, Head of DevOps at “Instana’s abilities to automate monitoring configuration, adjust in real-time to application changes and provide value to all application stakeholders give our teams the insights needed to deliver higher quality services at a faster delivery rate.”

The three acquisitions consist of two companies, BeeInstant Ltd and StackImpact GmbH, and the Signify technology from JINSPIRED B.V., which will be integrated with Instana’s leading APM solution for microservice applications, providing critical functionality to enhance the ability of Application Delivery teams to monitor and trace high-frequency applications without sampling and deep automated analysis of complex interdependent systems.
