Innovation Engines: David Wadhwani, AppDynamics
David Wadhwani joined AppDynamics as its CEO and president in late 2015 after a storied career at Adobe. AppDynamics, which provides application monitoring services for developers and enterprises, recently raised $150 million in a round that reportedly valued the company at close to $2 billion. We talk with Wadhwani about the investment climate, application performance monitoring in general, DevOps, and about how he helped Adobe manage its transition from packaged software to cloud services. Plus, we tell you what to think about the possible bursting of the "unicorn" bubble in 2016, Apple abandoning its iAd platform, Google's AMP platform for faster mobile pages, and Jordan Novet's home-built Oculus Rift-compatible PC.
