SOASTA Acquires LogNormal

LONDON & MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 2 — SOASTA, the leader in cloud and mobile testing, today announced the acquisition of LogNormal, the leading performance measurement company delivering real user measurement and monitoring for mobile and web applications. The acquisition extends SOASTA’s platform to deliver actionable intelligence for both marketing and operations executives on real user behavior.

“SOASTA is focused on constantly improving the user experience on mobile applications,” said Tom Lounibos, SOASTA’s CEO. “SOASTA has been delivering a fast, affordable and scalable performance solution for enterprise customer for years. The acquisition of LogNormal extends our vision of delivering the full life cycle of development, testing and measurement solutions to ensure the optimal user experience for our customers. We are excited to have LogNormal as part of SOASTA, especially Buddy and Philip with their dedication and experience in performance management.”

“SOASTA is the leader in mobile and web performance testing and we are excited to combine our expertise to deliver performance testing, monitoring and measurement in a single platform,” said Buddy Brewer, LogNormal’s CEO. “The combination of LogNormal’s expertise and SOASTA's real-time analytics engine will provide unprecedented insight into mobile behavior.”

LogNormal is the leading Real User Measurement (RUM) company co-founded by industry veterans Buddy Brewer and Philip Tellis. Tellis and Brewer are best known in the performance industry for their creation and contributions to Boomerang, the leading open source RUM solution on the market today. The team has over 20 years experience in performance measurement helping the world’s largest web sites deliver high performance web and mobile applications.

"Buddy and Philip spoke at Velocity in 2012 in Santa Clara and will be speaking again this week in London,” said Steve Souders, Head Performance Engineer at Google. “I’m proud that Velocity gives young innovative companies like LogNormal the exposure needed to succeed. LogNormal and SOASTA's combined expertise in real user measurement and cloud testing is a great match."

“We’ve seen that when organizations take advantage of technologies that provide real-time performance information, they are able to gain a significant benefit in terms of their overall application performance and reliability,” said Jim Rapoza, Senior Research Analyst at the Aberdeen Group. “As the requirements for application performance become more immediate and critical, organizations are finding that they need to focus on real-time monitoring and analytical capabilities that can show how real-users are experiencing applications and make it possible to respond to performance issues as quickly as possible.”

The acquisition was completed in September of 2012, and the LogNormal employees have joined SOASTA effective immediately. The team brings deep technical knowledge and market expertise in mobile and web performance.
