New Relic Acquires Ducksboard, Creator of Integrated Dashboards for Business Metrics, in First-Ever Company Purchase

Ducksboard Can Bring Together and Visualize Metrics From 65 Applications and Customer Data Sources and Will Complement New Relic's Vision for Software Analytics

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2014) - Software analytics company New Relic today announced that it has acquired Ducksboard, a provider of real-time dashboards for tracking business metrics from a broad set of application sources. Ducksboard works with innovative brands, helping them bring together, visualize and monitor data from 65 SaaS and other applications in a single place. The addition of the Ducksboard technology complements the New Relic visualization expertise and will readily expand the sources of data that are available to customers via the New Relic Software Analytics data cloud. Ducksboard bolsters New Relic's commitment to providing the most comprehensive Software Analytics platform on the market, used by people across an organization to get real-time answers to important business questions. 

Founded in 2011 by Diego Mariño, Jan Urbański and Aitor Guevara, Ducksboard was funded by Spanish venture capital firms Kibo Ventures and Cabiedes & Partners, and by several key angel investors. Ducksboard was created on the principle that an organization's data, despite often originating from a variety of complex sources, should be easily accessible in one easy-to-use place.

Ducksboard provides cloud-based dashboard capabilities that leverage a broad variety of business and technical sources, helping customers visualize and monitor data from the various applications they use in a single platform. Ducksboard can access data from 65 applications, including Facebook, GitHub, Google Analytics, New Relic, salesforce.com, Twitter and Zendesk. Ducksboard enables users to show data from multiple external applications alongside internal metrics, and to create dashboards and widgets for visualization through simple API calls. Ducksboard is used by over 700 businesses and since the company's founding, their customers have created over 50,000 dashboards.

New Relic will continue to offer the current version of the Ducksboard product and will announce new and expanded capabilities as they become available.

"Ducksboard realized early how valuable it is for a business to have all of their data in one place and they created a real-time platform that is robust, intuitive and beautifully designed," said Lew Cirne, CEO and founder of New Relic. "Their work is a great match with our vision of providing businesses the data insights they need quickly and easily so they can make the important decisions to run their companies. With Ducksboard now part of the New Relic family, we are eager to work together to innovate around data visualization, but are also very excited about the expanded types of business data that Ducksboard can bring into our comprehensive Software Analytics suite."

"Our vision at Ducksboard has always been to democratize data so that any company, no matter the size, has all the data they need in order to make better business decisions," said Diego Mariño, co-founder of Ducksboard. "We are thrilled to be joining New Relic, a world-class company and innovative leader in the software analytics space, with a customer base that ranges from hot startups and innovative small businesses to some of the largest brands in the world."
