ScienceLogic raises $43 million in Series D funding

ScienceLogic Logo

ScienceLogic has announced that they have raised $43 million in Series D funding. This round of funding was led by Goldman Sachs. New Enterprise Associates and Intel Capital also participated in this round. Based in Reston, Virginia, ScienceLogic is an IT monitoring software provider. More details below:


Reston, VA – February 19, 2015 – IT monitoring software provider ScienceLogic, today announced a $43 million Series D venture capital round led by Goldman Sachs with current investors, NEA and Intel Capital also participating. The investment will be used to accelerate sales, marketing, product development, and international market opportunities.

“We are very excited topartner with ScienceLogic, which is disrupting the multibillion dollar IT management market with products uniquely suited to meeting Hybrid IT monitoring demand,” said David Campbell, Managing Director – Merchant Banking Division, Goldman Sachs. “We were attracted by the transformative market opportunity, the unique differentiation of the ScienceLogic Hybrid IT monitoring software, and the consistent results of a disciplined management team.”

ScienceLogic is experiencing massive growth as enterprises and governments move in large numbers to take advantage of the cost savings and efficiency gained from Hybrid IT – or the ability to burst to the public cloud to meet fluctuating computing and business requirements. ScienceLogic is the only IT monitoring provider to have architected its products specifically to meet Hybrid IT monitoring requirements, across multi-clouds environments. The company recently reported year over year subscription GAAP revenue growth of 135 percent and year-over- year subscription customer acquisition of 125 percent.

“We are thrilled to partner with Goldman Sachs as we maximize our market opportunity to rapidly ramp our business growth and deliver even stronger value to our global customer base,” said Dave Link, CEO ScienceLogic. “The investment caps a highly successful 2014 for ScienceLogic, which saw a huge demand for our Hybrid IT monitoring platform and a huge growth in our enterprise customer base.”

Nearly 80 percent of global enterprises are now leveraging public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) to establish hybrid IT environments and 70 percent of those companies are planning to dramatically increase spending in the public cloud over the next year, based on the current benefits gained.

However, while adoption is increasing and investment booming, most enterprises are unable to monitor and control the accompanying sprawl – lack hybrid IT management skills – and do not have proper visibility into their clouds; this results in significant infrastructure availability and performance risk.

ScienceLogic automatically discovers the entire on and off-premise infrastructure, visually mapping the cross-technology and cross-cloud dependencies, and instantly applying the right monitoring policies. By doing so, this provides a complete end-to-end visibility and understanding into the health and availability of legacy systems and publiccloud infrastructure. Troubleshooting and identify the root cause of issues then become simple, and a task that can be completed in minutes, guaranteeing business services continuity and uptime.

Kellogg Company, a Fortune 500, multinational food manufacturing company headquartered in Michigan, chose ScienceLogic to view and manage their entire infrastructure both on-premises in their datacenters and off-premises in the public cloud, from a single view.They saw this unique capability as key to accelerate off-premises cloud adoption.

“At Kellogg, we are always looking to improve our IT operational efficiency. A big part of that is our all-in strategy on Hybrid Cloud with a particular emphasis on exploiting AWS for efficiency and agility,” said Stover Mcllwain, Senior Director IT Infrastructure Engineering. “With ScienceLogic, we are able to give Kellogg executives the IT visibility they need, while dramatically reducingoverall support and capital costs by over $2 million over five years compared to our previous ITOM suite.”

Already Pindrop is protecting hundreds of millions of bank and retail customers.”

“We are thrilled to have several of the largest US financial institutions and retail companies as customers. This additional investment will enable us to expand operations globally while continuing to serve our current customers with excellence,” said Vijay Balasubramaniyan, Ph.D., co-founder and CEO, Pindrop Security. “As the clear leader in the market, Pindrop is establishing the standard for how enterprises secure the call center.”

6sense Raises $20 Million – Predictive Intelligence Platform Uncovers In-Market B2B Buyers

Series B Funding Led by Bain Capital Ventures

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 19, 2015 – 6sense today announced a $20 million Series B funding round led by new investor Bain Capital Ventures, bringing the company’s total financing to $36 million. The new funding comes less than a year after launching the company’s SaaS-based predictive intelligence platform and closing Series A funding. Early investors Battery Ventures and Venrock also contributed to the round. BCV partner Indy Guha will join the 6sense board.

6sense has quickly emerged as an early leader in the fast-growing market for predictive B2B marketing and sales intelligence. Founded in April 2013 by CEO Amanda Kahlow, 6sense has assembled an impressive enterprise customer roster including Cisco, Dell, NetApp, VMware, NetSuite, CSC, Lenovo, CBS Interactive and more.

The 6sense platform is used by B2B sales and marketing leaders to identify net-new, in-market buyers while prioritizing known prospects – predicting with 85 percent accuracy who will buy, when and how much. Early results include:

• 9X increase in marketing-to-sales qualified lead conversions;

• 2/3 fewer sales touches to convert leads to opportunities;

• 2X increase in opportunity size with 70% new prospects found by 6sense; and

• Identification of a $900K prospect that was about to buy from a competitor, but instead became the company’s third largest deal in their history.

The 6sense platform combines robust data science and machine learning with a groundbreaking one-of-a-kind “Buyer Intent Network” that captures time-based, structured and unstructured behavioral data from thousands of sources. The platform currently processes billions of rows of buyer intent data every month from search engines, industry trade publications, blogs, forums and communities. As a result, 6sense is uniquely equipped to help its customers identify prospects in new markets and verticals – or find buyers with a need for products in new market categories.

“B2B lead generation is grossly broken, and it’s time to replace guesswork with real intelligence,” said 6sense’s Kahlow. “In today’s cross-channel digital world, your prospects are self-educating – most buyer activity is anonymous and 70% of the buyer’s journey takes place before a prospect hits your web site or fills out a lead gen form and agrees to be called or emailed. Unlike simple predictive lead scoring tools that wait for a lead to come in, 6sense proactively identifies new buyers early in the buyer’s journey – so our customers can get ahead of their competition and hyper-target their sales and marketing efforts to accelerate growth.”

“Predictive intelligence will fundamentally transform B2B marketing and sales, and 6sense is uniquely positioned with major enterprise customers that have demonstrated what’s possible,” said BCV’s Guha. “We believe enterprise software is moving to a 3.0 model – which we call Adaptive Software – where machine learning and data science are embedded in the solution. Modern marketers are feeling the pressure of trying to harness the data exhaust from increasingly digital buyer journeys. 6sense’s ability to analyze the entire buyer journey is a powerful differentiator.”

6sense will use the new funding to grow its development and data science team, accelerate marketing and sales investments, and expand customer engagement in new vertical markets. 6sense will also host its first annual “INmarket” user conference in July – details to be announced in March.

6sense predicts who will buy what products when and where they are in the buyer’s journey. The company’s predictive intelligence platform helps B2B marketing and sales leaders uncover net-new, in-market prospects based on powerful data science and billions of time-sensitive intent interactions.
