In a time of high growth, AppDynamics retains company culture using Simpplr

"Our goal was to establish a baseline for ourselves and use it to improve engagement. The philosophy behind establishing the initial baseline and moving it forward has always been telling compelling stories that engage our audience."

Get to know AppDynamics


AppDynamics grew from zero to over 2,000 employees since 2008, making it one of the fastest-growing companies in the United States. Acquired by Cisco in 2017, AppDynamics is a leader in application performance management and IT operations, providing a machine learning business monitoring application for the world’s largest enterprises.


Prior intranet fell into disuse—and had been mostly forgotten


The executive wanted to foster a strong company culture, so, after creating a role for an internal communications professional, set out to redesign the intranet in just six weeks. It was no easy task. Employees had little to no awareness of an intranet existed and instead relied heavily on email. Those who had experienced the previous incarnation of the intranet found it filled with outdated content and those who administered it found it difficult to distribute information.


Easy administration, culture-forward content, and in-depth storytelling enabled nearly full adoption

95% adoption

Including special interest and affinity sites attracted employees to a user-friendly, helpful site

60-70% regularly log in

Once employees saw the site, they were hooked. Today, nearly 70% of employees visit the intranet every month.

0% IT dependency

With stakeholder support for teams creating new content, and the ease of administration, AppDynamics was able to launch their Simpplr intranet in six weeks—without involving IT time or resources.
