The new features and capabilities generated buzz at Datadog Dash 2019 — a conference for customers, partners and MSPs this week in in New York.
Like many cloud monitoring providers, Datadog has been evolving from a point solution provider to a platform provider — introducing capabilities that address application performance monitoring (APM), infrastructure monitoring, log management and more.
Cloud Monitoring Tools and MSPs: Who Has Traction?
Each of those monitoring tool providers has some momentum with MSPs (managed IT services providers) and channel partners. But much of the MSP momentum is up in the midmarket and enterprise accounts. None of the major players has specifically extended down into the MSP-driven SMB market.
Datadog’s partner program is designed for service providers and resellers, along with ISVs (independent software vendors) that want to integrate with the platform.
Datadog Funding, IPO Plans?
Datadog’s most recent funding was a $94.5 million Series D round in 2016, ChannelE2E believes though we’re double-checking to see if any new funding has arrived in recent years. We’re also poking around to see if Datadog is exploring any potential IPO plans.
