Led by Daniel Saks, AppDirect provides a cloud service commerce platform that allows businesses to find, buy, manage and monitor cloud services from a central location. Led by Julian Gay, CEO, Xendo offers cloud-based unified search across 30 different cloud and on-premise apps to allow business users to find content across the various cloud services they use every day. The service integrates with organizations’ IT security infrastructure. Customers include Netflix, Looker and Alphabet-owned Intersection.
Through the acquisition, Xendo will continue to operate independently but will now also be offered as a standalone app in the AppDirect Network for partners to sell to their business customers. It will also be integrated into the core AppDirect platform as part of upcoming cloud management initiatives that will enable businesses to manage, monitor and use their cloud services more effectively with unified search capabilities.
Additionally, Xendo’s core technology will provide data and intelligent search capabilities for enterprises to enhance connections between employees and business-critical information.
