SAN FRANCISCO – March 16, 2016 – Software analytics company New Relic, Inc. (NYSE:NEWR) today announced customer success in Australia, with leading brands including carsales.com Ltd, domain.com.au, and Fairfax Media trusting New Relic to provide tools to help them manage their digital initiatives and deliver great software. Since its formation, New Relic has prided itself on being a pure-play, multi-tenant SaaS vendor. As a result, New Relic’s customers can enjoy software analytics with the many benefits of the SaaS model, including the ability to deploy in minutes, automatic upgrades, and not having additional on-premise hardware or software to manage.
“We are very excited about the strong foundation of customers that New Relic has built in Australia, and look forward to spending time further understanding the market, understanding their businesses, and building the best product and offering for the market,” said Hilarie Koplow-McAdams, President, New Relic. “When we look at Australia, we see a lot of great companies that can benefit from the insights New Relic provides for how their software is working, how it is impacting their customer experience, and ultimately, how it is driving their business.”

About New Relic Software Analytics Cloud
A multi-tenant, integrated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, the New Relic Software Analytics Cloud is designed to enable companies to understand every customer's experience at a granular level across a vast range of dimensions. Dimensions can be related to performance (timing, errors, crash), user experience (sessions, interactions, pageviews), business outcomes (SKUs, revenue, customer ID), geography (country and zip code of ISP), or even customer-added attributes. Underpinning the New Relic Software Analytics Cloud to make sense of this massive amount of data is NRDB, which is designed to process more than two million events per second. As part of New Relic’s scalable cloud-based architecture, NRDB provides companies a powerful analytics engine, without organizations having to invest the time and expense to build and maintain their own.
