On December 22nd Appfire made its 5th major takeover of 2020 acquiring Artemis Software and its suite of apps. The takeover of Artemis strengthens Appfire’s app portfolio, particularly in Publishing (MultiExcerpt) and Collaboration (Survey and Vote Macros).
All in, the takeover of Artemis adds an extra 20,000 instances to Appfire bringing them to an astonishing 150,000 total instances. These additional 20,000 instances now mean that Appfire’s market share has increased from 9% to 10%.
These 150,000 Appfire instances are spread around a number of key categories, in particular Utilities, Scripting/Automation, Administration, while the takeover of Artemis has further boosted their presence in Collaboration and Publishing.
In acquiring Artemis Appfire saw value not only in in Artemis’ “leading edge” collaboration tools but also “their keen knowledge of developing and scaling cloud products”. Like Beecom, Innovalog, and Navarambh Software, Artemis also has a strong cloud presence and demonstrates Appfire’s willingness to strengthen their cloud offerings.
Following their five 2020 acquisitions, 49% of all Appfire instances are on apps with cloud capability with 2% being cloud only and 47% on cloud, data center, and server. Although Appfire appears to be underrepresented on cloud (58% of all marketplace instances are on apps with cloud capability) they are making a serious investment in moving to cloud.
