Datadog (NASDAQ: DDOG), a software as a service company that provides monitoring and analytics for cloud applications, has seen its stock price rise by about 20% over the last month to about $41 per share. The stock is up 51% from its IPO price of $27 per share. There are a couple of factors driving the rally. Firstly, the company posted strong Q3 results, as it broke even on an adjusted basis, while the markets were projecting a loss of about $0.14 per share. Revenue growth was also strong, with revenues expanding by 88% year-over-year to $96 million. Moreover, the company is witnessing increasing adoption of its new products. At the end of Q3, it indicated that 50% of its customers were using two or more of its products, up from 40% in Q2 and 15% a year ago.
