Crittercism, a mobile app performance management startup, revealed Wednesday that it has scored $30 million in its latest round of funding and plans to expand the company and its platform's capabilities.

Crittercism revealed on its company blog that Scale Venture Partners, InterWest Partners , and VMware Inc. (NYSE: VMW) have stumped up $30 million in a series C round.

The firm has raised nearly $49 million since March 2011 and manages 1 billion active mobile users as of March 2014. It says it now employs more than 70 people worldwide.

Crittercism says it will use the money to expand internationally and add engineering, support, sales, and marketing staff. The company's CEO, Andrew Levy, also says in the blog that it has "just scratched the surface of mobile performance management" and plans to add more monitoring and transaction capabilities to its platform, among other things.

VMWare has been spending large on mobile management investments recently as the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend continues to grow. The firm bought the extravagantly funded mobile management company AirWatch LLC for more than $1.5 billion in January. (See VMware to Buy AirWatch for $1.54B.)

It appears that Crittercism is another up and comer to watch in the mobile management space.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
