Datadog Inc (NASDAQ:DDOG), a New York-based monitoring and analytics platform, outpaced its IPO expectations to the tune of a $648 million offering and a $7.83 billion valuation.
The company offered 24 million shares at $27 per share, beating its revised-up range of $24 to $26.
For a moment, though, one major tech player had other ideas.

Ping Identity Holding Corp (NYSE:PING), an enterprise security platform provider based in Denver, raised $288 million, in-line with expectations. The company offered 12.5 million shares at $15 per share, the midpoint of its $14 to $16 projected range.

Exagen Inc (NASDAQ:XGN), a producer of blood tests for autoimmune diseases, raised $50 million after pricing its shares at $14, the low end of its range.
The money raised matched expectations, but the company had to offer an extra 300,000 shares to get there, bumping up its IPO to 3.6 million shares.
The company debuted at $16.80 and has risen to $16.99, beating its offer price by 21%.
