Software AG Strengthens its Mobile Capabilities with metaquark Acquisition
New Mobile Features Added to Software AG's Intelligent Business Operations and webMethods platforms
Integrated with the company's IBO platform - which provides analytics and decision management for real-time applications - this provides enterprises with the ability to make fully informed business decisions anytime and anywhere using real-time applications, including those focused on customer experience management (CEM) and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Dr. John Bates, Group Executive Board Member responsible for the Intelligent Business Operations business line at Software AG said: "More than two billion mobile devices will ship globally in 2014. As this market continues to grow exponentially, application developers need an efficient way to create dynamic apps. With the full integration of metaquark into Software AG's IBO portfolio, developers can now build single, cross-operating system apps, testing and managing them from a single platform. An exciting capability is that real-time visual analytics generated by IBO-enabled applications can be scaled to several mobile or wearable devices."
metaquark's mobile technology has also been integrated with Software AG's webMethods Business Process Management platform. Combined with IBO this extends the industry's leading iBPMS (intelligent Business Process Management) suite, in which business processes can adjust and adapt to opportunities and threats in process behavior and big data. An iBPMS can predict problems, recommend pre-emptive actions and make automated, dynamic process changes in response to events in what is rapidly becoming an "open ended" or "customer-driven" supply chain.
Wolfram Jost, CTO and Executive Board Member, Software AG said: "The acquisition of metaquark and its integration in the Software AG Suite is an important development in extending Software AG's agility layer to users anywhere, on any mobile device, in an easily managed and secure environment. This is a game-changing approach to managing dynamic, intelligent business processes and responding to changing markets, competitors and regulations. This brings a new level of speed and decision making to business agility."
Overall, the addition of metaquark's capabilities to the Software AG Suite means that Software AG can now deliver an end-to-end solution for any organization looking for a MEAP (Mobile Enterprise Application Platform). With security and encryption in the front of mind of any Chief Security Officer, functionality such as application geo-fencing enablement, bi-direction data encryption and device remote wipe is more important than ever.
Software AG's Intelligent Business Operations and webMethods Mobile Suite are available today.
