Software AG, a provider of Business Process Excellence, recently revealed that the company has acquired the U.K.-based Metismo, which offers a highly flexible and multi-functional platform for the development and mobile device management of apps.
“The emergence of new mobile internet technologies and devices is rapidly transforming enterprise computing,” said Matt Green, vice president of Product Management at Software AG, responsible for group mobile strategy, in a statement.
“The Metismo technology solves the complex issue of cross-platform mobile access to the enterprise, providing our customers and partners with a solution and launch-pad for mobile productivity,” Green added.
Mobile device management is gaining significance as the transformation to the Digital Enterprise will be a major challenge within the next decade. Companies need to be able to manage mobile devices, while ensuring full security. However, through real-time business information, management and control from anywhere in the world, customers will be able to gain a huge competitive advantage.
“The combination of Software AG and Metismo will provide enormous value to customers of both companies through a unique process driven approach to mobile application and a unique rapid development approach across multiple devices,” said John Chasey, CEO at Metismo. “I am looking forward to the opportunity both myself and my team will have through Software AG's global R&D organization and sales structure.”
Due to mobile device management, customers can use their existing IT applications with limits at any location, and at the same time gain profit from a unique level of system performance. The availability of process-driven mobile applications is an important step towards a fully Digital Enterprise.
