Software AG, a company that has been trying to perfect their ability to produce universal messaging, took one more step towards that goal with their recent acquisition of London based my-Channels. Software AG has managed to take another step towards its ultimate goals because my-Channels is able to provide low latency and therefore ultra fast messaging software.
Software AG will be able to use the company’s acquisition to complement and improve their existing technology in this area. The piece of news is a good one for Software’s client base who will be able to more easily integrate their enterprise and cloud based applications along with their mobile devices.
The company will be able to create a universal messaging layer that will make it possible for clients to stream large amounts of data over any channel they desire. The cloud basis allows the clients to stream this data to any device of their choosing. The acquisition also closes a bit of a weakness that Software AG was dealing with before now as my-Channels will make it easier for their technology to navigate message formats such as MQTT and HMTL5/webSockets.
Universal messaging appears to be the frontier of the future for many companies who specialize in this particular area of the tech sector. Companies that are dealing within the enterprise and are needing to communicate across the web, in the cloud and with any number of mobile devices are finding the need to do so using just one messaging layer. This also makes it much easier to broadcast a company’s data to scores of clients quickly and efficiently.
“This acquisition, as an integral part of our portfolio strategy, will give our customers a huge competitive advantage. An advantage in terms of the performance of their internal enterprise communications today and in the flexibility and scalability provided in adopting new information delivery channels, as they emerge, to external customers,” said Dr. Wolfram Jost, Software AG CTO. “This technology will play a fundamental role in customers successfully and cost effectively implementing their own Cloud, In-memory, Big Data or Mobile application strategies.”
