Software AG Acquires JackBe; Announces Real-Time Infrastructure Analytics Platform

Software AG announced it is acquiring JackBe Corporation, a provider of real-time visual analytics and intelligence software. Providing rapid deployment and enterprise mashups of different data sources, JackBe will serve as the foundation for Software AG’s new webMethods Intelligent Business Operations Platform. The new platform is designed to provide customers with an integrated, real-time awareness of dynamic operations and processes via visualizations. 

“The amount of produced data is growing exponentially,” said Dr. Wolfram Jost, CTO of Software AG. “Consequently, the analysis and visualization of huge data volumes in real time will become more and more the basis for fast and intelligent business decisions. With the capabilities of JackBe, we support customers' evolution towards the digital enterprise.”

Software AG has acquired JackBe’s corporate office in Chevy Chase, Maryland, its research and development facility based in Silicon Valley as well as its Latin American office in Mexico City. Financial details of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Software AG’s webMethods Intelligence Business Operations Platform (IBO) will enable a 360-degree view of operational processes by combining live, historical and transactional data with machine-to-machine communications into real-time visualizations.

JackBe’s leading portfolio, Presto, will also be available immediately as a standalone version, rebranded as Software AG Presto. It will be integrated with existing Software AG products and solutions, becoming the new visualization and analytics layer across the entire product suite.
