ClickSoftware Completes Acquisition of Xora Inc.

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd. (NasdaqGS: CKSW), the leading provider of automated mobile workforce management and optimization solutions for the service industry, today announced it has successfully completed its acquisition of Xora Inc., a cloud-based market leader in mobile workforce management. ClickSoftware acquired Xora for total cash consideration of approximately $15 million, including all working capital and net cash adjustments. Xora will retain its name and operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of ClickSoftware. Anne Bonaparte, the former CEO of Xora, will continue to lead the company as President.

The combination of Xora and ClickSoftware creates a company with breadth and depth for a much bigger market under one roof. ClickSoftware strengthens its leadership position by offering customers a broader range of cloud-based mobile workforce management apps. Xora benefits from ClickSoftware's international presence and access to service resource optimization products. This acquisition will also extend ClickSoftware's market reach into the SMB (Small and Medium Businesses) market and opens a distribution channel through leading wireless carriers.  ClickSoftware, which was already managing the largest community of mobile workers, will now add the 130,000 users of Xora to its more than 500,000 user base and will distance itself further ahead from the competition.

"The acquisition of Xora serves to considerably broaden our total addressable market, providing us a complete portfolio of best-in-class mobile solutions for all business roles, in all size companies, in all industry verticals," said Dr. Moshe BenBassat, Founder and CEO of ClickSoftware. "With the acquisition now complete, we look forward to leveraging the considerable synergies of our joint leading organizations, to deliver leading-edge technology and innovation in mobile workforce management."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.'
