JackBe Serves as Foundation for Software AG’s Intelligent Business Operations
Darmstadt, Germany, 4/30/2014
Software AG (Frankfurt TecDAX: SOW) today announced that its acquisition of JackBe, a real-time visual analytics and intelligence software provider, was recognized by the Association for Corporate Growth as the Strategic M&A deal of the Year within the $100M category. ACG National Capital is the Washington, D.C. region’s preeminent association for corporate professionals involved in corporate growth, corporate development and M&A. Software AG acquired JackBe in August 2013 to serve as the foundation for its Intelligent Business Operations Platform, which provides analytics and decision management for real-time applications.
“Speed, at a given quality, is a fundamental factor for business success and is the basis of our M&A program”, said Arnd Zinnhardt, Chief Financial Officer at Software AG, responsible for global M&A. “The early identification of strategic technology trends, a lean M&A process and the rapid integration of acquired technologies are key components of our value-add to customers. I am therefore extremely pleased to see the strategic nature of our acquisition of JackBe recognized by such a prestigious organization”.
The real-time analysis and visualization of massive amounts of data is increasingly becoming the basis for fast and intelligent business decisions. With the capabilities of JackBe integrated in its Intelligent Business Operations platform, Software AG has been able to provide customers with a comprehensive 360-degree view of operational processes by combining live, historical and transactional data with machine-to-machine communications.
Ultimately, Intelligent Business Operations 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).
The JackBe transaction was one of the more high profile Big Data deals of 2013, recently winning the M&A Advisor Deal of the Year award. It also highlights the ability to transition Washington-based technology provided to the US government into the commercial industry.
