Enterprise Management Software Company Software AG Buys Cloud Platform Company LongJump
Enterprise management software company Software AG has bought Santa Clara, California-based cloud platform company LongJump. The company, which has headquarters in Germany, will continue to provide LongJump’s Platform-as-a-Service products.

Software AG offers a range of big data, integration and business process solutions designed to enable its customers to optimize processes and provide a better service in an era of social collaboration and cloud and mobile solutions. The company has been in operation for over 40 years and operates in 70 countries with around 5,300 employees.

LongJump will be incorporated alongside Software AG’s ARIS, Terracotta and webMethods solutions. This will enable the company's customers to deploy solutions through their on-premise facilities or through public or private clouds and hybrid environments. LongJump will also enable application utilizing models and templates where no coding is required. Applications will also be automatically mobile-optimized with built in access-based security and enterprise authentication policies.

"The digital enterprise is all about real-time business insights driving fast decisions and faster reactions," explainedWolfram Jost, CTO at Software AG. “With this latest acquisition we have taken a major step in optimizing both the business knowledge and IT skills needed to develop flexible, business process driven, situational applications and deploy them rapidly wherever they are needed.”

"More people across the organization can now participate in processes of innovation and differentiation," says Pankaj Malviya, CEO and Founder of LongJump. "LongJump can now leverage Software AG’s strength in enterprise connectivity and business process to provide business users and IT departments with more agility to respond to changing business requirements, automate their situational processes, improve team data sharing and integrate with systems of record."
