IBM on Monday announced it has acquired Cast Iron Systems, a privately held company based in Mountain View, CA that specializes in cloud integration software, appliances, and services.
"The integration challenges Cast Iron Systems is tackling are crucial to clients who are looking to adopt alternative delivery models to manage their businesses," said Craig Hayman, general manager, IBM WebSphere. "The combination of IBM and Cast Iron Systems will make it easy for clients to integrate business applications, no matter where those applications reside. This will give clients greater agility and as a result, better business outcomes," he said.
With the addition of Cast Iron Systems to its portfolio, IBM says it will be able to offer clients a complete platform to integrate cloud applications from providers including Salesforce.com, Amazon, NetSuite, and ADP with on-premise applications, such as SAP and JD Edwards.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
