IBM has acquired Cleveland-based software company UrbanCode for an undisclosed amount in a bid to help enterprise customers manage their applications and services.
UrbanCode’s technology will integrate into IBM's SmartCloud and MobileFirst offerings, intending to help customers develop and deliver applications for different platform and work with middleware, databases and business intelligence, IBM said Monday.
IBM said it aims to help business update their mobile, big data, social and cloud applications in a short period.
“Companies that master effective software development and delivery in rapidly changing environments such as cloud, mobile and social will have a significant competitive advantage,“ said Kristof Kloeckner, general manager at IBM's rational software business.
UrbanCode's technology can help cut down the time between updates or new applications to market.
IBM said it will support UrbanCode clients and grant them access to the IBM portfolio.
