IBM Boosts Middleware with Trigo Buy

IBM's planned acquisition of Trigo Technologies will extend the portfolio of the world's biggest computer company with middleware offerings that manage the flow of product information.

California, U.S.-based IBM says the purchase—for an undisclosed amount—will be completed in the second quarter.

Trigo and IBM have grown closer in the last few years. Trigo's technology has been developed around some of IBM's WebSphere offerings. In that vein, the merger serves as a natural conclusion to the partnership between the two.

Trigo Technologies is based in Brisbane, CA, U.S, adjacent to San Francisco, CA, U.S. It also operates in Amsterdam and Bangalore, India. The company has 150 employees.

IBM has been building its portfolio of middleware technology for the past five years. But in the last few months, "we've focused on taking an industry-by-industry perspective of how to package those middleware solutions, so that we can address the top issues that businesses are facing," said Paraic Sweeney, IBM's vice president of product information management solutions.

One of those issues is coordinating the flow of data around the products that customers must manage from the manufacturer, to distributor, through sales channels, and on to end buyers.

Trigo makes software that keeps track of information that accompanies products and parts. (NewsFactor)
