Software AG has acquired Metismo Ltd. and will integrate its leading mobile application development technology into the webMethods integration platform.

The new Software AG product will save weeks of design time. Developers will be able to design abstracted code once, and then create native applications on multiple mobile devices simultaneously. Integrated with the popular Eclipse development framework, the product will employ a powerful abstraction layer to make development extremely easy and quick.
The resulting mobile apps will be created and deployed in native format to take full advantage of end-device features, such as GPS sensors or custom user controls. Pixel-level control of the user interface will ensure full use of each mobile device’s graphics capabilities to produce visually stunning applications.
Software AG customers will be able to leverage investments in current applications, existing data streams and automated processes to easily develop the fully automated office. They’ll be able to easily extend their business processes into the mobile space so employees, customers and trading partners can interact with enterprise systems from anywhere.
