Inc, a provider of business process management (BPM) and customer relationship management (CRM) solutions that has its global development centre in Hyderabad, has acquired mobile application developer Antenna Software
for an undisclosed sum.
Antenna Software has over 250 employees focused on delivering mobility technology worldwide. The New Jersey-based company also has a centre in Bangalore.
The Antenna-Pegasystems combination will provide benefits including a faster time-to-market and increased flexibility in end-to-end mobile application development, powerful mobile application and device management, and mobile backend-as-a-service coupled with BPM, case management and advanced decisioning, Pegasystems said in a release on Wednesday.
According to IDC, a market research, analysis and advisory firm specialising in information technology and telecommunications, there will be 1.3 billion people in the mobile workforce by 2015. And, to serve today’s mobile users, applications must be prepared for multiple mobile platforms and for more than 250 different screen sizes.
Traditional mobile technology can lead to separate channel-specific applications, which hamper customer service and efficient operations, said Alan Trefler, founder and chief executive officer of Pegasystems.
“We believe that mobile devices should seamlessly operate with processes and cases to drive work to done. Pega and Antenna coming together offers our collective clients state-of-the-art mobile development, responsive UIs, device management and cloud-based backend-as-a-service,” he added.
