April 16, 2012 – Data management provider Software AG announced a deal Monday for cross-platform messaging provider my-Channels.

my-Channels provides real-time messaging across multiple platforms. It’s signature middleware offering, Nirvana, is a message-oriented low latency platform used in particular by the financial services sector. In a move to better manage big and unstructured data, Software AG indicated that the deal would extend its enterprise messaging capabilities across in-house platforms and data centers as well as cloud deployments and mobile applications.

Software AG CTO Dr. Wolfram Jost said in a news release that my-Channels offerings will be “fundamental” to Software AG’s portfolio “in the flexibility and scalability provided in adopting new information delivery channels, as they emerge, to external customers.” Expanding business input and access to data was part of the “process-driven” approach Software AG middleware VP Jignesh Shah forecasted for the provider in December.

Software AG stated in a news release on the deal that it would certify operability of my-Channels Nirvana with its webMethods suite before an updated release of Nirvana in the second quarter of this year. With a planned release by the end of 2012, the first fully integrated release of Nirvana is expected to give customers messaging options within the webMethods platform.

my-Channels was founded in 1999 and is based in London. Financial details of the proposed deal were not disclosed.

Software AG has been relatively quiet in terms of transactions since the May 2011 acquisitions of mobile platform provider Metismo and in-memory and cloud vendor Terracotta.
