Welcome Iona!

Welcome Iona!

June 26, 2008 0 Comments

As you've no doubt heard, Progress announced the acquisition of IONA yesterday.

The Actional team has been partnering with IONA since well before this acquisition business started.  It was actually a very good match because a large percentage of IONA's customers run mission critical applications - applications that typically not only have high volume of use, but which are composites of many different platforms and technologies... as most real world applications are.  In many cases, these are applications where revenue depends on the success of the business transactions.  This type of real-world application is something Actional excels at, so the partnership is a great fit and we've generated a significant amount of momentum together.

Of course what made the partnership really work, though, is that both of our teams worked really well together.  The team at IONA have been great to work with all along.  So, let me wish them all a warm welcome. I look forward to working with the IONA team when the acquisition is approved.  'Nuf said!
