Software AG acquires Built.io to deliver comprehensive offering for hybrid and cloud integration



Software AG announced the acquisition of Built.io, a San Francisco-based iPaaS company. Founded by Nishant Patel, Neha Sampat and Matthew Baier, software vendor Built.io introduced its iPaaS offering, Built.io Flow in 2015, which extends availability of iPaaS to both developer communities and line of business users.

Built.io’s Flow and Embed products will integrate as a single integrated offering with Software AG’s globally recognized webMethods Integration Platform. Customers will benefit from easy-to-use and robust integration solutions leading to accelerated time-to-value, critical to the success of IoT and digital transformation solutions.

With Built.io Flow, Software AG can deliver integration through an embedded offering – a cloud-based integration solution that can be incorporated into any SaaS application. This enables end users to integrate third party data from over 300 sources directly into their application, providing meaningful context and powerful insights.

Core capabilities added via Built.io include instant integration through self-service access to Built.io Flow; a visual integration design experience; and tools that enable non-technical users to connect data in the context of their integration projects.

The acquisition opens Software AG’s webMethods integration capabilities to any Node.js developer and allows for enterprise-wide participation in integration projects. It also opens Software AG’s application and B2B integration and API portfolios to fast-growing developer communities and a near limitless innovation pool – as seen by participation in the upcoming Node+JS Interactive gathering of Node.js developers, taking place in Vancouver next month.

Built.io also extends Software AG’s iPaaS offering to the small- and medium-sized business market. Software AG’s webMethods integration Cloud’s focus on enterprise customers is complemented by Built.io’s extensive experience in addressing the SMB market and in empowering line of business users within the modern enterprise.

“The unified vision guiding Built.io Flow was to make it faster and easier to connect any software, system or device,” said Nishant Patel, chief executive officer of Built.io. “Built.io Flow uses a modern architecture to democratize integration and embed it into any product or SaaS service. I am thrilled that Software AG recognized the potential of combining the agility of our cloud-native integration platform with its proven webMethods platform to enable powerful enterprise integration and digital transformation. With our leadership in cloud integration and Software AG’s leadership in digital transformation through enterprise integration, we are jointly able to offer customers the world’s most advanced hybrid integration platform.”

“This is an extremely significant acquisition for Software AG to expand its position in the growing iPaaS market and we are delighted to welcome Built.io to the Software AG Group,” said Dr. Wolfram Jost, chief technology officer at Software AG. “Cloud integration is at the heart of digital transformation with 80 percent of the work in IoT projects related to integration. In a world of decentralized IT architectures based on microservices, APIs and events, integration is the core capability enabling end-to-end processes and improving customer experiences. Speed and flexibility in implementing integration projects are playing an increasingly important role in business success. Broadening developer participation within the enterprise, within departments and within open source communities demonstrates our commitment to fully addressing today’s customer needs.”
