In order to strengthen its collection of developer tools, IDERA, a provider of database, development and test management tools, will acquire Sencha. Sencha is a web application development platform, and with this acquisition, it will be integrated with Embarcadero, IDERA’s developer tools division.
Sencha’s Web Application Development Platform lets companies seamlessly design, develop and test cross-platform web applications for desktops, tablets, and smartphones. According to recent studies, Sencha’s enterprise solution was able to increase productivity for customers as compared to other web application frameworks.
“Sencha’s focus on reducing cost and complexity to develop and deliver web applications is a powerful fit with our development tools business,” said Randy Jacops, CEO of IDERA, Inc. “We are very excited about this space and expect to continue to improve and invest in our developer tools capability.”
“We believe joining the IDERA developer tools family will enhance Sencha’s R&D and go-to-market capabilities,” said Art Landro, CEO of Sencha. “This is a logical step in our efforts to continue opening our product frameworks by making them interoperable with new technologies to maximize customer value.”
Additional details related to the agreement to acquire Sencha have not yet been released.
