Rogue Wave Software Acquires ILOG Visualization for C++ Products from IBM
Rogue Wave Software has announced that it finalized an agreement to acquire IBM’s ILOG Visualization for C++ Products. This acquisition adds high-performance data visualization capabilities to the company’s existing portfolio of cross-platform, HPC development tools and embedded components.
In a company press release, Rogue Wave also stated that “Existing ILOG customers can be assured that their products will continue to be developed and supported by a company with specific expertise and dedication to high-performance development in C++.”
Since its inception in 1989, Rogue Wave, and its product SourcePro C++, has been recognized as a leader in C++ tools. These tools have been used to build mission-critical, high-performance applications. Leveraging this position, the company made strategic acquisitions that expanded its capability to support customers building data-intensive applications deployed on parallel architectures. With this acquisition, Rogue Wave extends its customers’ current ability to develop highly-portable, high-performance, data-intensive applications, with the ability to build exceptionally sophisticated data visualizations.
Prior to this acquisition, the flagship products in Rogue Wave’s portfolio included:
• The original SourcePro C++ product line
• TotalView debugger to allow developers to more easily create high-quality parallel code
• ThreadSpotter for performance optimization
• IMSL Numerical Libraries for high-speed, mathematical and statistical computations.
“I’m pleased to welcome the ILOG Visualization for C++ products to the Rogue Wave family,” said Brian Pierce, CEO of Rogue Wave Software. “Rogue Wave’s long-standing expertise in C++ will ensure that the developers using these products will have the support they need, as they continue to build and enhance their mission-critical applications.”
The Rogue Wave Visualization for C++ product family offers a powerful cross-platform environment for rapid development of highly visual, massively distributed applications. It includes:
• A powerful GUI builder with a rich set of common UI controls (such as buttons, sliders, text fields, trees and spread sheets)
• Data-aware controls with point-and-click connectivity to common data sources
• An abstraction layer for C++ access to a wide range of object and relational database management systems
• High-performance data visualization components that render charts graphs and maps at exceptionally high-speed, allowing developers to build highly interactive and intuitive data visualizations
• A highly scalable framework for synchronizing the data flow among hundreds of highly graphical, data-intensive, distributed and cooperating user interface clients.
