CloudBees Acquires FoxWeave, Embeds Integration Services and Delivers App-centric Integration

Becomes the first development PaaS to offer native support for data migration, sync and cloud service integrations

Brussels, Belgium - July 24, 2013 - CloudBees, Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced the acquisition of FoxWeave, a provider of cloud-based data integration services. The acquisition brings native data migration and synchronisation services to the CloudBees Platform, and simplifies the way developers can compose services and weave them together with PaaS-hosted application logic - or what CloudBees calls app-centric integration. The acquisition continues the company's strong growth with the addition of a key platform investment.

Applications today are increasingly part of the "subscription economy," making use of data from many sources and interacting with hosted services. This is particularly true of new applications being built in the cloud. Connecting to many data sources and services, migrating and mapping data between them, and keeping systems in sync is an ongoing source of pain that the FoxWeave technology relieves, often without having to write any code. The acquisition of FoxWeave establishes CloudBees as the first PaaS vendor to offer native facilities for service and data integration, further upping the game on the time-to-market advantage of PaaS and bringing an app-centric integration view to developers.

"Every business today has more than the traditional set of on-premise data stores. Businesses are also connected with a fast growing number of critical SaaS services, too," said Sacha Labourey, CEO, CloudBees. "Moving and synchronising data between these services using a growing set of APIs is an ongoing chore - a really vexing problem that has to be solved. With FoxWeave, CloudBees now offers a service that makes integrations easy to setup and maintain. Not only can users quickly integrate these services' data streams and applications, but developers can easily incorporate them into applications. This is what the coupling of the FoxWeave service and the CloudBees PaaS enables - and this capability is absolutely unique in the market today."

Olery is an Amsterdam-based provider of easy-to-use tools for the leisure and hospitality industry that provide insight into online reputation and social media presence. "Our sales and marketing team is using the FoxWeave service to synchronise certain transactions between Salesforce.com, Gmail, Unbounce and Wufoo," said Wilco van Duinkerken, CTO, Olery. "To have our internal users create a bunch of point integrations without a common tool or service is a recipe for a maintenance nightmare. Using FoxWeave as the service that ties it all together, the integrations are centralised in one place and easily maintained by the Olery sales and marketing team. From their standpoint, it just works and from IT's standpoint, we are able to focus on enhancing and improving the Olery service for Olery customers - not on internal integration issues. That's where our priorities need to be."

The combination of FoxWeave and the CloudBees PaaS enables developers to manage connections and data transfer between more than 20 hosted services, including SalesForce, Zoura, Zendesk, SendGrid, MySQL DB and Cloudant. Users also can run data migration and synchronisation tasks in the cloud, on CloudBees or on-premise, and achieve app-centric integration by mashing up application logic and service integrations into an integrated system. Finally, users can also build their own custom connectors, typically with no programming involved.

"APIs are driving a new economy and a new wave of innovation. With FoxWeave, CloudBees is going to make it easier for PaaS application developers to consume these APIs in intuitive and maintainable ways," said Tom Fennelly, Founder and CEO, FoxWeave. "As CloudBees customers build and run new versions of their applications, being able to easily mesh data synchronisation and migration with their applications certainly will give them a new competitive advantage."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
