OpenLogic acquired by Rogue Wave Software

27 August 2013



Rogue Wave Software has acquired OpenLogic, a provider of cloud-based open source software management solutions, support, and consulting. Following the deal, the OpenLogic team will continue to provide customers with the same level of service and support that they have experienced in the past, but with the additional resources of a much larger organisation.

‘Rogue Wave has a rich history of providing market-leading commercial frameworks and tools used by developers to build world-class applications,’ said Brian Pierce, CEO of Rogue Wave. ‘With the acquisition of OpenLogic, we can be an even better partner in the application development process by enabling developers to complement their own custom code with leading commercial and open source tools and components. OpenLogic’s world-class team, with its unrivalled open source expertise, is a tremendous addition to the Rogue Wave family.’

OpenLogic’s OLEX (OpenLogic Exchange) platform was designed from its inception as a cloud-based SaaS solution. From their web browsers, developers can utilise OLEX to provision thousands of open source packages, set governance policies for the use of open source software, and scan their applications for open source code. In addition, OpenLogic’s open source expertise extends to enterprise-grade support for more than 850 open source packages, as well as training and consulting services designed to help users optimise their implementation of open source software.

Steven Grandchamp, CEO of OpenLogic, added: ‘Rogue Wave’s size and market reach will be of tremendous value to OpenLogic’s customers. The adoption of open source software is growing at an increasing rate, and Rogue Wave’s customers now have a single vendor solution combining the open source usage with their commercial library usage.’
