Market leader completes fourth Pick MultiValue acquisition in six months
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA—January 5, 2015 – Zumasys, a leading provider of cloud computing solutions for business-critical software applications and ERP systems, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of the jBASE database from Temenos, based in Geneva Switzerland. Temenos will continue to support its customers running jBASE.
Paul Giobbi, President of Zumasys, says, “jBASE was the industry’s first database-independent solution. It’s more contemporary architecture allows Pick-based applications to natively interact with the underlying Windows or Unix operating system, and store data in SQL Server, Oracle and the cloud, which fits perfectly with our vision for the future. We love that jBASE gets out of the way and lets the operating system do what it does best.”
“As the original co-founder of jBASE and manager of jBASE for Temenos, I am pleased to see this technology continue to evolve under Paul Giobbi and the very capable team at Zumasys,” says Clive Ketteridge of Temenos.
“For nearly 15 years, Pick MultiValue customers have relied on Zumasys to support, stabilize and modernize their applications, within the context of their mainstream IT environments, and we are thrilled to welcome jBASE to the family,” says Giobbi. “MultiValue matters to us because it matters to our customers.”
Zumasys has acquired a string of MultiValue software technologies in recent months including:
- AccuTerm™ — In mid-2014, Zumasys acquired AccuTerm™, the leading Windows/Mobile connectivity solution for the Pick Market with more than 16,000 customers worldwide. Pete Schellenbach is now Zumasys’ Director of Product Development.
- MultiValue Dashboard — Originally developed by The Nerdery and recently re-launched on Zumasys.com, MultiValue Dashboard also became part of the Zumasys portfolio in 2014. MultiValue Dashboard allows you to quickly and easily build web-based dashboards using traditional Pick programming methods.
- OpenQM — Zumasys is pleased to announce an Exclusive Worldwide Distribution and domestic support/maintenance arrangement for OpenQM, a cost-effective, high-performance database to run Pick applications. OpenQM, developed by Ladybridge Systems of Northampton, England is an extremely efficient MultiValue database, with a small footprint. The deployment and operational costs for OpenQM is a fraction of other MultiValue databases providing organizations with a lower total cost of ownership for their MultiValue applications.
With the largest team of MultiValue application developers and engineers in the market, Zumasys is in an unique position to help Pick users (D3, UniVerse, UniData, jBASE & OpenQM) enhance and modernize their Pick applications.
