Cisco Scoops Up Collaboration Startup Assemblage
In a bid to capture more opportunities around mobility and the Internet of Things, Cisco Systems acquired Assemblage, a provider of cloud-based collaboration applications.
Financial terms of the deal, which is already complete, were not disclosed.
San Francisco-based Assemblage makes real-time collaboration applications that can be accessed via a Web browser, allowing them to work on any mobile device or platform without the need for any additional downloads, plug-ins or installations.
Assemblage's cloud apps let users share their screens, along with whiteboards and presentations, in real time. They also can work with other third-party cloud services, Cisco said, including those from Box and Google.
In a blog post, Hilton Romanski, senior vice president and head of business development at Cisco, said the Assemblage team will be rolled into Cisco's Collaboration Technology Group.
"We are excited to welcome Assemblage to our collaboration team," Romanski wrote. "Together, Cisco and Assemblage will provide simple, easy-to-use solutions that help employees work smarter together from virtually anywhere."
