Cisco to Buy Tropo to Build Out Collaboration Portfolio
Tropo's cloud API platform enables developers and businesses to embed real-time communications into their applications.
Cisco Systems is looking to add to its collaboration capabilities by acquiring Tropo, a company that offers a cloud API platform designed to make it easy for developers to put communications into their applications.
Being able to embed real-time communications into applications is becoming increasingly important given the rise of such tends as IT mobility, cloud computing and the Internet of things (IoT), which are helping fuel the growing demand from businesses and individuals alike for the ability to communicate from anywhere and on any device via the cloud, according to Cisco officials.
The deal, which was announced May 7, is expected to close during Cisco's fiscal fourth quarter. No financial details were disclosed. After the deal closes, Tropo employees will join Cisco's Collaboration Technology Group.
