VMware buys WaveMaker to float casual developers' boats • The Register

VMware continues to move up the software stack

The software created by San Francisco-based WaveMaker is aimed at casual developers who aren't expertly trained in the coding field.

VMware acquired SpringSource about 18 months ago, and WaveMaker is already part of the Spring ecosystem, so it makes sense for the virtualisation tech vendor to have effectively folded the software into the cloudy arm of its business.

"This acquisition furthers VMware's cloud application platform strategy by empowering additional developers to build and run modern applications that share information with underlying infrastructure to maximise performance, quality of service and infrastructure utilisation," said Rod Johnson, the former SpringSource man who now serves as senior vice president of VMware's application platform division.
