Convertigo Introduces Open Source Version of Integration Platform for Mashups and Mobile Development

PARIS and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 1, 2011) - Convertigo announced the first open source edition of its core software integration platform. Now, within minutes and at no charge, developers can join the Convertigo Community and start using one of the industry's most powerful integration tool sets to solve enterprise integration problems for legacy, portal and mobile applications.

"Convertigo further demonstrates its commitment to open source with its new software offering and its continued participation in the GateIn and eXo Platform communities," said Jason Andersen, director of product marketing, Middleware, at Red Hat. "Convertigo's Community Edition adds significant value to the development cycle by greatly reducing the time and effort it takes to create enterprise mashups, mobile applications and portals, such as the JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform."

"We welcome Convertigo in the Open Source community. It is great to have such a powerful integration platform to offer to our eXo developers," said Benjamin Mestrallet eXo Platform's CEO.

The Convertigo Enterprise Mashup Server (C-EMS), Community Edition, is available now under an Affero GPL license. The Convertigo R&D department as well as the Convertigo service team will moderate code contributors and product evolution in accordance with open source community expectations.

Community Edition is based on Convertigo's proven integration technology, which mixes and orchestrates data and processes coming from any enterprise or web application. More than 300 Convertigo customers design, publish and deploy next-generation application portals and mobile applications at a fraction of the time and resources it would take using traditional methods. Main functionalities of Convertigo's Community Edition include:

  • Connectors -- for any SQL, REST, SOAP, RSS, ATOM or Microsoft Excel file;
  • Sequencer -- combines, orchestrates and exposes new REST, SOAP or JSON services;
  • Gadgetizer -- feed portals with services and widgets for Microsoft SharePoint, Oracle Web Center, IBM WebSphere portal or any open source portal;
