NewsGator Acquires Tomoye

NewsGator announced that it reached a final agreement for the acquisition of Tomoye, which focuses on enterprise social computing built on Microsoft technologies. Via Tomoye, NewsGator adds a large market share of “Government 2.0” installations. Tomoye has experience in enterprise social computing, communities of practice, and cross-enterprise learning and collaboration dating to its inception in 2000. Similar to NewsGator Social Sites, Tomoye’s Ecco social computing software enhances Microsoft SharePoint by adding capabilities, including social media, social networking and communities. The acquisition adds to NewsGator’s support of SharePoint to encompass the Microsoft .NET Framework, Microsoft Windows SharePoint Server (WSS), Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. This combination of product offerings could cover many scenarios from a quickly deployed standalone platform, to an integrated SharePoint WSS solution, to a customized MOSS 2007 deployment; and from intranet collaboration and expertise discovery to extranet customer and partner interactions to Internet communities for customers. NewsGator and Tomoye are both Certified Gold partners of Microsoft. http://www.newsgator.com/ http://www.tomoye.com/
