Going Rogue (Wave) Over ILOG C++

Rogue Wave Software has finalized an agreement to acquire IBM's ILOG visualization C++ products. The firm will now integrate these data visualization capabilities into its cross-platform HPC development tools and embedded components.

NOTE: IBM acquired ILOG in Jan 2009 and said at the time that ILOG technology would add "significant capability" across IBM's software platform via the addition of the BRMS into its BPM portfolio. IBM said that this included improved rules and business optimization for WebSphere and its information management offerings as well as better visualization for WebSphere, Lotus, and Tivoli products.

Already known for its SourcePro C++ and TotalView debugger products, Rogue Wave says it has embarked upon a mission of "strategic acquisitions" to expand its capability to support programmers developing data-intensive applications deployed on parallel architectures — now with "exceptionally sophisticated" data visualization capabilities.

Rogue Wave CEO Brian Pierce highlights his firm's other key tools including ThreadSpotter for performance optimization and says that the company's "long-standing expertise" in C++ will ensure that the developers using these products will have the support they need.

"The Rogue Wave Visualization for C++ product family offers a cross-platform environment for rapid development of highly visual, massively distributed applications," said Pierce. "It includes a GUI builder with a rich set of common UI controls (such as buttons, sliders, text fields, trees, and spreadsheets); data-aware controls with point-and-click connectivity to common data sources; and an abstraction layer for C++ access to a wide range of object and relational database management systems."
