Cisco announced on Friday that it intends to buy Assemblage to function as another asset in its ongoing Internet-of-Everything game plan.
Assemblage produces real-time collaboration apps for shared whiteboarding, presentation broadcasting and screensharing.
Cisco especially touted Assemblage's support for one-click browser-to-browser configurations without requiring extra downloads, plugins, or installations.
Hilton Romanski, senior vice president and head of business development at Cisco, noted in a blog post on Friday that Assemblage's products support at least 40 different file types, hinting at wide-reaching possibilities for the portfolio.
In addition, Assemblage’s experience integrating with third party cloud ecosystem applications like Box and Google shows a close alignment to Cisco’s collaboration strategy and our commitment to simplicity and interoperability.
With offices in San Francisco and Copenhagen, Assemblage's engineering team will be integrated with Cisco’s Collaboration Technology Group to collaborate on web development.
Financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.
