VMware garage sale continues as it offloads WaveMaker to Pramati

May 1, 2013

VMware wasn’t kidding early this year when it said it would divest itself of non-core businesses. In March Clearslide bought Sliderocket from VMware. Now Pramati, a technology incubator, is acquiring the assets of WaveMaker, another acquisition that VMware apparently reconsidered. Terms were not disclosed. Two years ago, VMware purchased WaveMaker and its technology for simplifying the construction of enterprise Java applications and made it part of its SpringSource business unit. As GigaOM’s Derrick Harris wrote at the time, Rod Johnson, who was then head of that business, said Wavemaker made sense because: ” … applications developed with it actually are Spring applications. That means VMware can tightly align WaveMaker and Spring developments to make WaveMaker an even more fulfilling experience, and after simple applications are built using WaveMaker, an organization’s Spring developers can go in and code away to make it work even better. When it comes to developing Java applications, VMware now has something for almost everybody, and it all works together at some level.” The mystery here is that SpringSource and associated technologies were spun off to the VMware-EMC-founded Pivotal startup. Why WaveMaker was not included is unclear to me. I’ve pinged Pivotal for comment and will update with a response. Pramati co-founder and president Vijay Pullur said former Wavemaker exec Michael Harper is with his company, which is expanding into cloud infrastructure. WaveMaker technologies could play a roll in an upcoming cloud venture, he said. According to the press release announcing the news:  ”WaveMaker applications are cloud-ready, highly scalable, multi-device, and backed by a strong developer community that has doubled to 35,000 active monthly users over the last two years. With its long heritage of mission-critical Java application development, Pramati expects to accelerate this growth going forward.” In other words: stay tuned.
