Aquera was founded with the simple idea that enterprise integration should be instant, automatic and reusable. No longer should integration slow application roll-outs or other IT projects as it does in today’s market. Aquera was born out of our many years of experience in enterprise integration. We worked together at SeeBeyond, a public enterprise integration company of the early 2000s. Noticing that little has changed in the technology since those days we set out to provide an enterprise-class integration platform with the simplicity and speed needed for today’s IT infrastructure. Aquera achieves this mission with its innovative platform that dramatically simplifies integration for enterprise application platforms that provide identity management, business process management and business analytics. Aquera accelerates the application platform roll-outs and the expected ROI by taking integration out of the critical path and instantly increasing the number of connected cloud and on-premises applications, databases, directories and devices. The results are dramatic time and cost savings in development and maintenance, an agile IT architecture, and top line revenue and productivity benefits with employees, partners and customers.
