DXSTRO, part of the SRO group and sister company of software provider SRO Solutions, has announced the acquisition of the DataXtend RE (DXRE) software system from US-based Progress Software Corporation.

The DXRE software enables organisations to distribute data from their existing enterprise databases to remote offices and mobile workers, where connectivity may be intermittent or unavailable.

“We are delighted with this acquisition as it will allow us to continue developing the solution as well as providing support for the many existing users of the product,” said Steve Driver, partner at DXSTRO.

“Major organisations as diverse as the US Army and Booze Allen Hamilton have utilised DXRE for many years to deliver data securely and reliably to remote locations and personnel.”

SRO Solutions has been a DXRE user since 2005, as it sits at the core of its SRO Data Replicator (SDR) system which enables users of IBM’s asset management solution Maximo to keep data up-to-date at remote locations.

“SDR has customers all over the world from Canada to Australia and this acquisition will allow us to continue to enhance the product as well develop DXRE to be used by other applications operating on all major database platforms such as Oracle, SQL and DB2,” said Mr Driver.

“We know with the SDR how effective and reliable DXRE is at replicating data to out-of-the-way places like oil rigs, ships at sea and even Antarctica, so by making it more widely available we will be able to help organisations ensure that all their employees have access to the up-to-date data they need to do their jobs effectively and remain competitive.”

SRO notes that the SDR is already in use by shipping companies like Chevron and Boskalis, automatically replicating all or part of the companies’ data and making it accessible across the organisation.
