Cisco Buys Jabber!

Big news out of San Jose this morning as Cisco has announced an agreement to acquire Jabber, with the sale expected to close in the first half of 2009.

By acquiring Jabber Cisco beefs up their presence/IM capabilities with an enterprise-grade platform based on open standards and an extensible architecture. Acquiring Jabber gives Cisco (and it's partners) a huge new capability to build applications and extensions around its UC offerings. In addition, Cisco gains a presence into Jabber's existing customer base (with an extensive presence in financial services and government markets).
