Open Letter from Xtreme LabsFrom the editor: Today, Pivotal is proud to announce the acquisition of Xtreme Labs. Their leadership in delivering mobile solutions is an important component of Pivotal’s vision on how companies will succeed in the age where mobile, social, big data, and cloud intersect to transform how companies develop applications in a more productive, scalable way.

Over the last six years, Xtreme Labs enjoyed tremendous success helping companies to better leverage mobile—giving them new ways to connect and engage with customers across a variety of platforms and devices. We, personally, have enjoyed working closely with some of the world’s most important brands to approach mobile in new and innovate ways and help solve modern business challenges.

Today, we’re humbled and excited to share that Xtreme Labs will join the Pivotal family, the company that has made a name for itself in a short amount of time as a leading provider of application and data infrastructure software, data science and agile development services.

Why Pivotal? Backed by EMC, VMware and GE, this “startup” shares our vision that the landscape of modern software development has changed. Pivotal’s mission is to help companies fuse data, analytics and the cloud together to create applications that will have tremendous impact on business, society and the world around us.

Pivotal builds on the rich history of Pivotal Labs, its agile software development business which established its reputation as a hotbed of innovation committed to thinking differently about modern software development. When the opportunity to explore a relationship with Pivotal came up, it immediately became clear that we shared a common vision. We truly believe that Xtreme Labs is a perfect complement to Pivotal, helping to extend their reach to enterprise companies who want to build rich, engaging and scalable mobile experiences for customers.

When combined, Pivotal and Xtreme Labs will be able to deliver the engineering prowess to build world-class applications and deliver them to customers across any device–web, mobile and others. Our customers will gain the expertise around big data, analytics, and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) that Pivotal delivers to customers across the globe. Our employees are equally excited about the opportunity to work together with the Pivotal team to bring new mobile innovations to market.

The best of what you know about Xtreme Labs continues. We will operate as usual, building best-in-class mobile experiences for the world’s most influential brands.

This is not an end, but a start to a much bigger and better mobile world. We are excited about the next chapter for Xtreme Labs and the opportunity that lies ahead for us as a part of Pivotal.
