Microsoft acquires apps migration company
Apptimum products help transfer applications to new PCs
IDG News Service - Microsoft Corp. today said it had acquired Apptimum Inc. to gain technology that helps Windows users more easily migrate applications from old PCs to new ones.
Apptimum is best known for its Alohabob PC Relocator tool, which allows users to transfer applications to new machines without having to reinstall them.
Microsoft will first offer Apptimum's technology as an optional download for the Windows Vista operating system set to ship later this year.
Apptimum, which was founded in 1998, changed its name from Eisenworld Inc. last year as it sought to expand into the enterprise space. The company is based in Sunrise, Fla.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
