Intel buys XML provider Sarvega

August 18, 2005

Intel said Thursday it acquired Sarvega, a software company specializing in XML.

XML is used to describe data independent of software or hardware that simplifies business-to-business transactions, and Intel said demand for XML is increasing as it "promises to address interoperability within the data center ... including security and network traffic routing needs not currently addressed by (Internet protocol-based) networks."

"This acquisition supports our strategy to deliver added value to Intel's computing platforms with products that will help our customers implement end-to-end XML solutions," Richard Wirt, general manager of Intel's software and solutions group, said in a news release.

Sarvega is a privately help company based in Oakbrook Terrace, Ill. Financial details of the agreement between Sarvega and the world's biggest semiconductor manufacturer were not publicly disclosed.
