Rally Software, which specializes in agile software development tools, has announced that it has acquired Flowdock for an undisclosed sum. Flowdock makes social collaboration software that will complement Rally's agile tools.
"We believe that together Rally and Flowdock answer one of the key challenges facing globally distributed organizations: keeping in flow and prioritizing work across tools, teams and time zones," said Rally VP Todd Olson. "Agile is about cross-functional teams working together, and Rally helps companies do that across distributed teams -- not only development teams, but across entire organizations. Flowdock adds a social collaboration hub for teams to see what’s happening in their world, collaborate, and get work done."
