IDC Weighs InAbner Germanow, IDC’s director of networks services, responded to a recent News@Cisco Notes blog that mentioned his favorable opinion of Cisco’s planned acquisition of software companies Metreos and Audium, in which the companies’ application creation and integration environments offer the potential to help further the integration of voice, video and data through Cisco’s Unified Communications technology.He pointed to his full report, co-authored with IDC Analyst Nora Freedman, on the planned purchase, “Cisco Acquires Audium and Metreos to Provide More Robust Voice Application Development Platforms.””Audium provides a VoiceXML (VXML) development platform that allows users to move proprietary interactive voice response (IVR) development and deployment environments to open standards environments,” the IDC abstract of the report said. “Metreos provides an integrated development environment (IDE) that is deployed between the enterprise telephony infrastructure and the applications customers can build, deploy, and manage on the Metreos platform.”
