Microsoft Buys All of Engyro, Part of Dundas

Two Microsoft partners -- Engyro Corp. and Dundas Data Visualization Inc. -- closed deals the week of Microsoft Tech-Ed to join Microsoft or to sell their intellectual property to the software giant.

Microsoft bought Cincinnati-based Engyro outright. Engyro products extend Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 to connect with management and ticketing systems and let MOM manage VMware, Unix, Apache and Oracle environments.

Microsoft plans to use Engyro's technologies to extend the enterprise interoperability of System Center Operations Manager 2007. "This alliance will further Microsoft's commitment to its customers' longer-term need for interoperable enterprise solutions and further the System Center family of solutions," the company's announcement said.

Engyro also developed products extending IBM Tivoli and Oracle products.
Toronto-based Dundas sold three of its products to Microsoft for inclusion in SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services. According to Dundas President Troy Marchand, Microsoft will incorporate Dundas Chart for Reporting Services, Dundas Gauge for Reporting Services and Dundas Calendar for Reporting Services.
