BASEL, Switzerland & NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Day Software (SWX:DAYN) (OTCQX:DYIHY), a leading provider of global content management and infrastructure software, today announced it has expanded its presence in the social media and open source markets with the acquisition of the founders and key innovators of Mindquarry, an open source collaborative software platform provider. Alexander Klimetschek, Alexander Saar and Lars Trieloff, experts in social media and collaboration, have joined Days product development team.

The entrepreneurs combined expertise in file sharing, task and content management, collaboration and social media technologies will enhance Days product pipeline. In addition, the teams experience with Apache Jackrabbit, JCR (the Content Repository for Java Technology API standard) and open source platforms empower Day with additional resources for their ubiquitous ECM, WCM and DAM solutions.

We are extremely excited to welcome this industry talent to our development efforts at Day. These talented, accomplished technologists are a tremendous asset to our team, said David Nuescheler, CTO of Day Software. They are all veterans of the social media and open source software industry and their commitment to driving innovation and operational excellence will deliver great value to our customers.

Mindquarry is an open source collaborative software platform for file sharing (documents, images, media files, etc.), task and project management, team collaboration and Wiki editing. Prior to halting its commercial offering in October 2007, the company successfully meshed simplicity and functionality, enabling knowledge workers to effectively and efficiently connect with team members, positively impacting productivity through collaboration. Designed to combine integration and consultation services with an open source platform, Mindquarry was developed in Java and built upon a scalable REST architecture with AJAX and Web 2.0-style user interfaces.

Day is the powerful partner we have been looking for. With its first-grade technology and team and clients among the largest enterprises in the world, said Lars Trieloff, former COO of Mindquarry, Day is the best fit when it comes to providing breakthrough innovations in the space of collaborative software and social media.
