IBM Buys UrbanCode to Speed Updates

IBM (NYSE: IBM  ) has bought automated software delivery company UrbanCode for an undisclosed sum.

IBM announced the acquisition Monday, noting that it's the nature of mobile, social, big data and cloud technologies to require faster and more frequent software updates, and that "waiting days or even months to get an update to clients is no longer acceptable."

UrbanCode's business hinges on speeding and automating the update process, such that if, for example, a business using IBM Worklight technology creates an update or application, it can be deployed within just hours of creation.
