IT services firm T-Systems has bought the intellectual property of Glasgow-based company Vamosa, which went into administration.
The Vamosa software enables web content to be migrated between different clients.
Peter Row, vice-president, system integration, at T-Systems UK, said most companies have numerous web technologies as a result of buying some in and developing some themselves, as well as merging with other companies. He said different brands within the same companies often develop web tools differently.
The Vamosa software has a strong flagship deal in that it was used to integrate the Sun Microsystems website and intranet into Oracle's after its $7bn acquisition.
Row said that T-Systems came across Vamosa when it was investigating migrating web technologies for some of its customers.
He said clients outsource legacy web systems to reduce costs and simplify, and the Vamosa software will help T-Systems provide web services back in a harmonised and lower-cost way.
Sam Kingston, vice-president and managing director of T-Systems in the UK, welcomed the deal.
"Our due diligence shows that there is strong demand for products and services based on Vamosa technology.
"Many CIOs recognise that web and content management technologies are critical to business operations and sales strategy.
"With the Vamosa Technologies capability T-Systems can tap into a growth market and penetrate new industry sectors," he said.
