Bluenog is an enterprise software and solutions company.[1] The company's flagship product is Bluenog ICE,[2] an enterprise 2.0 application development platform built on pre-integrated open source[3] content management,[4] collaboration, enterprise portal and business intelligence[5] projects. Headquartered in Piscataway Township, N.J., Bluenog is also a Red Hat, Oracle and Actuate[6] partner.

History[edit]

Bluenog was formed in 2006 to address the growing needs of companies looking to leverage Web 2.0 functionality[7] using both open source and commercial software. The company secured $4 million in venture capital from NewSpring Capital in 2008[8] in order to expand the company's products and services offering. Bluenog received an additional $1 million through New Jersey's Edison Innovation Fund in April 2009[9]

Products[edit]

Following the venture capital funding, Bluenog released ICE 4.0.[10] The latest version of the product, ICE 4.5, was released in June 2009 at the Enterprise 2.0 conference in Boston,[11] which added among other features increased collaboration functionality, including a secure enterprise wiki maker.[12]

Awards[edit]

In 2009, Bluenog won two technology awards: InformationWeek Startup 50[13] and RedHerring 100.[14]
