Per Google Finance, Ciena is "a provider of communications networking equipment, software and services that support the transport, switching, aggregation and management of voice, video and data traffic."

ClickSoftware is "a provider of software products and solutions for workforce management and optimization for the service sector. The Company derives revenues from the licensing of its software products and the provision of consulting and support services. ClickSoftware’s solutions are grouped into four main suites which together comprise its Service Optimization Suite: Field Service Daily Suite, Mobility Suite, Roster (Shift Planning) Suite and Forecasting and Planning Suite."
