Red Hat acquires BPM technology from Polymita
Acquisition reinforces Red Hat’s move into business process management
Red Hat, a global provider of open source solutions, has acquired business process management (BPM) technology developed by Polymita Technologies S.L.
Details of the deal have not been disclosed, but Red Hat does not expect that this transaction will have a material impact on its financial statements for its fiscal year ending February 28, 2013.
According to Red Hat, the acquisition accelerates its entry into the BPM software segment and augments its JBoss Enterprise Middleware integration software offerings.
"The ability to change rapidly is an absolute necessity for businesses in today's enterprise environment. Organisations that do not empower their business users to quickly and effectively modify automated business processes forfeit the ability to remain agile, competitive and relevant," said Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager of Middleware, Red Hat. "Polymita's technology enhances Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio and specifically complements JBoss Enterprise BRMS and jBPM."
Polymita, a Spain-based start-up, has developed a comprehensive BPM platform that empowers business users to become agents of change in their organisations. Its user-friendly interface and workflow capabilities are designed to enhance productivity and collaboration while increasing control and visibility over business activities.
