OPEN source software pioneer Red Hat Inc announced it has acquired business process management (BPM) technology developed by Polymita Technologies SL, saying the deal accelerates its entry into the BPM software segment and augments its JBoss Enterprise Middleware integration software offerings.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“The ability to change rapidly is an absolute necessity for businesses in today’s enterprise environment,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager of middleware at Red Hat.
“Organizations that do not empower their business users to quickly and effectively modify automated business processes forfeit the ability to remain agile, competitive and relevant,” he added.
Barcelona-based Polymita’s technology enhances Red Hat’s JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio and specifically complements JBoss Enterprise BRMS and jBPM, Red Hat said in a statement.
Polymita’s BPM platform has a user-friendly interface and workflow capabilities designed to enhance productivity and collaboration while increasing control and visibility over business activities, Red Hat said.
