Red Hat's JBoss gets BPM facelift

Acquisition expands middleware reach

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Red Hat is continuing to spread out in middleware, and has just snapped up business process management (BPM) tech developed by Spanish start-up Polymita Technologies.

The Linux biz is buying the Spanish firm's BPM platform, which it said would be added to Red Hat’s JBoss Enterprise Middleware, specifically BRMS and jBPM.

A roadmap will be developed during the next several months.

According to Red Hat, Polymita’s BPM software features a user-friendly interface and workflow capabilities that are designed to “enhance productivity and collaboration while increasing control and visibility over business activities.”

Red Hat didn’t disclose terms of the deal.

The deal is Red Hat’s second middleware deal of 2012, coming after service-oriented architecture (SOA) specialist FuseSource in June.

FuseSource is a major contributor to a number of Apache open-source projects, coming out of the enterprise application integration bubble of the early 2000s. ®
