SAP acquires BPM software vendor

Enterprise software provider SAP is in the process of acquiring privately held Yasu Technologies for an undisclosed amount, SAP said today. Yasu sells business rules management systems, software that assures that automated organizational routines meet with the business rules and regulations that govern the operation.

The announcement comes a week after SAP competitor Oracle said it was offering to buy BEA Systems from that company's shareholders for $6.7 billion. Like Yasu, BEA offers business process management (BPM) capabilities among its software offerings.

SAP plans to use Yasu's software to extend the BPM capabilities in its own NetWeaver enterprise software platform. The software will be embedded in the NetWeaver Composition Environment, the platform for developers to compose new business processes. SAP expects to complete the acquisition this month.
