Middleware supplier Bea Systems plans to acquire Workflow Automation to accelerate its enterprise application integration (EAI) strategy in the online business-to-business market.
Under the terms of the agreement, Bea will integrate the privately held Canadian company and its 15-strong workforce into its E-Commerce Integration Division. The division will form the basis of a new research and development facility for building business process flow software based on Enterprise Java Beans.
Workflow Automation's jFlow XML and Java-based business process engine for workflow management will be integrated into the middleware supplier's EAI products, which enable web pages and XML-based data to communicate with back-end applications. The process engine will be relaunched in the third quarter of this year as Bea eProcess Integrator.
Barbara Britton, president of Bea's E-Commerce Integration Division, said: "By linking internet-based business transactions with back-end systems, such as order management and enterprise resource planning, eProcess Integrator will bring a new level of distributed transaction integrity and business process management to business-to-business commerce."
