Following completion of its Staffware acquisition this week, US integration software company Tibco has unveiled how it plans to combine the two companies' products.
Staffware will now become the Tibco Business Process Management (BPM) Group, while the Staffware Process Suite, consisting of its original BPM process engine and components, will be called Tibco Staffware Process Suite.
As well as supporting Linux, version 3.0 of the suite, due in the third quarter, will feature improved Microsoft .Net support and enhanced database and systems management integration.
Work to improve the suite's interoperability with Tibco's real-time integration platform is due for completion by the end of this year, and will allow service-oriented architecture development and deployment.
Chris Phillips, group chief marketing officer at Tibco BPM, said: "The important thing to note is that we will maintain Staffware's positioning as an independent process layer underlying Tibco's integration platform."
Other new features include a process definer and business activity monitoring and enterprise portal capabilities.
"These are capabilities that we wanted to add [to the Staffware Process Suite] anyway, but which we can now add faster," said Phillips.
New capabilities for the Tibco BusinessWorks platform include the Manual Activities plug-in to support exception processing and long-lived application-specific integration processes.
Tibco FormBuilder, for designing, deploying and managing real-time forms and business interfaces, will also be available in the last quarter of this year.
