Bea Systems has acquired Silicon Valley based consulting firm, Component Systems, to boost its Java development and services skills.
The two have worked together for the past two years and Component Systems provided Bea with consulting skills for the early adopter programme of its Weblogic Enterprise Web application server, which was launched about a year ago.
Kim Williams, Bea's director of services marketing, said: "We decided to buy Component Systems after HP committed to provide us with $100 million over three years to set up our esolutions business unit (see VNU Newswire, 8 April, 1999). Our key strategy is components, especially Java, and services needed a strategy to support these other initiatives. This gives us manpower so we have the expertise inhouse."
Components Systems, which has 12 employees, will be housed in a newly formed Component Architecture Group within the firm's professional services organisation. It provides customers with consulting skills to build enterprise applications based on Java, Enterprise Java Beans and Corba.
