HP Finalizes Acquisition of Bluestone

Hewlett-Packard Co. continued to enhance its Internet software portfolio with the announcement on Thursday that it has completed its acquisition of Bluestone Software Inc. Bluestone’s stockholders approved the deal on Wednesday in the stock-for-stock merger.

Philadelphia-based Bluestone Software is a provider of B2B, B2C, and wireless open platform solutions. The solutions are mainly used by customers to develop and manage open systems applications to support trading communities and mobile transactions.

Through the acquisition, HP is adding J2EE-XML-based applications, servers, and tools to its mix. HP’s current Internet software offerings include service management software, Internet service tracking and billing, and e-services integration software.

Bluestone’s software will now become the point of integration for HP’s Internet software. HP Consulting will support Bluestone technologies by providing implementation and integration services. – Jim Martin
