Red Hat Acquires SOA and BPM Integrator Amentra

Red Hat last week announced that it has acquired Amentra, a systems integrator specializing in service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM) projects, as well as a provider of enterprise data solutions.

In the announcement, Red Hat emphasized Amentra's experience with JBoss middleware plus its overall fit with Red Hat's "Enterprise Acceleration" initiative, announced last month. The initiative is aimed at helping Red Hat's enterprise customers integrate BPM and SOA into their environments, and move more solutions to its open source JBoss Enterprise Middleware platform.

"We are excited to have Amentra become an important part of the JBoss Enterprise Acceleration initiative," commented Craig Muzilla, vice president of Middleware Business at Red Hat, in a statement released with the announcement. "The depth of solution-oriented consulting services provided by Amentra will help enterprises begin deploying JBoss Enterprise Middleware products with confidence."

"Amentra is excited to become part of the Red Hat family," said Matt Ernst, Amentra CEO, in the same announcement. "Utilizing our innovative approach to solutions delivery and our vast knowledge of open source solutions, Amentra will be able to further accelerate its growth and that of Red Hat across the entire enterprise stack and within various key existing Amentra verticals.

With the acquisition, Amentra plans to support its existing customers using its current service model, plus incorporate "synergies" that come from working with Red Hat, Ernst explained.
