SOA buy for IBM

WebSphere to be enhanced

IBM is expanding its broad SOA portfolio with the acquisition of AptSoft, a maker of business event processing software.

Also known as complex event processing (CEP), business event processing is seen as a key technology driver for the next generation of SOA. The software analyses vast amounts of system events in real time, searching for trends and anomalies — "complex events" — that may impact the business, and triggers a response process if one is found.

AptSoft's products will sit in IBM's WebSphere line. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
