Metastorm is to acquire Spotlight Data, which specialises in process data collection. Process data typically include such information as how long it takes to complete a process and the common order of steps to finish the task.
Last month Metastorm acquired Process Competence, and in August, it acquired Proforma.
According to Colin Teubner, an analyst with Forrester Research, the acquisition of Spotlight Data will give Metastorm and important source of data to feed into the Proforma process analysis engine, which, in turn, optimises business processes.
The Spotlight Data technology will be marketed as Metastorm Discovery and will also capture offline activities within a process.
