BEA Systems Buys Software Maker Fuego

BEA Systems Inc. on Wednesday said it has acquired Fuego Inc., a business process management software maker expected to expand BEA's infrastructure products for building service-oriented architectures.

BEA, based in San Jose, Calif., said it paid $87.5 million in cash for the Plano, Texas, company, plus certain retention and performance bonuses.

Fuego's software for automating business processes would become a part of BEA's AquaLogic product family and serve as the foundation for the AquaLogic Business Service Interaction product line.

In general, AquaLogic products provide the infrastructure for SOAs, a form of loosely coupled application integration that takes functions within enterprise applications and organizes them into an automated business process. An SOA uses standards based on extensible markup language.

"The addition of Fuego to our AquaLogic portfolio means that we are now the only company to offer a unified SOA-based platform to integrate business processes, applications, and legacy environments," Alfred Chuang, chairman and chief executive of BEA, said in a statement.
