Open Wallet

This week’s announced
acquisition of Global 360
by OpenText had me scratching my head.  Didn’t OpenText only just recently
acquire Metastorm
?  My mom would no
doubt disapprove of OpenText’s voracious appetite for BPM firms:  she always taught me to take at least enough
time to put my fork down between bites.

There’s plenty of speculation around as to why OpenText would
acquire two very different BPM vendors in such a short interval.  Perhaps time will clarify everything, though
that’s certainly not a given:  there are
plenty of acquisitions that make no sense when they happen, and no sense
afterwards either.  Still, while I give
OpenText the benefit of the doubt, there are a couple of messages in this
acquisition I find hard to avoid:

In the scheme of things, though, OpenText has done us all
some good here, adding energy to an already frothing product category.  Thanks in part to transactions like these,
the BPM market continues to be an exciting and occasionally even surprising
place to work.
