Close on the heels of the planned acquisition of Business Objects, SAP makes yet another move – this time a small one – acquisition of Yasu, a very small player in the business rules market. An Indian firm, YASU has quietly built comprehensive rules platforms based on Rete for both Java/J2EE and .NET, and created a promising environment for business analysts as well. Business rules platforms are an increasingly popular alternative to conventional programming to automate decisions, analysis to action, and policy compliance. This popularity is indicated by the strongly growing revenues of most business rules platform providers. With this announcement, SAP enhances its BPM offerings and provides customers with the agility they need to easily embed new business rules in business processes, increasing their independence to create solutions while ensuring compliance. SAP claims that solutions from YASU Technologies will enable customers to encapsulate business rules as enterprise services that are independent of applications. As business process experts build new applications, they can easily reuse and apply these services to ensure that business decision logic, including rules that ensure compliance, is uniformly used throughout their enterprise applications.
