IBM announced it has acquired Green Pasture Software, Inc., a privately held provider of document management software based in Corvallis, Oregon. Financial details were not disclosed. Green Pasture’s operations will be integrated into IBM’s Enterprise Content Management business and Green Pasture products will be available immediately from IBM. This is IBM’s third acquisition in its Enterprise Content Management business since 2002. IBM purchased Tarian’s records management software in November 2002 and Aptrix’s Web content management software in July 2003. Green Pasture Software enables businesses to take advantage of real-time, high-performance document management capabilities to electronically collaborate, edit and manage multiple documents simultaneously. The software helps organizations more easily develop and manage documents that incorporate interrelated parts, such as spreadsheets, multimedia files and computer aided design (CAD) references. www.software.ibm.com/data
