The software investment arm of Trilogy Enterprises, one of the largest privately held enterprise software companies in the world, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire four Progress Software businesses – Sonic, Savvion, Actional and DXSI. Trilogy will combine the businesses to form the core of a new “best of breed” intelligent business process, application, and data management company. The new company will be called Aurea Software and will be headed by enterprise software industry veteran Scott Brighton. Brighton currently serves as President of Trilogy Enterprises.
“The promise of intelligent business process, application, and data management – and the ability to provide real-time insights on complex business processes across the cloud, mobile, and social – is the most exciting idea to emerge in the business process management space since its inception,” said Scott Brighton, Aurea CEO. “With Aurea, our goal will be to take these market leading, enterprise-class products and place a renewed focus on creating the next generation iBPMS – with a specific emphasis on enabling critical, high-value business processes in key vertical markets.”
Aurea will adopt the Trilogy model of high customer touch. “Our strategy will center around an extraordinary level of customer focus through a program we call 100% Customer Success. Aurea’s customers should expect a marked increase in the level of investment in and attention paid to them. I plan to meet personally with each and every customer over the first six months of the company’s formation,” said Brighton.
“We will inherit a strong and talented team from Progress that will form the core of Aurea, and we will focus on adding critical resources that will drive customer impact across Account Management, Development, Support, and Professional Services,” added Brighton.
