Carlyle’s UC4 acquires technology company Senactive

UC4 Software, a provider of workload automation and IT process optimization solutions and a Carlyle portfolio company, has acquired Senactive, a provider of event-driven business process modelling technology.

The acquisition concludes a close working relationship in which the two companies have collaborated on new product development and technology innovation over the last three years. The transaction is complete and is effective immediately.
 
Traditional workload automation technologies were designed to manage batch processing jobs and rigidly scheduled processes in a highly structured environment. But as companies move their businesses online, manage global supply chains and move to IT infrastructure as a service, they require automation solutions that can sense and respond in real time to complex, interdependent events. The combination of UC4 and Senactive technologies brings real time monitoring and analysis to the automation of IT processes.
 
‘UC4 is building the industry’s first Intelligent Service Automation solution,’ says Vincent Stueger (pictured), UC4 chief technology officer. ‘As customers deploy a blend of on-premise, virtual and cloud computing environments they need to automate jobs, processes, applications and services in an on-line and on-time world. The combination of UC4 and Senactive is adding a critical layer of intelligence in the automation of mission critical IT processes.’
 
"We are excited to be joining the leader in Workload Automation’, says Dr. Josef Schiefer, co-founder Senactive and UC4 vice president development. ‘Now, UC4 customers will benefit from a stronger understanding of how their IT infrastructure can be optimized by easily managing and modeling IT services to lower costs and complexity.’
 
Senactive’s products will be sold under the UC4 Decision and UC4 Insight brands. UC4 Decision is a complex event processing tool that can process thousands of events per second based on pre-defined process models to deliver real time intelligence to optimized IT infrastructure and service delivery. UC4 Insight is a pattern mapping and advanced visualization tool that intuitively displays event patterns to enable rapid reaction and corrective action  

Since 2002, Carlyle’s European technology team has acquired and invested in 19 small and medium-sized companies, supporting their growth, expansion and business transformation initiatives in the technology space.
