Global IT giant IBM has completed the acquisition of Paris-based IT company ILOG. The deal was worth approximately $340 million. ILOG will now become part of the IBM WebSphere software portfolio.

ILOG offers technologies for analysts, business managers, developers and architects to use to improve their business processes. The company has 850 employees and over 2,500 customers in 30 countries around the world.

By adding ILOG technology to its portfolio, IBM will significantly strengthen its leading position in business process management (BPM) and SOA, as well as broaden the range of rule management tools for information and application lifecycle management.

Tom Rosamilia, general manager of IBM WebSphere Software, said: "As a leader in business rules, optimization, visualization and supply chain management software, we are pleased to welcome the ILOG customers and the ILOG employees to the WebSphere family. The acquisition of ILOG is an important element within our overall SOA strategy and the key addition of the ILOG BRMS to IBM's BPM portfolio will help IBM clients to become more dynamic. ILOG brings significant new capabilities to IBM that will provide agile, flexible applications for real-time response and confident decision-making."
