SAP to acquire India software maker

German software giant snaps up its second company in October; the latest is Yasu Technologies, which creates business rules management systems.

SAP announced on Wednesday that it is snapping up Yasu Technologies, which creates business rules management software.

The India-based company was founded in 1999 and has about 120 employees.

The deal is designed to boost SAP's business process management (BPM) offerings and will be tucked into SAP NetWeaver, which channels the ebb and flow of data to software applications via SAP's back-end middleware.

The Yasu announcement comes just a little over a week after SAP announced that it will acquire Business Objects in a deal valued at more than $6.8 billion , its largest acquisition ever.

SAP, however, notes that the Yasu deal and past acquisitions have been designed to fill in and complement its own products, rather than to double-down on its existing businesses. As a result, the company has been reluctant to throw its hat in the ring to bid for BEA Systems , despite moves by archrival Oracle to do just that.

Financial terms of the Yasu deal were not disclosed. The acquisition is expected to become final later this month.
