IBM makes a consolidation move with Lombardi

This week IBM announced that they area acquiring Lombardi Software.   I suspect this will be the first of several industry consolidations in the coming months. The market is heating up in the BPM space, and it’s only natural that the major players are jockeying for position.  I wonder who’s next?   And I wonder how well my former colleagues at Lombardi are making out on those stock options (I parted ways with Lombardi in 2006).

Your thoughts?

I’m curious to see what some of you other BPM professionals think about this acquisition, and if anyone has any predictions for more consolidations.  Comments welcome.
