IBM to Expand International Presence Through Green Hat Acquisition

IBM will proceed with the acquisition of U.K. based software company Green Hat, as the companies have entered a definitive agreement.

According to a IBM release, once final, Green Hat will join IBM’s Rational Software business, which will focus on helping businesses integrate applications, create virtual protocols and engage third-party software.

Green Hat was founded in 1996 and primarily focuses on improving software quality and testing solutions for the cloud and other environments.

Traditionally, simulation testing on software programs is costly and time consuming, accounting for more than 50 percent of overall development costs. Green Hat simplifies this process through the implementation of a virtual testing environment.

According to IBM, the virtual test environment allows developers to test software earlier and more frequently while cutting costs and hours.

“This acquisition extends IBM’s leadership in driving business agility and software quality by changing the way enterprises can manage software development cost, test cycle time and risk,” said Kristof Kloeckner, General Manager, IBM Rational.

IBM did not disclose financial terms pertaining to the acquisition.
