WebMethods Inc. has signed a $38 million definitive agreement to buy Infravio Inc., a privately held business integration and optimization software company. The deal is expected to close this month.
Infravio of Cupertino, Calif., offers service-oriented architecture registry and governance solutions. Service-oriented architecture governance enforces policies and procedures that determine how developers, IT staff and business people use a collection of services that communicate with each other.
