SAP Reportedly in Talks to Acquire Tibco

I’m not sure what to make of it, but a report originating in a German publication suggests that SAP is involved in “very advanced talks” to acquire middleware-messaging vendor Tibco.

Citing an anonymous source close to the discussions, German weekly Wirtschaftwoche reported the acquisition negotiations on Saturday.

Even before the German report surfaced, speculation about a potential SAP bid for Tibco could be found.

With its Tibco Silver offering, the reputed buyout target made a recent foray into the provision of software tools to write and manage programs for cloud computing on Amazon.com’s cloud platform.
