RALEIGH, N.C. - —
Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today introduced a powerful new business resource planner as part of the latest releases of Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite and Red Hat JBoss BRMS. The planner, based on the open source OptaPlanner JBoss community project, is designed to help enterprises quickly and efficiently address complex scheduling and resource planning challenges, and increase operational adaptability in the face of rapidly changing and unpredictable business environments.
For modern enterprises, successful business transformation is as much a result of enabling adaptability as it is about agility. By combining BPM, which has often been viewed as a catalyst for business transformation, with capabilities such as rules automation and resource optimization, Red Hat offers customers a powerful, unique, and unified set of tools to help them be successful in their transformation initiatives.
Organizations of all sizes and across many industries must orchestrate and plan daily business operations, such as scheduling, vehicle routing, or timetabling. Many organizations must be able to cope with changing and increasing demands on the business with a limited set of resources, and quickly adapt plans when established processes are interrupted by unanticipated resource changes.
"With a dramatically increasing volume of business requirements and decreasing number of direct resources, development leaders are looking for new methods that emphasize more modern approaches to application development. These new approaches help boost developer productivity, while also allowing the business to play a broader role in the application development process."

Red Hat’s business resource planning technology helps enterprises use limited resources in a more cost effective manner. Applying rules-based technology in conjunction with business resource planning provides a unique and powerful combination that allows for greater scale and adaptability. The planner is included with a subscription to JBoss BRMS at no additional cost. All of the resource planning and business rules management components are included in Red Hat’s business process management offering, JBoss BPM Suite.
In addition to the business resource planner, the latest versions of these products, JBoss BPM Suite 6.1 and JBoss BRMS 6.1, both available today, introduce new capabilities and enhancements such as social collaboration tools, a realtime decision server, full support for deployments on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, IBM WebSphere Application Server and Oracle WebLogic Server, and certified integration with Red Hat’s lightweight application integration offering, JBoss Fuse.
JBoss BPM Suite and JBoss BRMS are available for download by members of the JBoss Developer community. Customers can get the latest updates from the Red Hat Customer Portal.
