Multinational software company Altova announced yesterday a new trio of server software offerings that are aimed at helping IT professionals more easily automate business processes in the enterprise.

The new product line covers Windows, Linux and Mac OS: FlowForce Server is intended to manage the orchestration of events, triggers, and the automation of workflows and processes through a Web interface; MapForce Server automates any-to-any (XML, database, flat file, EDI, Excel, XBRL, Web services data) data mapping and aggregation processes; StyleVision Server automates multi-channel report generation in HTML, PDF, RTF, and Word (Open XML) formats.

The Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) and Linux (64-bit) versions of all three are available now; Mac OS (64-bit) will be available in May. All are sold under an annual licensing model based on the number of available CPU-cores in the server, though each is available for a free 30-day trial.
