Red Hat will announce a new line of high-powered software — Red Hat Enterprise Applications — today in its latest bid to win more enterprise business.

According to CNET News, Red Hat has developed high-end software designed to run the most sophisticated applications for portal management. The new suite is designed to run on top of its Red Hat Enterprise servers — the Linux software firm’s first major bid for enterprise applications.

CNET reported Monday morning that Dunkin’ Donuts, the German postal service and a European retailer already are using parts of the enterprise application line.
