Boston technology consultant Yankee Group Research Inc. has a new owner -- again.

Alta Communications, a Boston private equity firm that specializes in media and telecommunications investments, and Emily Green, a former executive at Yankee Group rival Forrester Research in Cambridge, have bought Yankee from Decision Matrix Group LLC, the company disclosed yesterday. Terms were not disclosed.

They are Yankee Group's fourth owner in nearly a decade. Decision Matrix, which owned the firm for 18 months, had bought it from Reuters Group, a publisher of news and financial data.
