At CA World in Las Vegas on Monday, Cape Clear Software announced its intention to integrate its Business Integration Suite with Computer Associates International's Web Services Distributed Management (WSDM) in hopes of providing a richer environment for helping create and manage a services-oriented enterprise.
By leveraging the management features of WSDM with the data integration capabilities of Cape Clear's Enterprise Services Bus (ESB) users will be able to deploy, manage and secure Web Service across the breadth of their infrastructure, officials from both companies said.
"We think the Enterprise Service Bus is changing how people think about the integration of their business applications and information. Their growing popularity as a means of tying applications and data together is creating a need for those services to be managed and secured by the existing enterprise management infrastructure," said John McGuire, Cape Clear founder and senior vice president.
The more simplified integration between Cape Clear's ESB and CA's WSDM make it possible to better manage mission-critical Web Services components built and deployed with Cape Clear's ESB within their enterprise, McGuire added.
Cape Clear executives said they expect to ship the full integration of its suite with CA's Unicenter as an addition to it existing Web services management and security by the end of the second quarter.
Specifically designed for managing Web services, company officials claimed that WSDM is the first solution to support ad-hoc XML, Corba, EDI existing within the same Services Oriented Architecture (SOA). Using Unicenter it can help enable corporate developers to manage brand new services along with their older infrastructure from a single console, a company spokesman said.
"The growing adoption of Web Services means that organizations have a real need to manage and secure those services alongside their existing management infrastructure," said Dmitri Tcherevik, vice president of Web Services at CA. "The integration of Cape Clear's standards-driven ESB solution with WSDM further extends organizations' ability to manage Web Services components within the context of other IT assets," he said.
