BEA Joins Systinet SOA Governance Interoperability Framework

  • 12 April, 2006 08:01

<p>Systinet, a division of Mercury Interactive Corporation (OTC: MERQ) and a leading software provider of the foundation for SOA governance and lifecycle management, today announced that BEA Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: BEAS), a world leader in enterprise and communications infrastructure software, has joined the Systinet SOA Governance Interoperability Framework. The Systinet SOA framework provides a standards-based approach to governing and managing SOA initiatives across multiple vendors and technologies.</p>
<p>By joining the Systinet SOA Governance Interoperability Framework, BEA customers benefit by making their SOA deployments easier to manage, control, and scale while also dramatically improving the visibility and quality of SOA information. In June 2005 Systinet announced that BEA would OEM Systinet Registry as a BEA branded, distributed, and supported component of the AquaLogic product family. Acting as a system of record, the Service Registry is a central and necessary part of the framework.</p>
<p>Also being added as a participant of the Systinet SOA Governance Interoperability Framework is the BEA AquaLogic Service Bus. AquaLogic Service Bus has the capability to automatically consume and share information to and from AquaLogic Service Registry. With BEA’s participation in the Systinet SOA framework, customers using AquaLogic Service Bus and AquaLogic Service Registry now have the capability to automatically consume information from other partners participating in the program.</p>
<p>“Effective SOA governance needs to span all domains of the architecture including security, integration, management, development, and orchestration,” said Jeff Pendleton, vice president of marketing for BEA. “The Systinet SOA framework makes it possible to publish services and associated information to a reference system, AquaLogic Service Registry, in a standardized way, greatly improving and simplifying SOA governance.”</p>
<p>The Systinet SOA framework helps address customer demand for highly interoperable, multi-vendor solutions for enterprise SOA. The framework is a set of technologies, standards, and best practices that enables easier interoperability between the SOA management, security, business integration, composite application, business intelligence, and enterprise information integrator vendors that are included in the framework. Through the Systinet SOA framework, member companies have the ability to publish services and associated policies in a standardized way, be alerted about changes within the registry, and have access to metadata about the range of services that make up the customer’s SOA. Ten partner companies already support the Systinet SOA Governance Interoperability Framework.</p>
<p>“Customer’s benefit from the Systinet SOA Governance Interoperability Framework by easily deploying and leveraging proven and integrated industry-leading products for enterprise SOA initiatives,” said David Butler, vice president of evangelism at Systinet. “The BEA AquaLogic product family already delivers one of the broadest lines of service infrastructure products available to ensure successful SOA deployments. By joining the Systinet SOA framework, BEA will significantly strengthen this effort, making SOA easier to deploy and govern.”</p>
