Crossworlds Software on Monday announced a solution that lets users enable their business processes with Web services.
According to the company, business processes deployed in the CrossWorlds system can be exposed as Web services without writing code. As a result, the software enables users to open up their business processes to customers and, in turn, access customers' processes.
The suite includes the Web Services Connector and a suite of utilities, both of which take advantage of CrossWorlds' Business Integration Management System, thereby streamlining operations and increasing connectivity with customers and partners, officials said.
John Meyer, an analyst at Giga Information Group Inc., based in Cambridge, Mass., said that the management and orchestration of Web services, which includes business processes as well as business rules, will play a key part in Web services.
"It takes more than just a little magic to make Web services happen," Meyer said.
In late October, IBM Corp. and CrossWorlds announced that IBM would be acquiring CrossWorlds in a cash transaction valued at US$129 million. The acquisition was seen by observers as an effort by IBM to strengthen its hand in the e-business infrastructure software market.
