Skyway Software, the award winning provider of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) design and delivery solutions, and GT Software, a leading provider of rapid SOA development tools for mainframes, today announced a formal partnership encompassing sales, marketing, and product integration. The combination of Skyway SOA Platform and GT Software's Ivory product offers a new element to the SOA marketplace -- a solution that can build new services, assemble existing services, while managing and governing reuse across multiple platforms from any type of data source, including mainframes.
The Skyway Software's SOA architecture model, Web 2.0 application model and model-driven environment create an agile and service-centric development solution. A key product differentiator is that the Skyway SOA Platform builds new and assembles existing services while other solutions only assemble composite services. The Platform also manages and governs reuse across multiple platforms from any type of data source. These capabilities result in projects being completed at unprecedented speeds and savings; providing relief for IT departments facing the stresses of application backlog, serving customers and addressing compliance issues.
GT Software's Ivory solution secures the mainframe's position as an active participant in an SOA by enabling the deployment of mainframe-based business services that fuel enterprise initiatives. Now, mainframe developers can graphically assemble mainframe transactions, applications, data, and web services into multi-step, multi-operation business services with no formal training or consulting required.
Rob Morris, senior vice president of marketing and strategy at GT Software, states, "Organizations are looking to SOA as a means to leverage their current systems in the creation of new applications. Our partnership with Skyway Software expands our SOA ecosystem to make it extremely easy for customers to gain even more value from mainframe-based services in the creation of new composite services and applications."
"The great thing about this partnership is that both products work together right out-of-the-box since they are standards-based which goes to the very heart of SOA. Today so many tools are customized yet companies are starting to demand their technologies and solutions to have the ability to automatically work together. We are excited about the partnership between Skyway Software and GT Software in providing seamless integration between Skyway and Ivory," adds David Precopio, vice president of product management and marketing at Skyway Software. Skyway's Team has a successful history of developing proven industry winners. Skyway's principal investor, Daniel Aegerter, and CTO, Jared Rodriguez, were the founding partners of Tradex Technologies, which was acquired by Ariba in 2000 for $5.4 billion.
At the Gartner Application Integration and Web Services Summit in December, Daryl C. Plummer, Group Vice President and Chief Gartner Fellow, said, "Partnerships between mainframe SOA vendors and new web services and web applications vendors will happen because of the basic synergies created between 'stuff that works' (i.e. legacy) and 'stuff that sizzles' (i.e. Web Services). Then you can open up a whole repository of mainframe based services for new development."
