In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months.

SOA Software Joins Microsoft Business Process Alliance
Company Provides Comprehensive Integrated SOA Governance Automation for Microsoft .NET Platform

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/03/07 -- SOA Software, a leading Integrated SOA Governance Automation vendor, today announced that it has joined Microsoft's Business Process Alliance. The Business Process Alliance will propel mainstream adoption of People-Ready Processes by offering customers a powerful set of end-to-end solutions for automating Business Processes. SOA Software's Workbench and Service Manager products provide comprehensive Integrated SOA Governance automation capabilities for Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 and Internet Information Services (IIS).

Businesses are increasingly turning to Microsoft to connect their information workers to desktop technologies they are familiar with, and provide their IT Pros and developers with the tools to build, deploy and manage end-to-end business process solutions. SOA Software's products allow enterprise customers to govern the services, processes, policies, profiles, information, and the relationships between them. SOA Software's standards-based Workbench and Service Manager products integrate seamlessly with Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 and Internet Information Services (IIS) to ensure the compliance, security, reliability, and performance of the services they consume and expose, as a governed service platform.

Workbench provides a UDDIv3 and WS-MEX compliant registry/repository interface that integrates with Microsoft BizTalk Server to deliver dynamic, policy-based business process automation. Through its integration with Workbench, BizTalk Server supports dynamic binding to services, dynamic endpoint resolution, dynamic policy implementation, and dynamic policy enforcement. This ensures that business processes implemented using BizTalk Server are tolerant of changes to the services they consume and the policies defined by the enterprise. Without these capabilities, processes are fragile and the true benefits of agility and flexibility promised by SOA remain elusive.

Workbench also provides a comprehensive service lifecycle governance solution. Its integrated lifecycle workflow and policy compliance validation capabilities ensure that BizTalk Server implements the right services for the enterprise at the right time.

"Our membership in Microsoft's Business Process Alliance is an important step for SOA Software," said Frank Martinez, executive vice president of SOA Software. "Integrated SOA Governance automation and Microsoft products allow customers to confidently use BizTalk Server as a governed service platform to automate mission-critical processes in secure, reliable environments, and to expose automated processes to partners."

SOA Software works with Microsoft products including BizTalk Server 2006 R2, .NET 3.0, Windows Workflow Foundation, SQL Server 2005, 2007 Office System, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, IIS, Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server, Active Directory and Certificate Server. The company worked closely with Microsoft throughout the inception and development of Microsoft's ESB Guidance Toolkit for BizTalk Server. The combination of BizTalk Server with SOA Software's Integrated SOA Governance automation products provides a cost effective, comprehensive ESB solution for commoditized business integration.

"We are working with SOA Software on a wide range of SOA initiatives to ensure that our business process management solutions meet the needs of enterprise customers," said Burley Kawasaki, director of product management in the Connected Systems Division at Microsoft. "SOA Software's standards-based integrated SOA Governance automation solutions help customers use our products to quickly implement security-enhanced, reliable business processes."
