Software AG, a global leader in business infrastructure software, today formally introduced the webMethods SOA Suite as a proven, best-in-class solution for creating, deploying and managing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) at the enterprise level. Core components of the webMethods SOA Suite include the webMethods ESB for service enablement and orchestration and CentraSite™ for SOA governance. By adopting the webMethods SOA Suite, enterprises can reduce the time, cost and effort required to implement and operate their SOA infrastructure. The announcement was made at Software AG’s Second Annual SOA Governance Summit, taking place today in Stockholm, Sweden.
“The webMethods SOA Suite combines the performance advantages of best-of-breed technology with the cost and other benefits of an integrated product suite,” said Dr. Peter Kürpick, Chief Product Officer and member of the Executive Board, Software AG. “Over the past year, our product offering has grown significantly as a result of the webMethods acquisition and a number of new partnerships. This has given us a SOA infrastructure portfolio that is unmatched in both its performance and the value that it delivers. With enterprise adoption of SOA shifting rapidly to business-critical implementations, we determined that this was the right time to bring to market a more comprehensive solution that fully capitalizes on our industry-leading position.”
The webMethods SOA Suite: At-a-Glance
The webMethods SOA Suite encompasses all of the software components required to enable, orchestrate, manage and govern an enterprise-level SOA implementation. It comes preconfigured with full integration spanning the product suite, comprehensive standards support, embedded best practices and predefined service policies. As it addresses the entire SOA lifecycle, the webMethods SOA Suite can be used to ensure consistent and auditable compliance with user-defined Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) and other Quality-of-Service (QoS) metrics. It also boasts the proven scalability and reliability of the webMethods ESB.
Core components of the webMethods SOA Suite include:
Enterprises can also expand their deployment of the webMethods SOA suite by including the Layer 7 SecureSpan SOA Appliance, available directly from Software AG, as part of their deployment. When deployed in conjunction with the webMethods SOA Suite, this widely adopted SOA appliance can be used to simplify the enforcement of advanced security and policy controls at the edge of the network.
