SHANGHAI, China, Dec. 12 -- BEA Systems Inc., a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced
the release of BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0, a comprehensive
enterprise service bus (ESB) that is designed to improve the
integration process for enterprise-wide service-oriented architecture
(SOA) deployments. The solution is an SOA integration platform designed
to connect, mediate and manage interactions between heterogeneous
services, legacy applications and multiple ESB instances across an
enterprise-wide service network.
"The same factors that lead a large company to acquire heterogeneous
applications (differing requirements) also cause them to organize SOA
initiatives into different domains -- a typical epicenter being a
business unit. Initially, more than 90 percent of SOA interactions are
confined within a single SOA domain. However as organizations develop a
robust service portfolio the proportion of interdomain interactions
increases as services are used in composite applications developed in
other business units and to automate business processes that span
organizational boundaries. Multiple requirements arise as service use
increases. Performance must continue to meet expectations, QoS must be
assured and appropriate service level-agreements, established. Also,
organizations must ensure that they effectively manage a rapidly
growing portfolio of diverse assets (e.g., services, policies, business
processes) and publicize the availability of these assets," said Jess
Thompson, research vice president at Gartner Research. "This will require
organizations to effectively manage a portfolio of diverse assets
(e.g., services, policies, business processes) and publicize the
availability of these assets. Moreover, as the use of and dependence on
services grows so do the requirements for dependable service level
agreements and effective governance."
For organizations that adopted SOA to align IT initiatives with
business strategies to compete in today's business environment, ESB
technology acts as the essential link between business processes and
services to help enterprises rapidly change with ever-evolving business
needs. BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0 is designed to be a comprehensive,
light-weight SOA backbone to help IT organizations create
configuration-driven and reusable service components, service enable
legacy applications and quickly build new SOA-based applications for
enabling enterprise agility.
"Whether an organization is looking to undertake its first SOA
project or to augment its legacy applications, the new integration and
scalability features in the latest version of BEA AquaLogic Service Bus
can help unlock business value from siloed applications and give
organizations a competitive edge through a more agile infrastructure,"
said Thanh Tran, senior vice president of AquaLogic products for BEA
Systems. "As a result, organizations may increase time-to-market, lower
total cost of ownership and improve ROI."
BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0 enhances BEA WorkSpace 360 degrees
by providing configuration-driven service integration with plug-ins to
the BEA WorkSpace 360 degrees unified design environment. Businesses
may benefit from faster release cycles due to ease-of-use, quicker
time-to-market and increased developer productivity.
BEA AquaLogic Service Bus 3.0 is also designed to serve as the backbone for a flexible, reusable well-governed service network that allows enterprises to help build dynamic business applications.
