SOA products added to portfolio
One of the distinctive qualities of Software AG is the close ties between marketing, distribution,
and R&D. This leads to marketable products with corresponding sales potential. In the third
quarter, we introduced product expansions in both business lines in response to the high level
of interest in service-oriented architectures.
Version 5.1 of our ApplinX technology allows legacy systems to be prepared for service-oriented
architectures or the Internet more quickly and simply.
Version 2.1 of our CentraSite SOA solution represents the second generation of the product
developed jointly with Fujitsu. The new version improves transparency and monitoring of
service-oriented architectures and enables more efficient reuse of SOA services.
CentraSite promotes cross-company cooperation
We worked together with Fujitsu to start the CentraSite Community, the first standards-based
SOA forum. The Community is a forum for customers and partners offering a platform for
cooperation. The goal of the CentraSite Community is to provide compatible SOA solutions for
the purpose of advancing the implementation of SOA environments. The Community consists
of a total of 17 renowned companies and organizations, including IDS Scheer and the Hasso-Plattner-Institute.
