IT companies in the Middle East are discovering that Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is the best architecture to power mobile apps, integrate cloud services and expose business functionality using cloud APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), says an executive expert in the IT industry.
Dr Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer, Software says that only the webMethods Suite provides a complete and integrated infrastructure for all of these uses of SOA.
SOA is a business-centric IT architectural approach that supports integrating your business as linked, repeatable business tasks, or services.
“Investment in SOA is paying rich dividends as companies start exploiting mobile and cloud computing,” Dr Jost added.
“Software AG takes great pride in our recognition as a leader in the SOA Infrastructure market, delivering cutting-edge, innovative software,” said Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer, Software AG.
We are providing technology and expertise that helps our customers operate more efficiently enterprise-wide and with their customers and suppliers, he added.
Companies around the world are taking advantage of Software AG’s technology to build and govern their SOA infrastructure. SOA has become the de facto architecture for integrating business channels and automating processes.
It has emerged as the preferred architecture for enabling mobile and cloud strategies. Practically all enterprise mobile apps require access to existing business functions and adopting cloud applications and services requires integrating them with existing business systems and applications.
These trends represent ground-breaking business opportunities for companies to reduce costs, improve productivity and customer service, and enhance differentiation.
Meanwhile, Software AG recently announced that it was named a leader by Gartner, a leading industry analyst firm, in the recently published Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic SOA Infrastructure Projects.
The Magic Quadrant examined application infrastructure middleware vendors providing support for the implementation of an infrastructure that is shared across multiple applications, enabling interoperability and governance.
According to the report, “Leaders in this market are vendors able to provide mature ESB capabilities, a range of proven orchestration options and a comprehensive set of SOA governance technologies.
