SOA Software launches Repository Manager, and renames Workbench to Policy Manager

With the launch of Repository Manager version 6.0, SOA Software's first release of LogicLibrary's Logidex product, SOA Software is taking the opportunity to rebrand its existing product line to better reflect the role and function of these products.

Provides The Lowest Total Cost of Ownership In The Industry

Los Angeles, Calif., April 30th, 2008 - SOA Software announced the release of SOLA 6.0 (Service Oriented Legacy Architecture), a major update to its market-leading mainframe SOA Solution.

SOLA solves today’s most critical problem, making mainframe applications part of an SOA in a cost effective manner. SOLA provides customers with a fast and easy process to expose mainframe applications as secure Web Services, and allows mainframe applications to consume Web Services. Using SOLA, customers can leverage billions of dollars of existing mainframe investments when building an enterprise SOA. The SOLA runtime environment runs entirely on the mainframe, eliminating the need for expensive, unreliable and unnecessary middleware. This coupled with SOLA’s Development Studio vastly increases developer productivity, providing faster time to market and lower application development cost. The combination of a highly optimized runtime, no middleware and improved productivity provide the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in the industry.
