RedHat, JBoss and SOA Software

SOA Software’s products provide Unified Governance Automation for the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform.  This allows customers to confidently use JBoss products as part of a heterogeneous enterprise SOA environment sharing services with other commercial SOA platforms like Microsoft, IBM WebSphere, SAP NetWeaver, BEA, and Oracle, as well as other open source providers.

  • Ensure that services they identify, design and build using JBoss are relevant to and consumable by applications they design, build and deploy using other platforms like SAP and IBM.
  • Make services they expose from applications running on the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across other platforms; and make services they design and build using other platforms like SAP and open source environments visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across their JBoss applications.
  • Promote, ensure and formalize consistent alignment between demand from service consumers and the supply of services through Consumer Contract Provisioning and Enterprise Service Portfolio Management.

SOA Software’s platform-independent Integrated SOA Governance Automation solution promotes the use of best-practices throughout an enterprise SOA program regardless of where services and consumers are planned, designed, built, deployed and operated.  SOA Software’s Solutions offer deep integration with the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform.
