Webify and Polaris Partner To Deliver SOA-Enabled Transformation for the Financial Services Industry

PolarisTo Establish A Webify SOA Practice To Deliver Integrated Solutions To Banking Customers Globally

Webify Solutions and Polaris Software  today announced a strategic partnership that builds on the promise of service-oriented architectures (SOA) and Web services.

With the partnership, both companies will work together to integrate the features and functionality of Polaris Intellect Suite GeneS (generalized services) with Webify Industry Fabric to deliver transformative business benefits and outcomes. Per the agreement, Polaris will also establish a Webify SOA practice to deliver integrated solutions to banking and insurance customers globally.

"The Webify Industry Fabric will provide banking customers with the ability to better configure, control and govern complex SOA environments. In addition, the combined service-oriented business application solution from Polaris and Webify for banking, financial services and insurance will further strengthen the position of both organizations as leaders in the SOA space," said Koen Van den Brande, Chief Technology Officer, Polaris Software. He added, "The relationship with Webify will also accelerate Polaris' strategy of delivering SOA-based legacy modernization programs to larger banks, as part of its Smart Legacy Modernization offering".

Globally, service-oriented architecture (SOA) continues to gather momentum as enterprises become more aware of the benefits of SOA enabled legacy modernization to deliver improved flexibility and time to market without expensive rip-and-replace of legacy investments. Gartner Group estimates that there are over 200 billion lines of COBOL code in existence and according to IBM, 70 percent of the world's business data is processed by COBOL applications, and 30 billion COBOL-based transactions are processed daily.

According to Bobby Soni, Chief Strategy Officer, Webify Solutions, "We welcome Polaris Software as a strategic business partner and an integral member of our Alliance program. Webify creates the opportunity for Polaris' rich business content to be made available as a set of loosely coupled and adaptive business services that can be quickly leveraged to deliver businesscentric solutions." He added, "Together, we will provide customers with flexible options for assembling and deploying business content which will lead to a spectrum of interesting and customer-friendly consumption models, ranging from traditional licensing to highly customizable subscription and syndicated offerings."

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...

Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
