SOAMatrix Software Nominated for SYS-CON's "SOA World Magazine Readers' Choice Awards"

SOAMatrix Software Nominated for Six Categories in SYS-CON's "SOAWorld Magazine Readers' Choice Awards"

SOALayers is a comprehensive SOA platform designed to assemble, manage and govern composite enterprise applications. It enables business process composition, integration, governance and policy management, and SOA infrastructure management.

The platform delivers its capabilities using three components - SOAIntegrator, SOADirector, and SOAStore. SOAIntegrator facilitates process, service and data integration, including human workflow automation. SOAStore provides design time SOA infrastructure and metadata management across artifacts like process definitions, schemas, access control rules and business policies. SOADirector enables runtime governance and policy enforcement for increased business process visibility and traceability.

As a platform, SOALayers has a Studio to build composite applications and an enterprise service bus (ESB) for integration, mediation and loose coupling. Enterprise and inter-enterprise services are wired using a process server and a business rules engine for greater flexibility in adopting policy changes rapidly. Process automation is extended to human workflows to support requirements like reviewing, approving, escalating, and exception/error handling.

SOADirector, a component of SOALayers, sits between service providers and service consumers to gather message data and enforce policy on every transaction to provide unprecedented visibility and control. SOADirector is an enterprise-class SOA management and governance product that enables users to secure, govern and manage web services and business processes. It is positioned between the service consumer and service provider, and gathers message data and enforces policy on every transaction to provide unprecedented visibility and control. It provides runtime governance, policy management, and business process visibility and traceability.

SOAStore, another key component of SOALayers, brings a JAXR compliant registry/repository management solution to support the entire SOA lifecycle from design, development through pilot and production, enabling better control of the SOA infrastructure. It allows visual creation of a flexible hierarchy of organizations, departments and users and associated roles and groups and defines access control policies. SOAStore also supports approval workflows for artifacts

While integrating services, SOALayers delivers mediation and enterprise capabilities like load balancing, throttling, failover, security, content based routing, transformation, identify propagation, reliable messaging and transactions.

Almost all relevant standards are supported such as JBI, BPEL 1.1 & 2.0, SCA, SDO, XForms, JAXR, XSLT, XPath, XQuery, WS-Security, SAML and other WS-* standards such as WS-RM, WS-Addressing, WS-Policy leading to interoperability with other products and platforms.

SOAMatrix Studio provides Eclipse based intuitive designer for business process composition and integration. The native business process execution language (BPEL) engine helps in building composite applications as well as human workflows. Business process automation and integration is facilitated through interfaces at various tiers such as User Interface, Business Logic and data.

SOAMatrix process manager enables monitoring, management and administration of processes and process instances using easy-to-use web console. Business Rules Engine captures business policies and enables flexibility and agility in adopting policy changes.

SOAMatrix Studio extends to human workflow automation to deal with process requirements such as review, approval, exception handling, or error notification. Human workflow automation is performed using web console, email, SMS or IVRS. It provides visibility and facilitates audit of actions taken through real time notification.

It is a standards-based platform supporting BPEL 1.1 & 2.0, SCA, SDO, XQuery, XSLT and XForms standards, to name a few.

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 valu...
This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
It has never been a better time to be a developer! Thanks to cloud computing, deploying our applications is much easier than it used to be. How we deploy our apps continues to evolve thanks to cloud hosting, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and now Function-as-a-Service. FaaS is the concept of serverless computing via serverless architectures. Software developers can leverage this to deploy an individual "function", action, or piece of business logic. They are expected to start within milliseconds...

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...
Cloud promises the agility required by today’s digital businesses. As organizations adopt cloud based infrastructures and services, their IT resources become increasingly dynamic and hybrid in nature. Managing these require modern IT operations and tools. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Raj Sundaram, Senior Principal Product Manager at CA Technologies, will discuss how to modernize your IT operations in order to proactively manage your hybrid cloud and IT environments. He will be sharing bes...
We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual ...

The first step to solving a problem is recognizing that it actually exists. And whether you've realized it or not, cloud services are a problem for your IT department. Even if you feel like you have a solid grasp of cloud technology and the nuances of making a cloud purchase, business leaders don't share the same confidence. Nearly 80% feel that IT lacks the skills necessary to help with cloud purchases-and they're looking to cloud brokers for help instead. It's time to admit we have a cloud s...
According to a recent Gartner study, by 2020, it will be unlikelythat any enterprise will have a “no cloud” policy, and hybrid will be the most common use of the cloud. While the benefits of leveraging public cloud infrastructures are well understood, the desire to keep critical workloads and data on-premise in the private data center still remains. For enterprises, the hybrid cloud provides a best of both worlds solution. However, the leading factor that determines the preference to the hybrid ...
