ROI Calculator Puts a Dollar Value on SOA

TAMPA, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 7, 2005 -- Company executives can now estimate a Return on Investment (ROI) before they move to a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Skyway Software, the award winning SOA solution for developing and delivering custom applications and services, announces the launching of an online calculator for determining ROI when companies are considering the implementation of the Skyway SOA Platform.

Now, C-level executives interested in their bottom-line scenario can quickly compute the revenue gains and cost reductions the company can expect by moving application development and maintenance from traditional environments to the Skyway SOA Platform. The calculator returns Total Project Savings, a Development Cost Comparison and a Run Cost Comparison for the project described.

Executives can also request details behind the customized ROI estimate, including the expected days, effort and resource mix needed for each development phase (e.g., Analysis, Conceptual Design, Detailed Design, Build & Test, Assembly Test, Integration Test, and Performance Test) of the project. After estimating an ROI, executives can download, a free fully functioning evaluation copy of Skyway Builder to experience first hand how quickly and simply Skyway Software creates quality service-oriented applications.

Skyway Software's VP of Product Management , David Precopio, states, "At Skyway we really listen to customer comments and we noticed a repetitive request to see a quick and detailed analysis of the implementation of the Skyway SOA Platform. Skyway Software's ROI Calculator for SOA was developed from these comments. It is a welcomed addition to the many resources the Skyway website offers." Skyway's website currently contains a terminology section, case studies, whitepapers, a customer testimonial video, demos, a live chat option and much more -- all designed to help executives determine the immediate value Skyway's SOA Platform can bring to their businesses.
