Skyway Software Announces Partnership With BEA in SOA Governance and Service Delivery

Skyway Software to Leverage BEA Metadata Interoperability Framework for Integration

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - BEAWorld 2007 -- Skyway Software, the experts in simplifying software delivery through model-based, collaborative tools and iterative processes, announces today a partnership with BEA Systems, Inc., a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software. As part of the partnership, Skyway Software will integrate its products with BEA AquaLogic® Registry Repository. This partnership combines an integrated development and deployment platform with SOA lifecycle governance to help enterprises reduce architecture-build costs and improve business agility.

The Skyway Software and BEA partnership promises simpler software delivery for a wide variety of customers as it can help enable enterprises to use existing technology to create new SOA-based programs, particularly useful in fast-paced, customer-driven market sectors like retail and finance.

Skyway Software is leveraging the BEA Metadata Interoperability Framework to plug into BEA AquaLogic Registry Repository, a key component of the BEA WorkSpace 360 vision. Through the ease of this out-of-the-box integration enabled by BEA Metadata Interoperability Framework, BEA AquaLogic Registry Repository can automatically collect and maintain services that are modeled and created in Skyway Visual Workspace. Once in the repository, the services, service assemblies and related assets, are governed and made available for broader reuse.

"Skyway Software's modeling tool together with BEA AquaLogic Registry Repository can help enable users to generate, govern and reuse services for their SOA applications," said Paul Patrick, vice president and chief architect of BEA Systems. "With this announcement, BEA continues its SOA leadership role by providing customers with additional capabilities for its proven, market-leading registry repository."

The combination of BEA AquaLogic Registry Repository and Skyway Visual Workspace™ supports SOA lifecycle governance, architecture alignment, optimized software reuse and can provide measurable value to all sizes of enterprises. Skyway Visual Workspace™ enables software developers to work alongside business end-users to visually prototype business requirements and then develop and deploy software directly from the model. BEA AquaLogic Registry Repository is designed to enable firms to gain visibility, traceability and control of their SOA through effective governance.

"Combining our collaborative tools and processes with BEA governance technologies can help enable our joint customers to drive real business innovation and outstanding results," said Sean Walsh, president and CEO of Skyway Software.

In addition to the integration, Skyway will resell BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Repository in support of SOA governance and service delivery.
