SOA Software Certifies Neuron as a Governed Service Platform

Neudesic's Neuron ESB SOA Platform Certified

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - SOA Software, a leading Integrated SOA Governance Automation vendor, today announced that it has certified the Neuron ESB from Neudesic as a Governed Service Platform.

Certified Governed Service Platform status means that customers can be confident that their platforms won't compromise the fidelity of the governance systems and structures defined in an enterprise SOA program. The certification process ensures that Governed Service Platforms can implement and enforce governance policies proving reporting data to enable a closed-loop audit process.

"Governance Initiatives are rapidly gaining momentum amongst platform vendors, Governance solution providers, and end-user customers," said Frank Martinez, Executive Vice President of SOA Software. "The addition of Neuron-ESB, as a Microsoft .NET and WCF based ESB to the list of Governed Service Platforms highlights the importance of this certification for platform vendors."

Neudesic customers add SOA Software's Integrated SOA Governance Automation solution to their Microsoft .NET and WCF based Neuron ESB to achieve the following benefits:

--  Compatibility: Ensure that services they identify, design and build
    using their Neuron ESB are relevant and consumable to applications they
    design, build and deploy using other technologies like IBM, Microsoft or
    Oracle, or buy from other vendors like SAP.
    
--  Visibility: Make services they expose from applications running on the
    Neuron ESB 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 Microsoft and open source environments
    visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and
    audited across by their Neuron applications.
    
--  Demand Management: Promote and ensure consistent alignment between
    demand from service consumers and the supply of services through Consumer
    Contract Provisioning. Contracts specify the formal relationship between a
    consumer, or group of consumers, and a provider, or group of providers.
    They specify access rights and times, SLAs and capacity, and can be used to
    specify policy requirements.
    

The certification of Neuron shows the rapid growth of SOA Governance as a leading driver of SOA adoption. The Governed Service Platform status ensures that Neuron can be consistently governed along with other enterprise service platforms.

"Neuron-ESB 2.0 represents a significant evolution for the Microsoft Platform while addressing the Enterprise Service Bus needs of every customer running Microsoft Windows. Our technology allows businesses to effectively leverage their Microsoft investments to deliver real-time solutions," stated Marty Wasznicky, Vice President of Product Development. "Our product provides a new level of flexibility and ease of use that will help companies increase their productivity while reducing their development and operational costs. Moreover we've formed a strategic partnership with SOA Software and achieved certification as a Governed Service Platform. Our customers can be confident that Neuron-ESB will enhance the fidelity of their Governance initiatives."
