SOA Software Demonstrates Performance and Reliability in SAP® Co-Innovation Lab

Company Automates Operational and Development Governance Processes in Support of SAP Services a Cornerstone of Enterprise SOA Programs

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - SOA Software, the leading Integrated SOA Governance vendor, announced today that it is working in the SAP® Co-Innovation Lab, where it collaborates side-by-side with SAP to provide comprehensive Integrated SOA Governance Automation solutions for customers. SOA Software has demonstrated the exceptional performance and reliability of its SOA Governance solutions for use with SAP solutions to Fortune 1000 customers, and continues to work with the SAP Co-Innovation Lab team and customers to define and showcase advanced SOA Governance Automation use cases. Today's announcement was made at SAP TechEd 2008 Las Vegas, where SOA Software is exhibiting in booth 83.

The SAP Co-Innovation Lab is a hands-on working environment for SAP, its customers and partners to build and execute joint projects, enabling them to co-innovate new business applications and technology solutions to address specific customer needs. SOA Software is working closely with SAP at the lab to demonstrate how its products provide Integrated SOA Governance Automation capabilities in support of enterprise service-oriented architecture (enterprise SOA) when used with the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform. This allows customers to more confidently use SAP NetWeaver and SAP enterprise services as part of a heterogeneous enterprise SOA environment, sharing services with other commercial SOA platforms from vendors including IBM, Microsoft, BEA, Oracle, RedHat and other open source providers.

"We've been pleased to work with SOA Software in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab," said Scott Campbell, vice president of the Co-Innovation Labs Network at SAP. "Our customers value the opportunity to work side-by-side with SAP and SOA Software in the lab to gain strategic insights for adopting, managing and governing enterprise services -- it's the power of our ecosystem at work."

Customers benefit in the following ways from the use of SOA Software's Integrated SOA Governance Automation solution with SAP NetWeaver in an enterprise SOA environment:

--  More easily identify, design and build their own services using SAP
    NetWeaver that are relevant and consumable to non-SAP applications, such as
    the applications they design, build and deploy using technologies from
    other vendors such as Microsoft and IBM
--  Make services they expose from applications running on SAP NetWeaver
    visible to and compliant with enterprise policies that are defined,
    enforced and audited across other platforms. This helps the services they
    design and build using other platforms from other vendors and open source
    environments visible to and compliant with enterprise policies that are
    defined, enforced and audited across SAP NetWeaver
--  Further promote and formalize consistent alignment between demand from
    service consumers and the supply of services through Consumer Contract

SOA Software's platform-independent, Integrated SOA Governance Automation solution promotes the use of best practices throughout an enterprise SOA environment regardless of where services and consumers are designed, built, deployed and operated. Policy Manager, Repository Manager and Service Manager integrate with development and run-time products from most commercial platforms from vendors including SAP, Microsoft, IBM and BEA, as well as RedHat and other open source providers.

"The Co-Innovation Lab provides us with the opportunity to demonstrate and validate our governance integration with SAP solutions to better meet the needs of customers," said Frank Martinez, executive vice president at SOA Software. "Customers like Ingram Micro leverage our products so they can more confidently use SAP NetWeaver and SAP enterprise services included as a part of a heterogeneous enterprise SOA environment."
