UC4 Software Unveils Agent to Automate SOA and Cloud Computing

New UC4 Agent for Web Services Bridges Legacy Applications With Web Services; Helps Enable End-to-End Automation Into the Cloud

BELLEVUE, WA and VIENNA, AUSTRIA--(Marketwire - January 27, 2010) - UC4 Software, a leading provider of Intelligent Service Automation and IT process optimization solutions, today announced the UC4 Agent for Web Services. The new agent initiates and manages Web service-enabled jobs as part of background processing and enables customers to extend the benefits of automation into SOA and cloud environments.

"UC4 is architecting for the future, helping customers integrate and automate applications on the ground and in the clouds," said Vincent Stueger, Chief Technology Officer, UC4 Software. "With UC4 V8 and our new Agent for Web Services, customers can bridge traditional batch scheduling jobs with Web services or cloud-based applications and manage them all from one automation platform."

The UC4 Agent for Web Services allows customers to bring the cost savings benefits of automation to SOA and the cloud, reduce risks in modernization projects, and extend automation to Web service-enabled applications and tools. With an intuitive user interface for rapid execution, the UC4 Agent for Web Services supports WSDL and SOAP, and virtually eliminates the need for manual coding and command lines.

"Automation is crucial for businesses using SOA or moving applications into the cloud. CIOs are keen to capitalize on the elasticity and the pay-per-use model cloud computing offers, yet their key priority remains with the business critical processes in their legacy environments," said Milind Govekar, Research Vice President, Gartner. "The ability of the technology platform to manage a hybrid environment consisting of legacy and cloud applications with a single automation platform will be needed for clearing the way for greater adoption of cloud-based models."
