WebLayers Announces Integration of Flagship Governance Software With HP SOA Systinet 3.10

Thomson Reuters Among First to Bank on New Comprehensive Governance Platform

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - June 17, 2009) - WebLayers, Inc. today announced that the company's automated governance platform, WebLayers Center, fully integrates and supports HP SOA Systinet 3.10 governance software. Thomson Reuters, one of the world's most trusted financial news industry organizations, is among the first customers to realize cost savings through the combined WebLayers Center and HP SOA Systinet 3.10 governance platform.

Demonstrated this week at the HP Software Universe conference, the combination of WebLayers Center and HP SOA Systinet 3.10 will enable enterprise customers, specifically software architects and developers, to accelerate the business value from investments in service oriented architectures (SOA).

"Like many organizations today, we were immersed in integrating companies and technologies due to a merger, needed greater transparency for our business processes, and did not have the luxury of hiring additional staff," said Vladimir Mitevski, vice president, product management core services, Thomson Reuters. "To address these challenges, we are accelerating our SOA efforts and rely on the powerful combination of WebLayers Center and HP SOA Systinet for the most comprehensive governance offering that has already delivered ROI."

Governance helped Thomson Reuters realize an impressive ROI in its first year because it creates an environment that proactively addresses issues and ensures that software is being developed in accordance with business and IT policies and best practices.

"The combination of WebLayers Center with HP SOA Systinet 3.10 makes for a compelling and comprehensive governance platform that will help companies achieve their SOA goals while significantly reducing the costs associated with integration and development," said John Favazza, vice president of engineering, WebLayers.

Many organizations today have invested significant IT resources into developing software -- both onsite and offshore -- to build an SOA that integrates existing applications with newer technologies. The three primary goals of these efforts are to create a more agile infrastructure, provide greater visibility to more effectively mitigate business risks, and to maximize existing resources.

"Customers can reduce costs by instituting governance at design time as opposed to later in the service development life cycle when change is more expensive," said Tim Hall, director of SOA Center products, Hewlett Packard. "The combination of WebLayers Center with HP SOA Systinet 3.10 gives customers access to more than 2,000 policies, greater flexibility in managing those policies, and the ability to assess the quality of artifacts which will lead to greater re-use."

WebLayers Center for HP SOA Systinet 3.10 will be available later this summer. Pricing is contingent upon licensing and other variables specific to an enterprise's IT requirements.
