WebLayers Expands Platform for SOA and Application Lifecycle Governance

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - WebLayers today announced the introduction of its expanded platform for SOA and application lifecycle governance. The WebLayers governance platform provides centralized policy management, automated policy based controls and an aggregated view of policy compliance for in-house or outsourced software development initiatives. These governance capabilities fully integrate with leading application lifecycle management packages and allow for greater compliance visibility and detailed analysis through WebLayers' dashboards and reports.

The platform improves upon WebLayers' well-established service-oriented architecture and mainframe application governance solutions by also delivering design-time governance for Java and .NET application development, mobile application development, application development in the Cloud, and enforcement of industry standards. WebLayers' approach enables governance initiatives regardless of an organization's technological topography, its use of open source or proprietary technology, or whether code is developed onsite or offshore.

As a central point for design-time governance, the WebLayers platform ensures that policy violations in the software development life cycle (SDLC) are proactively identified and addressed before they have a negative business impact. It also provides transparent compliance metrics across organizations so that all parties involved know where projects or applications stand in relation to organizational goals and service level agreements. The WebLayers governance dashboards and reports give architects and business managers immediate and actionable information on projects, resources and artifacts across the organization.

"The WebLayers Governance Platform truly brings about real change in the way enterprise organizations are managing complex governance initiatives," says Jeff Papows, President and CEO of WebLayers. "Our customers want a single aggregated view for governance that gives them actionable intelligence on the impact policy violations could have on their business from the onset of the software development process."

WebLayers develops software and provides services to Fortune 2000 companies that are striving to decrease the amount and magnitude of costly software errors. WebLayers technology enables a software architect or software developer to centralize policy management and distribute policy enforcement to support automated governance at every point in the infrastructure and across all platforms throughout the SDLC. Changes only need to be made once and are executed throughout the entire system. This delivers consistent policy management for all software development efforts. WebLayers governance policies are managed throughout the SDLC and distributed from a central location while being applied appropriately in the right context.
