Westbrook Technologies Publishes SOA -- Introduction to Service-Oriented Architectures for Electronic Document Management Systems White Paper

BRANFORD, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 19, 2005 -- Paul Lord, CEO and President of Westbrook Technologies, will explore the intricacies of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and the impact that Service Oriented Business Applications (SOBAs) will have on electronic document management at the 50th ARMA meeting in Chicago, this Tuesday, September 20th.

In addition to his presentation, Lord will announce the release of the newly published Westbrook Technologies white paper by noted author Bud-Porter Roth of Porter Roth Associates.

The paper; SOA -- Introduction to Service-Oriented Architectures for Electronic Document Management Systems, focuses on an introduction to the key concepts and principles of SOA, and explores interoperability and the need to architect applications with interoperability as the primary driver. Today's business environment is all about interoperability, connectivity, and sharing work processes across work groups, departments, and enterprise boundaries. Web services provides corporate business users and IT departments a tool set that encourages an entrepreneurial spirit allowing new applications, business models, and products to be built, tested and deployed quickly.

The paper presents in great detail just how this new technology will take hold of the traditional document management space and revolutionize it!

A recent survey by The Yankee Group announced that 2006 will be a benchmark year for the adoption and deployment of service-oriented architecture (SOA).

Westbrook Technologies Fortis SOA is an electronic document management system that is being built from the ground up using SOA, Web services, SOAP and Messaging and is interoperable by design. Fortis SOA is built to provide its functionality as services that are available to any other Service-Oriented Business Application (SOBA) on a cross-platform federated security environment.
