SUNNYVALE, Calif. and LOS ANGELES, May 10 /PRNewswire/ — AZORA Technologies and SOA Software today announced a partnership to provide offerings that facilitate the adoption of SOA (service-oriented architecture). AZORA, a provider of innovative SOA architecture and design services, will team with SOA Software, the leading provider of comprehensive SOA and Web services management, security, mediation and run-time governance solutions, to create an education and mentoring program that helps companies to jumpstart their adoption of SOA.
SOA organizes enterprise software systems in a way that supports the business and promotes effective re-use, while defending against technology obsolescence. Achieving this is dependent on two critical success factors: proper architectural design, and effective governance of that design. Architecture defines the way technology supports the business' goals. Governance ensures technology is used in its intended fashion.
AZORA's innovative approach to architecture assures effective, platform- independent SOA design. SOA Software's industry-leading Infrastructure Suite provides comprehensive, platform-independent governance, policy, security, and management.
"By combining SOA Software's solutions with AZORA's architectural education and consulting offerings, we can provide our customers with a unique ability to achieve the promises of SOA no matter what technology platform they choose," said Julio P. Roque, AZORA CEO.
"By partnering with AZORA, we are able to more directly address the needs of companies who are just stepping into SOA and need to address architecture questions as they consider governance issues," said Roberto Medrano, SOA Software's Executive Vice President.
AZORA Technologies is a leading provider of Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) product and service solutions. Its mission is to apply actionable knowledge to achieve the promise of SOA — providing organizations with the flexibility and agility they need to free their business from the constraints of their IT. To achieve this, the company has developed an innovative system that combines an experience-based services-oriented architecture (SOA) reference model with model-driven architecture (MDA) principles to simplify the design and implementation of enterprise solutions. It uses this system — embodied in its education, services, and product offerings — to ensure it can effectively apply SOA to meet client business goals.
