SAN JOSE, Calif., April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — BEA Systems, a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced the completion of the next phase of the BEA AquaLogic(R) family of products, fulfilling the BEA AquaLogic vision by delivering the most comprehensive, integrated set of products designed to provide control, agility, flexibility and simplicity for meeting today's business demands. The completion of the next phase of the BEA AquaLogic family brings to market a new era of BEA AquaLogic products that have evolved to address dynamic business applications.
Dynamic business applications are a radical departure from the constraints inherent in traditional monolithic applications. Traditional applications are built for a specific purpose, inflexible due to embedding of all elements required of the application and generally difficult to change. Dynamic business applications are made up of an assembly of abstracted and distributed components that are designed to make them more flexible to change and more adaptable to the business. Core to accomplishing the dynamic business application is the need for a solid SOA, BPM, and Web 2.0 infrastructure.
BEA AquaLogic can simplify business with a comprehensive set of products aligning SOA, BPM and Web 2.0, managing dynamic business applications throughout the entire lifecycle. It can help to enable an organization to break up traditional applications into fine-grained, reusable components to support the creation of dynamic business applications that leverage the synergies of a harmonized SOA, BPM and Web 2.0 environment. These components can reduce the risk associated with allowing an organization to more easily adapt to new business requirements by enabling simple changes to individual components.

"Jewelry Television is one of the world's largest jewelry retailers. Since 1997, we've grown from a $5 million company into a nearly $500 million enterprise," said Chris Meystrik, vice president of software engineering at Jewelry Television. "We recognized that a new infrastructure was needed to support a large organization and to help ensure our competitiveness in the rapidly evolving world of TV- and Internet-based retail. As a result, Jewelry TV has adopted a service-oriented architecture based on the BEA AquaLogic platform, which serves as our overarching technology strategy to help move data securely and efficiently across the entire company and to improve the scalability required to support a customer base that is growing by 35,000 people per month. The combination of BEA AquaLogic technology and our SOA approach helps give us the adaptability and rapid change management needed to succeed."
The completion of the next phase of BEA AquaLogic further advances the company's vision by also signifying the completion of the first phase of BEA WorkSpace 360(TM). As part of the BEA WorkSpace 360 environment, BEA AquaLogic is designed to enable IT to empower the business to make change without fear of losing control, to enable the swift delivery of business applications and to roll out changes with minimal complexity and cost. This technology is designed to transform elements of the business from siloed, replicated processes so that support and responsibility can be distributed through the empowerment of lifecycle participants while helping to increase efficiency into reusable, shared components that cost less to maintain. With comprehensive end-to-end governance built in, BEA AquaLogic, with BEA WorkSpace 360, can reduce the risk associated with the creation and maintenance of dynamic business applications and can provide more holistic visibility and control over the business and IT components.
"Today's business environment is one of extreme competition with the advantage going to those that can adapt their businesses at the pace at which business requirements change," said Mark Carges, executive vice president of products, BEA Systems. "There is a movement in today's business environment in which the business and IT are seen as partners for success. To accomplish this, IT must build flexibility into the architecture that not only allows IT to accommodate new business requirements faster, but also allows the business to adapt to change without going through a rigorous IT process. This new marriage between business and IT results in a new style of business applications: dynamic business applications."
