Microsoft Customers can experience key partner products in action
Los Angeles, CA. – February 7, 2011 – SOA Software, a leading SOA and cloud services Governance provider, today announced that its products are installed for demonstrations and proof of concept engagements by the Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) locations in the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The MTC alliance program includes industry leaders in the hardware, software, services, and training sectors.
Microsoft has added SOA Software capabilities to the MTC Envisioning Center (EC) demonstration platform. The MTCs give SOA Software and Microsoft more opportunities to showcase their latest joint product solutions. SOA Software’s Policy Manager and Service Manager are fully integrated with Microsoft products including BizTalk, Azure, SQL, SharePoint, WCF, and IIS, along with other industry leading products, including SAP ERP. SOA Software’s products add governance, federation, metadata management and policy enforcement, implementation and monitoring.
The EC demonstration platform is available in MTC’s worldwide and experienced by 20,000 of Microsoft’s largest customers every year and it is delivered as part of a 1-day Strategy Briefing. The EC demo platform is based on a fictitious company needing to investigate sales performance and new product introduction; it understands current positioning, future state, and cost reduction; and it troubleshoots the order to cash process using SOA Software.
Through SOA Software’s Unified SOA Governance Automation, customers confidently use Microsoft products as part of a heterogeneous enterprise SOA environment. They are able to share services with other commercial SOA platforms like IBM WebSphere, SAP NetWeaver, and Oracle, as well as RedHat and other open source providers. more information about SOA Software product integrations with Microsoft, see: www.soa.com/microsoft
