Report: IBM Named Strong Performer in North American Service Oriented Architecture Integration

ARMONK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/19/06 -- A new, independent research report named IBM (NYSE: IBM) as a strong performer in service oriented architecture (SOA). The Forrester Wave(TM): North American SOA Integration, Q3 2006, September 2006 examined IBM Global Services' current SOA offerings, SOA strategy and market presence.

An SOA is a way of reusing a company's existing technology to more closely align it with business goals, helping to result in greater efficiencies, cost savings and productivity.

Forrester found that "Given its size and reach, IBM is the leader in development of SOA intellectual property. Highlighted by its recent acquisition of Webify coupled with firmwide SOA investment of $1 billion, IBM will leverage cutting-edge R&D, leading to quicker SOA projects and reusable SOA assets for its clients. IBM feels that SOA will help align to CEOs' focus on globalization, business innovation and flexibility."

"IBM's recognition as a strong performer in Service Oriented Architectures is a direct result of our SOA strategy that builds upon strengths in business consulting, IT services and software to develop high-value, repeatable tools that help companies optimize and transform their businesses," said Michael Liebow, vice president, SOA and Web Services, IBM Global Services. "This strategy is already responsible for helping thousands of customers use SOA to meet business goals."

IBM recently announced a series of initiatives to extend its position as a strong performer. In addition to acquiring Webify, IBM also recently announced an intent to acquire security provider Internet Security Systems, and asset and service management technology developer MRO Software. In addition, IBM has now enrolled more than 2,500 partners in its SOA partner initiative and recently IBM revealed that more than 3,000 IBM and business partner software assets are available in the IBM SOA Business Catalog. This resource allows customers to search for pre-engineered SOA technology components that solve specific business problems. More than 90,000 IBM consultants around the world are currently being trained on SOA and IBM has a network of SOA design and development centers around the world.

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...

As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
