Los Angeles — SOA Software, a Los Angeles-based integrated SOA governance vendor, and Compuware Corp., a Detroit-based independent software and services companies are partnering to accelerate the adoption of mainframe service-oriented architecture (SOA). This partnership will help mainframe users adopt SOA quickly and safely by leveraging the technology and expertise of two leaders in this field, SOA says.

This joint solution leverages Compuware's centers of technology and best practices to assist clients in realizing the benefits of modernizing their investments in legacy architecture. Using SOA Software's SOLA integration solution, Compuware assists clients by discovering, building, optimizing, testing and deploying enterprise mainframe applications as Web services.

“SOA Software is pleased to partner with Compuware, a leader in mainframe technology and integration services,” says Roberto Medrano, EVP of SOA Software. “The mainframe forms a critical piece of most large companies' technology infrastructure, and we are excited about the opportunity this partnership provides to help companies leverage their mainframe systems as part of modern applications.”

SOA Software's SOLA mainframe SOA solution is designed to solve the problem of making mainframe applications part of a SOA in a cost-effective manner. SOLA provides customers with a process to expose mainframe applications as Web services, and enables mainframe applications to consume Web services.

"Over the last 35 years, Compuware has focused on delivering measurable business value to 90% of the Fortune and Global Fortune 100 companies,” says VP of professional services, Pat Greenwood. “We are excited about bringing the SOA organization's products as an accelerator within Compuware's SOA strategy. Our clients look to us to leverage their existing environment for enterprisewide application sharing, and the SOLA product aligns within our go-to-market strategy in that it enables us to expose our client's assets in an accelerated delivery model. This partnership fits within Compuware's strategic approach of developing end-to-end enterprise solutions which leverage our clients' investments in their mainframe environments."
