Oracle(R) Fusion Middleware Maintains a Leading Role in Integration-Centric Business Process Management According to Independent Research Firm


REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., 09-JAN-2007 Oracle today announced it was cited as a “Leader” in “The Forrester Wave(tm): Integration-Centric Business Process Management Suites (IC-BPMS), Q4 2006.”i

Oracle was named a leader based on key components of Oracle(r) Fusion Middleware, including the Oracle SOA Suite’s performance across 85 criteria spanning strategy and market presence, as well as product features enabling Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Business Process Management (BPM). According to the vendor summary cited in the report, “Oracle has made significant progress since Forrester last reviewed its integration solution in July 2005. Oracle SOA Suite contains several new enhancements in process modeling, business activity monitoring, human workflow and enhanced business rules support. Oracle has also broadened the reach of its integration platform by enabling Oracle SOA Suite to run on top of other J2EE platforms.”

As SOA implementations mature from the early stages of service-enabling code to a more advanced stage that orchestrates Web services into complete and automated business processes, organizations are increasingly seeking software like Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Business Process Analysis Suite, key components of Oracle Fusion Middleware. Built on open standards with a hot-pluggable architecture, Oracle SOA Suite simplifies application and data integration in heterogeneous environments and helps customers model, manage, secure and deploy Web service-enabled business processes to maximize the business value and flexibility of their IT investments.

“Oracle Fusion Middleware provides customers with comprehensive, platform-agnostic SOA and BPM software that helps increase enterprise agility while reducing IT costs,” said Amlan Debnath, vice president, Server Technologies, Oracle. “By providing a robust SOA infrastructure, Oracle Fusion Middleware enables customers to evolve to next-generation architectures with their existing IT investments.”
