SAN JOSE, Calif. and LONDON .– BEA Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: BEAS), a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced that Meteor Mobile Communications has standardized on BEA technology to capitalize on convergence opportunities in the Irish cellular market. One of Ireland’s leading mobile communications providers is deploying BEA AquaLogic® products to help rapidly integrate, deploy, and manage process-driven services. This deployment can deliver the cost-effective business agility needed to launch compelling new personalized services, grow market share and sustain long-term relationships with Meteor’s 849,000-strong customer base.
“In a market categorized by innovation, rapid change and intense competition, BEA AquaLogic can help enable Meteor to bridge the technology gaps between people, processes, applications and data,” says Tony Stewart-Lord, IT Director, Meteor Mobile Communications. “This can allow Meteor to stay ahead of competitors and deliver increasing value while responding to the challenges of mobile convergence, changing market dynamics and regulatory pressures.”
Established in 2001, having been awarded Ireland’sthird mobile licence, Meteor is one of Ireland’s leading mobile communications providers, with more than a 17 percent share of the Irish cellular market. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of eircom group plc.
Meteor originally deployed costly point-to-point service integrations to connect its primary systems—including billing, customer care, Web self-service and retail point-of-sale. BEA was chosen based on the company’s position in the global telco infrastructure market, the depth of the enterprise integration solutions for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) environments and the proven maturity of the BEA AquaLogic product suite.
Meteor is deploying BEA AquaLogic Integrator and BEA AquaLogic Service Registry™—components of the world-class BEA AquaLogic product family—to create an adaptive environment which offers a near-360 degree view of its customers. The unified customer, product and market understanding is designed to enable Meteor to launch new converged mobile communications services, while simultaneously delivering a consistently rewarding customer experience across customers’ preferred channel of communication.
BEA AquaLogic Integrator can deliver a comprehensive enterprise integration solution for Meteor’s SOA environment. Web services are being natively built, extended, and integrated at the enterprise-class level. Standard automated processes—from customer acquisition through to ongoing customer care—can be rapidly designed, deployed, connected and managed. BEA AquaLogic Integrator can also enable Meteor to implement changes to service integration relationships and policies dynamically, through configuration rather than code.
BEA AquaLogic Service Registry provides Meteor with standards-based visibility into deployed services approved for production and their associated runtime policies. This services index for SOA can help enable Meteor to better manage governance via enhanced control of their environment through strong runtime policy enforcement.
Meteor is working closely with BEA Professional Services to develop and execute its Service-Oriented Architecture. Following a rigorous initial SOA Assessment Service, BEA Professional Services are providing proof-of-concept, training and education services.
“BEA Professional Services’ blend of SOA skills, experience and professionalism is helping Meteor to shrink the time to value for our innovative, service-oriented infrastructure,” says Stewart-Lord.
