Runtime SOA Governance Leader Brings End-to-End Visibility and Control to Heterogeneous Enterprise SOA Systems

Oakland, CA, July 2008 -- AmberPoint announced today that it has joined the SAP® Co-Innovation Lab, where it will work with SAP to provide best practices for integrating its industry-leading service-oriented architecture (SOA) runtime governance solutions with SAP enterprise services. AmberPoint intends to work with the SAP Co-Innovation Lab team to demonstrate and extend its SOA runtime governance capabilities by highlighting new use cases and scenarios, as well as identifying and sharing best practices showing how AmberPoint’s solutions complement SAP solutions.

The SAP Co-Innovation Lab is a hands-on working environment for SAP, its customers and partners to build and execute joint projects, enabling them to co-innovate new solutions to address specific customers’ needs. Using AmberPoint products, enterprises implementing services-based applications built on the SAP NetWeaver® platform can realize the full potential of their flexible, standards-based systems. They can better understand system behavior, manage transactions end-to-end, and implement policies that automate performance management, remedy exceptional conditions and uphold security.

“AmberPoint has distinguished itself through the breadth of its SOA governance capabilities, its market traction and its commitment to successful partnerships,” said Andreas Weiskam, partner at SAP Ventures. “The SAP Co-Innovation Lab will showcase AmberPoint’s innovative product development in support of SAP NetWeaver and other platforms, underscoring the significant benefits AmberPoint solutions bring to our mutual customers.”

AmberPoint’s participation in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab builds on a close relationship with SAP AG that has steadily grown for years.
