BEA Helps NASA Seek Water, Perhaps Life, on Mars
(San Jose, CA) - The BEA WebLogic Enterprise Platform is delivering information to NASA scientists around the world about whether water, and perhaps life, once existed on Mars. Scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and other NASA facilities and universities, are actively studying data beamed by the two Mars Exploration rovers from the planet's surface. This data travels over NASA's Deep Space Network, an international network of antennae located in Australia, Spain, and the U.S., is processed by ground-based software and then stored on file servers at JPL. The processed data is available to scientists and researchers over the Internet through a middleware layer powered by BEA WebLogic Server. It also provides event and personnel schedules and the current time in various Earth and Mars time zones, while the message service enables mission managers to broadcast messages. www.bea.com, www.nasa.gov

New Study Finds Advantages for Integrated Platform Suite
(San Jose, CA) - BEA Systems, has announced the findings of a study that demonstrates potential for enterprise-wide cost savings by leveraging an integrated application platform suite (APS). The study, based on a detailed analysis of projects and data from systems integrators and Fortune 500 enterprises, highlights significant time-to-market and cost advantages - 22% faster, 25% less cost and assets - for IT initiatives implemented on an integrated platform when compared to projects implemented on a non-integrated platform.

This study compares the time-to-market and skills required for applications development, integration, deployment, and maintenance on an integrated versus non-integrated platform. It found that an integrated platform leads to savings during every phase of the application life cycle, from design to post-deployment operations.
