BEA, IBM, Microsoft, SAP, Sun Submit New Spec
BEA Systems, Inc., IBM Corp., Microsoft Corp., SAP AG, and Sun Microsystems, Inc., have submitted the latest version of a key Web services specification, WS-Addressing, to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as input into the standardization process.

WS-Addressing helps enable organizations to build reliable and interoperable Web services applications by defining a standard mechanism for identifying and exchanging Web services messages between multiple end points.

The joint submission of WS-Addressing represents a milestone in the collaboration among BEA, IBM, Microsoft, SAP, and Sun to further advance Web services technology. Backed by significant industry support, the submission of WS-Addressing is also part of a longer-term effort to provide a standards-based foundation for the development of secure, transacted, asynchronous, and reliable Web services.

WS-Addressing is designed to underlie other specifications, such as WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Federation and WS-AtomicTransaction, providing a consistent, interoperable, and standards-based mechanism for Web services addressing.

WebLogic Platform 8.1 Chosen as SOA Infrastructure of Choice
(San Jose, CA) - BEA Systems, Inc., closed several significant customer deals in the fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2004, as customers in major market sectors chose BEA WebLogic Platform 8.1 as a trusted foundation for both service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Linux-based enterprise applications.

BEA sees many large enterprise customers implementing SOA to help reduce IT overhead, facilitate smart workflows and timely information exchange, and accelerate the speed at which change could be implemented. In addition, many customers began deploying enterprise applications on the Linux operating system to take advantage of potentially lower hardware and software costs.

Among the most common solutions being built on BEA are employee self-service and customer self-service portals. These portals can provide personalized views into data and processes to make users as efficient as possible, comprehensive one-stop access to information and functionality, and the adaptability to facilitate rapid change to accommodate the changes in business.

BEA Sets New Price/Performance Record Validating the Best TCO
(San Jose, CA) - BEA Systems, Inc., has announced two new sets of results in SPECjAppServer2002, the industry-standard benchmark that evaluates the performance and cost of Java application servers. The BEA results set a new record for the lowest price-to-performance ratio in the MultipleNode category of the benchmark, reinforcing to customers that BEA can offer not only the highest performance, but can also provide the lowest cost. According to the benchmark, BEA outperformed IBM at less than half the cost, and surpassed Oracle performance at about one fifth the cost of their respective highest throughput results in this category. The results show that BEA WebLogic technology coupled with Unisys hardware can help to further enable customers to benefit from a more scalable enterprise application infrastructure at reduced costs.

BEA outperformed IBM at only 42% of the cost of IBM's configuration. Further, BEA required only four systems vs. IBM's nine systems of a comparable type and power to achieve higher performance.

Intersperse Announces Intersperse Manager 3.0
(Pasadena, CA) - Intersperse, Inc., a provider of management solutions for service-oriented enterprise applications, has released Intersperse Manager 3.0, an application management solution targeting the needs of next-generation J2EE and SOA-based applications. Intersperse Manager 3.0 provides Fortune 500 and other large organizations' performance advances and new levels of scalability that enable users to continually and effectively monitor the health of their enterprise IT environments.

TIM Peru Deploys "One Call" Solution on WebLogic Platform 8.1
(San Jose, CA) - TIM Peru, a subsidiary of Telecom Italia Mobile, has built and deployed its new One Call call-center solution on BEA WebLogic Platform 8.1. This marks a key milestone in TIM Peru's mission to build a service-oriented architecture (SOA) that can enable the company to reduce overhead, improve customer service, and increase revenue.

TIM Peru operates one of the most advanced wireless networks in Latin America, serving more than 800,000 customers. In the past, a TIM Peru representative had to access multiple applications in order to answer a single customer question, often resulting in customer service calls that lasted as long as 15 minutes. In some cases, representatives had to end the calls to track down the necessary information then redial the customer. The One Call solution is designed to utilize an SOA to integrate back-office systems and expose their data and functionality to representatives within a unified desktop.

When evaluating technology platforms upon which to build the One Call solution, TIM Peru considered enterprise offerings from many vendors. They selected WebLogic Platform 8.1 because of its support for open standards and because it can help deliver rapid time to value.
