Independent Research Firm Cites BEA Systems as a Leader In Information-As-A-Service Report

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BEA Systems, a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced it was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its January 23, 2008 report, The Forrester Wave: Information-As-A-Service (IaaS), Q1 2008. In this evaluation, BEA is cited as a Leader in all four categories, Complete IaaS Implementation, A Single Version Of The Truth, High-Performance Applications, and Enterprise Search And Reporting. BEA's position as a leader in the information-as-a-service space demonstrates the company's long-standing commitment to making diverse information easier to consume and reflects the company's service-oriented architecture (SOA) strategy, as well as BEA's Genesis vision for next-generation Dynamic Business Applications.

In this report Forrester investigates the information services offerings of 10 vendors including BEA. Forrester identifies four different use case scenarios for customer requirements: complete IaaS implementation; a single version of the truth; high-performance applications; and enterprise search and reporting. The report states, "BEA Systems is a Leader across all four use cases, riding the strength of the extensive features built into its AquaLogic Data Services Platform and its strong strategy and market presence."

The Forrester report concludes that of the 10 vendors it investigated, BEA was one of only two vendors recognized as a Leader in all four use cases. BEA AquaLogic(R) Data Services Platform is cited for "federating all types of data sources including connectivity to database management systems (DBMSes), files, applications, and other data sources. AquaLogic Data Services Platform (ALDSP) offers strong data security for IaaS and is well positioned to manage transactions across various data sources."

"We are proud to be recognized as a leader in the information-as-a-service market by Forrester," said Thanh Tran, senior vice president, AquaLogic Products, BEA Systems. "We've been a leader in this industry for quite some time, and this report further reflects our leadership position in this space. We will continue to set the bar for other information services solutions and execute upon our SOA strategy in an effort to improve our AquaLogic Platform."

BEA AquaLogic Data Services Platform is designed to help organizations rapidly provide consistent, integrated information to people, processes, and applications in the context and form required regardless of data location or format. This product transforms heterogeneous, siloed enterprise data into integrated, bidirectional, reusable information services which improve agility by increasing data reuse and reducing data inconsistency across the enterprise. BEA AquaLogic Data Services Platform is an integral part of single view of the customer, master data management, SOA integration, business intelligence, and search enablement projects.

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
