COMPANY PRESS RELEASE: An OEM agreement designed to build a complete set of tools to automate business processes throughout the value chain has been announced by Staffware, leaders in business process management, and Actional Corporation, a leading application integration developer.
Actional’s Control Broker adapter technology has been integrated as an OEM component in the recently launched Staffware Process SuiteTM. The joint solution is designed to lower the cost of integration, provide fast ROI for Staffware customers, and integrate with a wide range of enterprise and legacy applications.
Jon Pyke, Chief Technology Officer, Staffware stated: Staffware Process Suite(TM) includes the Staffware Process Integrator which has been designed to provide extensive EAI capabilities as part of an overall Business Process Management solution. The Actional component offers a wide array of adapters and interfaces to commercially available products such as SAP and Siebel as well as facilitating technology bridging between various standards including Corba to COM.
By including Actional in the Staffware Process SuiteTM, we enable our customers to rapidly leverage EAI functionality and link legacy systems in real time across the enterprise and beyond – throughout the value chain – without the need for traditional, proprietary EAI and middleware technology, he continued.
The Staffware Process Suite(TM) provides sophisticated business process management technology to help manage process flows across applications. Embedded within the Staffware process, Actional performs single step transformation from Staffware to enterprise applications, greatly enhancing deployment and processing speed.
Paul Brennan, Actional’s VP Europe said: Actional Control Broker is a unique ‘any-to-many’ architecture that directly connects customer facing eBusiness systems to back end ERP and legacy environments. It allows companies to rapidly and effectively realize their eBusiness strategies by directly integrating disparate applications across the enterprise and extend those applications over the Internet.
Under the terms of the agreement we have reached with Staffware, we are firmly convinced that, in partnership, we can offer the best point to point application integration solution on the market today, one that directly connects user facing eBusiness systems to back-end ERP and legacy environments, Brennan continued.
