Sparx Systems Joins SOA Consortium as Sponsor

Promotes the value of business-driven SOA

The SOA Consortium has announced that Sparx Systems has joined as a Sponsor. The SOA Consortium is an advocacy group of end users, service providers and technology vendors committed to helping the Global 1000, major government agencies, and mid-market businesses successfully adopt Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) by 2010. Sparx Systems joins founding sponsors BEA Systems, Inc., Cisco, IBM Corporation, and SAP AG.

SOA Consortium Sponsors are industry leaders dedicated to helping this SOA advocacy group promote the value and attainment of business-driven SOA, develop a lively community of practice, and get the message out that SOA is an important business strategy.

“The SOA Consortium is pleased to welcome Sparx Systems as a Sponsor and participant,” said Richard Mark Soley, Ph.D., executive director, SOA Consortium. “Through their sponsorship, Sparx Systems is showing their market leadership for business-driven adoption of SOA, supporting the ROI of SOA investments and helping the SOA Consortium in its mission to educate the marketplace on SOA as a winning business strategy.”

Together, SOA Consortium members are:

  • Redirecting the industry conversation to “business-driven SOA”
  • Exchanging real-world insights on preparing their business and IT organizations for SOA
  • Influencing technology vendors and service providers on the techniques, products and services to derive business value from SOA
  • Influencing standards-organizations on pragmatic standards related to SOA
