7/1/2005Information and Communication University3 Overview Web services platforms is –An integrated entity that implements Web services specifications to enable the development, execution and management of SOA applications and content based on Web services technologies. The individual parts of a Web services platform cannot serve as a comprehensive platform unless they have underlying integrative processes and technology. Although much of the value of the Web services platform is as an integrated entity, the nature of platforms provides for many opportunities to augment the platform’s capabilities.
7/1/2005Information and Communication University4 Overview Every vendor’s Web services platform must: –Be able to provide a runtime to execute Web services. –Have the basic functionality to produce or develop Web services and Web services/SOA solutions via the capabilities of an integrated service environment (ISE). –Have some ability to manage Web services/SOA and applications that use Web services in terms of providing basic security and governance, but it does not have to have full Web services management or framework capabilities.
7/1/2005Information and Communication University5 Web Services and SOA At first glance, the focus seems to be shifting from Web services to SOA, but there is more to this beneath the surface. Both terms are broad, and there is a simple relationship: Web services remain the foundation of standards-based SOA. A Web services platform is an example of an SOA platform. It is also the most important example of an SOA platform because its basis in standards give it unique value.
7/1/2005Information and Communication University6 Web Services and SOA Use of the term “Web services” in “Web services platform” does not imply exclusive use of Web services technologies. Instead, most will also incorporate technologies that do not employ Web services as part of the offerings.
7/1/2005Information and Communication University7 Related Terms to Quadrant Leaders –These are high-viability venders with proven track records in Web services as well as vision and business investment. Challengers –These well-executing vendors compete but do not offer strongly differentiated vision of commitment to innovation in Web services. Visionaries –These vendors are differentiated by innovation, but have not achieved the record of execution in Web-services-enabled software to give themselves the high visibility of the leaders. Niche Players –These vendors’ products can solve problems, although the vendors’ vision and commitment are relatively narrowly focused.

7/1/2005Information and Communication University9 BEA Systems BEA has a Web services platform the has been widely implemented, and recently it has announced its intention to extend this platform as a separate product line called AquaLogic. BEA has a longstanding reputation as a creator of industrial- strength middleware products, and the capabilities of its Web services platform live up to that reputation. BEA has been quite active in a leadership role in a number of standardization efforts, it has only recently shown product vision and leadership. BEA is a challenger in the Web services platform space, and it is expected to improve its position as the AquaLogic vision is realized.

7/1/2005Information and Communication University12 Fujitsu Fujitsu introduced Web services support in 2001 and today has extended capabilities for the creation, management, deployment and integration of Web services across its entire Interstage Suite. Although it is a member of all the Web services standards and interoperability organizations, Fujitsu’s influence has been less visible compared to other Web services platform vendors. If Fujitsu continues to build on its service-based application modeling capabilities and expands its depth of Web services support, its positioning will improve in future years.

7/1/2005Information and Communication University14 IBM From a Web services platform perspective, IBM focuses on supporting its tools and implementing a broad platform for Web services implementation. It offers significant and valuable service packages to support IT departments that seek to migrate to SOA. One challenge for IBM is the relatively loose integration between WebSphere components, which affects the ease with which customer can deploy the platform technology. IBM is well-positioned at a conceptual crossroads in Web services that includes IT services, software and strategy.
