Cape Clear Software, a leading provider of Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) solutions to enable Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), has announced that START-IT Magazine, a leading publication for manufacturing executives, has recognized Cape Clear customer Stratus Technologies, Inc. with a 2006 Technology & Business Award. Stratus was honored for using Cape Clear's ESB software to achieve a more efficient, less costly, and more flexible B2B application integration architecture.
START-IT's Technology & Business Awards honor manufacturers and their vendors for using innovative technologies to solve critical business challenges. An outside panel of industry experts and analysts judge the entries.
With the Cape Clear ESB in place, Stratus was able to replace its legacy business-to-business (B2B) infrastructure. The standards-based ESB allows Stratus to manage third parties using Web services and automate key business processes such as invoicing, order confirmation, shipment, and pricing, as well as provide real-time process monitoring.
"Cape Clear's ESB has been a key component of our 2006 technology endeavors," said Joe Graves, CIO for Stratus. "With our previous solution, we needed to call in an expensive consultant to make changes to accommodate new partners; Cape Clear allows us to automate this process and keeps our organization running like clockwork. We're proud to be recognized by a leading manufacturing publication for our technology success this year. "
With its open, flexible technology, Cape Clear's ESB simplifies the most complex integration problems, eliminates vendor lock-in, and enables organizations to make a seamless transition to a Service-Oriented architecture. Because of its standards-based approach and dedication to providing a unified platform for effective collaboration, Cape Clear's ESB provides a simple solution to allow companies to quickly reap the benefits of SOA.
"Industry analysts and top editors agree that Cape Clear is leading the pack with its ESB solution, and the success Stratus Technologies has achieved speaks for itself," said Jeffrey Read, president and chief operating officer for Cape Clear. "We are honored that our work with Stratus has been validated as one of the most successful technology endeavors of the year."
Technology & Business Award winners were announced at the 2006 Technology & Business Awards Dinner on September 7 in Chicago, and will be highlighted in the Fall 2006 issue of START-IT magazine.
