AppLabs and KnowledgeCore Partner to Create Unique SOA Offering

From: AppLabs Technologies
Published: Thu Oct 11 2007

AppLabs today announced it has signed a strategic partnership agreement with KnowledgeCore, an enterprise software solution company to support organizations in their implementation of Service-Orientated Architecture (SOA).

AppLabs and KnowledgeCore have developed a unique solution for the banking, financial services and insurance industries to help plan, prepare and implement high quality SOA developments and applications.

SOA is a significant development in uniting Business and IT. According to leading analysts, this approach will be used in more than half of new mission-critical operational applications and business processes designed in the next 12 months.

“The adoption of SOA is increasing at a phenomenal rate. Our partnership with KnowledgeCore will allow us to deliver a comprehensive quality management and testing solution with a real time dashboard. With SOA, organizations must get it right first time and therefore all stakeholders (Business and IT) need access to decision-making information instantly,” said Gary Davies, Vice President of Strategic Alliances, AppLabs.

David Sudworth, Marketing Director, KnowledgeCore, commented: “The nature of SOA implementation is extremely complex and traditional approaches to testing are insufficient. By partnering with AppLabs, we are able to provide a service that guarantees quality and testing is given the attention it deserves to ensure our clients effectively meet their business objectives.”
