Credit Suisse, one of the world's leading financial institutions and a global leader in SOA projects, chooses CentraSite, Software AG's SOA Governance solution, to support its strategic Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) programme.
Software AG's CentraSite will form the technological foundation for Credit Suisse's entire SOA program, helping the enterprise transform core processes into reusable services. The company's primary objective is to uncouple existing applications from each other in order to build a flexible application landscape. By mapping business processes in a modular way and shortening software development cycles, Credit Suisse expects to see measurable increases in business process efficiency.
CentraSite, the open standards-based SOA Governance solution co-developed by Software AG and Fujitsu, controls and administers all artifacts in an SOA-based application landscape. Credit Suisse will use CentraSite to store interface descriptions and map the structure of associated mainframe applications.
Credit Suisse will implement CentraSite as part of the first phase scheduled for completion by September 2007. Subsequent phases will extend CentraSite as the central registry and repository for Credit Suisse's SOA application landscape worldwide, replacing its proprietary solution. Credit Suisse is at the forefront of using SOA, having established its program in 1998.
"We evaluated more than ten SOA Governance solutions, ultimately selecting CentraSite," explains Andreas Kurmann, Director Special Projects at Credit Suisse. "We were convinced by the product's rich functionality and high level of maturity. Both show that Software AG understands the requirements for building and running a Service-Oriented Architecture."
"CentraSite can support efficient modularisation of even the largest IT landscapes to help companies protect their past IT investments and make their existing applications future-proof," said Dr. Peter Kürpick, Member of the Executive Board at Software AG.
