Fineos Corporation, a global provider of innovative enterprise software solutions for insurance, bancassurance, and government, today announced its acceptance into the IBM SOA Specialty after successfully completing IBM's rigorous SOA technical and business requirements.
With this achievement, FINEOS integrates with the IBM software and strategy for SOA and will also be listed in IBM's comprehensive resource for reusable IT services based on IBM and IBM Business Partner Software; the SOA Business Catalog.
"SOA is an increasingly important business requirement for enterprises because of the business flexibility it enables," said Sandy Carter, Vice President of IBM SOA and WebSphere. "FINEOS' commitment to SOA provides their customers with a powerful way to reduce integration costs while rapidly deploying solutions across their enterprises."
"We are delighted that IBM has accepted FINEOS into the IBM SOA Specialty. SOA is an increasingly important architectural requirement for insurance customers. With the combination of the FINEOS Insurance suite and the IBM infrastructure, we can now present a compelling SOA offering that speaks to both the business and technical sides of an organisation," said Michael Kelly, CEO, FINEOS Corporation.
FINEOS solutions are built on the FINEOS Enterprise Platform, a customer and case centric, component-based product platform that delivers powerful core processing against an enterprise business model. The basis of the FINEOS Enterprise Platform is the rules-driven FINEOS technical architecture (FINEOS TA) which is web-centric and deployed on a J2EE-based technology stack with a pre-built data model ensuring that systems can be easily integrated within an existing legacy environment.
