Business gets across to IT

Software AG today unveiled crossvision, a comprehensive approach to synchronizing business with IT. Crossvision is an SOA suite allowing enterprises to rapidly and cost-effectively leverage existing assets and create new business processes, the company says.

The crossvision suite consists of six complementary components that adapt to an organization's requirements.

SOA management and governance: Crossvision provides management and governance capabilities to give organizations transparency and control.

Composite applications: To rapidly compose new business applications based on existing systems, crossvision supports advanced AJAX technologies and easy composition of rich media user interfaces.

Legacy modernization: By leveraging, rather than replacing, an existing IT landscape, crossvision reduces risk, expense and downtime. All systems are treated as first-class citizens of the SOA, including standard applications, legacy systems, best-of-breed and homegrown systems.

Unification of BPM and SOA: Crossvision drives a process-centric approach to SOA by incorporating business process management that enables new business processes, from modeling through automation and management to process optimization.
