Motorola Selects AmberPoint to Manage Web Services Systems

IntelligentIntegration News - June 9, 2004
Motorola, Inc. has selected its software solutions from AmberPoint, Inc., to manage and secure the company's Web services-based systems. Motorola conducted a lengthy product review and completed an extensive proof of concept before deciding on AmberPoint Management Foundation, AmberPoint Service Level Manager, and AmberPoint Exception Manager.

Motorola is implementing a complex Web services-based system including J2EE services, those built on the Microsoft .NET Framework, packaged applications with Web services interfaces, and external Web services.

"The management layer is a critical component of any enterprise-class Web services system," said Toby Redshaw, corporate vice president of IT Strategy Architecture and eBusiness, Motorola. "After an extensive review of solutions, we saw that AmberPoint met all our Web services management requirements. AmberPoint has given us the service level management and security measures we need to be successful with our loosely coupled systems."

"It was clear in our initial meetings that our companies shared a common vision for Web services and that our management capabilities met all of Motorola's requirements," said AmberPoint CEO John Hubinger. "Adding Motorola to our community of marquee customers extends our leadership in this market and is further validation of the unique advantages of our software solutions."

AmberPoint features a uniquely non-invasive approach for managing distributed, heterogeneous service-oriented systems, AmberPoint integrates into any Web services environment to deliver comprehensive management, monitoring, and security capabilities without requiring additional coding to the Web services themselves. AmberPoint's Web services management solutions run natively in both .NET and Java, both leading Web services platforms.
