The Forrester Wave™: Standalone SOA And Web Services Management Solutions, Q4 2007
Progress Software And AmberPoint Lead; Each Vendor Has Unique Strengths
October 22, 2007
Why Read This Report
Forrester evaluated leading standalone service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Web services management solution (or simply, SOA management) vendors across 100 criteria and found that Progress Software and AmberPoint, by virtue of their singular focus on the space, have the richest and cleanest solutions. IBM's offering is also strong, and it has many points of integration with the rest of IBM's Tivoli product line. SOA Software's solution includes SOA governance, but it lacks deep visibility into service implementations. Hewlett-Packard's solution has the best monitoring console and availability reporting, as well as integration into the vendor's IT management products. Java and .NET users will find much to like in CA's solution, which has the deepest visibility for service implementations centered on Java and .NET. When evaluating options for SOA management, in addition to these standalone solutions, it is very important to consider the embedded SOA management features of your existing application platform and integration platform vendors.
