Napersoft Accepted into the IBM SOA Specialty

9 October 2006

Napersoft, the leading customer communications management solution provider, today announced its acceptance to the IBM SOA Specialty after successfully completing IBM’s rigorous SOA technical and business requirements. With this achievement Napersoft CCM integrates with the IBM SOA Foundation, a single, integrated platform that combines the industry’s top application server and integration capabilities

The IBM SOA Specialty in the PartnerWorld for Industry Networks provides technical enablement and skills-building roadmap for partners who want to access the growing SOA market opportunity. For those business partners who achieve key milestones, the Specialty will also provide SOA-specific marketing and sales benefits, such as SOA Connection Events to meet directly with IBM SOA Sales specialists and discounted print advertising and telemarketing. IBM Sales Connections, a consultative service in the PartnerWorld Industry Networks, helps business partners close SOA deals quickly by connecting them with the relevant IBM SOA and local field sales team.

“SOA is an increasingly important requirement for banking, financial markets and insurance companies to reach business goals,” said Sandy Carter, vice president, SOA and WebSphere, IBM Software Group. "Building a close relationship with partners including Napersoft helps us to assure that our customers have the business and technical resources to successfully use an SOA to respond to rapidly changing business conditions."

“Customers are requiring new document composition solutions to be SOA-based in order to improve customer satisfaction and reduce operating costs through business innovation, process streamlining and standardization,” said Bart Carlson, president, Napersoft. ”And, it is extremely important to technology executives who are striving to improve IT agility, integration and reusability of document composition solutions to better align with business.”
