San Mateo, Calif. - 20 March 2007

ESB Platform Leader Sets New Standard of Reliability, Availability, Scalability, and Performance for On-Demand Integration Projects

Cape Clear® Software, the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Platform leader, today announced the general availability of Cape Clear 7, which is designed to meet the challenging reliability, scalability, and performance requirements of the rapidly-growing On-Demand Integration market. In development for more than a year and beta tested by more than 150 customers, the Cape Clear 7 ESB Platform delivers uptime and rapid recovery with unprecedented scalability. In an Intel® benchmarking study, Cape Clear 7 supported more than 5 million simultaneous BPEL business processes, and generated more than 37 million daily transactions without compromising performance. Cape Clear 7 also ships an advanced implementation of the Eclipse toolset for rapid ESB Platform development and management, all from within one integrated and easy-to-use environment.

“Cape Clear 7 represents the sum total of our experience as the ESB Platform leader with the largest production deployments in the world” said Annrai O’Toole, CEO, Cape Clear. “Once again Cape Clear, has converted our leadership position into accelerated business value for our customers.”

Built for On-Demand Integration

In today’s accelerated business environment, simply delivering software applications across the Internet is not a source of competitive advantage. Truly sustainable business benefits come from delivering a vast array of content and services “on demand” to a wide range of highly-distributed customers, suppliers, business partners, and government agencies. Large, medium, and small organizations alike now realize that the challenge of integrating with both internal and external systems to support these on-demand business models is difficult to overcome.

On-Demand Integration provides the fastest, most reliable, and most cost-effective approach to securely connect any content, service, or software across the Internet using Web services. Cape Clear 7 for On-Demand Integration lowers project risk through:

• A single unified toolset that maximizes developer productivity and service reusability
• A non-proprietary ‘stack’ bias that eliminates vendor lock-in giving organizations the freedom to integrate across complex and distributed heterogeneous systems
• Non-invasive technology that is lightweight to deploy, but a heavyweight performer that scales to support the most demanding mission-critical performance scenarios

Workday, Inc, which provides on-demand Enterprise Business Services for human capital management, financial management, resource management, and revenue management, embeds Cape Clear’s ESB as a part of the platform between Workday and its customers.

“Workday’s customers require the highest levels of reliability, scalability, and performance from our on-demand business services,” said Stan Swete, CTO of Workday, Inc. “Cape Clear 7’s clustering capabilities, together with its enhanced development tools, will further extend our On-Demand Integration capabilities for our customers.”
