SOA is a revolutionary design framework to re-architect discrete functions into standard business process modules for enterprises to realize rapid, low- cost information systems with improved quality. Due to its flexible and business-oriented concepts, SOA has seen rapid acceptance across vertical industries, organizations, and geographies including the China market. According to Gartner Inc., SOA will be used in more than 80 percent of new mission-critical operational applications and business processes by 2010.
VanceInfo established the SOA Solution Lab with the goal of developing SOA industry solutions for clients based on the IBM SOA technology and platforms. Built upon rich industry knowledge in technology, telecommunications, financial services, manufacturing, retail and distribution, the solutions will be designed to help businesses improve the return on investment (ROI) of IT infrastructure and to respond more quickly and cost-effectively to changing market conditions.
David Chen, President of VanceInfo, and Matt Wang, Vice President of IBM China and President of IBM China Development Lab (CDL), attended the opening ceremony. "This collaboration with IBM SOA is a new milestone for VanceInfo, and has expanded and deepened our long-term strategic partnership with IBM. The newly opened lab will enhance our technical capabilities and help us further expand our potential in IT services." David Chen added, "With more than 7000 clients IBM is a pioneer and a dominant player in the SOA field. IBM pays great attention to alliances and helps its business partners penetrate into vertical markets, and we are pleased to join IBM in these efforts."
"VanceInfo is a valuable partner," stated Dr. Matt Wang, "IBM will provide strong support to VanceInfo SOA Solution Lab in terms of software, training and solution certifications. I believe this cooperation will enhance our solution family, and help VanceInfo further develop its solution capabilities to meet demands from various industries, which will result in a win-win for both our companies and our customers."
