SpiritSoft and HNC Software Team to Enhance Business Process Integration Wednesday 20 March 2002 PDF Print SpiritSoft today announced an alliance with HNC Software Inc. (Nasdaq: HNCS), a leading provider of high-end analytics and decision management software, to provide best-of-breed applications to the financial services and insurance sectors for critical business process integration. As a result of this alliance, SpiritSoft and HNC have agreed to promote the use of SpiritSoft’s SpiritWave technology to increase the connectivity of data sources across a network with Blaze Advisor From HNC business rules management software. SpiritWave’s open JMS framework allows Blaze Advisor rule services to use information from a broad array of data sources and to interact with other systems using SpiritSoft’s message-oriented middleware (MoM) component from their open JMS framework. Customer benefits from this collaborative effort include superior data integration, secure data transfer, and a more powerful tool set for rules applications. Blaze Advisor From HNC allows companies to manage the decision processes that drive business operations by incorporating their own business rules as an independent component of an application. SpiritWave, SpiritSoft’s pioneering messaging technology based on the Java Message Service (JMS), enables enterprises to leverage and integrate existing legacy systems and reuse their functionality to build robust, flexible and future-proofed applications. “SpiritSoft’s best-of-breed messaging technology is an ideal complement to Blaze Advisor,” said James Taylor, director of product marketing for Blaze Advisor From HNC. “The use of message-oriented middleware extends our data integration capabilities to offer customers additional options for incorporating critical information in their business processes and improve revenues.” “With its standards-based approach to integration and proven success in the financial services market, HNC is a natural ally for SpiritSoft,” said Tom Kinney, Vice President of Business Development, SpiritSoft. “This partnership enables us to exploit our companies’ technological strengths to enhance our business process integration offering.” About HNC HNC is a leading provider of high-end analytic and decision management applications and tools that enable global companies to manage customer interactions by converting data and business experiences into real-time recommendations.
