AmberPoint Leads with Strong Customer Adoption for SOA and Web Services Management

AmberPoint is pleased to announce that it has been named a “Leader” among eleven SOA and Web services management vendors in a recent Forrester Research report, "Forrester Wave: SOA and Web Services Management, Q1 2006, Forrester Research Inc. February 10, 2006.” The report points to a strong product offering and customer traction as reasons for placing AmberPoint in the Leader position.

"AmberPoint SOA Management System provides a broad, integrated solution for service-oriented architecture (SOA) management that can either operate as a standalone or integrate with other SOA and enterprise IT management infrastructures. The product has at least basic functionality for almost all of Forrester’s evaluation criteria, making it a clean unified package for addressing a wide range of SOA management issues.” (Forrester Research, "AmberPoint Leads with Strong Customer Adoption for SOA and Web Services Management," February 10, 2006.)

According to the report, “Overall, the product scores consistently well across a number of criteria categories and is especially strong in IT-level management, product architecture, administrative tooling and alert management.”

Forrester cited AmberPoint as an “especially good fit” for buyers that:
* Take a broad view of integrated SOA management
* See SOA management fitting into a broader SOA platform picture
* Want a single package for SOA management

The report highlighted several strong features of AmberPoint's platform, awarding the company perfect 5 out of 5 scores for Service Level Management; Exception Management Tools; Deployment Styles and Requirements; Management Administration; Management Console; Administrative Integration; and Autoresponse.

“It's gratifying to see such thorough independent research validate what our customers have been experiencing,” said Ed Horst, vice president of Marketing at AmberPoint. “We work closely with our customers to make sure our product roadmap is in sync with their growing requirements for SOA governance. Our responsiveness to the market has paid off in evaluations by leading organizations, industry partners and analyst firms alike.”
