Stratus Technologies Completes B2B Manufacturing Integration With Cape Clear Software's ESB

Stratus Technologies Completes B2B Manufacturing Integration With Cape Clear Software's ESB

MAYNARD, Massachusetts, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Stratus Technologies, Inc., a provider of fault-tolerant computer servers, technologies, and services, has successfully replaced its existing, legacy business-to-business (B2B) infrastructure with Cape Clear Software's Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). Stratus is using Cape Clear's ESB to manage third parties over the Internet to automate key business processes such as invoicing, order confirmation, shipment, and pricing, and to provide real-time process monitoring. Stratus chose Cape Clear's ESB because it provides a means of integrating its partners, systems, and processes faster and in a more flexible and cost-effective manner.

Stratus Technologies' existing B2B integration infrastructure is built on proprietary technology, and as a result, it was costly to maintain and difficult to adapt to new business requirements. They sought a new approach that would reduce the cost and complexity of managing interactions with their business partners, while supporting their business processes today and in the future. Using Cape Clear's ESB, Stratus was able to use standard Web services to quickly expose and integrate their internal systems with those of their contract manufacturers. Because the ESB includes full support for BPEL (Business Process Execution Language), Stratus was able to model standards-based business processes, such as order confirmation and coordination of change orders with third-party contract manufacturers. In addition, Cape Clear's ESB provides the tools that enable them to rapidly build and deploy new business processes and applications as required on an ongoing basis.

"We were attracted to Cape Clear because its standards-based approach promised to address many of the shortcomings of our legacy B2B integration software," commented Cecilia LeBlanc, IS Manager, Oracle Enterprise Applications, Stratus Technologies. "With Cape Clear, it's easy for us to accommodate the variety of communication formats that a partner's system requires. With the previous solution, we needed to call in an expensive consultant to make changes to accommodate new partners."

"SOA and the ESB are the focal point for the convergence of business and IT," said Annrai O'Toole, CEO at Cape Clear Software. "We're now moving from a world of expensive, proprietary, and brittle point-to-point integrations to a world where loosely coupled processes can be easily modeled and modified to map to the dynamic nature of the business, both inside and across the firewall. Using SOA and Web services, we have an architectural framework that enables technology to rapidly meet the changing needs of business. Cape Clear's ESB provides the tools and infrastructure required to translate that framework into successful deployments."
