iWay Software, an Information Builders company and an innovator of enterprise integration solutions, and Active Endpoints, Inc., the leading independent provider of BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) products and services, today announced a strategic technology alliance in which iWay Software will integrate and resell Active Endpoints' ActiveBPEL products as a key component of iWay SOA Middleware.

iWay Software's existing technology provides rapid solutions for creating "stateless" services from disparate technologies on disparate platforms. iWay's enterprise service bus (ESB), iWay Service Manager, enables companies to create, orchestrate, and manage services quickly and easily. In addition, many of the leading integration companies, such as BEA, Microsoft, Oracle, Sun, and others, resell or co-sell much of the technology used in iWay Service Manager.

ActiveBPEL is a family of platform-neutral, standards-based software solutions that allow organizations to quickly automate process flows internally and across their supplier, customer, and partner ecosystems. Unlike proprietary solutions that interface with the BPEL specification through import and export utilities, ActiveBPEL supports BPEL as its native process orchestration language.

In addition to optimizing product development, the technology and business alliance also promotes joint sales and marketing activities.

Full BPEL support is now available in iWay SOA Middleware, where it is called "iWay Process Manager." Additional integration work is ongoing, with tighter integration planned for release in the fourth quarter, 2006.
