Bringing to close an era of proprietary integration software, SeeBeyond, provider of an integrated composite application network built on a comprehensive integration platform, unveiled its "Can't Wait to Integrate" campaign. With this campaign, SeeBeyond is offering current customers of webMethods, Inc. dollar-for-dollar software license credit toward any available product sold as a part of the SeeBeyond Integrated Composite Application Network (ICAN) 5.0 suite.

ICAN 5.0 is a fully integrated, J2EE-certified integration suite that provides all of the open standards-based technologies needed to integrate people, processes, and systems across the extended enterprise. Customers leveraging ICAN 5.0 escape the traditional inefficiencies of patchwork integration suites including: business logic that does not interoperate and thus cannot be reused; disparate, standalone solutions for critical integration functions; and business and technical teams that cannot collaborate. With ICAN 5.0, customers will not hear from SeeBeyond, "we bought a company that can handle that" when asking for advanced integration functionality.

SeeBeyond agrees with the recent statement attributed to Senior Director of Product Marketing for webMethods, Jim Ivers in an article, “WebMethods Buys Into Web Services And XML," in InternetWeek, October 14, 2003: "Customers have told us that support for proprietary technology has reached the end of its natural lifecycle, and they are looking to service-oriented architectures. That's the message that's loud and clear."

Commenting on the shift from proprietary to standards-based architectures, Janelle Hill, program director, Integration and Development Practice, for META Group, Inc., adds, "SeeBeyond, recognizing early in 2000 the potentially devastating impact that Web services could have on the EAI space, was the only integration specialist to focus its resources on revamping its product from proprietary to standards-based technology. SeeBeyond's recently released ICAN 5.0 suite reflects this early recognition and responsiveness."

In line with its promise to deliver an unprecedented new platform that extends beyond traditional enterprise application integration and eclipses competing offerings in terms of openness, portability, usability and performance, SeeBeyond is helping customers gain access to a fully integrated infrastructure services framework for building composite applications by migrating existing logic into Web services today, not years in the future.
