Vitria To Add Graphical Modeling To App Integration Software

Vitria Technology Inc. next month will update its BusinessWare enterprise application integration product with graphical modeling capabilities that are intended to help companies take coding out of the integration process.

BusinessWare 2.1 will have graphical modeling that helps to map business processes between disparate applications, typically one of the most difficult aspects of application integration. "The main focus is to require less and less programming -- to let business analysts, as opposed to engineers, connect legacy and packaged applications," says Alex Osadjinski, Vitria VP of marketing. By having business analysts instead of programmers doing the work, the processes will better reflect business needs, and companies can save their programming resources.

The release will have better tools for building connectors -- the modules that sit between an application and the integration engine -- for legacy applications. Vitria also will add support for the Extensible Markup Language in BusinessWare 2.1. "A lot of customers are looking at XML as the standard language between applications," says Osadjinski. The move to XML is part of a larger movement by enterprise application integration vendors to build their products on industry standards, so that data transfer between applications is simplified.

A future release, due toward the middle of the year, will include process templates, a collection of best practices from previous Vitria implementations that can walk customers through process modeling and implementation and help them avoid full customization.
