DataDirect Nominated for SYS-CON's "SOAWorld Magazine Readers' Choice Awards"

DataDirect Shadow Version 7 Nominated for Best SOA Platform

DataDirect Shadow is a mainframe middleware software to provide a single unified, foundation architecture to simplify and accelerate the integration of mainframe data, business logic and screens with new Java, .NET and Web applications.  From a single platform, Shadow supports a full range of standards-based mainframe integration products.  Shadow version 7 includes important enhancements for SOA and data connectivity –most importantly the ability to exploit the IBM specialty engines for improved performance and lower mainframe TCO. 

With the Shadow product’s advanced middleware design and patent pending technology, SOA integration processing and data queries can be diverted from the mainframe’s general purpose processor (GPP) and offloaded to the System z9 Integration Information Processor (zIIP) and/or System z Application Assist Processor (zAAP) specialty engines. 

SOAWorld Magazine’s “SOA World Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards”
SOA World Magazine announced that nominations are now open for the SOA World Magazine Readers' Choice Awards, which recognize excellence in the software, solutions, or services provided by the industry's top vendors. SYS-CON's Readers' Choice Awards, also known as the "Oscars of the Software Industry," has been one of the most prestigious industry award programs for more than a decade. This year's SOA awards will be given in 19 categories and the award-winning products and services will be selected by SOA World Magazine readers. Winners will be announced at the SOA World Conference & Expo 2008 East, June 23-24 in New York City.

Service-oriented architectures have evolved over the past few years out of the original vision of loosely coupled Web services replacing constrained, stovepiped applications throughout enterprise IT. Every major enterprise technology vendor today has developed its own SOA strategy, supported by innumerable mid-size companies and start-ups offering specific SOA aspects or entire solutions.
