Cape Clear and Appian Announce Partnership

    Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and Business Process Management (BPM)
    pure-play leaders extend services with integrated process management

    SAN MATEO, Calif. and VIENNA, Va., Nov. 29 /CNW/ -- Cape Clear(R)
Software, the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Platform leader, announces a new
alliance with Appian, an innovative global provider of business process
management (BPM) technology. The combination enables the design, development
and deployment of end-to-end business processes spanning system-to-system
integration and service orchestration with Cape Clear's ESB platform, and
advanced human-facing process management delivered by Appian's comprehensive
BPM suite, Appian Enterprise.
    Customers can now enjoy the benefits of an integrated BPM and ESB
environment that facilitates rapid time to solution, process simplification
and less complex integration to existing systems.  By bridging the gap between
human interactions and system interactions, users of the combined solution
will significantly improve their ability to change and modify enterprise
process applications while leveraging the benefits of service oriented
architecture (SOA).
    Cape Clear and Appian have already engaged in multiple opportunities
across a variety of industries in North America. Future plans will focus on
leveraging implementation and support best practices, embedded components, and
other new features that extend the capabilities of both products.
    "Clients are increasingly looking to bring together SOA and BPM in order
to connect IT assets with the processes that ultimately consume them,"
commented Ian Charlesworth, principal analyst at Ovum. "This partnership plays
directly to this market demand".
    "SOA plus BPM is a compelling combination for enterprises, but although
it's an easy equation to write down, in practice it's not easy to bring the
value of these two initiatives together," says Neil Ward-Dutton, research
director at analyst firm Macehiter Ward-Dutton. "This partnership leverages
the strengths of two best-of-breed technology providers to help customers
address the opportunities and challenges that come from pursuing BPM and SOA
    "With this partnership, Cape Clear's ESB is blazing a trail in on-demand,
system-to-system integration and process management," said Rich Novak, vice
president worldwide sales and service at Cape Clear. "Our customers are coming
to us with an increasing set of use cases where their integrations and
services need to interact with people in diverse and rich ways. We can now
offer them sophisticated support for human workflows via this partnership with
Appian. This is further evidence of the central role played by the ESB in all
aspects of business integration and automation."
    "This partnership enables organizations to align their SOA and BPM
objectives from the project start," commented Samir Gulati, vice president,
marketing at Appian. "Customers will realize a better long-term return on both
