    Built for On-Demand Integration
    In today's accelerated business environment, simply delivering software
applications across the Internet is not a source of competitive advantage.
Truly sustainable business benefits come from delivering a vast array of
content and services "on demand" to a wide range of highly-distributed
customers, suppliers, business partners, and government agencies.  Large,
medium, and small organizations alike now realize that the challenge of
integrating with both internal and external systems to support these on-demand
business models is difficult to overcome.
    On-Demand Integration provides the fastest, most reliable, and most cost-
effective approach to securely connect any content, service, or software
across the Internet using Web services.  Cape Clear 7 for On-Demand
Integration lowers project risk through:
     - A single unified toolset that maximizes developer productivity and
       service reusability
     - A non-proprietary 'stack' bias that eliminates vendor lock-in giving
       organizations the freedom to integrate across complex and distributed
       heterogeneous systems
     - Non-invasive technology that is lightweight to deploy, but a
       heavyweight performer that scales to support the most demanding
       mission-critical performance scenarios

    Workday, Inc, ( which provides on-demand
Enterprise Business Services for human capital management
financial management

management (
and revenue management
(, embeds Cape
Clear's ESB as a part of the platform between Workday and its customers.

    "Workday's customers require the highest levels of reliability,

Swete, CTO of Workday, Inc.  "Cape Clear 7's clustering capabilities, together
with its enhanced development tools, will further extend our On-Demand
Integration capabilities for our customers."
