Danish Broadband Supplier Uses JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform for Integration

The JBoss SOA Solution is Expected to Reduce Cybercity's Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO)

Red Hat announced that Cybercity has chosen to use the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform for system integration and middleware. The JBoss solution is expected to reduce Cybercity’s total cost of ownership (TCO).

In selecting an SOA solution, Cybercity initially evaluated Oracle Fusion, BEA WebLogic and JBoss solutions. The organization ultimately selected the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform over an existing BEA WebLogic platform and its pre-installed COTS closed source system for the provisioning of Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) customers. In the future the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform will serve as a link between systems such as the CRM/Customer support client, backend BSS/Billing system, external partners, ISP platforms and the actual network itself. The SOA Platform will be used for point-to-point integration as well as to expose systems as reusable services. As experience with the initial deployments is obtained, further use of the platform is expected.

“The versatility of the platform allows us to use one development tool, technology and set of standards for many purposes. Also, applications deployed on the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform can be monitored and controlled in a standardized way,” said Thorbjørn Blixen-Finecke, chief architect at Cybercity. “Our aim was to create a more agile IT stack that is familiar to a larger part of the IT-development organization, ultimately resulting in a shorter time to market and easier management and monitoring.”

In addition to TCO savings, deploying the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform solution as a standard framework will also provide Cybercity with the opportunity to benefit from easier monitoring, uniform deployment and governance of integration applications and the ability to reuse services and components.

“Red Hat is a proven alternative to other proprietary middleware platforms and has a sound business model with no licensing costs, which was one of the main reasons we chose the company as our preferred supplier,” said Blixen-Finecke. “Price was certainly a differentiator, but Red Hat’s reliable products and support are prerequisites for considering open source products. As an open source product, the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform also provides us with the opportunity to bring commonly used features back into the product, reducing in-house development costs.”

“Our collaboration with Cybercity fully demonstrates the benefits of the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform,” said Pierre Fricke, director, Product Line Management SOA Products at Red Hat. “The flexible nature of the system gives Cybercity the opportunity to quickly develop new business applications based on existing services and scale up or down with less development effort, providing Cybercity with a more agile IT stack and a shorter time to market.”
