JetBlue Airways has selected SOA Software's Service Manager to create, secure, monitor and manage its Web services architecture. Widely deployed in Fortune 500 and large global organizations, Service Manager will enable JetBlue to expose numerous Microsoft .NET™ Web services for internal and external partner consumption.
“We are very excited to be working with JetBlue,” said Eric Pulier, founder and executive chairman of SOA Software. “As companies like JetBlue begin to rely on Web services, they face the challenge of building scaleable and reusable networks. Service Manager is designed to secure and manage enterprise-class SOA implementations today, while being flexible enough to meet the IT environment of tomorrow.”
JetBlue, based in New York, adopted Web services and a service-oriented architecture to help the company meet growing demand for its low-cost, high-quality air services. However, migration to this architecture was not without its challenges. Jet Blue quickly realized that not only did it have to secure, manage and monitor its own Web services, but it needed an infrastructure that could support its partner’s needs as well. JetBlue also wanted to migrate to a service-oriented approach quickly, while working with as few IT vendors as possible.
To meet its needs, JetBlue relied on
Microsoft’s .NET platform, BizTalk Server, and SQL Server. SOA Software’s Service Manager was deployed
by JetBlue to provide the critical mediation layer needed to secure and manage
Web service transactions occurring across the company’s network.
The goal was to provide Web services that
were easy to use, yet fully governed to meet JetBlue’s policy
requirements. “After reviewing all the key players in the
market including Systinet, Amberpoint, Actional and Reactivity, we found that
SOA Software’s Service Manager was the best solution on the market to address
our requirements,” said Tyrone Paige, senior software architect at JetBlue.
