Dow Corning Selects Systinet 2 for Enterprise SOA Governance and Lifecycle Management.

BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Systinet, a leading software provider of the foundation for SOA governance and lifecycle management, today announced that Dow Corning, a global leader in silicon-based technology and innovation, is deploying Systinet 2 as a trusted "system of record" and complete set of capabilities for establishing the visibility, control, quality and trust critical for its SOA success. Dow Corning chose Systinet 2 to quickly scale its SOA, providing the foundation for business agility and service reuse without sacrificing IT control or predictability. Using Systinet 2, Dow Corning's SOA initiative will increase IT flexibility and the ability to better align IT with business in order to ultimately drive new revenue opportunities.

Dow Corning's SOA is focused on enabling the Value Chain Initiative (VCN), a program designed to support collaboration across all business partners, suppliers and customers to deliver products and services in a way that maximizes value to all the participants. Core requirements for the VCN program are maintaining master and transactional data integrity, and dramatically improving the ability to make faster, better business decisions based on better information access. Dow Corning already has over 250 web services in production, many derived from the company's SAP implementation, and this number is expected to grow rapidly. Services represent critical business functionality used throughout the company for manufacturing and resource planning, including accounting, purchasing, demand management, and supplier management. The company recognized the need for an SOA foundation that would help manage the expected growth, ensure service consistency and quality, and promote services as reusable business assets.

Dow Corning's initial requirement was for a "system of record" to catalog and advertise available services; however, there was also a need for governance and lifecycle applications to help create, manage and enforce policies, organize information, and manage the relationships between service consumers and providers. Dow Corning chose Systinet 2 because it offered the complete SOA governance and lifecycle management functionality the company required, backed by Systinet's strong experience with over 170 customers in the SOA market.

"We believe that for SOA to be successful and provide business value, Job One must be governance," said Kris Zywicki, Enterprise Architect, Dow Corning. "It was clear to us that the Systinet 2 platform was the right solution for our needs because in order for an SOA to scale and be successful, governance is an absolute necessity. With Systinet, we can capitalize on the flexibility and agility of a service-oriented architecture that will help to increase the bottom line."

Dow Corning chose Systinet 2 in order to associate IT and business policies with services, allowing information about the quality, availability, and specific parameters of its services to be available to potential consumers. Also, Dow Corning will be able to manage the access of those services. Features of Systinet 2, such as the Policy Manager, Information Manager and Contract Manager will enable Dow Corning to create, manage and enforce policies, have better insight over service modeling and related information, and form a marketplace for services by managing consumer and provider relationships.

"We are pleased that Dow Corning chose Systinet for its impressive enterprise SOA initiative," said Roman Stanek, Founder, Systinet. "Systinet can help Dow Corning to manage the increased independence of services-based IT demands which an SOA brings, ultimately allowing for Dow Corning to have a more flexible and agile business with faster time to market for new products and services."
