As IBM prepares to announce its SOA strategy, BEA says it is the only company offering a complete solution, which is based on its WebLogic Platform.

A day before IBM Corp. is set to make an announcement regarding its service-oriented architecture (SOA) strategy, BEA Systems Inc. on Tuesday announced that it, too, is in the game and has SOA products and capabilities.

San Jose, Calif.-based BEA said it is the only company fully equipped to deliver SOA solutions today. "While many talk about SOA being a future trend, BEA customers are already benefiting from SOA thanks to BEA's technology," a BEA representative said. IBM is slated to announce an SOA strategy Wednesday, sources said.

BEA's SOA strategy is wrapped around the BEA WebLogic Platform. Company officials said only BEA has a unified, standards-based infrastructure, based on a common set of components—which can be reused across services and applications—that can quickly help customers build SOAs.

The company points to San Diego-based Accredited Home Lenders Inc., which used BEA's WebLogic Enterprise Platform 8.1 and accompanying tools to implement a service-oriented architecture for mortgage banking, as an example of its success in the SOA space.
