IBM has unveiled a range of new business integration software capabilities designed to help organizations quickly begin incorporating the collaborative and intelligent capabilities of social media, mobile computing, and cloud computing into their enterprise applications.

The cornerstone of enabling enterprises to embrace these critical technologies is the new version of IBM WebSphere Application Server, which now provides clients with new flexibility for embedded deployments and is ready for cloud with built-in virtualization. This new offering provides the software platform that today powers more than 100,000 clients worldwide.

Complementing WebSphere Application Server is a range of new integration software offerings:

  • IBM Business Process Manager combines new capabilities around social, collaboration, governance and mobile to improve the way work is done, giving organizations increased visibility into the ways they change, manage, measure, and improve the processes that run their business.

  • IBM Operational Decision Management accelerates and simplifies the way organizations manage the business rules that control a wide range of decisions across business processes and applications. The new social-media-style user interface provides an intuitive environment for collaboration and simplifies searching, viewing, and making rule changes.

  • IBM WebSphere Cast Iron Live Web Application Programming Interface (API) Services allows enterprises to extend their services to support the emerging community of developers who are building new social, mobile, and cloud applications. This new purpose-built offering provides a comprehensive solution to deliver, socialize, and manage business API assets.
