IBM and SOA Software Partner with Merrill Lynch To Scale Out SOA and Web Services
IBM and SOA Software will work with Merrill Lynch to standardize on SOA Software Service Manager to secure and manage Web services. This large scale engagement, which leverages SOA Software's scalable Web service management software, was entered into jointly with SOA Software's services partner, IBM Global Services.

"The partnership of IBM Global Services and SOA Software will allow us to scale out use of SOA and Web services--technologies that are a strategic cornerstone of our process re-engineering initiatives," said Andy Brown, chief technology architect of Merrill Lynch.

Dassault and IBM Launch Product Lifecycle Management Portfolio
Dassault Systemes and IBM has announced the release of Version 5 of their Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) portfolio, comprised of CATIA for collaborative product development, and ENOVIA and SMARTEAM for product data and life- cycle management, collaboration, and decision support. Concurrently, Dassault Systemes announced DELMIA V5R16 for the digital development of factory and production processes.

"V5R16 helps our customers create more innovative products and leverage the talents of their global supply chains," noted Dominique Florack, Executive Vice President, R&D, Dassault Systemes. "The new release increases the power of the V5 PLM platform in three ways: by delivering unified PLM solutions for unrivalled gains in productivity; by extending the reach of 3D XML within the enterprise for ease of communication; and by accelerating performance with Microsoft Windows 64-bit support."

Florack outlined several new benefits:
Optimizes Business Processes - V5R16 extends the coverage of the large portfolio of V5 process-centric applications. It delivers significant new PLM capabilities for all industries in the modeling, simulation and electrical domains. New Product Simulation Management capabilities in ENOVIA fully integrate product simulation with design and lifecycle management processes - improving productivity for all companies that perform and manage product simulations.

Empowers Value Chain Innovation - V5R16 delivers powerful new collaboration capabilities within ENOVIA V5 VPM Navigator and SMARTEAM TeamPDM, enabling extended networks of partners to work together in globally distributed 3D environments. Entire engineering packages can now be shared and managed bi-directionally while protecting intellectual property, enabling true concurrent engineering across the value chain.

Streamlines Engineering-to-Manufacturing Cycles - V5R16 delivers on Dassault Systemes' Product-Process-Resource model. Major new extensions in the ENOVIA Engineering and Manufacturing hubs enable companies to obtain unique competitive advantages from the CATIA, DELMIA, ENOVIA and SMARTEAM PLM applications. V5R16 improves the integration of engineering and manufacturing environments: engineering specifications captured within the 3D environment are automatically made available and accounted for during manufacturing process planning, thereby ensuring a lean process flow from design intent to production set-up.
