The intra-mart version 7 “visualizes” business processes and manages information for J-SOX control with SOA framework.
TOKYO, JAPAN and LA JOLLA, CA — July 11, 2008 – NTT DATA INTRAMART Corporation announced the release of intra-mart version 7 “IM-V7″ in July 2008, which is the first business system framework in Japan.
IM-V7 uses Caucho® Technology’s Resin application server. IM-V7 is a major upgrade of NTT DATA INTRAMART’s web system development framework. IM-V7 BPM includes products of Intalio, Inc., which is the leading vendor of open source BPM and SOA software, and achieves the advantage of a business system framework.
Yoshihito Nakayama, President of NTT DATA INTRAMART, said, “Until now, companies improved their efficiency by IT-based business applications. In this situation, non-IT operations and unclear business processes exist, thereby reducing work efficiency.” Nakayama continued, “IM-V7 BPM can ‘visualize’ such non-IT operations and unclear business processes in IT-based business applications. Additionally, IM-V7 BPM connects all business processes with corresponding temporary states dynamically so we can monitor and control all existing business processes in a company with the business system framework. This improves work efficiency and the total cost of management of an application.”
IM-V7 BPM features a new architecture for Japanese Sox (J-SOX) control and manages all information around J-SOX control including risk and control matrix. IM-V7 BPM can connect “visualized” business processes with their temporary states and improve total business processes dynamically. Additionally, the IM-V7 BPM manages service modules as a system framework, so it can accelerate SOA-based system integration.
Nakayama added, “IM-V7 supports more complex business processes as a business system framework. Resin’s high performance and reliability are necessary for us.”
Steve Montal, CEO of Caucho® Technology, participated in a conference in Tokyo last week organized by NTT DATA INTRAMART for the release of IM-V7. Montal observed, “Version 7 of intra-mart is exciting and timely for the market. The addition of BPM and J-SOX architecture is a significant step forward that will provide a great benefit to customers.” Montal added, “Caucho® and NTT DATA INTRAMART have been partners since 2001 and we look forward to continue our successful collaboration.”
NTT DATA INTRAMART plans to provide new professional services in collaboration with over 90 Japanese partners. These services include consultation for business process visualization, support service for internal controls and integration of B2B systems.
