Mercury buys Systinet

This week came the announcement that Mercury Interactive is bulking up its Business Technology Optimization (BTO) approach by adding SOA governance to the offer.

Link: Mercury buys Systinet in SOA governance play

... Governance capabilities are critical for Mercury. The company defines governance as the delivery of a predictable, consistent SOA, with control, visibility, and integrity to ensure the reuse of business services. Optimizing quality, performance, and availability of SOA applications also is part of governance, according to Mercury.

Key Systinet products cited include Systinet Registry (Overview, Articles, Company), which is a UDDI-compliant registry for managing and publishing reusable business services and other SOA services, and Systinet Policy Manager, for streamlining policy creation and management and automating service validation. ...

James Governor goes on to ask and then answer the question Why? and notes that in taking this approach, Mercury seems to be pitting itself directly against IBM's Tivoli Relationship Registry based on the Collation acquisition.

It's also fun to see Governor, InfoWorld journalists and Miko Matsumura point out the benefits of this move to Infravio, and the resulting higher profile as a potential acquisition by the likes of BEA, BMC or one of the other majors in this area.
