BEA SmartConnect 3.0 aims to reduce total cost of ownership and time-to-market for ERP applications by allowing rapid development of SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) based applications.
BEA SmartConnect 3.0 consists of complete connectivity solution designed to allow service-enabling enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications to quickly build new service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based applications.
The connectivity solution can provide key service integration for all the BEA WebLogic and BEA AquaLogic(R) product families and is designed to serve as a backbone for a “scalable, flexible and comprehensive” SOA platform.
SmartConnect 3.0 extends the benefits of service orientation of ERP connectivity by exposing ERP business logic as shared services for use within the enterprise.
The bottomline is that SmartConnect 3.0 allows organizations, seeking to integrate ERP processes into enterprise-wide business processes, the ability to start with a small SOA-based integration for ERP connectivity initiative and to move to a larger enterprise-wide, multi-domain project.
