Dallas, TX and Orlando,FL, October 30, 2007 - ITKO, Inc., the leading provider of SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) testing and validation solutions, today announced it is teaming up with Software AG, a global leader in business infrastructure software, at Integration World Orlando 2007 to demonstrate best practices for achieving SOA governance goals. Software AG and ITKO will host a joint session on the first day of the show, Tuesday, November 6.

Featuring Jim Mackay, chief marketing officer, ITKO and Gerd Schneider, senior director, Market Strategy for SoftwareAG, this session will explore how the CentraSite Community brings technology and services together to integrate with and complement the CentraSite Governance Edition. ITKO will illustrate how, by adopting quality across the extended delivery team and at a design time, change time and run time, companies can avoid IT risk and achieve the agility and business value expected from SOA.

"In our view, this is not just another SOA event, it is a great opportunity to demonstrate the combined value ITKO and Software AG deliver for customers," said Jim Mackay, CMO, ITKO. "Since LISA interoperates with CentraSite Governance Edition, as well as validating the underlying messaging, integration and process management platforms provided by Software AG, we believe our partnership will raise the bar for SOA quality."

Returning as a Gold Sponsor of Integration World, ITKO also on Tuesday will host a lunch roundtable on "SOA Quality Throughout the Lifecycle," and will demonstrate LISA Testing and Validation for webMethods/Software AG-powered SOA Governance, Integration and Business Process Management solutions, at Booth #29 in the Solutions Expo.

"We are pleased to have ITKO, a strategic partner for testing SoftwareAG solutions, returning to present their experiences and knowledge at Integration World," said Gerd Schneider. "Attendance and interest should be high this year, as SoftwareAG/webMethods customers want to learn about our integrated suite of solutions, as well as how our ecosystem of partners like ITKO in the CentraSite Community are working with us to take SOA governance and quality to the next level."
