SOA Link Adds Testing/QA Partners
SOA Link is very similar to another initiative, the Governance Interoperability Framework (GIF), created by Systinet in April 2005. Systinet and Infravio compete in the service registry market, both providing products aimed at providing a registry/repository solution for advanced SOA deployments. Systinet was acquired by Mercury in January.
HP, Amberpoint, Layer 7 Technologies, Composite Software and Reactivity participate in both GIF and SOA Link. The need for having two competing initiatives has been questioned in the past.
