SOA Software Atmosphere wins 2011 Golden Bridge Award for Application Development

Atmosphere API Management a Mobile Innovative Product award finalist

Los Angeles, CA – September 7, 2011 – SOA Software’s Atmosphere product has earned the prestigious Golden Bridge Award in the Application Development category. Atmosphere was also honored as a Finalist in the Mobile Innovative Products category. The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, innovations, case studies, product management, public relations, marketing campaigns and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world.

SOA Software’s Atmosphere provides a secure, robust platform that companies can use to share their application programming interfaces (APIs) with the application developer community. Enterprises are making business applications available as APIs to drive business growth and expose new channel opportunities. As a result APIs are reshaping the business landscape as dramatically as the rush to create an Internet presence with a web site did in the late 90s. APIs are becoming the primary way that businesses interact with their customers, reach new markets, and provide the global app development community with the tools to deliver business capabilities to customers.

Atmosphere manages, monitors and secures companies’ APIs ensuring that they deliver the level of service customers and partners require; the security of corporate and customer information and assets; and the integrity of the corporate brand. API providers and application developers interact and collaborate in a truly social online environment that encourages innovation and streamlines interaction.

More than 40 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2011 Golden Bridge Business Awards winners. The winners were honored during the awards dinner and presentation held last month in New York attended by the finalists, industry leaders, and judges.

“This award is a testament to SOA Software’s continued innovation,” said Alistair Farquharson, CTO SOA Software. “Atmosphere is the first truly enterprise-ready API Management solution, offering customers the robust, flexible capabilities they require for large-scale use. The community features are the first of their kind in the industry, bringing together a unique federation of API providers and developer communities.”
