SOA Software Becomes Akana

Los Angeles-based SOA Software said this morning that it has renamed the company to Akana, as it has broadened its software base. According the company, which is led by Paul Gigg, the name change comes as the company has expanded beyond its roots in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web Services, and now addresses API management, cloud integration, DevOps, and other enterprise software areas. The name change is actually the second for the company, which changed its name to SOA Software in March of 2005 from its original name, Digital Evolution.
