SOA Software Gets Win In Australia

Los Angeles-based SOA Software, which develops software used for managing internal corporate APIs and software interfaces, reported a win today in Australia. SOA Software said Healthdirect Australia is using its API management products to bridge REST APIs and existing SOAP services. Financial details of the deal were not announced. SOA Software's software allows developers to access a range of information from Healthdirect Australia, using the common REST API, rather than the more difficult to use SOAP standard. SOA said that replacing those SOAP services with a REST API would have been "cost prohibitive" to replace.
