The first solution, a family of products called Vitria Collaborative Applications, is designed to tackle common recurring integration problems for vertical industries by managing collaborative processes within and across enterprises.
The second solution, Vitria Collaborative Application for Collaborative Information Models Synchronization, is designed to ease the pain of integrating between multiple instalments of popular transactional applications, officials said.
"We can offer customers the buy vs. build approach," said Malcolm Lewis, vice-president of industry communications at Vitria.
"Once you buy [either product], it will be supported by Vitria, and we'll train you and give you documentation. It's going to be a much less risky proposition because customers are buying a proven solution that has already been deployed," Lewis said.
The new collaborative applications are built on and leverage Vitria's integration platform and focus on key integration problems.
Michele Rosen, an analyst IDC, said enterprises not willing to forfeit customisability or ease of use would be most attracted to the new solutions.
But enterprises with many legacy systems will still need a traditional toolkit approach to integration, she said.
"These types of pre-packaged solutions may be able to address as much as 80% of integration needs," Rosen said. "The 20% that is left often takes 80% of the work because of customisation."
