At IBC2007, enterprise intellectual property management software provider SOPHOI showed the integration of its business rights, licensing and royalty management solution with the IBM Media Hub Solution Framework.
Media Hub is IBM's services oriented architecture (SOA)-based solution for the media and entertainment industry. The SOPHOI iPLS 3.0 enterprise IP management solution enables media and entertainment companies to identify, organize and license their rights; structure complex licensing contracts; manage royalties; and receive performance information.
By integrating iPLS 3.0 with the IBM Media Hub Solution Framework, media and entertainment companies with previously isolated systems, users and business units can now access business rights, licensing and royalty information more easily and effectively.
Deployed on IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1, SOPHOI’s iPLS 3.0 has extended its iPLS Integration Hub adapters as standard Web services, enabling other heterogeneous applications in the enterprise to exchange business rights information with iPLS using open industry standards such as XML, SOAP and WSDL.
