SAVARA Partners

The SAVARA project is an Enterprise/Solution Architect toolsuite, and as such is suitable for use by System Integrators as well as End User organisations. If you would be interested in becoming a partner of the project, then please contact us.

Alternatively, if you would like to join as an individual contributor, whether as a core developer or as a user (i.e. an Enterprise/Solution Architect with ideas on how to make the tools better), then see the community page.

Cognizant's involvement in SAVARA is driven through our desire to deliver solutions to our customers. We believe that better tooling is one of the key planks upon which we can do so and we believe that driving the requirements based on our profound understanding of a range of customers, their problems and the possible solutions to those problems will help make SAVARA a success. The success itself will help to ensure that we can provide the same benefits to our customer delivering value throughout the process.

We applaud the use of WS-CDL tooling to help in the design process as this will ensure the removal of ambiguity and fuel a move from art to engineering in the delivery of solutions.

Cognizant is a leading provider of information technology, consulting and business process outsourcing services. With more than 40 global delivery centers and over 58,000 employees, we combine a unique onsite/offshore delivery model infused by a distinct culture of customer satisfaction.

A member of the NASDAQ-100 Index and S&P 500 Index, Cognizant is a Forbes Global 2000 company and a member of the Fortune 1000 and is ranked among the top information technology companies in BusinessWeek's Info Tech 100, Hot Growth and Top 50 Performers listings.


Amentra encounters organizations on a daily basis that are plagued by a mismatch between business requirements and the artifacts of the development lifecycle. While there are tools and methodologies available to address these issues, results are often inconsistent and inefficient. The SAVARA project, with the tooling developed through the BPMN 2.0 and WS-CDL standards, will help create a single language for business users and developers and enable a level of automated testing that is simply not possible today. Amentra is proud to contribute its support and extensive experience in the business process management space to the SAVARA effort.


CSC is a global leader in providing technology-enabled solutions and services through three primary lines of business. These include Business Solutions and Services, the Managed Services Sector and the North American Public Sector. CSC’s advanced capabilities include system design and integration, information technology and business process outsourcing, applications software development, Web and application hosting, mission support and management consulting. The company has been recognized as a leader in the industry, including being named by FORTUNE Magazine as one of the World’s Most Admired Companies for Information Technology Services (2010).

CSC delivers world class solutions by focusing on research and building real architecture delivery capability in the field of service oriented architectures and cloud computing solutions. CSC is very pleased to be involved in the SAVARA Open Source project and to contribute toward building software tools and methodologies for enterprise and solution architects. CSC looks forward to benefiting from the deliverables / outcomes delivered by the SAVARA project. The SAVARA project will provide for increasing knowledge sharing between leading edge academic research and real business solutions.


SAVARA is an exciting SOA goverance intitaive from Redhat / JBoss. Hattrick Software is pleased to contribute to this project by leveraging its WS-CDL capabilities to provide the semantics linking Design Time with Run Time behavioural governance. By establishing this link, it becomes possible to ensure the formal alignment between the required business processes and the SOA implementation and to continuously monitor the SOA implementation against the WS-CDL description of the required process.


Academic Partners

The Mobility Group at Department of Computing, Imperial College London is a world leading research group in the area of theory of concurrent processes, distributed systems and mobility and its applications. The main research areas in the context of Savara include a theoretical foundation of a global and local models of protocols for distributed systems, formalisation of WS-CDL standards, and the design and implementations of programming languages which incorporate global and local models, including extensions of Java and other object oriented languages.

We are very pleased to be involved in the SAVARA Open Source project and to contribute to the accomplishments of its goals by providing theoretical foundations for the choreography framework, co-designing the protocol specification language Scribble and associated refinement technologies, designing programming languages and their runtime based on global and local models and building their prototypes, developing theories of testing, static checking and runtime verifications based on types and logics and building associated fundamental algorithms, which may be integrated into the tool chain. We find it great that we can contribute to formally founded software development methodologies, based on our academic research on the theory of multiparty session types and choreography, used in building distributed architectures and systems.


The Component and Distributed Systems research group (CODIS) conducts world leading research in the area of component oriented and distributed computing. The main research of the group is focused on software architectures to support component based distributed applications particularly on generic, extensible and flexible systems. The research targets diverse environments ranging from scalable high performance clusters to mobile computing devices with dynamic interaction of computing and information resources. Moreover, the group’s research has now expanded to include Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) which is an evolution of component oriented architectures and distributed computing. CODIS is very pleased to be involved in the SAVARA project and to contribute toward building software tools for enterprise and solution architects. The project also provides a great opportunity for knowledge exchange between leading edge academic research and real life industrial applications.
