Software AG Joins Microsoft in Interop Vendor Alliance.

The Alliance is Committed to Connecting People, Data and Diverse Systems

DARMSTADT, Germany -- Software AG has joined the new Interop Vendor Alliance, announced today by Microsoft, as a founding member. The alliance is committed to delivering interoperability to its customers and was established to connect people, data and diverse systems. Member companies are working collaboratively to ensure better interoperability across the industry.

Joining the Interop Vendor Alliance allows Software AG to enhance its commitment to openness and interoperability, a commitment required by enterprises that are adopting services oriented architecture (SOA). Software AG and Microsoft, through the Interop Vendor Alliance, are committed to creating transparency between CentraSite and the Microsoft platform.

Earlier this year, Software AG and Fujitsu jointly announced the formation of the CentraSite Community, a rapidly growing coalition of partners committed to delivering on the promise of SOA interoperability and reuse. The aim of the community is to help enterprises to break down legacy, stove-pipe applications into modular components that can be leveraged across different business lines and units.

"The Interop Vendor Alliance offers a great way for Software AG to continue to add value to our customers while we expand our ecosystem," said Dr. Stefan Ried, Vice President of Product Management at Software AG. "The crossvision suite in general, and CentraSite in particular, enables re-use of any services exposed from business logic located virtually anywhere."

"We are excited to have Software AG in the Interop Vendor Alliance," said Simon Brown, Vice President of DPE EMEA for Microsoft. "The Alliance will bring a new level of efficiency for developers, allowing them access to a wide range of services providers."
