    SAN FRANCISCO and EDISON, N.J., April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Callixa, creator
 of the leading data integration solution, and DMR Consulting, a global
 provider of consulting services and technology-based business solutions, today
 announced a newly formed partnership wherein DMR Consulting will implement
 Callixa's Integration Server as part of its full-service IT consulting
 practice.  As a result of this alliance, companies will be able to solve all
 of their enterprise data integration needs through a single consulting
 engagement.
     "With modern e-business demanding rapid IT infrastructure growth, many of
 our clients are struggling with how to take advantage of the mass of legacy
 data they have created," said Ron Hackmann, Vice President, DMR Consulting.
 "The Callixa Integration Server is a valuable tool in this emerging market
 space. It thoroughly complements our integration capabilities, allowing us to
 provide more comprehensive integration answers to our clients."
     With the introduction of the Integration Server, Callixa has developed the
 first Enterprise Information Integration platform that helps companies create
 a standard data access layer in the enterprise. The solution allows companies
 to map data across multiple disparate data sources, and uses a common
 metadata-based data structure that supports any application in the enterprise.
     The Integration Server provides dynamic, bi-directional access to, and
 modification of, data located in multiple sources, enabling users to create
 unified views of enterprise data regardless of the data1s native source.
     "Executives increasingly see as much as 75 percent of their application
 development efforts consumed by data integration problems," said
 Dr. Dina Bitton, President and CEO of Callixa. "Callixa's Integration Server
 can help businesses dramatically reduce the time, expense and difficulties
 associated with integrating enterprise systems.  The combination of Callixa's
 technology and DMR Consulting1s position as a leader in advising global
 businesses and implementing cutting-edge enterprise systems will deliver
 valuable integration solutions for our mutual clients."
     Callixa's Integration Server is a standardized data integration solution
 that is reusable for all applications.  This new approach, Enterprise
 Information Integration (EII) helps companies better leverage their data
 assets and dramatically reduces the time and cost of integration and
 application development.
