OR YEHUDA, Israel, Feb. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (Nasdaq: MGIC), a global provider of cloud and on-premise enabled application platforms and business integration solutions, today announced that Clarion Events, one of the UK's leading exhibition and event organisers, chose Magic Software's iBOLT to extend the life of its System i and JD Edwards environment while rolling out a new Windows-based CRM tool.
Clarion Events required a single integration technology that would extend the life of JD Edwards on System i, enable simple data integration with a brand new Windows-based corporate CRM system (FCPRO), and allow smooth and quick data integration from newly acquired businesses and subsidiaries into a centralised JD Edwards environment, all without having to make changes to its own current systems infrastructure.
Clarion Events selected iBOLT because of its rapid development and integration capabilities, multi-platform functionality, easy visual mapping, strong return on investment, low total cost of ownership, and its tight interface to the IBM System i platform.
"Having weighed up our options, iBOLT really was the only solution in the market that protected our existing investment while allowing us to continue to grow," said Alexis Cheshire, IT Director at Clarion Events.
