Integration Applications



Apr 12, 2001, 01:00 ET from iWay Software

    NEW YORK, April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- iWay Software, an Information Builders
 company and a market leader in middleware that accelerates e-business
 initiatives through the rapid integration of complex back-office systems,
 announced today in-market seminars in 16 major North American cities to
 address the growing need for effective integration across the enterprise and
 with outdated legacy systems.  The seminars will be co-hosted by iWay Software
 and IBM.
     These seminars will educate business and IT managers on how to implement
 e-business strategies by integrating their enterprise information assets into
 efficient e-business processes, especially those deployed on Web browsers and
 wireless devices.  The presentation will explore specific e-business
 integration technologies developed by iWay Software leveraging IBM technology.
 The seminar tour began on April 4 in St. Louis and will travel to 16 cities
 across North America.
     "e-Business connotes streamlining processes through technology," said John
 Senor, president of iWay Software.  "Specific business goals vary, from
 finding new customers to automating the supply chain, but the technical
 challenge always includes linking many disparate IT assets into a common
 business process.  That's not easy, especially given the old, complex systems
 that most established enterprises use.  When IT architects and managers
 understand the costs and benefits of integration, they create better
 businesses.  iWay Software will help IT leaders to make informed decisions
 about end-to-end enterprise integration, from the browser or mobile device all
 the way back to complex back-office systems."
     Three sessions will comprise the seminar.  Business and IT managers
 attending the sessions will learn:
 
     -- How to create total e-business solutions using enterprise integration
        technologies like iWay Software's Enterprise Integration Suite
        leveraging IBM WebSphere* software, MQSeries*, and MQSeries Integrator
     -- How iWay Software's integration solutions work effectively with IBM's
        WebSphere software for enterprise connectivity and streamlined business
        processes
     -- How mobile integration applications can be connected to the enterprise
        in order to aid the increasingly mobile workforce
 
     The seminar tour includes to St. Louis; Detroit; Toronto; Minneapolis;
 Washington, DC; Philadelphia; New York; Chicago; Cincinnati; Boston; Denver;
 Dallas; Houston; Seattle; San Francisco; Los Angeles; and Somerset, NJ.  For
