iWay Software Unveils Enterprise Information Management Solution

New Offerings for Data Quality and Master Data Management Reduce Total Cost of Enterprise Information Management Challenge

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 18, 2009) - iWay Software, an Information Builders division and an innovator of enterprise integration solutions, today announced the immediate availability of a new iWay Enterprise Information Management (EIM) Suite, which includes iWay's new Data Quality Center (DQC) and Master Data Center (MDC) products. Designed to provide complete business visibility with speed and accuracy, the suite lowers the total cost of information management by addressing enterprise information needs in a single platform with reusable services.

Information Management has evolved over the years from strictly batch-oriented Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) processes building data warehouses and data marts, into complete end-to-end business process supporting solutions that rely on incorporating batch and real-time, internal systems and external systems, structured and unstructured data, typical reporting and dashboards plus real time event driven reporting, dashboards, and alerts.

With these challenges in mind, the EIM suite contains all of the necessary components to meet today's demanding requirements. Built around the core strength of iWay Service Manager, the suite uses the industry-leading connectivity options of the iWay Universal Adapter Suite to provide:

--  Integrated content -- federated data, data warehouse, files, queues,
    documents, e-mail, and ERP/CRM
--  Support for low- and medium-latency events, transactions, and batch-
    oriented integration
--  Integrated ETL, event capture, and change data capture
--  Integrated data-quality firewall and master data management
--  Ability to enrich and feed business events and data extracts to
    enterprise search engines
--  Enablement of real-time dashboards, scoring, and analytics

The two new products in the suite, iWay DQC and iWay MDC, are delivered in a single integration platform for real-time and batch integration. iWay DQC is designed not only to evaluate, monitor, and manage data quality in different information systems, but also to prevent incorrect data from entering these systems in the first place. iWay MDC enables organizations to consolidate millions of records according to easily defined business rules, making unified and validated master data instantly available to a wide range of enterprise applications, such as ERP, CRM, self-serve portals, analytical tools, data warehouses, and other internal systems.

"iWay Software is all about making the difficult easy," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "The iWay EIM suite delivers rich functionality and easy implementation at a tremendous value. By leveraging modern platforms and code-optimization techniques, this solution requires a significantly lower initial investment."

In addition to the EIM Suite, iWay offers Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business Process Automation (BPA) suites that also leverage iWay's Universal Adapter Suite and integration server and are fully customizable for a variety of enterprise needs. These standards-based suites provide comprehensive end-to-end integration from any sources outside the enterprise down to the individual applications themselves. iWay Software's offerings support any information type, latency, and integration style.
