NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 29, 2009) - iWay Software, a division of Information Builders and an innovator of enterprise integration solutions, today announced that it has been named in the 2009 SD Times 100. Now in its seventh year, the SD Times 100 recognizes the top companies, organizations, and individuals that had the greatest impact on software development during the previous calendar year. Companies included on the list are selected by knowledge management practitioners, theorists, analysts, and vendors as well as their customers and colleagues.

iWay was recognized in the "SOA and Middleware" category, which identified companies that demonstrated leadership and innovation in the areas of service-oriented architecture (SOA) enablement and in creating enterprise middleware. iWay SOA Middleware provides everything necessary to achieve real-time, near real-time, or batch integration more quickly and easily than competing tools and the "roll your own" approach. iWay provides standard connections to more than 300 back-office systems and data sources, enabling organizations to quickly and easily leverage technologies such as IBM's WebSphere™, Microsoft's BizTalk Server™, XML, Oracle, SAP, Informatica, and Java™.

"The software development industry has always been led by innovation, and that's true even in today's challenging economic climate," said Alan Zeichick, editorial director of BZ Media's SD Times. "When choosing the 2009 SD Times 100 winners, we carefully considered each organization's products and services, reputation with enterprise development managers, and the new ideas and thought leadership that it has brought to the industry. Thanks to companies like iWay, the art of software development continues to advance at a rapid pace."

"In an environment where businesses are being told to do more with less, an integrated information infrastructure is key to success," said David Watson, vice president of iWay Software. "We've been providing our customers with the ability to do more with less for years, and being recognized for the effort is incredibly rewarding."
