Sonic Software promotes Hub Vandervoort to Chief Technology Officer

BEDFORD, Mass. November 30, 2005 Sonic Software, the inventor and leading provider of the enterprise service bus (ESB), and an operating unit of Progress Software Corporation (Nasdaq: PRGS), today announced that Hub Vandervoort has been promoted to Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Sonic Software. As CTO, Vandervoort will be responsible for incorporating market and customer requirements into the industry leading ESB-based Sonic SOA Suite", and evangelising Sonic's leading-edge developments in the enterprise service bus (ESB) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure market. Vandervoort also works closely with Progress Software office of the CTO to coordinate Sonic strategy across the Progress operating units.

Anyone who's heard Hub talk about the enterprise service bus (ESB) or distributed computing in general knows that he has a passion and expertise that few can match, said Greg O'Connor, president of Sonic Software. In addition to his technical prowess, Hub brings insightful business acumen and uncompromising integrity to the job.

Vandervoort previously held the position of vice president of strategic services for Sonic. Over the last four years, he has built up a highly successful technical services group to enable Sonic customers and partners to achieve rapid results with Sonic technology. In the last year, Vandervoort has worked closely with Sonic's financial services clients to establish Sonic ESB® as the platform of choice for organisations deploying extended trading operations and real-time securities master integration based on SOA.

Vandervoort has over twenty years experience as an entrepreneur, consultant and senior technology executive in the networking, communications software and Internet industries. Prior to joining Sonic, Vandervoort co-founded and managed several successful start-up ventures.

The enterprise service bus market is about to experience significant expansion as more enterprises roll out SOA beyond their pilot projects, said Hub Vandervoort, CTO of Sonic Software. I'm excited to help guide product and implementation strategy for Sonic Software as we enable customers to successfully adopt SOA, and maintain Sonic's position as the ESB market leader.
