Vulcan Solutions partner with Idiom Software to provide their Business Rules Engine

Galway, Ireland, Monday 22nd August 2005.

Vulcan Solutions, a leading provider of software solutions to the financial services sector, announced today that it has partnered with Idiom Software to provide their Business Rules Engine in Ireland and the UK.

Based in Auckland New Zealand, Idiom Software was established in 2001 to develop a system that would deliver real agility to dynamic companies. The result was the IDIOM Decision Suite, a unique Business Rules Engine that enables companies to change the rules in their existing software systems without writing any programming code. Using the IDIOM approach, changes to business systems are simple, safe and transparent.

Speaking about this initiative, Tony Johnstone, Managing Director of Vulcan Solutions said, "We are excited by the potential of Business Rules Engine technology. This technology can be applied to rules for terms and conditions, underwriting, pricing, internal and external regulations, and almost every aspect of your business. Rules, more than data or process, are what defines the essence of your business operation, because rules are the means for applying knowledge to data."

IDIOM is a Business Rules Engine that enables business experts to easily create, test and maintain the application logic that makes a company unique and competitive. Idiom Software and their partners have delivered solutions based on IDIOM to many sectors, including Financial Services, Health, Logistics, Utilities, and Government. Idiom made its debut on Gartner’s Business Rules Engine Magic Quadrant earlier this year.

Mark Norton, CEO of Idiom Software, welcomed the partnership saying, "We are delighted to have Vulcan Solutions as a partner and we look forward to a very successful relationship with them. From the outset, we were impressed by their extensive expertise in the development and integration of enterprise solutions. It helps that we are totally aligned in our views of where software technology is going."

Vulcan Solutions is providing IDIOM as a stand-alone solution that is easily integrated with existing software systems. Vulcan Solutions will sell the IDIOM system in Ireland and the UK and provide a range of associated services including integration, education, support and consultancy.

Cian McNamara, General Manager of Vulcan Solutions commented, "We believe we are bringing the right application to the market at the right time. In a business environment that is competitive and dynamic, IDIOM delivers the business agility that is fundamental to the success of any enterprise. Any business or function that has complex business rules that change frequently will benefit from a system like IDIOM."

Vulcan Solutions is an Irish-owned software solutions company that was established in 1989. Their client list includes leading insurance companies, banks and brands in the US, UK and Ireland. Customers in Ireland include Hibernian Direct, One Direct, CitiFinancial, Bank of Ireland and the Irish League of Credit Unions.
