Bretten, Germany - 10 November 2010

SEEBURGER AG announced today that it has been positioned in the Visionaries quadrant in Gartner's just-published Magic Quadrant* titled, "Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic Application Integration Projects," an analysis of application integration infrastructure vendors. The Magic Quadrant examines vendors whose products provide features that address the needs of systematic application-to-application (A2A), business-to-business (B2B) and cloud-based application integration projects.

SEEBURGER has focused exclusively on the business and application integration market since its founding in 1986. More than 8,200 customers rely on SEEBURGER products and services to meet their business and application integration needs, including organizations in the automotive, consumer packaged goods and retail sectors as well as those in the aerospace/defense, chemicals, energy/utilities, finance, insurance, manufacturing, paper, pharmaceuticals/healthcare, and high-tech/telecommunications industries.

SEEBURGER's Business Integration Suite (BIS) provides customers with easy-to-use and intuitive integration capabilities that meet the expectations of any systematic application integration project. The suite supports any kind of integration project with comprehensive functionalities around B2B, A2A and cloud integration.

SEEBURGER BIS not only automates trading relationships throughout the supply chain to reduce administrative costs and accelerate business processes, but also enables internal application integration through comprehensive ERP system integration capabilities and specific solution extensions. Solution extensions provide end-to-end monitoring of B2B processes for end users.

"We believe that our inclusion in the Visionary quadrant for systematic application integration projects offers a useful guide for organizations that are searching for a provider to automate collaboration with their trading partners and internal systems," said Rohit Khanna, EVP of Global Strategy and Corporate Communications for SEEBURGER. "Our Business Integration Suite has proven to be a robust and complete platform in thousands of integration deployments around the world."

Criteria for Inclusion

The new Magic Quadrant evaluates application infrastructure vendors who provide:

- Classic integration services - Common services for data consistency, multistep processes and composite application integration, including messaging, bulk data movement (for example, managed file transfer [MFT]), transformation, flow management, adapters and process integration packs (PIPs).
- Multienterprise integration support - Functionality that supports conveying business transactions electronically between any two companies among members of a B2B community (such features also have relevance in large organizations - for example, between different divisions) or between on-premises and cloud-based applications.
- Development and deployment environment - A graphical environment for specifying the interfaces and technologies required to implement data consistency and multistep process styles of integration.
- Management - System monitoring and management features that keep IT infrastructures running at peak efficiency at all times by enabling the remote monitoring and management of distributed applications, services and information sources, and by enabling the automated resolution of predefined conditions and events.

Inclusion is also based on Gartner's assessment of a vendor's completeness of vision and ability to execute.
