Pervasive Software Inc., a global value leader in data infrastructure software, unveiled a new generation of data and business integration products designed to grow and scale for the diverse integration needs of mid-size businesses and departments of large enterprises. Offering the industry's best combination of performance, flexibility and low total cost of ownership (TCO), the new product offerings further Pervasive's mission to provide high-value, low-TCO data infrastructure software products that enable customers to manage, integrate, analyze and secure mission-critical data.

"Pervasive understands its market and clearly listens to its customers," said Mac Cutchins, chief executive officer of Intek Integration Technologies, Inc. "As a long-standing Pervasive customer, Intek is pleased to see Pervasive extend its offerings into products that accelerate time to value and low TCO around data and application integration technologies. Pervasive is an agile and flexible strategic IT business partner whose affordable solutions continue to deliver rapid time to value for our global customers including PETCO, Hitachi and Matsushita." Intek's proprietary turnkey warehouse management and control system, Warehouse Librarian, is built on the Pervasive.SQL database and employs Pervasive technology to seamlessly integrate existing business systems (such as SAP R/3) into new warehouse management systems for a number of its customers.

Thousands of businesses worldwide rely on Pervasive data infrastructure products to capitalize on their most important asset - data. The newly announced integration products represent the first product packages built on the technology acquired in 2003 from Data Junction Corporation and augment the company's industry-leading low-TCO data management software line, which includes the Pervasive.SQL database engine that has more than 5.4 million server seats deployed in more than 150 countries. Pervasive software products are specifically designed for mid-size businesses and departments of large enterprises, where high performance, flexibility and low TCO are paramount.

"Today's mid-size business is faced with increased competition, globalization and escalating IT integration costs. In response to these pressures, companies need to quickly integrate application packages to each other, to existing legacy applications, to new Web applications and to the partner network," said Jon Derome, director of business applications and commerce at the Yankee Group. "The 'big-bang' application integration projects seldom deliver the single, unified systems they promise. These projects fail because they attempt to apply a static solution to IT systems that inevitably change. The mid-market needs more pragmatic integration solutions that meet immediate business needs and can scale to accommodate future requirements."

Pervasive helps reduce the complexity, costs and risks associated with traditional labor-intensive integration methods by providing a versatile and configurable integration architecture for rapid implementation and ease of use. This flexibility enables mid-sized businesses and departments of large enterprises to create and fine-tune their solutions for frequently changing business needs and requirements. Pervasive's integration products, which feature a comprehensive set of easy-to-use visual design tools to rapidly build and test integration processes, regardless of size and complexity, across hundreds of data formats and applications within and outside of the enterprise, include:

·        Pervasive Business Integrator - integrates multiple applications within or across organizations for real-time, event-driven integration

·        Pervasive Data Integrator - aggregates and integrates data quickly and cost-effectively for high volume, continuous processing

·        Data Junction Migration Toolkit - provides a simple, flexible and cost-effective way to migrate data between old and new applications or data stores.

These products, which will form the foundation of Pervasive's integration offering, are built on technology acquired in December 2003 from Data Junction Corporation, an industry-leading pioneer in the integration software marketplace.
