Bluenog Introduces Industry's First Integrated Suite of Enterprise CMS, Portal, and BI Software

Bluenog ICE's Tight Integration Provides Wide Array of Benefits; Integrated Collaborative Environment Leverages Open Source, Web 2.0 Technologies

PISCATAWAY, NJ--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - Bluenog, an enterprise software and solutions company, today announced the immediate availability of Bluenog ICE 4.0, the industry's first integrated suite of content management (ECM or CMS), portal, and business intelligence (BI) software. Bluenog ICE is an "Integrated Collaborative Environment" that leverages Web 2.0 technologies. The suite's tight integration eliminates application silos, reduces total cost of ownership, and accelerates application development. Ready integration with third-party software, including other vendors' ECM, portal, and BI offerings, further reduces cost and increases deployment flexibility. Bluenog ICE is based on open source software, and customers receive the suite's source code. More information about Bluenog ICE is available at www.bluenog.com.

Enterprises Benefit from Tight Integration

Bluenog ICE's tight integration of ECM, portal, and BI functionality frees IT organizations from the burden of selecting and manually integrating stand-alone offerings from separate vendors and later maintaining the integration and coordinating the vendors' technical support services. This dramatically reduces the time, cost, and risk of developing, deploying, and managing the software. The integration also enables security, administration, and deployment to be shared across the suite's three components, increasing data security and user convenience.

Bluenog ICE: an Integrated Collaborative Environment

Bluenog ICE consists of three modules:

--  Bluenog CMS: an enterprise content management (ECM) system that
    securely creates, manages, publishes, and repurposes a wide range of
    content for use on the Web, in print, and by enterprise applications
--  Bluenog RichPortal: a rich Internet application (RIA) portal
    development environment that provides secure access to dynamic content,
    reporting functionality, and enterprise applications via a highly
    customizable and interactive user interface
--  Bluenog BI: a powerful tool that enables non-technical users to
    securely design, view, distribute, and interact with reports based on data
    stored throughout the enterprise
    

Seamless Enterprise-Wide Integration

Bluenog ICE runs on popular application servers, including Glassfish, JBoss, Tomcat, and WebLogic, as well as popular database servers, including DB2, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server. Enterprise applications, such as Oracle Financials, SAP, and Banner, are also supported. Bluenog ICE can also work seamlessly with third-party CMS, portal, and BI offerings, increasing deployment flexibility and protecting customers' previous IT investments. Bluenog ICE may be used with the most popular development frameworks, including J2EE, PHP, PERL, and other scripting languages.

"Nearly every enterprise requires CMS, portal, and BI capabilities, and tightly integrating this functionality delivers compelling benefits," said Suresh Kuppusamy, chief executive officer, Bluenog. "Bluenog ICE's pre-built integration eliminates the time, cost and risk of integrating separate vendors' CMS, portal, and BI software and provides other advantages, such as unified security, administration, and deployment."

Pricing and Availability

Bluenog ICE is available immediately and costs significantly less than licensing and integrating separate CMS, portal, and BI products. All Bluenog products are available via annual subscriptions and are priced per-server rather than per-CPU or per-user, simplifying license administration and capacity planning. Bluenog ICE is priced at $25,000 per server per year.
