DataMirror Expands Partnership with Eucalypt Software Partners to Strengthen Enterprise Application Integration Solutions

TORONTO, ON. and SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 7, 2005) - DataMirror® (NASDAQ:DMCX - News; TSX:DMC - News) today announced the expansion of its partnership with Australian software developer and integration specialist, Eucalypt Software Partners (Eucalypt), to provide strengthened enterprise application solutions to customers undertaking integration projects. The partnership leverages solutions built upon DataMirror Integration Suite and Eucalypt's experience with implementing enterprise software solutions.

Eucalypt's second generation interface development methodology toolset, known as The Right Approach (TRA), supports direct synchronization with DataMirror Integration Suite to reduce programming costs by eliminating the need for design components to be re-keyed in the development phase of a project. Completed interface and database definitions can be reverse engineered out of an Integration Suite repository and merged into existing, or new, TRA documents at the end of a maintenance coding cycle.

"DataMirror is pleased to be working with Eucalypt to deliver low-risk, flexible technology that guarantees the delivery of reliable information across all of the systems that create and store data," said Nigel Stokes, CEO, DataMirror. "Working with Eucalypt to develop integration and data warehousing solutions reinforces DataMirror's commitment to help organizations make business decisions with the best available information."

The Right Approach has been successfully deployed at a number of key DataMirror customer sites, including the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) where TRA methodology was used to design and document the conversion interfaces for the student system migration project.

In partnering with DataMirror, Eucalypt benefits from DataMirror's established global customer base of more than 2,000 customers and from more than ten years of leadership in the real-time data integration software solution space. In return, Eucalypt brings more than nine years of enterprise software integration experience to the partnership along with and extensive knowledge of DataMirror solutions.

"Eucalypt has been developing add-on technology to the DataMirror Integration Suite for more than five years now. The methodology provides a framework for the planning, analysis, design and deployment phases of an integration project through an encapsulation of sound software engineering principles." said Martin Flanagan, Chief Technology Officer at Eucalypt Software Partners. "Through implementing The Right Approach, users can reduce the uncertainty often associated with the adoption of a new integration tool and achieve a result of the highest quality sooner."
