iWay Software Positioned in Visionaries Quadrant in New Analyst Report on Data Integration

iWay Evaluated for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 15, 2007) - iWay Software, an Information Builders company and an innovator of enterprise integration solutions, today announced that Gartner has placed the company in the Visionaries Quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools, 2007" report.

According to the Gartner report, "in order to emphasize the need to address a range of data delivery styles, metadata management strength, and other technical requirements of enterprise-wide data integration activities, the 'Ability to Execute' criteria in the data-integration tools market includes a strong emphasis on product capabilities." In Gartner's view, "the data integration-tools market comprises vendors that offer software products to enable the construction and implementation of data access and delivery infrastructure for a variety of data integration scenarios. 'Visionaries' are defined as vendors that 'have a solid understanding of the key market trends and a position that is well-aligned with current demand.'"

"The hallmark of iWay Software is its simplicity, which is based on the assembly and configuration of off-the-shelf components. This simplicity enables companies to achieve rapid data integration without lengthy custom coding or expensive systems overhaul, and to implement mission critical applications without costly delays," said J.T. Taylor, CTO of iWay Software. "We think Gartner's placement of iWay in the Visionaries Quadrant validates our vision and strategy for meeting the customer demands of short learning curves, and low-risk, low-cost implementations."
