IT Outsourcing Firm Selects Skyway SOA Platform

TAMPA, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2006 -- Skyway Software, the award winning provider of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) design and delivery solutions announced today that VietSoftware is now a Certified Skyway Software Channel Partner. VietSoftware is a leading provider of IT consulting, outsourcing and development services to major enterprises in Vietnam. Through this partnership, VietSoftware will offer its customers the Skyway SOA solution, a platform that builds, governs and deploys Web services across multiple platforms from any type of data source. Unique to the Skyway SOA Platform is its ability to build services from the ground up, a capability that results in projects being completed at unprecedented speeds and savings. This ability of the Skyway SOA Platform to accelerate solution delivery is critical to reducing application backlog issues, a top reason why most of VietSoftware clients are using their outsourcing services.

VietSoftware discovered Skyway Software through their outsourcing customer British American Tobacco (BAT), a $45 billion powerhouse. BAT has been using Skyway Software as its SOA Platform since 2004. Gavin Targonski, Global System Architect of BAT states, "BAT has recognized the risks of not factoring SOA into our future architecture upfront. By deploying Skyway Software now we are saving money immediately and improving productivity while opening the way for a head start on enterprise adoption of SOA."

The impressive client roster of VietSoftware includes IBM, Design Reactor, Toyota, and Fujitsu which keeps their more than 200 employee staff very busy. Le Xuan Hai, CTO at VietSoftware, states, "It is not often that within just a few months of trying a download eval that an IT consulting company can quickly proceed with confidence in training and certification and even on-site practice with its development team. But that's how it worked with Skyway Software. The Skyway SOA Platform offers a set of solutions that not only increase IT productivity within hours, but wraps all that increased productivity up into an SOA infrastructure. This advantage of developing applications cheaper and faster is the edge all outsourcers are looking for; but most importantly, our clients will be benefiting from this advantage."

"It is an honor to add VietSoftware to our customer and strategic partner list. When consultants like VietSoftware find new technology to help service their client base faster, it is a win for all parties. The Skyway SOA Platform provides the ability to not only quickly develop applications and services, but also enables the distribution and management of services critical to offshore agencies," adds David Precopio, vice president of product management and marketing at Skyway Software.
