Kovair Omnibus Technology -- The Integration Bus for IT™

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2007) - Kovair Software, Inc. today announced the release of Omnibus Integration Bus for IT™ to integrate disparate IT tools from multiple vendors. With this technology Kovair establishes itself as the leading provider of a vendor independent integration hub specifically focused for Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Information Technology (IT) tools.

"The promise of vendor neutral integration technology of multiple ALM and IT tools in a transparent and streamlined fashion was unfulfilled until this release of Omnibus," said Bipin Shah, CEO and Chairman of Kovair. "CIOs of large corporations, juggling various best-of-breed tools, will find Omnibus the most prudent way to deliver significant new business values to their customers while protecting existing investments. Though there are other Integration technologies available for other industries, we believe Omnibus is the first complete solution explicitly focused on ALM and IT market segments."

Omnibus is an Integration Bus for different classes of Application Development and IT tools such as Requirements Management, Change Management, Configuration and Version Control, IDE, Test Management, Project Portfolio Management and Helpdesk Management. Being an Integration Hub or Bus, it reduces the complexity of integrations and maintenance by an order of magnitude from the point-to-point integrations. Omnibus Technology's Web Services API allows these applications running on various technology platforms to be located anywhere in the world and can work through multiple enterprise firewalls. The high level 'Tool Class' API drastically reduces the effort for creating Adapters for individual tools.

Some of the key benefits of integration using Omnibus are the augmentation of the capabilities of the third party tools with Kovair's various advanced capabilities including Process Automation and multi-Entity Relationships. Many of the ALM and IT tools that lack built-in process automation capability will now have the full power of Kovair's process automation engine and integrated data repository for synchronized management reporting and traceability.

"We have made the Omnibus architecture highly scalable and flexible to support the reality of multi-location, multi-business unit, multi-technology development processes," said Kovair Chief Technology Officer, Sky Basu. "Creation of Adapters for various popular tools, we believe, will make Omnibus one of the most connected and powerful tools ecosystems the industry has ever seen."

Omnibus is available now as part of the Kovair's flagship product, Kovair Global Lifecycle, which is a feature-rich, configurable global development and integration framework that offers a complete set of integrated tools and processes for managing the entire application lifecycle. Architected with a common user interface and a single shared repository to ease the complexities of "anytime, anywhere" development, Kovair Global Lifecycle has been adopted rapidly in market sectors where there is a critical need for automated workflow and reliable, predictable application lifecycle management processes.
