Microgen Named a Visionary in Service-Oriented Architecture Applications in New Magic Quadrant

LONDON and BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - Microgen Plc (LSE: MCGN) today announced it has been named a "visionary" in Gartner's new Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)-Style Application Projects. The new Magic Quadrant report, which was published by Gartner in October 2010, analyzed and added eight application infrastructure vendors.

"Our expanding client roster continually realizes the value of Microgen Aptitude Version 3.0 software and we believe Gartner's recognition serves as further indication that Microgen Aptitude Version 3.0 is among the best offerings available in today's growing market for SOA-based solution projects," said Tom Crawford, Senior Vice President of North America, Microgen. "We aim to bring a wealth of enterprise class innovation to business process platform technology by offering transparent and business user-friendly in-database and in-memory analytics, unprecedented boost in data processing and rules performance, and SOA interaction blending new agile functionality with legacy systems."

Microgen Aptitude Version 3.0, developed to address the ever-growing demand for high levels of transaction processing performance, competitive agility and clarity within business operations, provides a scalable platform for the future: it is based on an extended Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) which enables applications to use both third-party web services and high-speed Microgen Aptitude capabilities. Launched in June 2010, Aptitude Version 3.0 further extends transaction processing capabilities to deliver unparalleled transparency, control, flexibility and collaboration between IT and business users, while bringing enhanced functionality in a single fully integrated product and a 30 percent increase in performance -- over and above the previous version's market-leading performance.
