Nexaweb Launches Enterprise Web 2.0 Partner Program for Independent Software Vendors and Original Equipment Manufacturers

New Program Offers ISVs and OEMs a Market-Leading Enterprise Web 2.0 Platform and Expert Services Team Focused on Developing and Deploying Mission-Critical Applications Over the Web

BURLINGTON, MA and TOKYO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2007 -- Nexaweb Technologies, Inc., provider of the leading standards-based platform for building and deploying Enterprise Web 2.0 (EW2.0) applications, today unveiled a new ISV and OEM partner program.

Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) are under intense pressure from customers and competitors to give their applications a more "user-friendly, Web-like" interface and to find new, less-expensive, more aggressive global sales and distribution methods. Customers are looking to improve end-user productivity and reduce the cost of owning software with a self-service solution that doesn't require client-side software. Likewise, overall market demands for "customized solutions" means ISVs and OEMs need an application framework that enables them to quickly redesign application UIs to support new or enhanced business processes and expand into new markets.

"Nexaweb's capabilities help to demonstrate the emerging market demand for enterprise-class Internet applications across major industry sectors," said Chris Gahagan, senior vice president, software group at EMC Corporation. "EMC has deployed business-critical applications that take advantage of Nexaweb's Enterprise Web 2.0 technology to more than 4,000 enterprises worldwide, helping them to manage, protect and unlock the value from their information on a 24x7 basis."

"The application development market is evolving from IDEs focused on imperative language (C++, Java) to offering declarative (SQL, HTML, JUnit scripting and XSLT) programming support, but the evolution won't stop there. With the move to more agile methods and a focus on reuse and assembly, IDEs will be extended further to enable the discovery and assembly of assets in a given framework (for example, WS* assets or .NET components -- a prerequisite for SOA development)."

Nexaweb's Enterprise Web 2.0 solution is a comprehensive application development and deployment framework for building enterprise-class RIA, composite, and "mashup" applications. With Nexaweb, ISV and OEM development teams can quickly and easily design, QA, deploy, and maintain Ajax and Java UIs that deliver users a rich, reliable, and secure browser-based application interface. And because application development is done in a unified declarative XML development environment (Eclipse-based IDE), minimal code re-writing is required. Only Nexaweb's Enterprise Web 2.0 framework is backed by an established methodology and reference architecture proven by leading companies such as EMC and SunGard.

With the Nexaweb Enterprise Web 2.0 solutions ISVs and OEMs can:

--  Gain Market Share & Competitive Advantage:  Bring new products to
    market faster, including Software as a Service (SaaS), and deliver
    "customer configurable" applications that can run online, offline, or
    occasionally connected
--  Increase Time to Market & Revenue:  Rapidly create "composite"
    applications that extend the value of core products that are delivered
    directly or through partners
--  Map Technology to Business Requirements:  Use the client technology
    (Ajax, Java, Flash, etc.) that best meets the usage, presentation, and data
    requirements of business applications that can run online, offline, or
    occasionally connected
--  Improve Productivity & Lower Ownership Costs:  Build applications that
    leverage existing code and use declarative XML (3 times faster than SWING)
    to deliver a centrally managed, zero-install solution that reduces network
    traffic
--  Expand Partner Eco-system:  Offer a way to rapidly integrate your
    products with partners' to deliver complete solutions
    
"Nexaweb has responded to the distinct application development requirements of ISVs and OEMs for more than seven years," said Chris Heidelberger, CEO at Nexaweb. "Our work with market leaders such as EMC and others affirms the quality of our solution and verifies the usability, delivery, and ownership benefits our partners and their customers realize with Nexaweb. As demand for rich, web-like application functionality intensifies, Nexaweb is prepared to help ISVs and OEMs compete and succeed in a highly competitive marketplace driven by product features, time-to-market, and agile delivery models."

Nexaweb ISV and OEM Partners are re-engineering next-generation solutions with Nexaweb's Enterprise Web 2.0 Platform, delivering tremendous value to their customers. Additional partner benefits include: marketing support and tools, product training, technical support and access to qualified lead pass programs.
