Ultramatics Wins IBM PartnerWorld Beacon Award for Innovation

Company Chosen for Excellence in Deploying IBM WebSphere® Services Oriented Architecture Solutions for Some of the Largest IBM Installations in North America

ST. LOUIS, MO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2007 -- IBM PARTNERWORLD -- Ultramatics, a leading technology integrator specializing in services oriented architecture (SOA) solutions, today received IBM's prestigious Beacon Award during the IBM PartnerWorld event held here this week. More than 650 IT solution providers worldwide competed for top spots in 38 technology categories. Winners, selected by a panel of leading industry journalists, analysts and IBM executives, were recognized for their ingenuity, innovation, customer satisfaction and outstanding achievements in delivering on-demand business solutions. Ultramatics won IBM's "Best WebSphere® Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) Solution" category.

The company boasts nearly 20 different IBM certifications and a solid history of success at deploying increasingly complex SOA solutions. Most recently, Ultramatics' specialization and practical experience with IBM solutions enabled significant and widespread improvements for a large maritime operation looking to modernize their legacy application systems. One early benefit of the SOA implementation -- among North America's largest in 2006 -- was a reduction, by at least half, of the usual time and costs incurred in tying new, third-party applications into the client's core infrastructure. The Ultramatics' UltraStart Business Solution helped its customer save $225,000 over previous practices while improving its efficiency and productivity.

Judges remarked that this and similar large-scale, complex implementations validated that Ultramatics "was able to demonstrate a substantial and rapid ROI to customers in both real dollars and additional benefits in freed resources that can be focused on other business needs."

"Ultramatics has worked closely with IBM and its Business Partners to provide clients with innovative solutions that clearly solve real business issues," said Ravi Marwaha, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners. "Ultramatics has set the standard for business excellence by delivering unique solutions as well as high customer satisfaction."

"SOA provides the best promise yet for aligning IT solutions with business needs and achieving business flexibility," said Saru Seshadri, Ultramatics president and chief executive officer. "Our suite of UltraStart Business Solutions provides a comprehensive and proven approach to delivering SOA solutions by combining specific vertical industry knowledge with best practices and innovative technology. The UltraStart approach to SOA has resulted in successful mission-critical solutions strongly attested to by our customers. Winning the 2007 Beacon Award from IBM further underscores the power of our services and the experience of our team."
