Ericom Software and Indus Consultancy Services Team To Meet Growing Demand For Legacy System Integration

Indus Consultancy Services & Ericom hold joint seminar May 22 & June 19 2002 Extending Legacy Systems to the Web and Wireless World

Closter, NJ (April 25, 2002) - Ericom® Software, Inc., and Indus Consultancy Services today announced an agreement under which Indus Consultancy Services will join the Ericom Partner Program. Under the agreement, Indus Consultancy Services will provide Ericom software solutions to companies across a broad range of industries to integrate legacy systems with web and wireless based applications. Indus joins Ericom's growing list of System Integrator Partners that are certified to sell, implement, train and support PowerTerm Host Publisher.

The two organizations have agreed to collaborate on marketing and sales programs, and to train Indus professionals to identify and implement legacy application integration solutions focusing on IBM Mainframe, IBM AS/400, UNIX, HP 3000 and 9000, VAX/VMS, Alpha/OpenVMS, Tru64 UNIX, Tandem, SCO, and Data General.

"This partnership enables Indus to significantly expand the capabilities of our application integration solutions,'' said Shekar Gunaseharan, President of Indus Consultancy Services. "We can now deliver truly differentiated web applications and integration solutions using Ericom's legacy integration and host publisher products."

Research analyst IDC forecasts the enterprise application integration (EAI) market will grow over 30% annually, reaching nearly $21 billion in 2005.

"We're very pleased to work with Indus Consultancy Services in building solutions based on the PowerTerm Host Publisher technology, which will enable Indus to deliver powerful web and wireless solutions to its clients," said Mark Friedberg, Ericom Vice President of Business Development. "Our collaboration will broaden the options available to organizations seeking best-of-breed solutions from a world-class professional services firm."

The strategic agreement formalizes a number of marketing efforts already in place and builds on Ericom's commitment in supporting its system integrator and OEM partners.

PowerTerm Host Publisher is an application that allows customers to integrate the most complete range of legacy mission critical applications with the web and wireless world as well as other strategic applications. This is all done with zero changes to those existing applications and in a fraction of the time it normally takes to deploy a new solution. PowerTerm Host Publisher helps companies to reduce development times, increase productivity, and improve service levels through faster deployment times. And because PowerTerm Host Publisher leverages the native legacy interface, training costs are significantly reduced.
