This strategic alliance will both significantly increase the availability of Kabira®’s market-leading transaction processing solutions and leverage Bull’s world class sales, service and support teams throughout Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. Kabira and Bull are expanding a successful teaming relationship which led the companies to win major accounts in Europe. As evidence of Bull’s commitment to Kabira’s software, Bull established a competence center that provides dedicated resources to accelerate the training and the expertise of Bull’s technical and sales teams with Kabira products. This competency will enable Bull to remarket Kabira’s products in the Telecom and Payments markets more aggressively on a global basis Under the new partnership agreement, Kabira and Bull plan to develop and implement joint marketing events to generate new revenue opportunities. In particular, Kabira and Bull are jointly exhibiting at the 3G Africacom conference and exhibition, the leading Pan-African event for mobile, broadband and satellite communications taking place November 21-22, 2007 in Cape Town, South Africa. “Our key challenge as an industry innovator is to integrate and anticipate the requirements of the Telecom market. Bull solutions based on Kabira applications provide a quick integration of new services, shorten time to revenue and reduce the operators' costs,” said Jean-François Leprince-Ringuet, General Manager Telecommunications & Media at Bull. “This partnership is meant to boost Bull’s strong business dynamic within emerging markets while drawing on Bull’s worldwide presence.” “Bull has been a valued Kabira partner for many years,” said Chris Clabaugh, Vice President of Business Development at Kabira. “We have deployed innovative solutions in both smaller organisations as well as large enterprises handling millions of subscribers.
