January 28, 2008 – Coradiant, Inc., the leading provider of equipment used to manage and troubleshoot Web applications, and Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM), the leading global service provider for accelerating content and applications online, today announced they are teaming together to provide an interoperable solution to pinpoint and eliminate Internet-related application performance bottlenecks.

IT departments must be able to deliver fast, consistent and reliable application performance to end users located anywhere in the world. Coradiant and Akamai are collaborating to deliver an integrated solution designed to provide IT departments the visibility and control needed to ensure increased application adoption for greater productivity.

Coradiant’s TrueSight™ products are used by organizations to gain full visibility into the enterprise user experience and to identify and diagnose application performance problems. Akamai’s Web Application Accelerator™ and IP Application Accelerator™ services are used by enterprises to leverage Akamai’s globally distributed platform for fast and reliable application delivery.

Phase-Forward, the leading provider of integrated data management solutions for clinical trials and drug safety, understands the complexity of always delivering mission-critical web applications. “Our customers expect reliable, accelerated performance from our InForm™ hosted integrated trial management (ITM) service – even in areas of the world where Internet performance is less dependable,” said Rich Deyermond, Phase Forward Vice President of Global Customer Care. “We need the ability to monitor, analyze and ensure optimal global performance. Coradiant’s TrueSight provides us with quantitative, real-time metrics about our customers’ end-to-end experience. Akamai’s IP Application Accelerator service gives us increased and reliable performance, especially in the more remote areas of the world. The collaboration between these two industry leaders for an interoperable solution fills an important customer need.”

“Our customers depend on Coradiant products for detailed analysis of the end-user experience of Web applications,” said Ali Hedayati, senior vice president of Coradiant. “With this partnership, they can leverage Akamai’s Web and IP Application Accelerator services while maintaining full user visibility.”

“Today’s enterprises require a deep understanding of application health and its effect on real users so that unreliable and slow performance can be remedied,” said Willie M. Tejada, vice president for Akamai Application Acceleration. “Through this partnership, our joint customers can realize the inherent benefits of their online business processes.”

Coradiant’s TrueSight product family captures and securely stores all data from every web visit from every web user. User-data, combined with advanced tools and visualizations, help enable IT departments best troubleshoot web problems, ensure quality customer service levels and clearly see how any changes impact users.

Akamai’s Web Application Accelerator and IP Application Accelerator services leverage Akamai’s globally-deployed platform – comprising approximately 28,000 servers in 70 countries – to deliver consistent, improved application performance for enterprise customers.
