iWay Application Adapter Provides State-of-the-Art Middleware Solutions for SAP Basis - and SAP Web Application Server-Based Systems

London, UK – February 25 2003 – iWay Software, an Information Builders company that accelerates business integration, today announced it has been awarded three interface certifications from SAP AG. Awarded at SAP headquarters in Walldorf, Germany, these interface certifications apply to the new iWay Application Adapter Version 5 for the following SAP integration scenarios: ALE Converter and Subsystems (CA-ALE), ALE Message Handling System (CA-AMS), and XML Communication Interface (CA-XML). These three interface certifications help guarantee valuable, rapid, cost-effective application and data integration for iWay customers.

The certified iWay Application Adapter Version 5 for SAP solutions allows organisations, integrators and other software vendors to seamlessly integrate from SAP Basis 4.0-based systems up to SAP Web Application Server 6.20-based systems with virtually any other legacy system or application on any other platform. iWay Application Adapter for SAP extracts critical business logic and data contained within SAP applications for use in the integrated enterprise, including popular standards such as J2EE and .NET and related broker environments from IBM, BEA Systems, and Microsoft.

iWay Application Adapter Version 5 qualified to be labelled with the “SAP Certified Integration” tagline because it efficiently transfers data between internal and external SAP solutions and non-SAP applications in accordance with the SAP integration technologies. This enables SAP customers to experience fast, reliable EAI implementations and attractive ROI while leveraging key enterprise SAP solutions through CA-ALE, CA-AMS, and CA-XML integration scenarios.

Facilitating the movement and interoperability of communication across SAP solutions-based and non-SAP application environments, iWay Application Adapter technology achieved three interface certifications that promote cost-effective and low-risk solutions:

• CA-ALE certification – Enhances electronic data interchange (EDI) subsystem interface with SAP Basis and SAP Web Application Server. Using direct program-to-program remote communication and transformation from non-SAP systems to SAP solution-based systems, iWay expedites the conversion, import, and export of critical intermediate documents (IDocs).

• CA-AMS certification – Rapidly bridges SAP Basis and SAP Web Application Server data exchange with other applications through pure message delivery. As an ALE Message Handler, the adapter only pushes IDoc messages without the need for conversion from one or more SAP solution-based systems.

• CA-XML certification – Eases the communication between external middleware with SAP Basis and SAP Web Application Server over the Internet using XML, HTTP, or HTTPS. iWay Application Adapter immediately transfers SAP solution specifications into XML for straight transfer into application subsystem repositories. iWay’s CA-XML-certified adapter directly receives and converts messages to be pulled or pushed into XML formats to or from SAP solution-based systems over the Internet.

“Our three SAP interface certifications for the iWay Application Adapter Version 5 for SAP solutions are the most recent evidence of iWay Software’s success in adding value for SAP solutions and the users of those solutions,” said John Senor, President of iWay Software. “These certifications demonstrate our commitment to delivering scalable, open solutions that facilitate rapid integration with SAP solution-based environments for our customers and partners.”
