Latest version of Vitria:BusinessWare integration platform now supports Linux, Windows 2003 and Solaris 9 for even greater flexibility and choice in OS support

MAIDENHEAD, Berks. April 1, 2004 – Vitria (Nasdaq: VITR), a leading provider of business process integration solutions, today announced the latest release of its award-winning business integration platform, Vitria:BusinessWare™ 4.2, now featuring expanded platform support for Linux, Windows 2003 and Solaris 9. With enhanced flexibility and choice of OS support, customers can now achieve greater return on investment (ROI) from Vitria solutions by leveraging the cost advantages of Linux-based systems, or the latest version of popular Windows and UNIX operating systems.

Initially driven by Internet infrastructure and high performance technical computing, Linux is taking its place as a viable option for enterprise computing. Linux servers can be significantly less expensive than traditional UNIX-based servers. In several companies, UNIX servers are being consolidated and complemented by lower cost Linux servers.

“Several trends have become evident in the financial services marketplace over the last few months,” said Tim Lind, senior analyst in the Investment Management practice at TowerGroup. “Linux continues to gain popularity within the US securities industry, with large brokerage firms leading the charge. All of them seek more flexibility and cost-savings to leverage existing IT infrastructure without sacrificing the performance required of their mission-critical systems.”

Building on the 2003 Business Integration Journal “Product of the Year”, Vitria:BusinessWare 4.2 refinements provide more flexibility, improved process effectiveness and efficiency and capabilities for faster implementation of integration projects. Customers will realize cost savings from OS choice, administrative cost reduction and performance monitoring improvements.

“As enterprise server technology evolves, Vitria:BusinessWare continues to take advantage of the latest technologies to allow our customers to achieve superior business outcomes through business process integration,” said Dale Skeen, chief technology officer, Vitria. “Linux penetration continues to expand due to its performance, scalability and cost of ownership benefits.
