In addition, its UK operations ended 2004 with a growth rate of 335% from 2003 to 2004.

Commenting on the increasing global momentum of Wily Technology, the company’s President & CEO, Dick Williams, said: “In 2004, we focused on aggressive execution and realised tremendous customer success, product innovation and growth of our partner network. We see even more opportunity as an increasing number of enterprises trust their businesses to complex, composite Web applications that span multiple systems and stakeholders. In 2005, Wily Technology will continue to raise the bar in enterprise application management, providing customers greater insight into both their applications and business performance.”
