MITEM and Staffware Partner to Accelerate the Delivery of End-to-End
Business Process Management

Joint software solution combines process integration with broad legacy connectivity

MENLO PARK, CA and MAIDENHEAD, UK – December 20, 2002 - MITEM Corporation, a leading provider of legacy integration software and eBusiness solutions and Staffware plc, the founder and global leader of Business Process Management, today announced they have entered into a joint marketing agreement. Organizations that adopt the MITEM/Staffware platform will enable business process integration and automation across their enterprise, including the composition and orchestration of enterprise-class web services.

The Staffware Process Suite provides a complete set of tools to transform and streamline the processes and tasks of an enterprise. MitemView is the industry’s proven solution for creating real-time programmatic interfaces to myriad legacy systems in a non-invasive way. Together the products represent a best-of-breed solution that will allow organizations to reduce their operational expenses and become more agile for the future.

“With so many industries facing a squeeze on their operating margins, it has never been more important to reduce costs and extract value from existing systems and processes,” states Martin Fincham, vice president of marketing for MITEM. “The real-time enterprise concept is driving market demand for integration software that supports rich human interaction and deep application connectivity. MITEM and Staffware are well positioned to deliver superior BPM solutions.”

"The ability to combine real-time legacy application integration with automated business process execution and management delivers tangible business benefits," said Jon Pyke, Staffware’s Chief Technology Officer, "MITEM’s proven technology enables us to extend our existing integration capabilities with a universal adapter that extends the life and usefulness of legacy applications."

Legacy applications running on mainframe and midrange systems are a formidable barrier to true enterprise-wide business process integration. MITEM estimates that there are more than 300,000 custom applications isolated on the other side of this divide. These systems rarely have documented or open interfaces, making them painfully difficult to integrate. Systems are not being retired at the pace previously thought, so finding a fast and effective way to integrate and extend them has become the more practical strategy.

“BPM is redefining the way we construct systems to drive process efficiencies. New business flows invariably need to trigger existing transactions at execution time." said Jim Sinur, vice president and research area director with research firm Gartner Inc. "In today's economy, end-to-end rules powered BPM functionality is absolutely essential for enabling agility and flexibility. BPM, a rules engine and integration software together help realize Gartner's concept of the real-time enterprise.”
