Unify Selected as Strategic Partner for Microsoft Global Seminar Series for Notes Customers

October 12, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 10, 2007 - Unify Corp. (OTCBB: UFYC), a global provider of application modernization software, today announced the expansion of its global partnership with Microsoft through its participation in an international road show for customers of IBM’s Lotus Notes product. Unify has been selected to join Microsoft’s global seminar series to educate Microsoft partners and the world’s largest IT customers about the Microsoft Notes Transition Framework, an initiative to help transition customers from a Notes-centric computing environment to the Microsoft Platform.

In 2007, Microsoft announced its commitment to help enterprise customers easily transition their email, messaging, collaboration, template-based and complex workflow-centric Lotus Notes applications to the Microsoft platform. The extensive road show is part of this continued commitment and Microsoft has invited Unify to demonstrate how its industry-leading Composer services offering can easily transition Lotus Notes applications to the Microsoft stack.

“Unify provides a migration offering that enables Microsoft customers to modernize their Lotus Notes applications and leverage the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and ASP.NET platforms to serve increasing demands from end-users,” said Todd Wille, CEO, Unify. “Unify’s Composer services offering enables the seamless migration of a custom Notes application’s user interface, security, data, business logic and workflow to the Microsoft platform without the disruption, cost or time of an expensive rewrite. This road show is a vehicle to demonstrate how worldwide enterprises can achieve like-for-like, production-to-production migration of mission-critical Lotus Notes applications in a timely and cost effective manner versus a rip and replace rewrite strategy that was previously the only alternative available.”

“As part of our Notes Transition Framework initiative, Microsoft sought partners that can provide scalable application migration services,” said Terry Birdsell, Program Lead for the Enterprise and Partner Group at Microsoft. “Our customers have the most complex IT environments in the world and they are looking to consolidate disparate platforms and make all of their enterprise applications completely interoperable. Unify is one of our key strategic partners in the migration of custom business process Lotus Notes applications to the Microsoft platform.”

The Microsoft global road show commenced on October 9, 2007 and will continue throughout 2008.
