April 23, 2001 - AlterEgo Joins
BEA Star Partner Program - Enables BEA Customers to Build a Pervasive E-Business With BEA-Ready
Redwood City, California - April 23, 2001 - AlterEgo, the leading
provider of enterprise software and services for enabling the pervasive
Internet, today announced that it has joined the Star Partner Program of
BEA Systems, Inc., one of the world's leading e-business infrastructure
software companies. Through this alliance, AlterEgo will provide enterprises with even tighter integration between the BEA WebLogic®
E-Business Platform and AlterEgo's Adaptive Performance Suite(tm).
AlterEgo's development of BEA-Ready software solutions provides enterprises with a highly scalable migration path for transforming
existing e-business infrastructures to pervasive e-businesses infrastructures.
The family of products in the AlterEgo Adaptive Performance Suite are
designed to transform the existing enterprise e-business infrastructure
into an "Adaptive Enterprise" - one that is capable of addressing the
challenges posed by increasing proliferation of content, mobile devices
and the resulting infrastructure complexity. The product suite -- comprised of three products: AlterEgo Content Adaptation Server(tm),
AlterEgo Mobile Web Server(tm) and AlterEgo Adaptive Hub(tm) -- offers
customers a modular product architecture, with a step-by-step approach
to building an Adaptive Enterprise.
"In addressing the real infrastructure challenges of the pervasive
Internet, it's critical that AlterEgo tightly integrate with leading
e-business solutions like those offered from BEA," said David Downing,
vice-president of marketing, AlterEgo. "Our involvement with BEA reinforces our effort to complement existing enterprise infrastructures.
Through this relationship, AlterEgo may enable even higher levels of
performance for BEA customers as they address the issues of content proliferation, device heterogeneity and across varying networks for both
wired and wireless devices."
AlterEgo Adaptive Performance Suite AlterEgo Adaptive Performance Suite addresses e-business infrastructure
issues today, while creating a clear path to m-business and pervasive
e-business capabilities in the future. AlterEgo Content Adaptation
Server(tm) helps enterprises take the first step to building an Adaptive
Enterprise by simplifying and unifying the disparate formats of web applications being proliferated by their existing e-business
infrastructure. AlterEgo Mobile Web Server(tm) then helps extend the
simplified and unified e-business infrastructure to an m-business model,
where corporate web-services can now be extended to the proliferating
variations of mobile Internet access devices, be they WAP phones, PDAs,
or two-way pagers. And finally, AlterEgo Adaptive Hub(tm) helps customers integrate e-business and m-business infrastructures, into a
cohesive and centrally managed pervasive e-business infrastructure. AlterEgo Adaptive Performance Suite of products also provides BEA
customers with a platform to integrate industry-standard J2EE and XML
technologies into their pervasive e-business infrastructure.
As a member of the BEA Star Partner program with wireless solutions that
complement the BEA WebLogic family of products, AlterEgo will receive an
array of benefits in marketing, sales, training, education, and technical development. BEA Star members are systems integrators,
independent software vendors and application service providers building
e-business solutions on the BEA WebLogic E-Business Platform(tm) to help
make their customers Internet-ready and future-proof.
AlterEgo provides enterprise pervasive e-business software and services
that accelerate the productivity of employees, partners and customers by
enabling scalable dynamic access to web content and applications whenever and wherever it's needed. AlterEgo Adaptive Performance
Suite(tm) of products provides a framework for enabling pervasive access
to the Internet, integrating with existing e-business infrastructure
products and technologies. The scalable AlterEgo Adaptive Performance
Suite platform dynamically adapts and delivers content customized for
