Sopra Group : Axway Introduces Synchrony and Finalizes Merger with Cyclone; New Collaborative Business Solutions Integrate the Company's Core Technologies and Enable New Value Chain, Compliance and Industry Applications

06/28/2006 | 08:00am EDT

Axway (PARIS: SOP) announced the finalization of its merger this week with Cyclone Commerce by joining the companies' U.S. assets under the name of Axway, Inc. With over 7,000 customers worldwide now using the company's solutions to enable collaboration and compliance across numerous industries, the merger establishes a new global leader in the collaborative business solutions market. As its first move, Axway launched Synchrony, a comprehensive environment that incorporates integration, connectivity, process management and activity monitoring technologies as the foundation for the company's value chain, compliance and industry applications.

Synchrony delivers competitive advantage for companies by establishing the dynamic connections - within and among enterprises - that make companies easier to do business with. Synchrony enables companies to manage and control business-critical information in motion - improving value chain efficiency, regulatory compliance and quality of service. The company's new offering reflects the evolution of Axway and Cyclone's industry-leading technology for connecting applications, divisions, employees, customers, partners and regulatory bodies.

"With changing market conditions, governmental regulations, and the fervent need to gain a competitive edge, there has never been greater demand for transparency, integration, and collaboration," said Christophe Fabre, Axway's chief executive officer. "The challenge to manage business in motion requires technologies and solutions that can handle millions of moving parts. We're excited that our technology and service offerings have come together as a key part of our customers' strategic initiatives."

Reacting to the announcement of the Axway/Cyclone acquisition, Forrester Research analysts Ken Vollmer and Henry Peyret (IT View Quick Take, "Axway Acquires Cyclone Commerce," February 6, 2006) point out that the new Axway will be a true global force. "Cyclone Commerce has achieved significant success in the healthcare sector with solutions that target that space, while Axway has strong revenue coming from the financial and retail sectors. The new organization will be able to compete effectively across a broader range of vertical markets."
