Memphis, Tenn. — November 3, 2004 — I-many, the leading provider of advanced business solutions for managing corporate commitments, announced at its annual user conference a partnership with EPAM Systems. EPAM is the leading software services provider with advanced development centers in Eastern Europe - providing services for "Certified for NetWeaver™" and "Powered by NetWeaver™" statuses.
"Because the majority of I-many's current customers utilize SAP, it is critical that our solutions integrate as deeply as possible with SAP," stated Leonard Rainow, Senior Vice President of Products and Chief Technology Officer for I-many. "This commitment will ensure that I-many customers will realize even simpler integration, greater flexibility to run their business and allow them to better align IT resources to recognize the full benefits of I-many solutions working in conjunction with SAP."
To officially certify integration with its products, I-many is addressing two SAP NetWeaver™ programs. "Certified for SAP NetWeaver™" is awarded to products that feature integration with an SAP NetWeaver component and enhance SAP NetWeaver functionality. "Powered by SAP NetWeaver™" status requires a more demanding certification and is for applications that additionally enable convenient deployment of Java or ABAP applications on SAP Web Application Server.
"I-many has chosen EPAM Systems for this project based on EPAM's 300,000 + hours of experience in delivering NetWeaver and related technologies," commented Terry Nicholson, Chief Operating Officer of I-many. "EPAM, an official SAP technology and service partner, has been closely collaborating with SAP for over seven years, with the main focus on NetWeaver™ and xApps™ development over the last two years."
"EPAM recognizes I-many's leadership and vision, particularly in aggressively pursuing the deeper 'Powered by NetWeaver' certification," acknowledged Arkadiy Dobkin, Chief Executive Officer of EPAM. "We look forward to working with I-many's internal architecture and development team to further develop I-many's solutions in this area."
