SYSPRO Recognized for Early SOA Adoption in Tech Analyst Reports

Leading Research Firm Notices Early Entry into SOA

COSTA MESA, Calif. - January 7, 2008 - SYSPRO, a provider of visionary ERP software for the manufacturing pragmatist, said today that the company has been recognized by AMR Research as an early provider of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). The AMR Research Report referencing SYSPRO, "ERP Providers Serving the Midmarket," was published in late 2007.

"SYSPRO [has] been down the SOA path for quite some time," says AMR Research Report author Simon Jacobson. "SYSPRO componentized its product so functionality can be consumed on any device or in tandem with a development language as a way to add functionality and extend its product into its customers' supply networks without the need for extensive programming or alterations to the core system."

In another report published by AMR Research in 2006, "SOA May Be an Early Hit in the Midmarket," AMR Research author Dennis Gaughan recognized SYSPRO as being on the "forefront" of SOA technology. The report names SYSPRO as one of two midmarket ERP vendors which have made transitions to SOAs [Service Oriented Architectures.] "Both companies," he says, "have been at the forefront of distributed computing and SOA."

SYSPRO's more thoughtful approach to adopting new technology, such as web services and SOA platforms, reflects the cautionary desires of its mid-market manufacturing and distribution company customers, who are driven by business needs, and not by the latest headlines. SYSPRO calls its buyer landscape "PragmaVision" (TM) -- pragmatic, but visionary ERP executives that are driven by a desire for smart, but aggressive market growth.

Since its inception in 1978, SYSPRO has been delivering state-of-the-art business solutions to some of the world's leading companies. As a global leader in the production of world-class ERP software, the company now caters to the specialized needs of 12,000 licensed companies in more than 60 countries worldwide. SYSPRO is marketed globally through regional territory distribution centers in the US, Canada, Africa, Asia Pacific, Australia and the UK.

SYSPRO is a fully integrated business software solution that provides complete control over the planning and management of all facets of business including accounting, manufacturing and distribution operations in a variety of industries.
