IBM And Intentia Ship Integrated e-Business Solution For Mid-Sized Businesses


ARMONK, NY AND STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN - 20 Nov 2001: IBM and Intentia today announced worldwide availability of a new integrated server offering for small to mid-sized enterprises looking to reduce the cost and complexity of collaborative e-business.

The IBM eServer iSeries for Intentia addresses demand by mid-market customers to integrate vendors, resellers, and suppliers with a solution that is affordable, simple to deploy and easy to manage. It includes a specially configured IBM eServer i270 server, IBM WebSphere Internet infrastructure software and Intentia Movex eBusiness 4.1 solutions.

The new server offering is part of IBM's strategy to work with key software providers to deliver integrated hardware and software solutions that help small to mid-sized customers reduce the cost and complexity of their e-business infrastructures.

"In today's environment, customers are looking for solutions that deliver world-class capabilities at an affordable price," said Kim Stevenson, vice president, IBM eServer iSeries marketing operations. "Working with leading software providers like Intentia, we're delivering integrated, secure solutions that make life simpler for customers and provide rapid business benefit -- capabilities our competitors haven't been able to provide."

Intentia's Movex Collaboration Applications are powered by IBM WebSphere Internet infrastructure software and provide Web-based e-business extensions to core Intentia Movex NexGen applications.

"One of the advantages of deploying Movex solutions on the IBM eServer iSeries for Intentia is worldwide 24 by 7 availability of the solution on a reliable, highly secure platform," said Sven Ehn, Alliance Manager of Intentia. "This integrated hardware and software solution is designed to help small and medium-sized businesses increase their competitiveness, while reducing their costs."

With support for Linux, Java, Windows and Unix applications, and the ability to run multiple virtual servers on a single system, IBM eServer iSeries offers customers an affordable, easy-to-manage alternative to the cost and complexity of less reliable, less secure server farms.

The IBM eServer iSeries for Intentia is available today and will be marketed worldwide by Intentia's direct sales force and Intentia and IBM authorized reseller channels.
