Cast Iron Announces Next-Generation iA4000 Series of Software-as-a-Service Integration Solutions

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jul 22, 2008 -- Cast Iron Systems, the #1 SaaS integration solution provider, today announces the Cast Iron iA4000 series, a major development in the company's 'configuration, not coding' approach to integration. Designed with input from hundreds of customers and partners, the Cast Iron iA4000 series, whether on-premise or hosted in the cloud, significantly expands the capabilities of Cast Iron's market-leading SaaS integration solution. With the iA4000 series, Cast Iron now provides everything customers need to expedite the integration of on-demand to on-demand and on-premise applications. Cast Iron's new data migration capabilities include data conversion and profiling tools to accelerate SaaS adoption and use, its extensive library of pre-configured integration templates enable out-of-the-box synchronization of one-to-one and many-to-many application endpoints, and an advanced process flow designer helps users map out, execute, track, and document business process and data flows.

"Cast Iron is a mission-critical component of the Gearworks appmosphere™ platform that lets companies integrate their back-office applications with mobile devices on all major US carrier networks," states Rob Juncker, CTO and co-founder of Gearworks, a leading provider of location-based mobile business applications. "The iA4000 simplifies and speeds integration so we can scale our services to meet the demand for complex integrations in days rather than months."

The Cast Iron iA4000 series offers a host of productivity enhancements and major new capabilities:

--  Powerful data migration with built-in data conversion and profiling
    tools. Now customers can easily use the Cast Iron solution for all of their
    data migration needs, such as removing duplicates and rapid data cleansing,
    for example, to greatly accelerate SaaS adoption and use.
--  An online library of pre-configured components called Template
    Integration Processes (TIPs) for solving common integration problems. These
    templates help customers who are integrating on-demand solutions to solve
    their problems right out-of-the-box. Where company-specific configuration
    is needed, self-guided configuration wizards customize the TIPs to address
    customers' specific needs and expedite SaaS adoption.
--  The only Process Flow Designer that allows users to visualize business
    processes, the flow of information, and the movement of data on screen in a
    way that intuitively makes sense. Its unique user interface maps data flows
    to actual business processes so clearly that documentation is unnecessary,
    and creating integration workflows between on-demand and on-premise
    applications is a breeze -- a big boost for productivity.

"The introduction of the iA4000 series extends Cast Iron's commanding lead in the SaaS integration market," said Ken Comée, president and CEO of Cast Iron Systems. "In developing the new iA4000 series, we've worked closely with hundreds of our customers and the top on-demand application vendors in the industry to produce a solution that takes on-premise and in the cloud integration to an entirely new level of speed and simplicity."
