Rapid development on Microsoft .NET
JMR Software and Sapiens International Corporation (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS) announced that it has launched a Microsoft and .NET based technology platform in South Africa, for the development of enterprise software applications after successful Beta testing was completed.
The new platform has special agility capabilities appreciated especially in the financial sector, and the technology is rapidly being adopted by customers in Israel, UK, USA, Japan and South Africa.
The new platform, Sapiens eMerge 4.Net, broadens Sapiens’ existing successful product line installed at hundreds of enterprise customers and will be included in the line of products offered by JMR to its enterprise customers, with special focus on the financial and insurance sectors.
Pioneering business rules technology

With hundreds of implementations across a wide range of industries and with a customer base that spans the USA, EMEA, and Japan, eMerge empowers mission-critical systems for many Global 1000 companies.
Under this initiative, Sapiens provides both its innovative model driven development environment (MDD) and it’s Microsoft and .NET targeted application server on windows and windows server versions, and integrated with Microsoft enterprise ecosystem products like SQL server 2005/8, system-centre and biztalk server.
Oren Dror, Vice-President, Enterprise partners and customers division, Microsoft Israel, said: “The co-operation between Microsoft and Sapiens will enable the most advanced technologies of these two companies to service their respective customers, allowing them to benefit from independent development capabilities, quick response time and significant development cost savings. The new platform will also enable IT managers of organisations to benefit from reliable solutions which directly support mission-critical enterprises.”

Mike Richards, a director of JMR, said : “The new platform represents a breakthrough in the field of MDA and agile enterprise development and increases Sapiens’ advantage in development speed and efficiency for enterprises operating in varied environments, and especially organisations in the financial and insurance sectors that are highly regulated and competitive. The partnership with Microsoft is another layer in Sapiens’ strategy of an open, integrative product through its work with UML DSL and integration with the Microsoft environments. We are extremely excited at the prospect of delivering scalable, robust enterprise applications using eMerge 4.Net in less than half the time it would take using traditional development tools.”
