Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a provider of application platforms and business and process integration solutions, announces that it has signed a contract with AVL, the world’s largest privately owned company for the development of powertrains. AVL selected Magic Software’s iBOLT to integrate their Salesforce.com with SAP R/3and Oracle systems.

AVL was particularly impressed by the fact that iBOLT came with standard connectors for Salesforce.com and SAP R/3.The iBOLT business and process integration suite enables organizations to synchronize data within diverse applications. It provides enhanced workflows, automation of manual processes, and a real-time view of business activity.For AVL, iBOLT offered an open architecture that was practical and comprehensible, so that when AVL plans to implement future changes to their IT set-up, those changes can be made quietly and efficiently without the need to call in expert help.iBOLTquickly and cost-effectively integrates a wide range of IT business applications including SAP Business OneSAP R/3, Salesforce.com,Oracle JD Edwards, Lotus Notes, Microsoft Office, IBM i (AS/400), HL7 applications and Google Apps.
