Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a global provider of cloud and on-premise enabled application platform and business integration solutions, today announced a large, multi-year project to upgrade and maintain the application platform and integration suite of the Israel Military Police, a part of the Israel Defence Forces (IDF).

Magic Software and Manerva Systems, a Magic Software ISV partner, will upgrade the Military Police’s core IT systems to the latest versions of the uniPaaS platform enabling both cloud and on-premise application development and deployment. The deal also includes the iBOLT code-free business integration suite.

Yoram Aharon, CEO for Magic Software Israel commented, “We are very pleased that the Israel Military Police has selected to upgrade to uniPaaS and iBOLT. This deal will provide the force with the latest capabilities in application development, deployment and integration, including the ability to rapidly build rich internet and cloud-based applications, and integrate these with both back-office and other cloud solutions without extensive coding. Once implemented, both systems will provide the Military Police with real-time status reporting and a full picture of nation-wide operations at any given snapshot, for hundreds of system users.”

Information security was reported to be a vital system requirement for the project and one of the reasons for the selection of Magic Software’s platform solutions. According to Aharon, “The upgrade to uniPaaS and iBOLT will allow for the integration of the most advanced active IT security systems currently available.”

Notes for Editors
uniPaaS is an application platform enabling Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to deliver business applications with minimal project risk and associated costs.

uniPaaS is the first application platform combining agile development and a single paradigm for multiple deployment channels. uniPaaS enables enterprises and software vendors to build client/server applications and rich internet applications (RIA) targeting the latest technologies including Cloud computing, mobile devices and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings.

The freedom of choice offered by uniPaaS enables businesses to launch confidently into the Cloud without sacrificing current on-premise application models or mission-critical databases.

iBOLT is a code-free business and process integration suite. The product works seamlessly with solutions such as SAP Business OneSAP ERPSalesforce.comOracle JD EdwardsIBM i applications and databases (AS/400), Lotus Notes applications, forms and databases, healthcare systems using HL7Microsoft Dynamics CRMMicrosoft SharePoint, EDI systems, and many more.

iBOLT’s code-free approach is facilitated by a pre-compiled and pre-configured coding engine based upon Magic Software’s 25 years of application development experience. This enables both simple and complex business processes to be designed and implemented quickly and easily – and also makes it more cost-efficient to assimilate and integrate future IT application acquisitions.
