Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a global provider of application platforms and business and process integration solutions, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with nefos GmbH, a leading consulting partner of Salesforce.com located in Zurich, Switzerland.

Nefos will use iBOLT, Magic Software’s business and process integration suite to integrate the Salesforce.com on-demand application with their customers’ existing on-premise applications such as SAP.

Robert Santner, founding partner and head of consulting services at nefos GmbH, says, “Using iBOLT, we will be able to complete our integration projects significantly faster than before. For our customers this means more value from their Salesforce.com investment, which they can realize quicker.”

Stephan Romeder, general manager for Magic Software Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH) commented, “We are pleased to partner with nefos, one of Europe’s leading Salesforce.com consulting services. A major challenge when using SaaS applications like Salesforce.com is how to transfer data from these on-demand solutions to on-premise systems and how to define workflows between the two. iBOLT integrates Salesforce.com into any IT landscape without having to develop a dedicated interface or deal with hard coding.”

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.

iBOLT works natively with systems such as SAP Business OneSAP Business All in OneSAP R/3Salesforce.comOracle JD EdwardsIBM i applications and databases (AS/400)Lotus Notes applications, forms and databases, Health Care systems using HL7, EDI systems, and many more.

The iBOLT business and process integration suite has won SAP’s quality and innovation awards for three consecutive years in a row, from 2005 to 2008.
