Magic Software Enterprises, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a leading provider of application platform and business and process integration solutions, today announced its iBOLT and uniPaaS (previously eDeveloper) products are nominated in SOAWorld Magazine’s Readers Choice Awards.  Magic Software’s iBOLT was nominated for “Best Integration Tool” and uniPaaS was nominated for “Best SOA Tool.” 

The SOAWorld Readers Choice Awards recognize the best tools, solutions and education offerings in 19 categories.  Winners are selected through reader-submitted nominations, followed by online voting at SOAWorld, the world’s leading source of SOA news and information.  The voting for Reader’s Choice is now open.  Winners will be announced at the SOA World Conference & Expo 2008 West, November 19-21 in San Jose, Calif. 

Magic Software’s iBOLT is a code-free business integration suite that allows for customizable and streamlined business processes, integrating them across diverse applications, platforms and databases. iBOLT simplifies the design and integration process by separating business logic from integration technology.  Using wizards, drag-and-drop options and tables, users can connect with enterprise applications deployed on any hardware operating system or database technology.

uniPaaS (previously eDeveloper) is a comprehensive application platform and the next generation of the company’s award-winning eDeveloper series.  It is also the industry’s first RIA and SaaS-enabled Application Platform (SEAP) that uses a single development paradigm to automatically handle all Client and Server partitioning. Unique to the market, uniPaaS gives businesses the power to choose how to deploy their applications, whether Full Client or Web; on-premise or on-demand; software or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS); or global or local. uniPaaS is fully compatible with eDeveloper v10. 

“iBOLT and uniPaaS are great tools for enterprises looking to integrate on-demand and on-premise applications, as well as updating internal systems with SOA and a service-based approach,” said Avigdor Luttinger, Magic Software’s vice president of Corporate Strategy.  “Our channel and ISV partners and our customers view us as a trusted provider of integration and development tools because we work hard to ensure they can leverage existing IT resources, enhance business agility and focus on core business priorities.”
