Vendors selected for the “Cool Vendor report” are innovative, impactful and intriguing

Boston, MA, USA – 1 April, 2008 — PrismTech™, a leader in high-performance middleware and development tools, has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the "Cool Vendors in Platform and Integration Middleware, 2008" report by Gartner, Inc.

According to the report, "innovation in platform and integration middleware continues at an unstoppable pace." Additionally, "the need to support ultra-high-end requirements for transaction processing, messaging and other needs continues to be a major driver for innovation in this market."

The Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard supports fast and guaranteed-delivery, publish-and-subscribe messaging in enterprise applications, as well as in extremely severe environments where communication bandwidth is limited, connectivity is intermittent and noisy, and applications run on embedded devices with low-processing and storage capacity.

"We believe this shows exceptional recognition for PrismTech and reinforces OpenSplice DDS' position as the premier solution for real-time, highly distributed systems," said Angelo Corsaro, Ph.D., OpenSplice DDS product marketing manager, PrismTech. "Through our technology, solution, vision, leadership and highly effective go-to-market execution, we have clearly demonstrated that we are indeed offering a ‘cool’ middleware solution."

PrismTech has numerous OpenSplice DDS customers across a variety of application domains.
