Vancouver, BC – December 13, 1999 – Simba Technologies Inc., leading suppliers of tools for building and managing advanced Internet data access solutions, today announces its partnership with Unify Corporation. This partnership signals Simba’s continuing commitment to delivering the foundational components upon which many of today’s most important e-commerce and Internet application frameworks are built. Unify Corporation, headquartered in San Jose, is a leading provider of Internet and end-to-end e-commerce solutions that enable busineses to deliver online trading communities quickly and cost-effectively.

Technology from Simba provides the bridge between customer’s existing database technology and their sophisticated and current Internet and e-commerce applications. SimbaEngine and SimbaLib, ODBC software development tools for relational and non-relational data stores, are an important component to Unify eWave, an end-to-end e-commerce solution based on an open, component-based scalable architecture. Through ODBC and Java/JDBC, customers can access their valuable data assets, providing the integration to existing legacy systems necessary for a total e-business solution.

“The demands of today’s e-businesses require the ability to integrate backend systems with new online trading communities,” said Kirk Herrington, president and CEO of Simba Technologies. “Simba technology, combined with Unify eWave’s standards-based total e-commerce solution, provides customers with the tools they need to access existing database technology to build and manage sophisticated Internet and e-commerce applications.”

“Today’s total e-commerce solutions require an open, component-based architecture that leverages a customers’ existing investment in data assets,” said Dave Glende, director of product management for Unify. “Simba technology provides a strong complement to our own to meet the needs of customers developing integrated, full-scale Internet and e-commerce sites.”
