Newmerix Buys Skywire Software's Object Manager

Newmerix Adds Change Control Designed for SAP(R) to Its Automate!(TM) Suite for Lifecycle and Compliance Management

SUPERIOR, Colo., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Newmerix Corp., which provides lifecycle and compliance management software for enterprise applications, today announced that it has purchased Skywire(R) Software's fully integrated transport management system Object Manager(TM), which is designed specifically for SAP(R). The purchase extends Newmerix's Automate!(TM) Suite of lifecycle and compliance management products by adding a comprehensive change control solution for SAP. Object Manager complements Newmerix's strategy of building application management products that work with enterprise application metadata-Object Manager is built in ABAP(TM) and installs directly into SAP environments.

Object Manager will join Newmerix's Automate!Suite of products for the SAP platform and be renamed Automate!Change. The Automate!Change application automates the transport management process within SAP environments, and because it's written entirely in ABAP -- SAP's own programming language -- and installs directly into the SAP application, it provides complete control over transports. Using the Automate!Change application from within SAP, customers can mitigate the risks associated with using disparate or generic systems to execute, monitor, track, and report on mission-critical transport operations.

The Automate!Change application provides four core change control functions: transport management, client comparison, transport rollback, and transport reporting. These capabilities enable companies to perform successful SAP upgrades and maintain regulatory compliance more effectively and at lower cost. The Automate!Change application is the only change control system for SAP that provides the ability to rollback or undo faulty transports.

"Change management is a costly problem for SAP customers," said Niel Robertson, Chief Technology Officer of Newmerix. "The combination of Newmerix's Automate!Control solution for overall change workflow and Object Manager (now Automate!Change) for technical transport management provides complete visibility and control throughout the CM process."

"By acquiring Skywire Software's Object Manager system (now Automate!Change), Newmerix is executing on its strategy of offering a portfolio of lifecycle management applications around major enterprise vendors, including SAP," said Patrick Brandt, CEO of Skywire Software. "We are very pleased with the strategic fit Object Manager has with Newmerix, and we are excited about the new opportunities this provides to our customers and employees."

For existing Object Manager customers, the acquisition will provide a path to a fully integrated suite of SAP Lifecycle management solutions that integrate directly with their current change control software. The Automate! Suite designed for the SAP platform now includes both the Automate!Control and Automate!Change solutions.

For Newmerix, this acquisition extends its change control capabilities to yet another enterprise application. The organization also plans to launch its automated functional testing application for Oracle e-Business applications, Automate!Test for Oracle, at the end of the year, which will effectively extend the company's lifecycle management suite to cover SAP, Oracle e- Business, and PeopleSoft applications.
