Attunity Ltd. (OTC Bulletin Board: ATTUF), a leading provider of real-time data integration and event capture software, announced today that it had entered into a new, multi-million dollar OEM agreement with Microsoft Corporation (Nasdaq: MSFT), to provide Attunity’s change data capture (CDC) in Microsoft’s next version of SQL Server. The integration of Attunity CDC into SQL Server will support customer requirements in strategic markets including cloud computing and real time business intelligence (BI).
Shimon Alon, Attunity’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated: “This OEM agreement is an important turning point for Attunity. Aside from the strategic importance of this five-year agreement, we expect to receive a significant portion of the payments during 2011 and the balance in quarterly payments starting toward the end of 2012. This will enable us to strengthen our cash position and accelerate our growth by making additional investments in sales, marketing and R&D, as well as target high growth markets such as cloud computing.”
“We are focused on delivering a business platform that helps our customers maximize the value of their data for operations and business intelligence, on-premise and in the cloud,” said Denise Draper, Product Unit Manager at Microsoft. “By making innovative technologies such as Attunity’s CDC available in SQL Server, we are making it easier to use data efficiently, enabling customers to capitalize on the lower cost of ownership of the Microsoft platform and cloud computing.”
Shimon Alon concluded: “This agreement elevates our already successful partnership with Microsoft to a new level, making Attunity the de-facto partner of choice for dealing with heterogeneous data, on-premise and in the cloud, creating new and exciting opportunities for both companies in the future”.
With this integration, Microsoft customers will seamlessly use Attunity’s CDC to enable efficient movement of data from Oracle databases, addressing the high demand for making data available for business intelligence and data warehousing, as well as for capitalizing on the cost efficiencies of managing data in the cloud. Attunity is a leading provider of Change Data Capture (CDC) technology, offering CDC products for many heterogeneous enterprise databases, relational and non-relational, on platforms ranging from Windows to the mainframe. Having been previously selected by Microsoft for providing high-speed connectors, this agreement represents a repeated selection of Attunity, which Attunity believes demonstrates the high quality of the Attunity technology, as well as Attunity’s standards and commitment to its customers’ success.
Additional details regarding the OEM Agreement are included in the Company’s Report on Form 6-K filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
