PALO ALTO, Calif. - June 2008 - “Our participation in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab builds upon a long-standing partnership with SAP,” said Gary Rinedollar, vice president of Business Development, AmberPoint. “Our participation in the SAP Co-Innovations Lab not only showcases our integrations with the SAP NetWeaver Application Server, SAP NetWeaver Process Integration and Enterprise Services Repository, it also provides customers and partners the opportunity to support their enterprise SOA initiatives with end-to-end management capabilities across heterogeneous composite applications and infrastructure.”

“Businesses are seeking a future generation of solutions that enable growth, lower costs and reduce risk to the business,” said Elke Reichart, vice president, SAP Alliance, HP. “HP leverages the SAP Co-Innovation Lab to help evolve our SAP-related products, services and solutions in our Business Technology portfolio.”

“The SAP Co-Innovation Lab is clearly one of the industry’s leading examples of collaboration and thought leadership, and we are excited to participate in the process,” said John Michelsen, founder and chief scientist, iTKO LISA. “For instance, we are currently working with the SAP Co-Innovation Lab to prove the value of our LISA Virtual Service Environment to simulate the behaviors of SAP NetWeaver technologies, without the typical SOA interdependency constraints that limit agility. Innovations like this will improve delivery success and save significant costs for joint customers.”

“As one of the founding partners of the SAP Co-Innovation Lab, NetApp’s mission is to contribute innovation that will enable our joint customers to achieve greater business breakthroughs,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing, NetApp. “Disaster recovery is a critical issue for customers. Our collaboration with SAP and VMware will make disaster recovery easier for customers in virtualized environments by harnessing the power of NetApp and VMware solutions to protect their mission-critical business applications and achieve greater efficiencies in their data centers.”

“The SAP Co-Innovation Lab enables us to work directly with SAP experts on the best way to leverage our SOA operational governance solutions to preserve the fidelity of the governance models, structures and mechanisms of our shared customers,” said Frank Martinez, executive vice president of product strategy, SOA Software. “The lab provides an ideal model for how the two companies can innovate together to serve the needs of customers adopting enterprise SOA.”

“We are delighted to be a part of the SAP Co-Innovation Lab,” said Shankar Ramaswamy, CTO, Sonoa Systems. “The SAP Co-Innovation Lab is a tremendous asset for leading enterprise customers together with SAP and its partners to create innovative enterprise SOA solutions.”

“VMware Site Recovery Manager in combination with NetApp storage brings a new level of assurance to SAP deployments,” said Brian Byun, vice president of global partners and solutions, VMware. “Together, we provide customers automated recovery from disasters, automated execution of recovery plans, non-disruptive and more frequent testing, and the ability to match recovery plans to the specific needs of an SAP environment.”
