adidas-Salomon Works Some Magic

Magic Software Enterprises has signed a deal with adidas-Salomon AG Canada to provide the company the tools and training to build its own custom b-to-b site for the IBM iSeries platform. The new site, which will be built using Magic's application development technology, will extend adidas-Salomon Canada's current supply chain solution to allow customers access to sales, order status and payment information via the

Web.

Under the terms of the agreement, Magic developers will train adidas-Salomon Canada programmers on Magic's application development technology to enable them to independently create and deploy an e-commerce Web site. The solution, once developed, will run on the IBM iSeries and xSeries platforms using an IBM DB2/400 database with IBM OS/400 and Microsoft Windows 2000 operating systems.

adidas-Salomon AG is the second largest manufacturer of sporting goods worldwide, with a global estimated market share of about 15 percent. Brand names include: adidas, Salomon, Taylor-Made (golf), Mavic (cycling), Bonfire (winter sports) and Erima (swimming).
