Sierra Atlantic Announces SCMnet 4.1 Integration Product for Agile 9.0

Adds PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne Support in addition to Oracle and SAP

Fremont, Calif. - November 11, 2003 - Sierra Atlantic, Inc., today announced Supply Chain Management Network (SCMnet) version 4.1, integrating Agile Product Collaboration 9.0 to Oracle Applications, SAP and PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne, formerly JD Edwards OneWorld. SCMnet 4.1 fully supports the enhanced functionality of Agile 9.0, including new business entities like site-specific bills of material (BOMs) and change orders, as well as Agile Integration Framework for capturing Agile data.

Sierra Atlantic is the leader in integrating Agile Product Collaboration with Oracle and SAP and is now expanding its robust ERP integration support to PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne. Sierra Atlantic is PeopleSoft's go-to partner for business process integration solutions and is leveraging this relationship to provide a robust integration solution between Agile and PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne. Support for PeopleSoft Enterprise Supply Chain Management is planned for later release.

"Sierra Atlantic's deep knowledge of integrating Agile to SAP, combined with the SCMnet capabilities, enabled us to incorporate both platforms with our legacy system in under two months," said Tim Hanrahan, Vice President of Information Systems at Adaptec. "Because of a recent business acquisition, we needed to quickly integrate the systems, and Sierra Atlantic allowed us to meet that aggressive schedule."

"Agile has always counted on Sierra Atlantic to provide reliable integration solutions for our customers" said Ray Hein, vice president, product strategy, Agile. "We're delighted that Sierra Atlantic's SCMnet supports Agile 9 out-of-the-box with the same level of quality and a broader range of ERPs and middleware."

"With SCMnet 4.1, we are extending our leadership in business process integration solutions among the leading enterprise applications--Agile, Oracle, PeopleSoft and SAP," said Joga Ryali, Sierra Atlantic's CTO. "Our Application Networks are valued by customers because they reduce the cost, complexity and risk of integrating application packages."
