Selerant announces plans to release its web-based Product Lifecycle Management solution, DevEX, on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 this December 2007. The plan will not be alone, many DevEX users will find themselves in motion as they collaborate faster, expedite products through development lifecycles, and customize their implementation to create truly unique toolsets -- all with the added ability of a closed certified connection with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Office SharePoint Server 2007.
"We have seen a steadily increasing demand for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 support from our customers," states Carlo Colombo, CEO of Selerant. "We are certainly pleased to put into motion a plan that will not only satisfy the immediate demand, but will prepare DevEX for the future with our plans for integration with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007."
"This two-way closed communication ensures that users will have the ability to import and export data securely and seamlessly between the toolsets of DevEX and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007," explains Colombo. "We are essentially providing a superior level of formulation development, regulatory compliance, and collaboration to customers who prefer solutions built with certified Microsoft integration."

Selerant already has customers who have signed contracts or are currently in the contract negotiation process. "We have seen a significant upswing in interest," states Sunil Thomas, Selerant's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "While these customers have initially come to us for our expertise in regulatory compliance, formulation development and global collaboration. The changing factor now in the final stages of contracts is the standardization to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and the ability to use Office SharePoint Server 2007 tools directly from DevEX."
While DevEX has always enabled scalability, the Microsoft platform amplifies the degree of flexibility, security, and cost-efficiency. DevEX users can optimize their unique implementation suites and elevate their own efficiency and profitability to new levels while ensuring global compliance to the strictest standards, all while utilizing Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007 features.
"Our standards demand that we not only promise new developments, but put these promises of development into action," says Colombo. "This closed integration between DevEX and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Office SharePoint 2007 will be the first of many steps in our very promising DevEX product roadmap. And that's why we are very excited to shout, 'Action!'"
