EXPERSOFT PLAYS CATCH-UP, THROWS VC MONEY AT MARKETING

By CBR Staff Writer

Object request broker company Expersoft Corp says it’s been keeping a low profile while trying to nail down enterprise accounts. The problem is that its technology has taken something of a back seat and it’s name has been falling off the usual checklist of object technology companies. The San Diego, California-based company knows it, which is why it’s cranking up the marketing machine again. The $5m-odd company with flat revenues has picked up $6m funding from an unnamed venture capital concern and is going to throw that at the problem, beginning with new products it’ll debut at Object World West next week. With its new CorbaPlus transaction service (based upon Hitachi Ltd’s OpenTP transaction monitor), TransFusion CICS, IMS, Pathway, Tuxedo and MQSeries legacy integration module (from InSession), ActiveX Bridge (Visual Edge Software Ltd’s ObjectBridge object translation system), plus a native Java implementation of CorbaPlus, Expersoft’s effectively playing catch-up with the competition. However what it’s got in beta – messaging services – it thinks will put it back ahead of the game. Along with the asynchronous messaging APIs the Object Management Group is preparing to its Corba IIOP specifications, Expersoft is also adding a slew of messaging services to its ORB based on Houston, Texas-based Modulus Technologies Inc’s InterAgent Toolkit, technology which it licensed last year. The net result will give CorbaPlus guaranteed delivery, load balancing and multicasting amongst other things. CorbaPlus Java edition is $800, ActiveX Bridge is $800, the Transaction Service starts at $1,500 for a developer license and goes to $110,000 depending on configuration. TransFusion is from InSession.
