Industry Leaders Defywire and webMethods Provide Customers with Competitive Advantage Through Real-Time Wireless Computing 

INTEGRATION WORLD 2003 – ORLANDO, FL. -- October 29, 2003 -- webMethods, Inc. (Nasdaq: WEBM), the industry's first Web services infrastructure company, and Defywire, Inc., a leading provider of wireless middleware technology, announced the launch of webMethods Mobile™, an enterprise wireless platform that delivers real-time front and back office information to mobile devices including, phones, PDAs, tablets and laptops. 

Available immediately, webMethods Mobile, based on the Defywire Mobility Suite®, enables enterprises to rapidly deploy secure, reliable and scalable wireless applications. With webMethods Mobile, customers will be able to reduce the time, effort and cost of implementing wireless initiatives across the enterprise. The webMethods Mobile solution is network and device independent. It enables organizations to deploy solutions based on existing wireless standards with the ability to leverage future technology and standards improvements as they become available on the market without being forced to re-implement. 

"With webMethods Mobile, our customers will be able to improve responsiveness, productivity and enterprise workflow, gaining a significant competitive advantage," said Kristin Weller, executive vice president of Product Development, webMethods, Inc. "The webMethods Mobile solution has the unique advantage of providing a seamlessly integrated, out-of-the-box solution for providing wireless access to the full range of enterprise resources already supported by the webMethods Integration Platform."
