Seagull Software has signed up Farabi Technology Middle East (FTME) as an authorised distributor for the Middle East and North Africa region. FTME will market, sell and support the full range of Seagull software tools and solutions. The agreement enables FTME to offer a wide spectrum of solutions that can transform legacy business applications into service-oriented architecture (SOA) assets, complemented by business process management (BPM) tools. “We are very excited about this partnership with Seagull Software,” said Bachar Kassar, general manager at FTME. “Seagull’s rich line of products, coupled with Farabi’s extensive experience in integration services offers an unmatched partnership to help our clients to smoothly transition towards SOA.” Kim Addington, executive VP and chief marketing officer at Seagull, said: “At Seagull Software we recognise the excellence that Farabi has demonstrated in serving the Middle East market since 1993. Because we realise the importance of legacy systems in the business of today’s enterprises in the Middle East, we are delighted with this partnership and confident that clients in the region will appreciate the value of a single local source for solutions, expertise and consultancy services.” Seagull Software’s offering includes the LegaSuite family of products, which aims to facilitate legacy integration by creating web services from CICS, IMS, iSeries, Unix and Windows transactions (business logic integration), or through application screens (screen logic integration). UAE-based Farabi bills itself as a regional provider of products and solution focused on the legacy host access and integration domain. The company now boasts more than 150 clients throughout the Middle East, North Africa and South West Asia in a number of verticals including banking and finance, airlines and government.
