Raynet Acquires Software Deployment Business from Flexera Software

Former ManageSoft Enterprise Deployment Suite (EDS) product and customers to benefit from enhanced development and integration with RaySuite

Paderborn, Germany - 2012 August 28th: Germany-based Raynet GmbH, an important and valued Flexera Software partner and innovative IT specialist, today announced that it has acquired Flexera Software's Enterprise Deployment Suite (EDS) product and customer base. EDS is a globally installed system for software deployment in distributed infrastructure environments. EDS was acquired by Flexera Software as part of its ManageSoft acquisition in 2010.

US-based Flexera Software is the leading provider of strategic solutions for Application Usage Management for application producers and enterprises. Raynet, well-known in Europe with a successful track record of more than 12 years in system and software management, and in-depth know-how in software packaging and software virtualization services, is one of the most successful dedicated software management companies in Europe, a certified training and premier partner and reseller of Flexera Software.

"With this purchase," said Ragip Aydin, owner and managing director of Raynet, "we are demonstrating that we are driving our strategy to offer an all-in-one solution for application management."

RaySuite, Raynet's flagship product family, is a comprehensive, standardised and configurable process to manage applications from purchase to deployment in enterprise production systems. It provides a set of methods, rules, architectures and automation tools to manage enterprise workflow and various tasks in one common user interface and a central database. Raynet has engineered over 200 enterprise projects and many small and medium sized companies have successfully applied its methods and products, resulting in significant cost reduction and increase in productivity and quality.

"Within the unique framework of RaySuite we will invest in EDS to boost functionality and also to provide add-on features addressing new market developments," said Aydin. "EDS represents an important building block in our strategy to offer application management from one source."

As a service provider Raynet is traditionally strong in packaging and virtualisation projects and has gained a wealth of experience in planning and deploying hundreds of projects. "By leveraging this heritage," maintains Aydin, "we will listen to the voice of the customer and make product investments in EDS, not only to fulfil the needs of the installed base, but also to fulfil customer requirements for a seamlessly integrated solution with RaySuite."

Raynet will provide maintenance and support for all existing EDS customers no later than October 2012. EDS is installed at approximately 200 enterprise customer sites worldwide.

"As we integrate our solutions with leading products in the market, Flexera Software's strategy is to be agnostic with respect to deployment solutions," said Steve Schmidt, Vice President of Corporate Development at Flexera Software. "Consistent with this strategy, we're pleased to have partnered with Raynet to protect existing EDS customers and ensure they continue to receive ongoing value from their investment."
