LONDON, February 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

United Planet (http://www.unitedplanet.com), one of the leading developers of
enterprise portal software in Europe, has developed a generic development
environment for SAP NetWeaver Gateway Technology. The 'SAP Certified- Powered
by SAP NetWeaver' interface, Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0
(http://www.intrexx.com/sng), allows users to quickly and easily integrate
their SAP data into any compiled web application, using the Open Data protocol
(OData). Using the interface in conjunction with SAP NetWeaver Gateway enables
users to exploit the new licensing models offered by SAP specifically for SAP
NetWeaver Gateway.

SAP NetWeaver Gateway makes use of the standardised web protocol OData and
considerably simplifies access to SAP data, particularly for those who are not
SAP developers. Thanks to the OData protocol, the user no longer needs to be
familiar with SAP interfaces or the relevant SAP system. Instead, OData
enables the easy and simple integration into, and processing of, data on the
majority of technology platforms and development environments. These
properties are made available to the user via the new functionality provided
by the Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0.

Intrexx is a platform-independent visual development environment which can be
used to create web-based applications as well as entire enterprise portals.
The strength of the United Planet software, currently in use by more than
4,000 users and organisations, lies in the integration of all the data
available within a company and the ability to use it in new applications. The
software's simplicity of use considerably reduces the time needed to create
and launch these application projects.

With the new interface connecting Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0 and SAP
NetWeaver Gateway, any SAP service can be integrated into applications
available via the OData protocol, at the click of a mouse. The user benefits
from a new and very cost-effective, usage-dependent licensing model from SAP
AG. The adapter was certified by SAP AG in September 2012.

United Planet's CEO, Axel Wessendorf, explains: "Previous solutions have
always been limited to a very precisely specified and implemented service, for
example, business partner addresses. With the Intrexx Adapter for SAP
NetWeaver Gateway, we have taken a different path. Thanks to the generic
approach, every user is able to choose which services or data they wish to
include in their applications or portal. This provides increased flexibility
in a much more simplified way."

Another advantage for the user is access to the "Mobile Assistant" which has
been integrated into Intrexx. This enables applications with SAP data to be
conveniently delivered to all mobile devices (e.g. iPhone, Android,
BlackBerry) which enables users to simply and easily access all the relevant
information in their SAP backend systems via Intrexx and SAP NetWeaver
