BroadVision Powers SoftBank's Cloud-Based Collaboration Platform

REDWOOD CITY and SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 9, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprise 2.0 Conference -- BroadVision (Nasdaq:BVSN) announced today a strategic partnership with SoftBank Telecom Corp to deliver "cloud-based" services to both its employees and customers. The solution, built on BroadVision® Clearvale -- an open Web-based platform for communication and collaboration for businesses -- will also provide SoftBank Telecom employees and customers with a number of premium communication services not typically found in social networking platforms. BroadVision made the announcement today at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Santa Clara, CA.

"BroadVision's vision of the 'social business cloud' -- a world where employees, partners, and customers can freely connect and collaborate with one another -- is both timely and compelling," said Ken Miyauchi, COO of SoftBank Telecom. "With BroadVision Clearvale, SoftBank Telecom will be able to significantly improve productivity and its ability to innovate across its entire business ecosystem."

A big focus for the alliance will be the delivery of mobile and "social-technology" services. As a leading telecommunications provider, SoftBank Telecom is well positioned to help business leverage the latest advances in mobile computing. "With SoftBank Telecom and BroadVision's new leadership in cloud computing and the enterprise social networking market, the partnership can provide constituents with the latest in collaboration technologies that are enabling businesses to more effectively engage with staff, partners and customers," said Ling Wu, VP & GM of Global Business Development at BroadVision.

"The enterprise of the future is virtual, mobile, and social," said Waten Suzuki, Cloud Business Division Head at SoftBank Telecom. "SoftBank Telecom and BroadVision will deliver the future to businesses today."

"The opportunity with SoftBank Telecom is extraordinary," said Dr. Pehong Chen, founder and CEO of BroadVision. "Their vision for the company is both remarkable in scope and for the value it represents for businesses. By providing a simple model for purchasing the most innovative communication, collaboration and IT services -- the services that help drive the enterprise -- SoftBank Telecom and BroadVision are poised to change the way business gets done in one of the world's biggest economies."
