Agricultural Bank Of China, China's Third Largest Lender, Chose Magic's AppBuilder To Develop Major Banking Application

OR YEHUDA, Israel, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. ( NASDAQ: MGIC), a global provider of software platforms for enterprise mobility, cloud applications, and business integration, announced today that Agricultural Bank of China Ltd. (ABC), China's third largest lender by assets, chose Magic's AppBuilder to develop its new generation of core banking application (the "BoEing", Blue Ocean Engineering), deployed at all of its nearly 24,000 banking facilities.

The application built by ABC using AppBuilder is a key component of the bank's core banking system. The vast application includes more than 20,000 programs and hundreds of thousands of application artifacts, and took a team of 350 developers two years to complete. AppBuilder's comprehensive application development infrastructure enabled ABC to easily deploy the application across a complex distributed environment containing many disparate technologies, including IBM Mainframe, Microsoft Windows, Cobol, C#_WPF, WSDL, DB2 and Sybase.

"We needed a robust solution that would support hundreds of millions of transactions per day and allow us to maintain complete control over the application development along the way," said Mr.Liang, the BoEing project manager at ABC. "For large, long-term projects like this, any delay is extremely costly. Not only did AppBuilder meet our demanding system requirements, it also enabled us to meet our aggressive deployment schedule."

"Forward-thinking banks like ABC, understand that their business is only as good as their underlying technologies," said Arik Killman, CEO of AppBuilder Solutions Ltd. "We are proud to be the development platform of choice for ABC and many other leading financial and Fortune 1000 institutions."
