USU Software Acquires LeuTek to Extend Business Service Management Portfolio

MOGLINGEN, Germany, November 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The German USU Software AG (ISIN: DE000A0BVU28) has acquired the Systems and Service Management Software company LeuTek. The Management Board of USU and the shareholders of LeuTek have completed the corresponding contract of sale. The software company LeuTek is a manufacturer of standard software in the system and process management sector. LeuTek and USU are thus strengthening their market positions with the complementary range of services in the growth market of business service management (BSM). Peter O'Neill, principal analyst of the market research company Forrester, also responded positively to the news, "USU's Valuemation product already has the beginning of a business service management solution - the latest version of its configuration management database (CMDB) can document business services and their relationships to infrastructure assets. The addition of the LeuTek software will enable a much better real-time, end-to-end, monitoring of the business service performance."

LeuTek's major customers such as Allianz, BMW, Commerzbank, Deutsche Bundesbank, ENBW, LBBW, SwissCom and T-Systems use LeuTek basis systems for monitoring IT operations. The ZIS system, ZISGUI and ZISSLM monitor, visualize, automate and control all the systems and processes required for IT operations.

With Valuemation, companies such as BMW, Swiss Re, Allianz, Deutsche Telekom, Deutsche Post, Ferrovie dello Stato, MAN, MTU, Poste Italiane, and Wüstenrot & Württembergische use Valuemation, the modern application platform for comprehensive IT management, which is easy to customize and quick to implement. This enables them to precisely determine the state of their IT portfolio while enabling the easy control of both IT assets and costs. According to an analysis by the market research company Forrester in summer 2006, USU is one of the world's five leading manufacturers in the IT asset management sector. Also, in their current report "Technology Fast 50", auditors from Deloitte confirm that the company is one of the fastest-growing technology companies in Germany.

This USU growth strategy is now to be continued jointly with major emphasis the international marketing of the overall portfolio. The product lines of both companies complement each other perfectly, and will form an integrated and powerful software suite for business service management - through individual modules such as Service Management, Asset Management and Costing and Charging, to name a few or as an overall financial and IT management far reaching solution. Using this extended portfolio, IT managers are able to optimize the strategic deployment of IT and alwaywhile receiving key and easy to customize information for business management and control.
