BUZZEO INC. PARTNERS WITH CAPE CLEAR

Scottsdale, ARIZ. — Buzzeo Inc., a leading designer of Internet technology solutions, Friday announced its partnership with Cape Clear Software, a leading supplier of XML infrastructure technology, to simplify and accelerate the development process for enterprise application developers. “We are excited about the opportunity provided by this alliance to integrate our powerful ZEO CORBA Component Wizard with CapeConnect,” said Mike Huestis, Buzzeo chief technical officer. The integration combines ZEO CORBA Component Wizard’s design and client/server generation capability with the CapeConnect functionality for creation of SOAP-enabled HTML clients accessing CORBA back-end systems.

“This is an excellent use of CapeConnect to provide the first end-to-end CORBA development solution to allow developers to build complete, SOAP-enabled CORBA solutions directly from a graphical environment,” said John McGuire, chief operating officer at Cape Clear Software. The ease of use resulting from the combined ZCCW/CapeConnect code and HTML generation represents a significant enhancement over “traditional” command-line component development environments. In addition, the SOAP connectivity provided by the CapeConnect “SOAPDirect” toolkit will allow servers created using ZCCW to be accessed from XML-based applications. “CORBA and EJB will continue to be the dominant enterprise component architecture behind company firewalls,” said Huestis. “Additionally, SOAP’s XML-over-HTTP distributed protocol is emerging as the standard for business-to-business and business-to-consumer Web-enabled applications.” CapeConnect unites applications, Web pages and middleware components around a standards-based XML model. “The SOAP-to-CORBA code generation and integration capabilities of the ZEO CORBA Component Wizard and Cape Clear’s CapeConnect will greatly accelerate the time-to-market for applications that need to leverage these powerful technologies,” said Bob DeAnna, Buzzeo’s vice president of Product Architecture. “Therefore we also will be integrating CapeConnect into ZEO’s Enterprise Bean Wizard, which will be released as part of ZEOLogix early in 2001.” For additional information, please go to http://www.buzzeo.com or http://www.capeclear.com .

SIMULATIONS PLUS AND ACD TEAM UP

Lancaster, CALIF. — Simulations Plus Inc. and Advanced Chemistry Development Inc. (ACD), have announced a partnership to provide an integrated in silico (in the computer) solution for the screening, identification and characterization of promising new drug compounds by an integration of software from the two companies. Simulations Plus is a leading provider of ADME neural net and absorption simulation software used in the discovery and development of new drugs. Simulations Plus developed and licenses a suite of ADME (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion) simulation software, which includes among other software GastroPlus, the respected leader in the prediction of drug absorption in human and laboratory animals, and QMPRPlus(TM), which generates estimates of certain critical ADME properties from molecular structures. ACD is a leader in the field of physical property prediction. It offers accurate and insightful predictions of molecular physical properties, such as lipophilicity and solubility, both of which are important characteristics in the development and evaluation of new drugs.

Simulations Plus will link ACD’s pKa Batch prediction engine, a core component of ACD/PhysChem Batch, with Simulations Plus’ QMPRPlus, to include accurate estimates of ionization of molecules as part of the calculation of key ADME properties. The addition of accurate pKa prediction will enable joint customers to perform more accurate in silico screening of sets of ionizable compounds to identify and characterize promising new leads. “The valuable prediction of pKa provided by ACD through this partnership will enhance the new MDCK permeability model in QMPRPlus, which would otherwise require physical measurements of pKa on samples of the compounds,” said Michael Bolger, Ph.D., Director of Life Sciences of Simulations Plus. “Simulations Plus and ACD share the same vision: bring forward critical insight about a drug candidate’s potential for human absorption as early as possible in the Drug Discovery process,” said Robert DeWitte, Ph.D., Scientific Product Manager, Physical Chemistry at ACD. “This is the driving force behind all of the physical property predictions we make. As a result of this agreement, Medicinal Chemists can make decisions before synthesis, saving time and money and focusing effort on likely successes.”
