BroadVision Inc. (Nasdaq: BVSN) shot up 8 percent Monday after it announced an extension of its deal with Sun Microsystems, a deal with RSW Software, and the release of the next generation of its e-business software.
Shares in the supplier of personalized e-business applications were up 3 5/8 to 48 1/2. The stock has been going strong since the company beat estimates in its fourth quarter January.
The company introduced the release of BroadVision One-To-One Enterprise Version 5. Its One-To-One Enterprise is currently used by more than 500 customers such as American Airlines, Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HWP), Motorola (NYSE: MOT) and Xerox (NYSE: XRX).
Version 5 adds extended support for Java, XML and WAP and has a strong foundation for real-time, individualized targeting and wireless environments, the company said.
In a separate release, BroadVision said it had extended a relationship with Sun Microsystems (Nasdaq: SUNW) to market products based on the next generation of Sun's J2EE standard. The collaboration expands a 6-year relationship, which included work on the Java support for Broadvision's next-generation software released today. Both companies will commit design and technical resources for product development on the Sun(TM) platform.
RSW Software Inc., a maker of Web testing technology leader and a business unit of Teradyne, Inc. (NYSE: TER), also announced a deal with BroadVision Monday.
BroadVision is a long-term user of RSW's e-TEST(TM) suite and used the company's products for testing its new One-To-One Enterprise version 5.0. To further promote the use of performance testing among BroadVision customers and partners, RSW and BroadVision are working jointly on a number of key initiatives, including co-development of a performance tuning class based on RSW's e-Load(TM) and incorporation of e-Load in BroadVision's "Go-Live" consulting practice.
