MILAN, ITALY, March 31, 2005 - SO.MUS.AR. s.a.s. (Somusar) announced today it has joined the Symbian Affiliate Partner Program to support the growing market for smartphones based on Symbian OS(TM). As an Affiliate Partner, Somusar is extending its technology and services for the automated production of software to the Symbian OS ecosystem. Symbian develops and licenses Symbian OS, the global industry standard operating system for smartphones, to the world's leading handset manufacturers including Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, Siemens and Sony Ericsson.

"This partnership reflects our commitment to the market of highly automated software development tools and our intent to build upon our strategy in the mobile communications sector," said Francesco Aliverti-Piuri, Managing Partner & Co-founder, Somusar. "By becoming a Symbian Affiliate Partner, we can further expand our portfolio of software generators and strengthen our relationships with users, application developers, mobile phone manufacturers and network operators. "

"The smartphone business is rapidly growing and Symbian OS is at the heart of it. Symbian's policy of openness underpins industry models that create value in the after market and Somusar is delighted to be a member of the Affiliate Partner Program."

Somusar builds custom software "machines" that produce software. Its products and services contribute to improve the productivity and consistency in software and documentation development by enabling the high-speed generation of virtually any type of software from concise textual models.

Somusar's software generators are tailored to the platforms, guidelines, and best practices particular to each software development context. These generators rapidly and accurately produce the repetitive parts of software that developers and software authors would otherwise write by means of costly and error-prone copy-paste-edit or click-drag-drop cycles. Developers and authors thus gain time for more creative activities, reducing time-to-market and improving overall software quality.

The foundation for the custom generators is provided by the Somusar/Software Production Machine (in short, SoProMach), a generalized, language-neutral, multiplatform software source code and documentation generator, capable of accepting several input formats, such as XML, CSV, plain text, and Sisendel EF (entity files), a new textual design language for describing multilayer software entities. Somusar/SoProMach is currently the only software generator based on new technology and languages expressly designed for generation purposes.

"Smart software generators are development tools that add real value to developers and authors of smartphone software based on Symbian OS," said Phil Spencer, Global Manager, Affiliate Partner Program, Symbian. "We are pleased to have Somusar join the Symbian Affiliate Partner Program and bring with them their experience of automated software production and the capacity to provide innovative tools for Symbian OS smartphone developers worldwide."
