Matrix and RTI Enter into Strategic Channel Relationship to Deliver Highly-Scaled Operational Technology Integration

Israel's Leading Systems Integrator to be Exclusive Israeli Channel Partner Delivering New RTI Connext Software for Integration Infrastructure

SUNNYVALE, Calif.—Feb. 27, 2012—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the world leader in delivering fast, scalable communications software that addresses the challenges of building and integrating real-time operational systems, and Matrix, the leading information technology company in Israel, today announced that they have entered into an exclusive channel relationship for Israel. Matrix will build upon RTI's strong position in the defense sector, as well as drive RTI's products into larger system-of-systems applications in the broader enterprise market. The companies will partner to deliver the substantial business benefits of the emerging opportunity to bridge Information Technologies (IT) with embedded and real-time Operational Technologies (OT). RTI's products are ideally suited to enable this integration.

This is the first time RTI has entered into an exclusive channel relationship and its first channel relationship with a large-scale systems integration company. The agreement reflects the confidence that both parties have in RTI Connext™, a new family of products designed to connect real-time applications across an enterprise.

Supported by its own IT Software Products group, Matrix is a leader in the field of integration projects, including data integration, application integration, business integration and technology integration in many environments. In choosing RTI, Matrix will further broaden its integration solution capabilities. As part of this solution framework, RTI's industry-leading assets in system-of-systems and distributed application performance, reliability and scalability will assist organizations in reducing risk, shortening timescales and achieving high rates of success in large-scale implementations.
