(TSX: MKX) today announced today that Sweden's Seavus Group has selected MKS Integrity as its platform standard for end-to-end application lifecycle management (ALM).

ALM is described by industry analyst firm Forrester Research as the 'thread that ties the development life cycle together,' enabling global companies to execute business transformation, meet regulatory compliance goals, and break down the operational, tool and process silos that today stifle technology innovation and business performance. MKS Integrity provides a unique single platform for ALM, connecting every stage of the lifecycle with unified process providing complete management control over an application or system from inception to retirement.

Seavus Group's will initially implement MKS Integrity to automate its project and quality control processes enabling its consultants to manage projects end-to-end from requirements gathering through design, development, test and release, enforcing process as work progresses. MKS Integrity will enable Seavus Group to coordinate project work across multiple locations in Eastern Europe, and leverage best value skills, without risking project control or quality.

Capitalizing on its in-house use of MKS Integrity, Seavus Group will provide advisory and consulting services on ALM to Eastern Europe organizations showing these companies how to leverage MKS Integrity to increase quality, productivity and control through automation of lifecycle and IT processes.

"MKS is the only ALM vendor in the market that can provide end-to-end visibility and traceability over the application development lifecycle. We look forward to implementing MKS to improve our own team collaboration, application quality, and to increasing the productivity of our development teams through consistent adherence to process," says Igor Lestar, CEO and Co-Founder of Seavus Group. "There is great potential for MKS within Eastern Europe and we are excited about working with our clients to demonstrate how ALM can increase overall software quality and streamline project execution."

"We are delighted to welcome Seavus Group as a customer and strategic partner. The first hand knowledge this firm will gain through their implementation and use of MKS Integrity will be directly transferred to their clientele in the way of better process control, visibility and lifecycle traceability," says Thomas Hornek, Managing Director, MKS GmbH.
