Sterling Commerce Goes Beyond Mobile Commerce: Extends B2B Integration
Access and Control to Mobile Devices

Market Leader in Collaborative Integration Solutions Delivers Industry’s
First Business-to-Business Integration Applications on Mobile Devices

Columbus, Ohio – Feb. 15, 2010 – Building on momentum initiated in January
with the introduction of mobile commerce solutions around its order
management application, Sterling Commerce
, an AT&T Inc (NYSE:T) company, today announced two new mobile applications
– Sterling
Integrator Mobile and Sterling Control Center Mobile. These applications,
the first business-to-business (B2B) integration management capabilities
extended to mobile devices in the market, are designed to increase
productivity and speed responsiveness of information technology (IT) and
process administrators.

The new applications broaden access and control of Sterling Business

Sterling Commerce extends visibility to and ability to manage, govern and
respond to critical B2B processes/interactions beyond the on-premise control
