Borland Software Corp. Expands Into Wellington

Borland Software Corporation Expands Into Wellington Market

Wellington, July 1 2003

Borland Software Corporation, a world leader in platform independent software development and deployment solutions, is expanding its New Zealand interests and opening an office in Wellington.

“We believe there are exciting opportunities within the Wellington market that are tailor-made for our approach to application lifecycle management,” said Borland’s New Zealand Manager, Chris Gray.

“Our ability to work across all platforms - .NET, Java and Linux – gives us a ‘platform-neutral’ approach which is unique in the market,” says Mr Gray.

Mr Gray says this has enabled Borland to expand into the Wellington market and immediately build business.

“Interestingly, the Auckland market tends to be dominated by SME’s using largely Microsoft systems, whereas Wellington-based organisations use Java platforms,” he says.

“Our ability to think, create and act effectively across platforms has meant a timely expansion into Wellington has been relatively seamless.”

Mr Gray, who is based in Wellington, says he believes that as organisations recognise the value of an integrated approach to the software development process, Borland will go from strength to strength.

“We are ideally placed to continue to grow in New Zealand as market demand for independent, credible and robust integrated software development solutions increases,” he says.


Borland Software Corporation (Nasdaq NM: BORL) is a world leader in platform independent software development and deployment solutions that are designed to accelerate the entire application development lifecycle. By connecting managers, testers, designers, developers, and implementers in real time, Borland enables enterprises worldwide to define and sustain their competitive advantage.
