Welcome to our Winter 2013 edition of the Gravic Shadowbase Products Group Newsletter. We had an exciting and busy run these past few months; we won various awards, issued a new patent, gained new customers, and delivered some exciting new technology to the marketplace.
HP and Intel announced Gravic, Inc. as the winner of the 2012 Mission-Critical Innovation Award at the Mission-Critical Awards Celebration event held at Steinberger Frankfurter Hof in Frankfurt, Germany in December.

Version 5.001 for Shadowbase is now available in general release. This version extends a number of existing Shadowbase capabilities, as well as adds support for several new features. Importantly, the release resolves a number of issues and contains some patches from HP for improving the performance of the HP ARLIB audit reading routines.
The Sales and Marketing teams were very busy these past few months with trade shows and conferences, some exciting new customers joining our team, and winning another HP/Intel award for our efforts at a bank on the Pacific Ring of Fire.
