ANDERSEN CONSULTING INTRODUCES WINDOWS VERSIONS OF FOUNDATION CASE TOOLS (Product Announcement)

 ANDERSEN CONSULTING INTRODUCES WINDOWS VERSIONS
 OF FOUNDATION CASE TOOLS
 CHICAGO, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Andersen Consulting today introduced two new components of the FOUNDATION(R) computer aided software engineering (CASE) product set, DESIGN/1 for Windows(R) and PLAN/1 for Windows, to become the first vendor of integrated CASE tools to support the three leading application development environments -- Windows, OS/2 and DOS.
 With the announcement, Andersen Consulting extends its goal of providing customers flexibility and freedom of choice in the way they develop applications by supporting a range of development environments, operating systems and hardware platforms. The company also announced that organizations can trade in existing DOS and OS/2 DESIGN/1 and PLAN/1 products and replace them with the new Windows versions for no additional licensing fee.
 The new Windows versions of PLAN/1, a strategic planning tool, and DESIGN/1, a software analysis and design tool, leverage the powerful Windows environment for helping organizations develop both cooperative processing and traditional mainframe-based applications.
 "The new Windows products demonstrate FOUNDATION's fundamental flexibility, which not only provides customers a choice of CASE tools that span a variety of operating systems, but also facilitates their migration to new environments, such as cooperative processing," said Glover Ferguson, FOUNDATION Product Executive. "FOUNDATION supports the widest range of hardware platforms and operating systems in the CASE industry, which we believe is critical for the heterogenous, open applications development environments of the 1990's."
 MS-Windows, with an installed base of more than seven million copies, has become an increasingly popular development environment because it provides developers a natural way of organizing and working on complex, multi-faceted tasks. Windows-based products are not only easier-to-learn and easier-to-use, but also allow developers to display and interact with data from anywhere within the application being developed.
 "By providing support for Windows and other graphical user interfaces (GUIs), we are encouraging wider market acceptance for the FOUNDATION CASE products as we make them easier to use and more accessible to developers," said Ferguson.
 The integrated FOUNDATION product set provides a complete systems application development framework that controls and automates the tasks necessary to build and deliver quality systems. FOUNDATION is automated across the entire systems development life cycle, from planning and design through application development and maintenance.
 Andersen Consulting is the leading developer of CASE software for cooperative processing and client-server applications. The integrated FOUNDATION CASE products, which also support the development of mainframe-based information systems, support the entire software development life cycle and are among the most widely installed application development environments worldwide.
