LEADING SOFTWARE VENDORS ANNOUNCE DRDA PRODUCTS AND SUPPORT

 LEADING SOFTWARE VENDORS ANNOUNCE DRDA PRODUCTS AND SUPPORT
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Two leading software vendors have announced products that implement Distributed Relational Database Architecture(A) (DRDA)(A), IBM's (NYSE: IBM) architecture for accessing distributed relational data, while others have announced their intention to deliver products that implement DRDA.
 Object Technology International Inc. (OTI) and XDB Systems have announced products that provide access from their database products to IBM's relational database managers.
 Two other companies, Ingres Corp. and Progress Software Corp., have announced their intention to deliver products that support DRDA. Together with OTI and XDB, that brings to 10 the number of leading software vendors that have licensed the DRDA technology from IBM and who intend to produce DRDA Application Requesters and/or Application Servers. The other six are Borland International, Inc.; Cincom Systems, Inc.; Informix Software, Inc.; Micro Decisionware, Inc., Novell and Oracle Corp.
 "The availability of products which implement DRDA will give customers a robust, high-performance solution for database interoperability in the multivendor enterprise," said Tom Aser, Programming Systems director of marketing, IBM Programming Systems. "This will enable customers to access local and remote relational data in a single application," Aser said.
 DRDA is IBM's published client/server architecture for access to distributed relational data in IBM and non-IBM computing environments. DRDA, IBM's open architecture for enabling customers access to enterprise-wide relational data across diverse locations and operating systems, is also a key component of the data delivery element of IBM's Information Warehouse(A) framework.
 When the vendors have implemented DRDA, customers will have the ability to access data in the four IBM relational database products as well as the database products from the other vendors. The four DRDA implementations are available across IBM's DATABASE 2(A), Structured Query Language/Data System(A), the Operating System/400(A) relational database manager, and in Distributed Database Connection Services/2(A) for Operating System/2(A).
 These vendors are also participants in the DRDA implementers advisory council. In that role, they review and make recommendations on new architecture that significantly extends the database interoperability functions defined by DRDA.
 Since DRDA availability was announced in September, 1991, these and many other vendors have stated their intention to support DRDA.
