 SYSTEMS CENTER TEAMS UP WITH HITACHI,
 FORTIFIES PRESENCE IN JAPAN
 TOKYO, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Systems Center, Inc. (Reston, Va.) (NYSE: SMX), a leader in software for multi-vendor computing environments, today announced an agreement with Hitachi, Ltd. (Tokyo) (NYSE: HIT), a major computer manufacturer and one of the world's largest corporations, to adapt Systems Center's network management software to the VOS3 operating system used on Hitachi mainframe computers. The Hitachi agreement is the latest in a series of technology and marketing agreements between Systems Center and major computer vendors, including AT&T, Digital, Fujitsu and Tandem.
 The relationship with Hitachi further positions Systems Center, which signed a similar agreement with Fujitsu in 1991, for software leadership in Japan. The company established an office in Tokyo in 1990 and added an Osaka office in 1991. According to Robert E. Cook, Systems Center's chairman and CEO, Japan provides one of the largest market opportunities in the world for Systems Center. He explains that the relationships established with Hitachi and Fujitsu, coupled with Systems Center's local representation, give the company a unique opportunity to establish itself as the leader in multi-vendor systems and network management in Japan and in other areas of the world as well.
 "We are very pleased to have this opportunity to work with Systems Center to provide new system capabilities to our customers," said Hirotaka Usuda, manager of the Network Systems Department of Hitachi, Ltd. "Systems Center's NET/MASTER software is building an excellent reputation in Japan, as elsewhere, and this agreement is the direct result of customer demand from Japan's largest corporations. We believe NET/MASTER is one of the world's leading products for network and systems management."
 Systems Center has built a worldwide reputation for leadership in multi-platform systems and network management. Its Advanced Systems Management technology is currently being leveraged by several leading computer manufacturers in Japan and the United States, including Digital, Tandem, Fujitsu and AT&T. Together with Hitachi, Systems Center will extend these capabilities to provide VOS3 customers with a flexible, powerful solution for network management.
 "Japan's information technology market is second in size only to the United States," said Cook. "Companies based in Japan but operating globally are household names -- Sony, Panasonic, Toyota. These companies are faced with unique problems that Systems Center's software is well equipped to address. Our new alliance with Hitachi helps us to develop new products better targeted to the requirements of our customers in Japan and elsewhere."
 Hitachi will provide Systems Center with engineering and marketing support, as well as other resources designed to allow the VOS3 implementation of NET/MASTER to take full advantage of the powerful capabilities in Hitachi mainframes using either ECS/VTAM or XNF. The resulting version of the NET/MASTER product will give Hitachi customers comprehensive command and control of network management functions. In addition, customers will be able to customize applications using NET/MASTER Network Control Language (NCL) software to suit their particular needs.
 Systems Center has established itself as a world leader in heterogeneous systems and network management software. In addition to Japan, the company has established major market presence in Europe, Latin America, the Pacific Rim and North America. Its customer base is comprised of leading global companies.
 Hitachi, Ltd., headquartered in Tokyo, is one of the world's largest electronics and electrical equipment manufacturers, with operations extending to computers, semiconductors, household appliances, power generating equipment and industrial machinery. Hitachi's 1990 sales totalled $54.9 billion.
 Systems Center develops, markets and supports systems and network software. The company's products assist in the automation and control of mixed computing environments, and are marketed in 60 countries worldwide.
