 'IVY LEAGUE' PROGRAM OUTLINED FOR IBM's OS/2 2.0
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- In anticipation of the


varied support needs of the Operating System/2 (See Note) (OS/2 -- See Note --) 2.0 end user, IBM Corporation (NYSE: IBM) today announced the Independent Vendor (I.V.) League. A unique worldwide program, the I.V. League is targeted to independent non-software vendors whose medley of products and services complement IBM's OS/2 2.0.
 The I.V. League will serve as a resource for participants who have such products and services as temporary employment to help train users how to operate and install OS/2 2.0 to derive maximum benefit from the system as well as OS/2-dedicated magazines. In addition, the growing area of courseware development will provide organizations with such OS/2 2.0 specific training vehicles as computer based software, audio, video, CD-ROM and laser disk.
 "These vendors' offerings -- books, periodicals, and courseware -- will be of significant value to the OS/2 community," said Lucy Baney, IBM's Personal Systems director for Programming Systems Market Development. "We're very excited about the promise that the I.V. League brings."
 In addition to conventional means of distribution such as hard copy documentation, the I.V. League will explore alternative vehicles like Compuserve and other on-line services. The I.V. League program will also be open to consultants, authors and external show and seminar sponsors.
 For more information about the program, interested vendors can contact: Melissa Robertson at 914-766-3722 or Lucy Darbisi at 914-766-3143.
