BULL CREATES UNIKIX TECHNOLOGIES, NAMES JOHN G. NOONAN PRESIDENT

 BILLERICA, Mass., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Bull HN Information Systems today announced the creation of a separate business unit, UniKix Technologies, for its UniKix enterprise downsizing business, and named John G. Noonan president of the new venture.
 Formerly a division of Bull's Integris systems integration business, the new company is being established as a self-contained, free-standing unit forming the basis of the UniKix software and services operation. John Noonan will report to Bull HN president and CEO Axel Leblois.
 "We believe that UniKix will continue to be one of our fastest growing markets," said Leblois, "and we're putting the structure and management team into place that will best capitalize on that."
 In making the announcement, Noonan added, "Our goal is to leverage the technological leadership that UniKix brings to the market today. We plan to capitalize on UniKix's position as a leader in the enterprise downsizing business."
 Prior to assuming his new position, Noonan served as vice-president and general manager of Bull's Asia Operations, responsible for Bull's consolidated operations in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the People's Republic of China, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. Under his three-year management, Asia Operations realized a compounded annual growth rate of more than 24 percent, effectively doubling the size of Bull's business in the region.
 Previously, Noonan was vice-president of Bull HN's international operations. He has also held positions with Honeywell and Incoterm Corporation, within their international operations; and with Burroughs Corporation, where he held sales and sales management positions.
 Noonan, aged 40, holds a bachelor's degree in economics and finance from Boston College. He is married, with three children, and is relocating from Singapore to Phoenix, Ariz.
 UniKix software is a full-function transaction processing monitor implemented on UNIX systems that supports the IBM CICS application programming interface and provides functionality to port IBM CICS/COBOL VSAM and DB2 production and batch applications to open systems. These capabilities provide major cost-reduction benefits and investment protection of mission-critical mainframe production applications and data, as well as 3270 terminal and SNA network integration. Moreover, they allow utilization of the CICS programmer and end-user skills that exist in thousands of MIS organizations today.
