DISC ANNOUNCES NEW DIBOL STRATEGY IN ASSOCIATION WITH DIGITAL

 SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- DISC (Digital Information Systems Corp.) announced today the signing of a contract with Digital Equipment Corp. (NYSE: DEC) which positions their SYNERGY DBL as the primary DIBOL compiler product for Digital's VAX, Alpha AXP, DEC OSF/1 and Intel-based SCO UNIX systems.
 Under the terms of the contract, Digital Equipment Corp. will distribute DISC's entire Synergy Application Development Environment on ALPHA AXP, OpenVMS, DEC OSF/1 and SCO UNIX systems. Digital will continue to support the current version of VAX DIBOL, but all future enhancements will be provided through DISC's SYNERGY DBL.
 Michele Wong, DISC's president, said that "DISC's SYNERGY DBL is the most advanced, comprehensive and complete DIBOL development environment available.
 "To DISC," she added, "SYNERGY's position as 'best in the industry' means total compatibility with Digital's DIBOL, product availability on a wide range of operating systems, strict standards compliance and the largest selection of state-of-the-art features required by professional DIBOL programmers."
 Peter Mercury, corporate manager of Software Product Services at Digital Equipment Corp. stated that "outsourcing DIBOL development is a renewed Digital commitment to our customers who program in DIBOL."
 SYNERGY DBL applications are ANSI-compliant and are completely portable across any of Digital's systems running OpenVMS, ULTRIX, DEC OSF/1, SCO UNIX or MS-DOS operating systems.
 Starting with Digital's DIBOL as a base, DISC added 4GL development tools and utilities to create an integrated programming environment for business application developers.
 Synergy DBL is the centerpiece of DISC's Synergy Application Development Environment which includes the Synergy Developer's Toolkit, a 4GL windowed user-interface system and the Synergy Information Control System, an integrated data dictionary and report writer. There are over 125,000 Synergy DBL installations at sites located in all 50 states and in 77 nations. DISC also offers a complete selection of Synergy Applications Development Environment and DBL/DIBOL education courses.
 The Synergy Application Development Environment for Alpha AXP is shipping immediately. The VAX-DIBOL and DEC OSF/1 versions are expected to ship by April 1993.
