 DISC TO PORT ITS DIBOL TO DIGITAL'S ALPHA
 SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- DISC (Digital


Information Systems Corp.) announced that Digital Equipment Corp. has chosen DISC's Synergy DBL to bring DIBOL to Digital's new Alpha platforms on both DEC OSF/1 and VMS operating systems. Using Digital's DIBOL language as a base, DISC has added 4GL development tools and utilities to create an integrated programming environment for business application developers.
 "We believe that DISC's Synergy DBL represents the most comprehensive and complete DIBOL development environment available," stated Bill Demmer, vice president of Digital's VAX VMS Systems and Servers Group. "Not only is Synergy DBL compliant with ANSI DIBOL 88 and 92, but business software code written with Synergy DBL is completely portable across all of Digital's hardware platforms running VMS, ULTRIX or DEC OSF/1, SCO UNIX, and MS-DOS operating systems."
 Synergy DBL is the centerpiece of DISC's Synergy Application Development Environment which includes: Synergy Developer's Toolkit, a 4GL windowed user-interface system; Synergy Information Control System, an integrated data dictionary and report writer; and Down To Earth Business Software, a comprehensive set of 12 horizontal accounting packages. There are over 100,000 Synergy DBL installations at sites located in all 50 states and in 53 nations.
 "The port to Alpha represents our continuing commitment to make DIBOL/Synergy DBL the most portable, most productive, and most comprehensive business application development language," stated Michele Wong, DISC's president. "Our Synergy product line offers the developer a wide variety of operating systems and hardware on which to market software. The Alpha port keeps our developers on the leading edge of hardware technology."
 The Synergy DBL Alpha product will be available when volume shipping of the Alpha machine commences.
