ICL ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS NT; TEAMWARE FOR WINDOWS NT AVAILABLE LATE 1993

 SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- ICL, one of Europe's leading computer systems and services companies, announces the porting of its successful TeamWARE product line to the Windows NT operating environment. Key TeamWARE products include group productivity software, systems management and administration facilities, networking and communication products and development tools for the PC LAN environment. They will be integrated into Windows NT by the end of this year.
 ICL is fully committed to Windows NT as a strategic platform for PC LAN-based systems integration and in particular for the TeamWARE products. Windows NT will enhance ICL's strength in the client-server environment, providing the scalability, built-in networking, security and administration required for mission critical corporate applications.
 For TeamOFFICE, the modular group productivity software in the TeamWARE suite, Windows NT provides an excellent platform for implementing scalable groupware solutions. The Windows NT version of TeamOFFICE was previewed at the Windows World '93 conference in May. The product will ship worldwide during the fourth quarter of 1993.
 TeamCOMMS Enterprise Connectivity Services (ECS), another TeamWARE product, further complements Windows NT by providing users with increased connectivity. ECS integrates major communication architectures (SNA, OSI, TCP/IP) in a powerful package. This enables implementation of cost-efficient and scalable data communication solutions, which range from stand-alone Windows/Windows NT workstations to powerful communications servers for large PC LANs with several hundred users. The Windows NT version of ECS will also ship worldwide during the fourth quarter.
 TeamCARE Advanced Systems Management (ASM), another product in the TeamWARE family, has been shipping for two years and is currently installed with several major customers in Europe. ICL's early start to market Windows NT technology has already resulted in a major contract with the Union Bank of Finland. This deal includes the delivery of more than 600 Windows NT Advanced Servers serving more than 6,500 Windows workstations. ICL's delivery of the new enhanced computing environment will enable the Union Bank of Finland to continue deploying client- server computing, a strategy the bank began in 1986.
 Paul Maritz, senior vice president, Systems Division, Microsoft Corp., said, "TeamWARE's enterprise-wide client-server capability takes full advantage of Windows NT's strengths for business computing systems. We have worked closely with ICL to ensure that Windows NT provides the scalability, performance, reliability, security and systems management features required to satisfy ICL's European customers."
