 INFORMATION BUILDERS AND SPINNAKER SOFTWARE TO INTRODUCE
 EDA/SQL EXTENDER FOR PLUS AT DB/EXPO '92
 SAN FRANCISCO, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Builders, Inc., (IBI) and Spinnaker Software Corporation (NASDAQ: SPKR) will introduce IBI's new EDA XCMDs Extender for HyperCard with Spinnaker PLUS for Macintosh at DB/EXPO '92 in IBI Booth No. 818.
 EDA/SQL (Enterprise Data Access/SQL(tm)) is Information Builders family of client/server products including EDA/SQL Server(tm), API/SQL(tm), EDALink(tm) and EDA Extender Products(tm) that work together to provide SQL-based access to relational and non-relational data on interconnected multivendor systems.
 Spinnaker PLUS for Macintosh is a hypertext, hypermedia applications development tool that gives developers and end users power to quickly and easily build custom applications in the Macintosh environment. With PLUS, users can create a whole new generation of powerful, easy-to-use information management applications.
 Spinnaker PLUS provides an English-like application language with pull down menus that make it simple to build individual applications and combines point and click screen layout with a broad selection of text, paint, draw and database objects that lets users create applications in days instead of weeks or months.
 EDA/SQL extends the reach of decision support applications -- virtually any application or tool that support SQL can transparently access over 50 of the most widely used proprietary databases and files in 35 interconnected IBM and non-IBM operating environments.
 Requests for data are transparently distributed, processed and returned to the user for the joining of similar and dissimilar relational and non-relational databases and files.
 The EDA XCMDs Extender for HyperCard allows applications developed with PLUS or PLUS compatible systems to retrieve data from a variety of host-based data servers using ANSI-standard SQL requests. In addition, developers can request information about the data on those servers and execute remote procedures on them.
 Commenting on the DB/EXPO introduction, John Senor, Information Builders, Inc., vice president, Enterprise Data Access Division, said, "With the introduction of the EDA XCMDs Extender for HyperCard using PLUS, we are providing developers and users of the Macintosh within the PLUS and HyperCard environment greater applications development productivity, flexibility and access to enterprise data."
 David Thurman, Spinnaker Software vice president and PLUS division manager said, "We are pleased that Information Builders has integrated PLUS for Macintosh into their EDA/SQL system. With PLUS, EDA/SQL provides developers a powerful new tool with which to make enterprise data available to business professionals." About Information Builders
