INTERSOLV ADVANCES FAMILY OF APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT SOLUTIONS

 SAN FRANCISCO, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at CASE World, INTERSOLV, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: ISLI) announced a series of enhancements to its Desktop Development Product Family. These enhancements significantly increase the ability of INTERSOLV users to integrate, customize and use desktop development tools for heterogeneous client/server environments.
 With today's announcements, INTERSOLV delivers new functionality for the following solutions:
 -- Excelerator II for OS/2 IE, 32-Bit
 INTERSOLV, working with James Martin and Company, has implemented the popular Information Engineering (IE) Methodology in Excelerator II for OS/2. This release exploits INTERSOLV's new, high-performance 32-bit architecture for Excelerator II.
 This provides Excelerator users working under OS/2 with greater flexibility during planning, analysis and design and supplies them with an effective path from design to generation of Client/Server applications. Excelerator II delivers the most complete implementation of IE, including support for "painting" Graphical User Interfaces and modeling Events in an application. These features are essential for building mission-critical Client/Server applications for today's enterprise.
 -- APS Windows Generator
 With the addition of Windows generation, APS enables cross- platform development of Client/Server applications for Windows or OS/2 clients within enterprise networks. This provides the targeting flexibility on both the client and server required to protect users from platform obsolescence. In addition, by providing both LAN (SQL Server and OS/2 Database Manager) and mainframe (CICS and native MVS with DB2) server capability, APS allows developers to leverage their existing skills while accessing corporate data where it currently resides without the need for expensive gateways.
 -- PVCS for Hewlett-Packard UNIX (HP-UX)
 INTERSOLV's PVCS Software Configuration Management Solution has been integrated with Hewlett-Packard's HP 9000 RISC platform. This increases the ability of PVCS users to manage software configurations in heterogeneous environments. Additional platform support for PVCS users includes Solaris, AIX, SCO, DOS, Windows and OS/2.
 INTERSOLV has also integrated its PVCS Version Manager Software with Hewlett-Packard's SoftBench environment. Together, INTERSOLV's support for Hewlett-Packard's operating system and its SoftBench Framework allows PVCS users to protect their existing software investments while evolving toward UNIX implementations.
 -- LAN Repository for AIX
 The INTERSOLV LAN Repository (ILR) now supports Sybase SQL Server running on the AIX platform as an ILR Database Server. This provides users with additional platform and server choices for their ILR installations. In addition to Sybase SQL Server, the ILR supports IBM's Database Manager and Microsoft SQL Server. The ILR runs on IBM LAN Server, Microsoft LAN Manager and Novell's Netware 386 for OS/2.
 "The need for flexibility in software development is increasing dramatically as organizations begin to explore and realize the potential of Client/Server computing," said Pete Privateer, vice president of marketing, INTERSOLV. "It is essential that vendors providing desktop development solutions offer tools which can be easily customized and used in a variety of heterogeneous computing environments. With this series of product enhancements, we are pleased to increase our customers' ability to choose the architecture and methodology that best meets their business needs."
