PDS TO PROFIT FROM AIX SYSTEM MIGRATION WITHIN NEW IBM INDUSTRY REMARKETER AGREEMENT

 PDS TO PROFIT FROM AIX SYSTEM MIGRATION
 WITHIN NEW IBM INDUSTRY REMARKETER AGREEMENT
 BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Software development pioneer Parameter Driven Software, Inc. (PDS) and computer industry giant IBM recently formed a strategic business alliance in which PDS will pair its software portfolio with the IBM Risc System/6000, offering its resellers an opportunity to profit from the AIX System migration.
 PDS signed an Industry Remarketer (IR) agreement with IBM which authorizes PDS to resell the RS/6000, including POWERstation/POWERserver models 320, 520, 530, 540 and 550, the POWERstation 730 and the POWERserver 930. PDS will market the AIX System hardware along with its 4GL solutions to its domestic reseller network.
 PDS National Sales Manager Kevin Kent said he expects the agreement will increase PDS' market share in the UNIX arena, also that a 50-percent software revenue increase will result.
 "The Risc-based system complements our UNIX offerings and we now cover the entire UNIX spectrum, from Intel-based to Risc architecture," Kent said. "By combining the affinity between PDS' software and the open system platform, with the superiority of IBM hardware, PDS is enroute to a considerable increase in both revenue and market share."
 Kent said modifiability and portability, inherent in PDS' applications, have already established PDS' position in the UNIX marketplace.
 The PDS software portfolio includes the Application Development Environment components, 4GL application development tool PDS-ADEPT and PDS-C Source Generator; PDS-QUERY Report Writer, and the GBS and Preferred Series accounting module suites.
 The PDS Application Development Environment allows UNIX users to develop or modify application through menu-driven PDS-ADEPT 4GL, then achieve benefits of 3GL execution via PDS-C Source Generator which translates the 4GL code into "C" source code for compilation.
 PDS's Preferred Series and General Business Solution (GBS) accounting modules are particularly attractive to VARs with minimal programming experience due to their ease-of-use and versatility. These applications are multi-company, fully featured modules which may be used as ready-made solutions or integrated into applications customized to individual business needs.
 PDS has been developing and marketing 4GL software solutions for UNIX/XENIX, MS-DOS and BTOS/CTOS platforms for over a decade. PDS has more than 7,000 customer installations, and markets its software products through PDS VARs, international distributors and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
 PDS is one of the nation's fastest-growing software development companies, with a 40-percent annual rate of revenue increase since 1985, resulting in $12.5 million in gross sales in 1990.
