 SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT WITH 4GL TOOLS
 REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Ross Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROSS) today announced support for Digital Equipment Corporation's (NYSE: DEC) COHESION software development environment with its fourth generation language (4GL), GEMBASE(TM).
 Ross is a leading supplier of software for the Digital market.
 GEMBASE is an advanced development language that permits the custom design of a full range of VMS Rdb applications. It incorporates Network Application Support (NAS) and COHESION Software technologies and products such as DECwindows(TM), Motif(TM), ULTRIX(TM) and CDD/Repository(TM).
 "COHESION provides major benefits to both third-party and in-house software developers by offering an efficient, effective and flexible environment that carries products from design to maintenance," said Dennis V. Vohs, Ross chairman and chief executive officer. "It allows users to choose the application development solution that best fits the project and offers an integrated applications strategy that includes capabilities such as standard graphical presentation and the easy control and integration of design efforts," he said.
 GEMBASE is installed in over 100 sites worldwide and is used internally by Ross for product development. Ross's recently introduced PROMIX(TM) process manufacturing system was developed completely under GEMBASE.
 Ross Systems, Inc. was among the first companies to offer commercial accounting software for the Digital VAX computer, and has been a member of Digital's Cooperative Marketing Program (CMP) since 1984. Today, Ross Systems, Inc. develops and markets a broad range of business solutions in three strategic environments in the Digital marketplace: VMS, UNIX and client/server.
