SINGLEPOINT SYSTEMS UNVEILS LEGACYPOINT AT HPWORLD.

Singlepoint Systems Corporation, (OTC Bulletin Board: SSCN) today introduced their premier product, LegacyPoint, at HPWorld 2000 held September 9 - 14 in Philadelphia. LegacyPoint, is the first event management product to enable two-way communication between OS/390 systems and HP OpenView VantagePoint (formerly IT/O).

Developed out of customers' growing needs for a tool to bridge the communications gap between the mainframe and the network, LegacyPoint broadens Singlepoint Systems' suite of event management solutions. Existing Network Management System technology never provided a view into the mainframe world. With LegacyPoint, network managers can now monitor the health of the mainframe along with everything else on the network, greatly simplifying their tasks.

LegacyPoint improves data center efficiency in several ways: It tears down communication barriers within the IT department by making problems easier to locate and correct. It enables the network manager to view the entire data center from a single source, eliminating the need for additional operators and freeing time for critical or custom projects.

LegacyPoint receives messages from an OS/390 system and displays them in the VantagePoint browser. Previously, there was no way to accomplish this. Messages can be filtered on the OS/390 by the LegacyPoint agent, or using a VantagePoint message template. The huge number of messages generated by an OS/390 system would normally swamp a VantagePoint operator if they were not filtered. LegacyPoint filtering can reduce the hundreds of thousands of daily OS/390 system messages by 99.9 percent.

Commands can be issued from VantagePoint to the OS/390 system. Responses are viewed in a GUI window. Bringing the network and systems management environments together will greatly reduce operator workload, thus freeing operators to deal with the critical problems that require their individual expertise.

LegacyPoint is scheduled to be generally available November 30, 2000, and will start at $75,000 based on number of LPARS.
