 SPINNAKER SOFTWARE AND MICRO DECISIONWARE ANNOUNCE
 JOINT MARKETING DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT
 CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The PLUS Division of Spinnaker Software Corporation (NASDAQ: SPKR), Cambridge, Mass., and Micro Decisionware, Inc. of Boulder, Colo., jointly announced today a major product development and co-marketing agreement designed to provide quicker access and enhanced software connectivity to host databases.
 The agreement calls for Spinnaker Software to provide PERSONAL ACCESS -- its point-and-click database query and application development tool -- as a front end to Micro Decisionware's Database Gateway connection to large-scale mainframe and mini-computer databases including IBM DB2, SQL/DS and Teradata DBC/1012.
 Also under the agreement, both companies will jointly market and sell their products and develop joint sales opportunities in Fortune 500 companies and large government database markets.
 Commenting on the announcement, C. David Seuss, Spinnaker chairman and chief executive officer, said, "With the integration of PERSONAL ACCESS as the front end query tool to Micro Decisionware's Database Gateway, corporate information users will now have simple and direct PC to mainframe peer-to-peer access and programming capabilities.
 "This is a major step in providing corporate information users with a simplified solution to their No. 1 problem -- being able to get the right information, in the right form, to the right people at the right time."
 According to Rick Patch, president of Micro Decisionware, "Large corporations have struggled to easily connect end users to the vast amounts of data residing in corporate repositories such as DB2, SQL/DS and Teradata DBC/1012. We are enthusiastic about this agreement because it provides a unified solution for making information available to the knowledge worker."
 Announcing the Micro Decisionware agreement, brings to six the number of Spinnaker PLUS Division OEM, technology and marketing agreements signed for its Spinnaker PLUS and PERSONAL ACCESS products and technology. Other major alliances include Oracle Corporation (Oracle Card); Revelation Technologies, Inc. (Open Card); Information Builders, Inc. (EDA/SQL); DataImage, Inc.
