SYMBOL TECHNOLOGIES AND COMPUTER ASSOCIATES ANNOUNCE STRATEGIC
 ALLIANCE TO DEVELOP BAR CODE-BASED SOLUTIONS FOR CA SOFTWARE
 BOHEMIA, N.Y., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Symbol Technologies Inc. (NYSE: SBL) and Computer Associates International Inc. (NYSE: CA) today announced that the companies have signed an agreement to provide bar code-based solutions for a wide range of CA software products.
 The agreement will enable clients of CA to seamlessly implement bar code-based data capture solutions from among the full line of Symbol products and services, as they continue to build on their existing computer systems or platforms.
 Under the agreement, the two Long Island, N.Y.-based companies will share technology, marketing and sales expertise. Symbol Technologies is the world leader in bar code-based data capture systems. Computer Associates, headquartered in Islandia, is the world's leading independent provider of systems management, database management, application development and business applications software.
 "Our clients will realize immediate benefits in areas that can utilize data capture technology," said Charles B. Wang, chairman and CEO, Computer Associates. "Wherever there is a need to minimize manual data entry, paper processing, or item tracking, bar code data capture is of profound benefit. This alliance with Symbol will help our clients implement this technology smoothly."
 "This business partnership represents a fundamental widening of bar code data capture into mainstream computing environments," said Jerome Swartz, chairman and CEO, Symbol Technologies. "CA's broad range of software products provide an ideal platform with which to enhance productivity through the addition of bar code data capture solutions."
 For example, users of ACCPAC Plus and ACCPAC BPI Accounting, the top selling desktop accounting software in North America, can eliminate keypunch errors on inventory items by using bar code technology for order entry and physical inventory.
 Customers using CA-NETMAN, CA's data center administration software for tracking computer programs and applications, can manage hardware assets through a common interface, reducing time and increasing accuracy.
 Users of CA-ASM/Workstation can use bar coding to track the physical movement of tape, helping to ensure that critical media such as backup files used for disaster recovery are properly selected and packaged for offsite storage and retrieval.
 Symbol Technologies Inc. is the world leader in bar code-based data capture systems with nearly two million scanners and terminals installed. The company designs, manufactures and markets bar code reading equipment, portable data terminals and radio frequency data communications products which are used as strategic building blocks in technology systems for retailing, package and parcel delivery, warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, health care and other industries.
 Computer Associates International, Inc. is the world's leading independent provider of integrated systems management, application development and business applications software. These programs operate across a spectrum of mainframe, midrange and desktop computers. The company services business, government, scientific and educational organizations through direct operations in 27 countries.
