 solutions, today announced that INNOBASE AG, a leading full service provider
 of core business solutions and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
 applications, has selected CA's Unicenter TNG to promote the full-time

 automated fashion, allowing for the instant correction of issues before
 eBusiness processes are adversely affected.
     "With the integration of Performance Neugents, Unicenter TNG is exactly

 features and scalability required to cost-effectively meet INNOBASE customers'
 critical service demands.  A variety of Unicenter TNG options will be used to
 automate software distribution, network, database and application performance
 management, as well as help desk operations for INNOBASE, with the possibility
 for more features to be easily added over time as requirements continue to
 grow.

 extent to which we can automate and improve the consistency of our IT
 processes will positively affect the growth of our business."
