Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from Cincom Systems, Inc.

    CINCINNATI, April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Cincom Systems, Inc. has joined
 forces with OASIS, the international interoperability consortium, to support
 the development of industry standards for XML.  Many organizations are already
 turning to OASIS for help in defining their XML standards, and for some time,
 Cincom has been extensively enhancing its products to fully support XML inflow
 and outflow. OASIS sponsorship is part of that direction.
     "By joining OASIS, Cincom demonstrates its commitment to enabling
 interoperability through the use of open, public standards such as XML," said
 Laura Walker, executive director of OASIS. "We are pleased to welcome Cincom
 to the consortium and look forward to the contributions they will make to the
 work of OASIS."
     Cincom joins more than 140 organizational members, including the world's
 leading technology firms, who use XML to solve business problems. OASIS
 members provide, use and specialize in the implementation of technologies that
 make standards work in practice and are dedicated to lowering the barrier of
 entry to internet-enabled business.
     "XML standards will define the pathway to innumerable application
 implementations.  Cincom's data technology solutions promote XML industry
 standards as the answer to making data useful," said Robert Jablonski,
 Director of Cincom's Data Server Technology Solutions team.
     Cincom plans to be on the leading edge with XML standards for intelligent
 document generation systems, as well.  According to Pat Dowling, Director of
 Cincom iD Solutions, "This type of support is the backbone for our future
 development.  Along with other OASIS members, Cincom shares a strong
 commitment to enabling interoperability through the use of public, open
 standards such as XML. We see the value in creating industry standards, which
 will enable formerly disparate third-party applications to communicate with
 each other with very little interface coding issues."
