Apr 04, 2001, 01:00 ET from Computer Associates International, Inc.

    ISLANDIA, N.Y., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Associates International,
 Inc. (CA), the world's leading provider of eBusiness management solutions,
 today announced the general availability of Jasmineii Portal 3.0, its
 industry-leading eBusiness information portal.  The new release uniquely
 enables customers to meet global eBusiness objectives through dynamic
 personalization, double-byte and European language support, and streamlined
 administration.
     Jasmineii Portal 3.0 uniquely supports individual users and groups.
 By simply dragging-and-dropping content, users and groups can specify the
 information most relevant and valuable to their daily functions, and
 personalize their workspaces.  Dynamic resizing automatically displays content
 in the most readable format.  In addition, Jasmineii Portal 3.0 supports
 multiple personalized workplaces, which enable each user to support multiple
 or changing roles.
     "In today's competitive environments, organizations are trying to do more
 with less by asking employees to juggle multiple jobs," said Carl Hartman,
 vice president, marketing, CA.  "The Jasmineii Portal 3.0 is the first secure
 and manageable enterprise information portal that can be uniquely personalized
 to meet the needs of knowledge workers."
     Retirement services giant J.P. Morgan/American Century recently deployed
 CA's Jasmineii Portal to serve as the architectural foundation for its new
 collaborative Website for retirement plan sponsors.  "After an extensive
 analysis of several portal solutions, we found Jasmineii Portal to be the most
 feature-rich, yet user-friendly portal available," said Bruce Focht, data
 mining analyst, J.P. Morgan/American Century.  "We were able to ramp up
 quickly and begin delivering the mission-critical data our clients require to
 sharpen their competitive edge."
     Jasmineii Portal 3.0 now supports localized access, presentation and
 search capabilities in nine languages: English, French, Spanish, Italian,
 German, and Asian "double-byte" languages -- Japanese, Traditional Chinese,
 Simplified Chinese, and Korean.  CA's support for these languages in Jasmineii
 Portal 3.0 underscores the company's unmatched commitment to global deployment
 of eBusiness technologies.
     NTT Data Corporation, Japan's premier provider of information systems and
 computer networking, has standardized on Jasmineii Portal as the core
 technology for its information access architecture.  "Jasmineii Portal allows
 our clients to rapidly design and construct enterprise information portals for
 a wide range of users," said Hiroshi Saito, project leader of enterprise
 information portal project, NTT Data Corporation.  Its flexible, dynamic
 personalization capabilities -- coupled with excellent scalability and support
 for industry standards such as XML -- allows our clients to exploit their
 information assets while maximizing their investments in existing systems.
 Even more importantly, Jasmineii Portal supports Japanese and other
 double-byte languages including Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and
 Korean."
     For IT administrators, Jasmineii Portal 3.0 features streamlined,
 centralized management and easy integration with a full range existing
 corporate information systems.  A Web interface enables Jasmineii Portal 3.0
 to be deployed to users with virtually "zero administration" across an
 unlimited number of desktops and without the need for browser-specific
 plug-ins or applets.  Administrators can also create visual templates for
 specific groups of users.  Baseline content can also be developed and deployed
 in support of specific B2B, B2C or B2E requirements.
     Centralized security controls provide Jasmineii Portal 3.0 with the
 convenience of single sign-on while ensuring that access to sensitive
 information is restricted to appropriate users.  Business partners, customers
 and employees can be confident that their information remains confidential.
     "We selected CA's Jasmineii Portal technology for its proven capability to
 integrate our rich, yet complex, information environment," said Romano De
 Carlo, CIO, Post Italiane, which teamed up with CA to create a regional
 network of more than 14,000 post offices linked to its main headquarters.
 "Jasmineii Portal provides a global solution that readily aligns with our
 business needs, allowing us to respond effectively to rapid market change."
     In conjunction with today's announcement, CA's field services organization
 is introducing JetStart for Portal, a packaged service that leverages CA's
 consulting expertise and best practice portal methodology for quick and
 effective deployment of enterprise information portals.  Jasmineii Portal 3.0
 supports Windows and UNIX platforms, it is available under CA's new simplified
 licensing model.
