    LONDON, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- This is a Global News Network Report on
 IBM (NYSE:   IBM) and Vertical Computer Systems (OTC Bulletin Board:   VCSY):
 
     Global News Network is currently doing a series of reports on companies
 with emerging technologies, which have the potential of having an impact on
 global communication and the global economy.  This report is available in
 English, French, Spanish, German, Chinese, Portuguese, Japanese, Hindi and
 Italian, for international distribution.
     Just a little over eight weeks ago, IBM announced its new Business
 Partnership with Vertical Computer Systems (VCSY).  Tomorrow, one of VCSY's
 executive officers, VCSY's Chairman of theIndiaBridge.com, Vijay Amritraj,
 will address the United Nations as one of the organization's keynote speakers.
 VCSY, in cooperation with Forbes.com, will be hosting the electronic webcast
 of the event as an example of how the Internet can instantly bring an
 important message to a global audience; one of the primary focuses of VCSY's
 international/multilingual family of websites.
     IBM, in its tradition of excellence and innovation, has always stayed a
 step ahead in its technologies and its alliances -- seeking out the best in
 technology and innovations.  IBM creates alliances with companies they feel
 have new and highly usable technologies that can benefit IBM in the world
 market.  IBM has established a Business Partnership with VCSY for the purpose
 of developing and marketing the XML technology through VCSY's Emily
 Solutions(TM) and other innovative e-business tools.  Emily(TM) is a new XML
 system software that radically speeds the creation of business websites,
 translates disparate programs and can construct complex systems dealing with
 the web that would otherwise be cost prohibitive.  With Emily(TM), different
 computing systems from around the globe can now quickly and cohesively share
 database information.  This ability to communicate between otherwise
 incompatible formats will be the common denominator that allows enterprises to
 realize the full potential of the Internet between XML servers and clients in
 the new global economy.
     For a review of IBM's three-minute presentation regarding their
 partnership with VCSY and VCSY technologies visit:

     IBM continuously promotes the creation of new technologies by building and
 developing high-powered super-computers, software, and IT solutions.
 Technologies which will allow scientists and researchers to tackle problems
 previously beyond reach.
     As VCSY quickly establishes a chain of international websites using its
 Emily Solutions(TM) technology (see Global News Network Report on VCSY,
 released today, April 23, 2001, VCSY: The Epicenter of the New Truly Global
 Internet Revolution), VCSY establishes strategic partnerships in each country
 to create a rapid regional and local acceptance.
     In keeping with this philosophy, VCSY will host a free global webcast, in
 cooperation with Forbes.com, from the United Nations tomorrow afternoon with
 VCSY's Chairman of theIndiaBridge.com delivering a special message to the
 assembled diplomats and U.N. Correspondents. Then, on the following day,
 April 25th, VCSY will webcast from the National Press Club in Washington D.C.
 -- where Ralph Nader will be one of the keynote speakers.
