Apr 16, 2001, 01:00 ET from iWay Software

    NEW YORK, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- iWay Software, an Information Builders
 company and a market leader in middleware that accelerates e-business
 initiatives through the rapid integration of complex back-office systems,
 announced today that iWay has embedded IBM (NYSE:   IBM) WebSphere* Software
 into its rapid back-office integration solution.
     Five major components of the IBM WebSphere Software have been leveraged by
 the iWay Software product line.  The iWay Application Server is now powered by
 IBM's WebSphere Application Server Advanced Edition, e-Commerce extensions
 from WebSphere Commerce Suite are included with the iWay Commerce Suite,
 MQSeries* provides the foundation of iWay Messaging and Queuing, MQSeries
 Integrator has been embedded into iWay Enterprise Integrator, and VisualAge*
 for Java has been extended to become the iWay Application Developer.
 Specialized iWay Software components help simplify the process of creating
 complete e-business solutions for enterprises with complex back-office
 environments.
     "IBM has created some of the best products on the market for controlling
 e-business processes," said John Senor, president of iWay Software.  "iWay
 Software has teamed with IBM to provide the link between WebSphere software
 and complex enterprise systems. Now, by leveraging IBM's products directly
 within ours, our customers get this best-of-breed combination from a single
 vendor."
     "IBM WebSphere technology, including MQSeries, is an increasingly
 important part of our customers' e-business, process management, and business
 integration strategies," said Rob Lamb, director, Business Integration, IBM.
 "The functionality of MQSeries will help reduce required skill sets and
 leverage existing investments, which reduces the time and cost to develop
 e-business solutions.  MQSeries and the iWay solution work together to help
 customers better leverage their enterprise data across all of their e-business
 initiatives."
     Company officials report that iWay Software solutions will continue to
 supply individual components for their customers who already own IBM products.
 While they will also continue to support other vendors' e-business integration
 products, the software of choice for installing end-to-end solutions will be
 an iWay Software product with the embedded IBM WebSphere Software.
