Ottawa, Ontario, Canada -June 9, 2005- Cincom Systems, Inc., a global leader in business process application development, announced today that they intend to pursue a partnership with Satellite Forces International (SFI), a leading developer of business management applications.

The two companies intend to leverage SFI’s Atlantis application. Atlantis was developed using Cincom Smalltalk VisualWorks. The two companies have worked together since 2002.

Generates Working Application in One Week

"Before I saw Atlantis, I really would not have believed it was possible," claims James Robertson, Product Manager for Cincom Systems. "They can capture and generate a working application in a week. For the markets they are going after, Atlantis is simply untouchable."

Fast-Track Product Development Process

SFI’s Atlantis application is uniquely able to capture expert knowledge from human input and automatically generate a running program in a matter of minutes. The program duplicates programming functions in exact replication using a new modeling language known as ESGATEA.

This new and powerful programming language is designed to fast-track the product development process, in turn enabling customers to focus on their core business of bringing their products to market.

Cuts Costs, Reduces IT Resources

Compatible with operating systems such as Linux, Windows, AIX, Macintosh, and others, the Atlantis technology helps to enhance and empower organizations of any size with the ability to eliminate expensive IT activities and resources.

"Cincom has proven to be a valued partner to Satellite Forces. We have a common interest in delivering business value to customers around the world," explains Dave Long, President of Satellite Forces International. "With Cincom's support, the Atlantis technology will be able to reach consumers globally. We look forward to this new and exciting relationship."

No Disruption of Current Business Processes

Leveraging the power of Cincom Smalltalk VisualWorksâ platform allows the Atlantis Business Technology (ABT) to integrate easily with existing software applications. This allows established businesses to expand their technology usage while maintaining their existing investments.

Atlantis technology will be delivered using the Cincom Smalltalk VisualWorks platform both as a foundation and to ensure that efficient systems integration is available to global consumers. This combination will bring process control to a new level of market awareness and acceptance.
