Arbortext and SAIC Join Forces to Provide XML-based e-Content Systems to
United States Government Agencies

Agreement highlights efforts in Government agencies’ move from traditional
paper-based environment to an e-content environment

ANN ARBOR, Mich., September 12, 2000 -- Arbortext, Inc., a leading provider
of Extensible Markup Language (XML) –based e-content software for
e-publishing, e-commerce, and B2B e-marketplaces, today announced an
alliance agreement with the Applied Content Division of Science Applications
International Corporation (SAIC) to provide Arbortext XML-based e-content
software and services to agencies within the United States government,
including the U.S. Intelligence Community and the Department of Defense.

SAIC is the nation’s largest employee-owned research and engineering firm
providing information technology and systems integration products and
services to government and commercial customers.  With this announcement,
Arbortext and SAIC will work together to provide systems to Federal agencies
that are built on Arbortext’s award-winning and industry leading XML-based
Epic e-content software and integration services.  These systems will allow
federal agencies to more effectively create, manage and distribute
intelligent and vital information.

“We are offering Arbortext’s products to government customers as part of our
integrated solutions,” said Brian Morsch, assistant vice president and
manager of the Applied Content Division at SAIC. “These integrated solutions
enable our customers to realize significant improvements in their
information production and distribution processes.”

Many Federal agencies, particularly the U.S. Intelligence Community, need
systems that are able to rapidly publish and distribute information that is
easily accessible, user-focused and timely.  Using Arbortext’s Epic
software, these agencies are now able to publish personalized information
directly to the Web or to an intranet/extranet, enabling customers to obtain
information as soon as it becomes available.  Because Epic is an XML
standards-based software, Federal agencies are well positioned to publish
information to other devices such as e-Books, PDAs and cellular phones.

Information exchange and collaboration are increasingly important issues
among Government agencies.  Systems that employ Arbortext’s XML-based
software are a clear choice as the standard for creating, personalizing,
managing and distributing e-content among these agencies.  Content created
using Epic can be easily managed and updated from a single source location,
ensuring the information being used is the most recent and accurate

Epic also provides the powerful capability to personalize information for
different audiences as it is published.  All organizations require the
ability to expand and reduce the information provided to audiences based on
criteria such as organizational level, occupation or area of interest.
Being able to create and publish personalized information from the same
source of content boosts speed and accuracy since individual documents no
longer need to be managed, updated and published for each audience.

“We are very pleased to work with SAIC to deliver XML-based solutions to
United States government agencies,” said PG Bartlett, vice president of
marketing at Arbortext.  “SAIC is a well-respected, widely-known company
whose staff of scientists and engineers has developed a world-wide
reputation for providing high quality products and services to their
customers.  It is because of SAIC’s strong reputation and commitment to
customers that we continue to be successful in providing XML-based software
solutions to Federal agencies.”
