Subject: [announce] Delphion Joins Open Applications Group

Delphion Joins Open Applications Group

Delphion now positioned to deliver industry’s first intellectual asset
management solution
that supports leading standard for enterprise interoperability

CHICAGO – December 3, 2001 – Delphion Inc., a leading provider of software
and services for intellectual asset management, today announced it has
joined the Open Applications Group Inc., an industry-wide consortium that
serves as the world’s largest publisher of XML-based content for business
software interoperability. By joining OAGI, Delphion is now positioned to
deliver the market’s first IAM software solution that fully adheres to the
Open Applications Group Integration Specification. As a result, companies
gain the assurance that Delphion’s software will easily integrate with all
other enterprise applications that support the industry-leading OAGI

Enterprise interoperability is a critical requirement for IAM software
solutions. As companies seek to better create, use and manage their
intellectual assets, including patents and other intellectual property, they
must enable collaboration among various corporate groups, such as R&D, legal
counsel, product management and finance. Because of this, an IAM software
solution must work with disparate systems and applications across a company,
as well as those of its external service providers.

“With our membership in OAGI, Delphion is at the forefront in enabling
companies to implement an IAM software solution that can truly be called
enterprise-class,” said Nigel Davies, senior vice president of development
and operations for Delphion, and a vice chairman for OAGI. “Delphion’s IAM
software will integrate with other systems to streamline the flow of
information across multiple business areas, which is essential to maximize
the value companies derive from their intellectual assets.”

“Across the board, the members of OAGI are the leaders in their markets,”
said David Connelly, president and CEO of OAGI. “We are excited that
Delphion is spearheading the implementation of the OAGI standard in the
fast-growing market for IAM solutions.”

About Intellectual Asset Management (IAM)
Intellectual asset management is the practice of transforming intellectual
property (such as patents) and other intangible assets (such as business
processes and employee know-how) into strategic corporate assets. IAM
generates value by enabling more effective technology licensing and lowering
intellectual property creation and maintenance costs. In addition, IAM can
generate value by helping create new uses for dormant intellectual property,
and by enabling a company to better align its R&D with strategic business
