Unisys Selects ON Command CCM for Remote Software Delivery Service

Leading e-Business Solutions Company Teams with ON Technology to Ensure Reliable and Stable Software Environment for Enterprise Accounts - Cost-Effectively -- with ON Command CCM Software

Waltham, MA, January 2, 2001 – ON Technology (NASDAQ: ONTC), a leading provider of remote software delivery solutions, today announced that Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) has signed a global reseller agreement for ON Command CCM™ software from ON Technology. Unisys now offers ON Command CCM to deliver business-critical software on remote client systems, providing network-based delivery of business and productivity applications, asset management software, remote e-learning applications and next-generation operating systems such as Microsoft Windows 2000.

ON Command CCM has been judged by industry analysts, reviewers, enterprise IT managers and service providers as the best unattended solution for remotely delivering business-critical software across the extended enterprise.

Before choosing ON Command CCM, Unisys assessed products for remote software distribution - including PC-based cloning tools and traditional enterprise frameworks - from several other technology vendors, according to Hal Schneider, Solutions Architect Director, Managed Network Services, Unisys Global Network Services. ON Command CCM enables Unisys support engineers to provide customers with a reliable, stable software environment without having to make on-site visits to install programs or make corrections. Unisys engineers can install and synchronize the software products from the Unisys Managed Network Services Centers at the company's Blue Bell, PA, headquarters and in Amsterdam, Sydney and other locations worldwide.

"We chose ON Command CCM because it provides the optimal solution for delivering unattended operation across the entire population of remote devices," said Schneider. "This is a key capability that allows Unisys to leverage the power of networking to provide our customers with fast response and high service levels in a very cost-effective way."

Unisys intends to use ON Command CCM as a component in a suite of integrated tools and solutions including network management tools such as Tavve Software EventWatch and products from other leading vendors; Help Desk solutions such as Remedy; and asset management solutions such as Maincontrol.

"As e-business requirements become more complex, enterprise IT organizations are increasingly turning to Managed Services Providers (MSPs) to manage their critical network infrastructure so they can focus on their core business requirements," said Phil Neray, vice-president of marketing, ON Technology. "This transformation affords world-class managed network services companies like Unisys significant opportunities to expand their business by leveraging proven expertise and new technologies like ON Command CCM. Our software provides an open, scalable, best-of-breed platform that complements Unisys service offering."

This new agreement extends the relationship between ON Technology and Unisys. The two companies currently offer ON Command CCM to government organizations via the Unisys GSA IT schedule.
