MITEM Release NXTier Services Providing Greater Reach for
MitemView Integration Servers

NXTier Services allow any application on any platform to access MitemView services in a
loosely-coupled way

MENLO PARK, CA - June 11, 2002 - MITEM Corporation, a leading provider of legacy integration software and eBusiness solutions for Global 2000 companies and government entities, today announced the immediate availability of NXTier Services. NXTier Services extend MitemView's broad application integration capabilities by adding support for a wider range of new devices and applications.

"Our customers are being required to add Web and application servers, mobile and wireless devices, other integration brokers and Web Services gateways to their enterprises. This adds new tiers of complexity, and the need for integration flexibility and agility. NXTier Services gives our customers agility by offering a unified way to connect their MitemView servers from any such new application or device running on any platform. This translates into increased usefulness and value for their software dollars," states Martin Fincham, vice president of marketing at MITEM.

NXTier Services are comprised of software components that install on the target system, and new MitemView server-side functionality that enhances their connectivity. These components, called Delegates, are lightweight and expose a simple interface that is easy to configure and maintain. The NXTier Services design enables rapid and cost effective deployment of multi-tiered applications that are free from the traditional design complexities associated with distributed computing.

NXTier Services has been recently deployed at major customer sites like Cinergy, CalPERS (California Public Employees' Retirement System) and Swiss Life to provide access to MitemView applications from systems such as Microsoft's IIS Web server, SilverStream's eXtend application server, webMethod's integration platform and Oracle's 9iAS application server. MITEM has also demonstrated NXTier Services running on hand-held devices. In the future, NXTier Services can weave together separate instances of MitemView to create the next generation of highly distributed integration solutions.

With this announcement, MITEM offers Microsoft COM, Pure Java and 'C' reference (Win32) implementations of NXTier Services. MITEM has ported the NXTier Services Runtime to multiple platforms including Windows, UNIX, and selected hand-held devices running Windows CE. Future platforms will include the Palm OS and IBM's OS/390 environment. NXTier Services are a standard product feature and will be included with all MitemView server configurations.
