Rochester, Minn., Jan. 18, 2000 – ShowCase Corporation, a leading provider of e-business intelligence solutions for business users and AS/400 IT professionals, and IntraNet Solutions, Inc., a premier provider of Web-based content management solutions, announced a licensing agreement that gives ShowCase exclusive rights to sell the Xpedio product line on the AS/400. The agreement also gives ShowCase non-exclusive rights to sell Xpedio on the NT and UNIX platforms. ShowCase has committed to integrating Xpedio with its STRATEGY product line.

The agreement enables ShowCase to offer the benefits of an enterprise information portal (EIP) to more than 200,000 AS/400 sites by integrating IntraNet’s Xpedio Content Management product line with ShowCase STRATEGY, its integrated data warehousing and business intelligence suite.

The EIP market is expected to grow rapidly, doubling in size from 2000 to 2002. Projections indicate that the AS/400 EIP segment will reach over $1.4 billion during the next two years. By marrying the strengths of ShowCase’s e- business intelligence and IntraNet Solutions’ Xpedio content management solution suites, this new offering will further enable organizations to more quickly deliver queries, reports and analytic applications across the enterprise — to employees, customers and suppliers. The linkage of the two technologies will allow IT professionals or business users to rapidly create reports or queries, save them as PDF or HTML formats and check them into Xpedio. The ShowCase-Xpedio solution will be available by March 31, 2000, with pricing starting at $75,000.
