BOSTON--(CCNMatthews - Aug 23, 2005) -

Cybermation, a leading developer of enterprise job scheduling and software change management (SCM) solutions, today announced at the 2005 SHARE conference in Boston the release of ESP Alchemist 5.3, the latest version of its SCM solution. Cybermation's ESP Alchemist 5.3 enables enterprises to consolidate SCM products and simplify management processes.

ESP Alchemist 5.3 brings simplicity to multi-platform SCM systems by supporting popular desktop integrated development environments such as Microsoft Visual Studio and the Eclipse open source toolkit, as well as supporting every major operating system in the marketplace.

-- Provides developers a single software product that controls all SCM activities including: Release Management, Version Management, Build Management, Deployment Management, Approval Management, Concurrent Development Management and Lifecycle Management;

-- Better historical tracking capabilities at any stage in the lifecycle enabling developers to debug and troubleshoot problems more easily and quickly; and

-- Single audit trail and reporting database to determine what has changed or what is scheduled to change on all operating system platforms.

"Increased productivity and efficiency is crucial to all businesses today," said Ray Nissan, CEO of Cybermation. "ESP Alchemist 5.3 ensures and enhances simplicity within the data center environment. Cybermation's commitment has always been to offer solutions that bring simplicity to multi-platform SCM, and with ESP Alchemist 5.3 we continue to be a market leader for single-product solutions."
