GOT Corporation™ today announced the acquisition of Smart Solutions

in the North American market. As a subsidiary of GOT, we can grow our
core markets, while expanding into new ones and broadening our
offerings," said Paul Warren Managing Director of SSI. "SSI's Premier
Partnership with business intelligence leader Cognos, combined with the
presence of Cognos founder Michael Potter as GOT's Chairman of the
Board, means we can join forces to bring the value of BI to GOT's
products and customers."

SSI will continue to operate as a separate company in Boca Raton,
Florida, and will become a wholly owned subsidiary of GOT under the name
Smart Solutions Inc. - a GOT company. SSI will work to integrate BI
