MKS to Present at SHARE User Events Conference - Boston

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 16, 2005) -

"Enterprise Software Change Management for zSeries, iSeries & Distributed Platforms"

MKS Inc. (TSX:MKX) invites those attending the SHARE User Events Conference at the John B. Hynes Convention Center in Boston August 21 - 26 to stop by its booth (#424) to learn how its enterprise Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solution provides Global 1000 organizations with greater visibility over geographically distributed software development activities, enhanced development productivity and improved IT controls for regulatory compliance across zSeries, iSeries and distributed platforms.

"SHARE has branched out to include distributed systems as many of its members have taken on responsibilities that extend beyond managing mainframes. The complex issues associated with managing multi-platform application change, especially where customer-facing applications developed in the distributed environment are connected with back-end, mainframe systems, must be synchronized, tested and deployed together," says Brad Van Horne, Integrations Product Manager at MKS Inc. "Use of a common cross platform application lifecycle management solution such as MKS Integrity Suite® eliminates costly errors by ensuring there is a coordinated and controlled management process resulting in consistent deployment to production."
