Unicorn and LogicLibrary Announce Joint Partnership Agreement

Comprehensive Enterprise Metadata Management Solutions Promote Technology Support for Business Goals

NEW YORK, NY and PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 31, 2005 -- Unicorn® Solutions, the leading provider of enterprise architecture and metadata management solutions, and LogicLibrary®, the leading provider of software development asset management tools, today announced a partnership.

The partnership delivers a uniquely comprehensive metadata management platform for enterprises. LogicLibrary's metadata for software development assets (e.g., components, Web services, design patterns) is complementary to Unicorn's metadata for data elements and for other aspects of IT and enterprise architecture.

Most enterprises run on hundreds of disparate databases and applications. By enabling enterprises to manage their Information Technology assets, architect their business, and align IT with their business, the Unicorn System™ improves enterprise transparency, enables business integration, and lowers IT costs. This approach is referred to as ONE Enterprise. ONE Enterprise allows enterprise IT to continue working without disruption, while adding management of the IT systems and alignment with the desired business architecture by attaching objective business meaning -- or semantics -- to data. This alignment revolutionizes the efficiency and quality of IT's response to the business' changing information and integration needs. ONE Enterprise gives the business the freedom to define its enterprise architecture without being limited by existing systems.

"Unicorn continues its policy of partnering with best-of-breed complementary metadata and runtime products in order to provide customers with an end-to-end solution for managing IT and aligning it with the business," said Unicorn Solutions CEO Dr. Zvi Schreiber.

LogicLibrary is a leading provider of software and services that make it possible for enterprises to manage and reuse software development assets (SDAs). The company's patent-pending technology provides a comprehensive and collaborative approach for creating, migrating and integrating enterprise applications for use in service-oriented architecture, Web services and other software development initiatives. Additionally, LogicLibrary's BugScan provides powerful, easy-to-use code-scanning technology that helps architects, developers and IT professionals ensure the highest levels of security throughout the software development lifecycle.

"This partnership will be a tremendous benefit for joint customers of LogicLibrary and Unicorn," said Greg Coticchia, CEO of LogicLibrary. "Combining data elements and a software development asset management system is an important step forward for companies committed to having technology support business objectives."

The Logidex SDA Metadata Library provides an inventory of software development assets and their relationships to each other, including technical infrastructure overlays and business processes. Software assets can include services, legacy applications, components, XML schemas, frameworks, patterns and other key building blocks for application development. Logidex's patent-pending technology represents complex, enterprise application environments in a graphical, intuitive way and can enable enterprises to efficiently manage and reuse software assets throughout the complete application lifecycle.
