Unicorn Positioned in Visionary Quadrant for Metadata Repositories by Leading Analyst Firm

Listed in Visionary Quadrant Based on Vision and Ability to Execute

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 19, 2005 -- Unicorn Solutions, the leading provider of enterprise architecture and metadata management solutions, today announced that it is positioned in the Visionary Quadrant in Gartner Inc.'s 2H05 to 1H06 Magic Quadrant for Metadata Repositories.* According to Gartner, visionaries have a clear vision of market direction and are focused on preparing for that, but they can still improve in terms of optimizing service delivery.

In the report, it states, "In early 2004, increasingly more organizations needed to understand and reuse metadata to support new service-oriented architectures (SOAs) implemented via J2EE and .NET. In 2005, the demand for understanding metadata beyond 'traditional' metadata management areas (such as data architecture, data warehousing and legacy applications) into newer areas (such as enterprise architecture, outsourcing and application integration) has grown."

"We believe that Gartner's positioning of Unicorn in the Visionary Quadrant in the Metadata Repositories Magic Quadrant confirms what our customers and partners already know," said Unicorn CEO Zvi Schreiber. "We feel Unicorn is leading the market for the new generation of enterprise repositories which use metadata and business architecture to actively support architecting the business, managing IT, and aligning IT with the business."
