We have been migrating applications from proprietary/legacy platforms to other operating systems since 1985, and have a proven track record of success We can use our experience and tools to reduce the time, risk & cost to migrate an MPE application to another platform We have ‘gurus’ on staff, with many man years of MPE experience at all levels We understand the needs of MPE developers By combining the TRANSPORT™ tool-kit from Sungard Bi- Tech and Sector7’s service offerings, we offer a ‘best of breed’ solution to MPE users We have been migrating applications from proprietary/legacy platforms to other operating systems since 1985, and have a proven track record of success We can use our experience and tools to reduce the time, risk & cost to migrate an MPE application to another platform We have ‘gurus’ on staff, with many man years of MPE experience at all levels We understand the needs of MPE developers By combining the TRANSPORT™ tool-kit from Sungard Bi- Tech and Sector7’s service offerings, we offer a ‘best of breed’ solution to MPE users MPE Spoken Here…

In order to allow customers enough time to plan and effectively manage their businesses through the transition period: HP will continue to provide a broad portfolio of support services for the HP e3000 until December 31, 2006, and; HP will continue to sell and enhance MPE/iX and the HP e3000 until October 31, 2003 Can’t get MPE skilled resources –MPE is not considered ‘hip’, so the available pool declines as people re-skill HP is discontinuing the HP e3000 –End-of-sales and end-of-support dates for the HP e3000 and MPE/iX have been set.

6 © 2002 Sector7 USA, Inc. Availability of new business applications –How can you improve your business if the availability of new development tools and applications is limited by ISV support. As the potential market for clients declines, so does ISV interest in keeping their products current on MPE – the ROI is just not there for them Cost of ownership –There may be potential cost savings from hardware replacement, server consolidation and utilization of available skilled resources Retain investment –You’ve invested a great deal of time & money in your existing applications – why throw it all away?

Tools Based –Dependencies on MPE functionality are resolved by the use of tools Native –Dependencies on MPE functionality are replaced with those native to the target operating system Hybrid –A combination of tools and native Phased –Tools are used to achieve the initial move from MPE, then dependencies on MPE functionality are replaced with those native to the target operating system over a period of time Tools Based –Dependencies on MPE functionality are resolved by the use of tools Native –Dependencies on MPE functionality are replaced with those native to the target operating system Hybrid –A combination of tools and native Phased –Tools are used to achieve the initial move from MPE, then dependencies on MPE functionality are replaced with those native to the target operating system over a period of time Replatforming Options

Typically costs approx. 25% of other available options Existing IT staff will know the migrated application Entire project can be out-sourced, does not tie-up internal resources Existing business support not impacted by migration Migrated application can be immediately deployed Same application, but now on modern system User re-training is not required Typically costs approx. 25% of other available options Existing IT staff will know the migrated application Entire project can be out-sourced, does not tie-up internal resources Existing business support not impacted by migration Migrated application can be immediately deployed Same application, but now on modern system User re-training is not required Replatforming Benefits

10 © 2002 Sector7 USA, Inc. Retain investment –If 80% or more of the application code meets business needs, use that as the basis for the new applications – do you really want to retain the same old clunky applications? Technology refresh –Current trends dictate a move towards relational databases, and a web based interface – give your applications a new lease of life Interoperability with other systems –The need to interact with other systems locally, and those of suppliers and clients increases daily Requirement for data mining/reporting –The need for information in ‘real time’ is increasingly important to management Retain investment –If 80% or more of the application code meets business needs, use that as the basis for the new applications – do you really want to retain the same old clunky applications?

11 © 2002 Sector7 USA, Inc. Technology refresh –Retains business logic –Isolate flat file I/O functionality and replace it with RDBMS based functionality –Replace character or forms based user interface with a web based interface Replace ageing or no longer enhanced/supported 3 rd party products with modern ones Use new 3 rd party products for data mining such as from Cognos, Crystal, Business Objects etc. Technology refresh –Retains business logic –Isolate flat file I/O functionality and replace it with RDBMS based functionality –Replace character or forms based user interface with a web based interface Replace ageing or no longer enhanced/supported 3 rd party products with modern ones Use new 3 rd party products for data mining such as from Cognos, Crystal, Business Objects etc. Renovation Options

Replatforming is not necessary, or this could be the follow on step from a platform change Cost savings – no need to replace existing applications simply to get a technology refresh Retains business logic Existing IT staff will know the migrated application Minimum user re-training Entire project can be out-sourced, does not tie-up internal resources Replatforming is not necessary, or this could be the follow on step from a platform change Cost savings – no need to replace existing applications simply to get a technology refresh Retains business logic Existing IT staff will know the migrated application Minimum user re-training Entire project can be out-sourced, does not tie-up internal resources Renovation Benefits

Make the application client-server –Componentize the application so that it can be deployed on a server and on a thick/thin client Convert all disparate languages into a single source –Makes code maintenance easier; e.g. C++, Java etc. Integrate with an application server –Provide the ability for the application to be deployed via the web, wireless (WAP, SMS) etc. without having to perform unique coding Make the application client-server –Componentize the application so that it can be deployed on a server and on a thick/thin client Convert all disparate languages into a single source –Makes code maintenance easier; e.g. C++, Java etc. Integrate with an application server –Provide the ability for the application to be deployed via the web, wireless (WAP, SMS) etc. without having to perform unique coding Re-engineering Options

We know what we’re talking about – our track record and experience speaks for itself We are sympathetic to the needs of MPE users, and can respond appropriately Our tools and process help to reduce the time, cost & risk to migrate to another platform Whichever route you chose, cost savings can be realized by re-utilization of existing application code Whatever you want to do with your MPE applications – we have a solution!
