eCube Systems Achieves IBM Advanced Business Partner Status

eCube to Continue Working with IBM to Deliver and Maximize the Value of Legacy Evolution Solutions for the Enterprise

Houston, Texas. February 6, 2007

eCube Systems, a leader in legacy middleware evolution, today announced that it has achieved IBM Advanced Business Partner status based on its excellent history with IBM Systems and Technology Group ("STG") creating legacy evolution solutions for the CICS family of products and legacy middleware. This accomplishment reflects eCube's commitment to provide customers with application development and modernization solutions for IBM's key markets in financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, and the public sector.

eCube's core strengths in legacy middleware, (CICS, DCE/RPC, CORBA) and language platforms (COBOL/C/C++) combined with its Eclipse-based NXTware Evolution Platform, make it the only company exclusively focused on evolving existing DCE/RPC, CORBA and CICS middleware applications.

With today's announcement, eCube extends its legacy middleware evolution capabilities and ability to support IBM clients and technology. Advanced Partner status will ultimately help eCube's customers improve the value of their legacy middleware applications, processes and skills by using open source technology and industry-standard SOA in conjunction with IBM's WebSphere product family.

eCube has a track record of delivering solutions that enable legacy systems to utilize contemporary standards (HTTP, SOAP, JMS) and participate in advanced service oriented architectures. Using IBM CTG Gateway and eCube's NXTware, customers in the managed health services industry have been able to integrate zSeries CICS applications and legacy Entera RPC applications to reduce costs and improve reliability and performance.

"We are thrilled at the opportunity to grow our partnership with IBM as an Advanced Business Partner," said Kevin Barnes, chief executive officer of eCube. "Our commitment to delivering cost efficient legacy evolution solutions will improve the business value of legacy middleware applications for joint customers running on IBM CICS, DCE and other legacy systems."
