Sparx Systems – an influential player in the Embedded Systems market

Released on = March 29, 2007, 11:53 pm

Press Release Author = Sparx Systems

Industry = Software

Press Release Summary = A recent report commissioned by Venture Development
Corporation (VDC), confirms Sparx SystemsРІР‚в„ў position as an influential player in the
Embedded Systems market. The report notes that to retain market-share, “other
vendors will have to keep pace” with Sparx Systems.

Press Release Body = Creswick, Australia (April 2007) – A recent report commissioned
by Venture Development Corporation (VDC), confirms Sparx SystemsРІР‚в„ў position as an
influential player in the Embedded Systems market. The report notes that to retain
market-share, “other vendors will have to keep pace” with Sparx Systems.

The Embedded System Design Automation and Simulation Tools report, analyzes global
trends in design automation and modeling tools for embedded software. Included in
the report was Sparx SystemsРІР‚в„ў flagship UML modeling tool, Enterprise Architect.
Recognizing Enterprise Architect as a market leading solution, and the high rate of
adoption of Sparx tools, VDC notes the company has become “a disruptive force within
the market.” The report suggests that Enterprise Architect’s well rounded
feature-set and low price-point will exert pressure on other vendors “as
manufacturers continue to look for ways to cost-effectively manage the product
development cycle and develop increasingly complex embedded software and systems.”

Enterprise Architect is now widely deployed in the embedded domain with a rapidly
expanding user base. CEO and founder of Sparx Systems, Geoffrey Sparks observes,
“Our growth in the embedded market has been paralleled by growth in our more
traditional markets including the government, defense and finance sectors, and this
validates our approach to building a truly universal tool set for software design
and construction.”

In part, Enterprise ArchitectРІР‚в„ўs popularity within the embedded industry has resulted
from Sparx SystemsРІР‚в„ў established presence in the Japanese embedded market, which
includes the consumer electronics, automotive and semiconductor sectors. It is also
a consequence of Sparx SystemsРІР‚в„ў successful penetration into the global corporate
market, with well over half of the top 100 Forbes listed firms using high-volume
licenses of Enterprise Architect.

Sparx SystemsРІР‚в„ў Chief Technical Officer, Sam Mancarella, further points to the
companyРІР‚в„ўs strong commitment to providing focused tools for real-time and embedded
software modeling, with Sparx among the earliest adopters of the Systems Modeling
Language (SysML). “With initiatives such as SysML fast becoming a de-facto standard
within the industry, we see integrated modeling tool support for these standards as
a ‘must-have’ for Systems Engineers today.” Sparx Systems released dedicated support
for SysML under its Model Driven Generation (MDG) suite of products for Enterprise
Architect.

VDCРІР‚в„ўs findings reflect another strong year of growth for Sparx Systems, marked by
winning a 2006 Jolt productivity award and exceeding 100,000 licensed Enterprise
Architect users. Mancarella notes, “Our successes in the embedded market, and VDC’s
acknowledgements, reflect an ongoing research and development effort that has
created a world-class design tool in Enterprise Architect”.

About VDC:
VDC is a technology market research and strategy firm. The company was founded in
1971 by graduates of the Harvard Business School and the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology. VDC has over 30 years of experience in providing market research,

ITS Feda Ltd wins key project for Value Wales

Released on = March 29, 2007, 9:11 am

Press Release Author = ITS Feda Ltd

Industry = Government

Press Release Summary = Bristol based company, ITS Feda Ltd, has won a prestigious
contract to help the Welsh Assembly get best value for the public purse when buying
computer hardware.

Press Release Body = Bristol based company, ITS Feda Ltd, has won a prestigious
contract to help the Welsh Assembly get best value for the public purse when buying
computer hardware
.

In what is well known as a rapidly changing market, what was best value 2 years ago
could be a bad deal now. Benchmarking is designed to help people break out of the
habit of buying from one familiar supplier just because they always have. The
benchmarking process, comparing a myriad of different PCs and laptops from different
suppliers, can be a long one and can involve technical knowledge that few public
purchasing managers are likely to possess. The process, repeated by each of the many
public sector organisations, could potentially cost more than might be saved.

The Welsh Assembly has initiated a computer hardware benchmarking project to address
this issue. Value Wales, the arm of the Welsh Assembly responsible for providing
procurement support to the Welsh public sector, has recognised the benefits in
undertaking this work with a single neutral third party and has called in ITS Feda
Ltd, a Bristol based not-for-profit organisation that has made its mark in
supporting the IT Services of the education sector.

Mark Gwilym, project manager for Value Wales said, “We chose ITS Feda not only for
its high level of IT skills, but more importantly for their ability to offer a truly
impartial service. Whilst we always select partners very carefully, we are still
delighted by the ability and care ITS Feda has dedicated to ensuring the fairness of
the process. We expect this to be part of a longer term relationship”

As chosen independent IT assessors, ITS Feda Ltd, certainly hold IT credentials.
Owned by Thames Valley University this ISO 9001 company has accreditations for their
various IT services from a wide range of vendors including Microsoft, Novell, The
Linux Professional Institute, Symantec, Apple and Adobe. Crucially they also hold no
affiliations to any hardware manufacturers.

The benchmarking contract, which ITS Feda Ltd completed this week, involved the
testing and evaluation of almost 40 different PCРІР‚в„ўs and laptops using SYSmark 2004
assessment software and a range of basic visual quality measurement tools defined by
Value Wales.

Explaining the project in more detail Mark Gwilym said, “Specifications for PC’s
vary significantly, especially when trying to evaluate for best value; however, we
needed to ensure that tendered equipment had drives and processors fast enough for
the tasks in hand. They also need to be durable and well designed, allowing for
future repair or upgrade demands. To assess this needs unbiased, technical skills.”

The project involved ITS Feda Ltd replicating real world demands on an IT system,
where multiple programs would be run simultaneously to achieve a benchmark for
system performance. The machines were also graded for user friendly
characteristics, durability and suitability for use in a tough, high workload
office, whilst the packaging was reviewed for its ability to recycle.

It is anticipated that the ITS Feda Ltd report will gain the Welsh public sector all
the advantages of independently verified product comparison information without
having to lose any of their own time or money. Value for Wales indeed.

Brandedmedia is launching a new business Brandedmailing

Released on = March 28, 2007, 5:17 am

Press Release Author = Ascent Public Relations

Industry = Transportation & Logistics

Press Release Summary = Brandedmedia is launching a new business Brandedmailing
this week in the UK and Sweden that is set to ruffle the feathers of the ‘big boys’
in the mail fulfilment and distribution industry.

Press Release Body = A small company is launching a new business this week in the UK
and Sweden that is set to ruffle the feathers of the ‘big boys’ in the mail
fulfilment and distribution industry. Brandedmailing has been created by
Brandedmedia whose 2,300 strong client base already includes household brands such
as BBC, Blockbuster, Centre Parcs, Ocean Village, Paul McKenna, The AA and Virgin
Media.

The launch follows research conducted amongst BrandedmediaРІР‚в„ўs clients which shows
that 68 per cent had been frustrated by their suppliersРІР‚в„ў poor attention to detail in
creating finished product for mail campaigns. A further 76 per cent cited poor
customer service as a frustration, coupled with 53 per cent who had tested the
integrity of their suppliers’ data to discover duplicates and misspellings – 26 per
cent had never done this and were therefore unaware of the reliability of data
cleansing services.

“The feedback I’ve received from some of my clients over the last few years is that
the mail and distribution industry seems to have become complacent. Clients
complain about poor customer service, an inability to think ahead, dirty storage
facilities, poorly constructed product and missed deadlines. We may seem small but
I believe that what we will be offering with brandedmailing will shake up quite a
stagnant market,” said Sean Fergusson, managing director of Brandedmedia.

Brandedmedia was created four years ago as a CD and DVD replication business. Since
then it has grown into a Р’Р€4.5million company and over time has extended its in-house
services to meet client demand for fulfilment, storage and distribution.

Attention to detail and excellent customer service are the two main gripes that
Brandedmedia\’s clients raised in the survey. Of particular concern was mailing
poorly produced products that, along with delivery duplication, could have a
detrimental impact on brand whilst pushing up campaign costs.

“We saw an opportunity to shake up the industry. What is currently accepted as the
norm really isnРІР‚в„ўt an acceptable way to do business but, it would appear people who
need these services have little choice. As we were progressively extending our
offering to meet client demand, it seemed the right time to create a dedicated
business to focus on mail and distribution with a difference,” continued Fergusson.

BrandedmailingРІР‚в„ўs services will include:
 Direct mail – design, print and distribution
 Printing – of all promotional material from bespoke packaging to mail shots
 Fulfilment – automate or hand pack mail components of 250,000 plus per 24
hours
 Data management – including cleansing data to reduce the cost of postal
campaigns
 Storage – of any promotional items for distribution across the UK
 Distribution – by courier and freight for receipt and dispatch of 250
pallets daily.
 Dedicated account manager – genuinely so. Clients will always speak to the
same person at brandedmailing who will have built a relationship with and
understanding of their client\’s needs and business pressures.

Correcting the Underlying Cognitive Skill

Released on = March 26, 2007, 8:17 am

Industry = Education

Press Release Summary = LearningRx makes Franchise TimesРІР‚в„ў list of fastest-growing
franchises in U.S.

Press Release Body = Colorado Springs, Colo., March 25, 2007 – Franchise Times has
released its \”Fast 55\” list of fastest-growing franchise systems for the year and
LearningRx has made the list.

ItРІР‚в„ўs hardly the first accolade for the growing franchise, which specializes in
cognitive skills therapy or \”brain training.\” The Colorado-based company was also
recently named to the top 100 new franchises by Franchise Marketing Magazine and
given an Honorable Mention on the Franchise 50 list by Franchise Business Review.
Perhaps most impressive, LearningRxРІР‚в„ўs recent exceptional franchisee Net Promoter
Score of 69%.

\”While we knew our clients and franchise owners were very happy with our cognitive
skills training programs based on the hundreds of calls, emails and letters weРІР‚в„ўve
received, it wasnРІР‚в„ўt until we applied the Net Promoter evaluation that we truly
understood our level of franchisee satisfaction,\” said Dr. Ken Gibson, founder and
CEO of LearningRx. \”With the average company in America coming in around 11%, our
score of 69% just solidified that we were not only doing something we believed in,
but also changing the lives of our clients and franchise owners for the better.\”

The recent ranking in Franchise TimesРІР‚в„ў \”Fast 55\” confirms industry talk that \”brain
training\” holds incredible potential for both educational/mental development and
financial gain. Anjan Chatterjee of Popular Science even says \”Prospecting for
better brains may be the new gold rush.\”

\”LearningRx expects to grow from 47 centers to 300 by 2009,\” said Dr. Gibson.
\”ThereРІР‚в„ўs an ever-growing need for cognitive skills training in our country and
beyond. WeРІР‚в„ўve developed a successful program that allows us to fill a niche and help
our participants become better learners.\”

About LearningRx
LearningRx specializes in identifying and correcting the underlying cognitive skill
deficiencies
that keep people from achieving their full potential in school,
business or life. The program was pioneered by Dr. Ken Gibson and refined over a
decade of research and testing. Using a comprehensive skills assessment test and
intensive one-on-one training, certified trainers quickly and effectively enhance
weak cognitive skills such as attention, memory, processing speed, and problem
solving. Students completing the program usually see three to four years of
improvement in as little as 12 to 24 weeks and benefit from improved confidence,
self-esteem and overall achievement. The company guarantees improvement for all
people with deficiencies who complete the training.

SXSW Interactive Panelists Urge to Write for People, Not Robots

Р’В search engine advertising

Released on = March 27, 2007, 12:37 pm

Press Release Author = Chris Osborn/Apogee Search

Industry = Advertising

Press Release Summary = Search engine marketers discuss a variety of methods to raise website awareness and rankings within search engines

 

Press Release Body = Austin, TX – Flooding web pages with keywords is not only user-unfriendly; it’s also a waste of time. That was the message Search Engine Marketers William Leake and Kelly Meacham had for attendees of the 2007 South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Panel discussion “Making SEO and Usability Work Together.”

“When it comes to natural search results it’s really just a robot analyzing the HTML of a site, with external and internal links being much more important than the text on the page,” said Leake, CEO and President of Apogee Search. Both Leake and Meacham expressed the need for website content to be tailored to the user and not the search engine. “Keeping users engaged, ultimately keeps them satisfied,” Meacham added. “If a site is full of jargon serving as keyword density, a user’s interest and/or sales are lost.”

The SXSW Interactive Festival features five days of panels, keynote discussions, trade show and exhibition events. The wide variety of programming offered at SXSW Interactive in addition to the presence of SXSW Film and SXSW Music helps make it a completely original event. Together, Leake, and Meacham, have over two decades of SEO, web marketing, and website usability experience; and were happy to share their know-how to a room-overflowing crowd of 200+ people.

Attendance at the “Making SEO and Usability Work Together” power session was standing room only despite rainy weather conditions that dampened overall attendance that day. This impressive turnout reflects the intensity of interest in search engine marketing, as almost 90% of all websites are initially found through search engines. For those that missed the session, the SXSW website (www.sxsw.com) will be adding a podcast of the session in the near future.

As for better search engine optimization Leake stressed the importance of putting keywords within a website’s title tags and letting in-bound links serve as the main bait for the algorithm robots. He explained this strategy by saying, “Google’s search algorithms are constantly changing, and keyword density is only a small portion – typically no more than six percent — of what drives those algorithm. Therefore, the most sure-fire way to keep up with their changing patterns is to always have a wide variety of outside sites linked to your site.” Afterwards Leake closed the session by saying, “A proper site is one designed for humans and not robots. So if you want it to rank high and still be user-friendly, write fluidly and link constantly.”

About Apogee Search
Apogee Search is a search engine marketing firm based in Austin TX, and was founded by early internet pioneers and McKinsey & Co. alumni. Since its inception in 2001, Apogee Search has rapidly grown to become the pre-eminent SEM agency in Texas.

2007 Theodore Andrew Bechtold, Esq. announces that he is investigating possible
violations of duties owed to Class Members in the IPO Securities Litigation by

Litigation from the IPO Securities Litigation Executive Committee or Milberg Weiss

counsel in these cases.

Milberg Weiss Bershad Hynes and Lerach was under investigation by the U.S.
Attorney\’s office when the 309 cases and 7 Million clients in the IPO Securities
Litigation were placed under their control. The firm is currently under indictment
as a racketeering enterprise and has a January 2008 trial date. The investigation

plaintiffs used by Milberg Weiss Bershad Hynes and Lerach and the IPO Securities
Litigation Executive Committee to gain control of the case. The second is whether
the conduct of this case by these firms constitutes fraud on the Court.

Establishing fraud on the Court would enable Class members to have legitimate legal
representation in a new effort to have their Class certified by the Federal Court.

both a regulator and litigator, including two years working exclusively on the IPO
Securities Litigation. Please e mail, call or visit the website at

Press Release Summary = Tiger Woods talks about his WGC win. Golf Pro Talk at
WorldGolf.com

Press Release Body = From Staff Reports,
Golf Publisher Syndications

Tiger Woods recorded his 56th PGA Tour title on Sunday by winning the WGC-CA
Championship at the Doral Resort & Spa in Miami, Fla.

Woods finished at 10-under, two better than his Sunday playing partner, Brett
Wetterich
, who despite a late charge could not close the gap.

The road to his 13th WGC title started slowly, with Woods struggling with his putter
and tied for 10th place after the first round. But a weekend of steady golf chipped
away at the field, and Woods started Sunday up strokes on the field.

Here\’s what Woods had to say after the win, as he looks ahead to Augusta National
and The Masters in two weeks.

Q. Brett said you make it look easy out there. Was it easy for you?

TIGER WOODS: No, today I struggled a little bit on the greens today, getting the
pace down. The wind was a little blustery and I had a hard time figuring out the
grain and which way it was going, because some of the putts, the grain, like on 8,
over the years past, that putt is dead downgrain, if not right-to-left. And that
putt was in the grain, you know, coming out of the left, and that\’s complete
opposite of how it used to play. Again, I was putting by memory and probably
shouldn\’t have done that.

Q. Can you take us through 18?

TIGER WOODS: I had a three-shot lead, if I dump the ball in the water, you know, and
I\’ve got a three-shot lead so if I dump the ball in the water I try and go from it
there. Obviously the scenario is draw back, put the ball in the bunker, blast out
two, putt, and next thing you know I\’m making 7, he makes 3, he wins the tournament.
I make 5, he can\’t win the tournament. So I laid up, hit 3-iron off the tee and
8-iron and a wedge and just 2-putted and tournament was over.
