H&Q Technology Conference Special Issue NEW YORK, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Eighteen leading analysts and top management from one hundred and ten sector firms examine the Technology sector in this special 428-page CHASE H&Q 28th Annual Technology Conference Issue from The Wall Street Transcript (212-952-7433) or http://www.twst.com/info/info96.htm In a vital review of this evolving sector for investors and industry professionals, this valuable 428-page CHASE H&Q Technology Conference issue features: 1) Fifteen extensive (average 2,500 words) Interviews with top management discussing the outlook for their firm and the sector. CEO William Cadogan of ADC Telecommunications (Nasdaq: ADCT) declares, "ADC is making broadband, multiservice communications happen today. We have a well-founded strategy that is the right course for current and future growth. Service providers of every type are now aggressively pushing forward on their broadband communications initiatives. ADC over the past three to five years has been developing products and acquiring companies with new skills and capabilities in preparation for this opportunity. Now that the opportunity has arrived, we are capable of taking advantage of it." Dr. John Warnock, CEO of Adobe Systems (Nasdaq: ADBE), states, "I think Adobe is the only company in our space that really offers a broad solution across all of the media types. And because of that and the convergence of the media, we really are the only company that can bring imaging, illustration, print publishing, Web publishing, video publishing together into a unified set of solutions." Peter van Oppen, CEO of Advanced Digital Information Corporation (Nasdaq: ADIC) comments, "We want to add various kinds of technology to continue to broaden our product offering. We want to be one of the first one or two names that come to mind when good customers of ours, people like Excite or Cisco or Broadcast.com or Yahoo -- those sorts of folks think about storage requirements. We're in the first group of one or two companies that they think about. That requires both performance and scale." CEO of Advanced Fibre Communications (Nasdaq: AFCI), John Schofield states: "Right now our primary competitive advantage is that we are the only vendor of digital loop carrier product that has integrated the broadband into the platform. So our product can provide services from narrow voice-type services all the way to high-speed digital subscriber line services and none of our competitors actually have that on a single platform. Bryan Stolle, CEO of Agile (Nasdaq: AGIL), intends, "To continue to focus on all these new business processes that have been created between companies, related to getting their products built and delivered to the customer, and continue to build out our portfolio of solutions in that area, whether it's build them, or buy them like we just recently did with the acquisition of Digital Market. To drive that and be the preferred supplier for the solutions that enterprises use to connect to their production supply chain." Lee Hamilton, CEO of AirNet Communications Corporation (Nasdaq: ANCC), declares: "We offer a future-proof, lower cost of ownership base station solution. It's software upgradeable to the wireless Internet, and the backhaul cost savings or operating cost savings of the AirSite Backhaul Free Base Station are very significant. The value proposition is clearly compelling." CEO Ken Bajaj of AppNet (Nasdaq: APNT) comments on his company: "Opportunities for us include what we call the mega programs in the e-business space. These mega programs are of a much larger scope and complexity than the e-business initiatives to date. These include implementing B2B e-marketplaces that will require not only the construction of the e-marketplace itself, but the integration of the hundreds of corporations that will buy and sell through the e-marketplaces. The other area is outsourcing. Outsourcing is a huge opportunity for AppNet." Kevin Kerns, CEO of Apropos (Nasdaq: APRS), states, "We believe that we can become the clear multi-media standard for eBusiness. There is a great fracturing in this space, a lot of companies that own small pieces of the market. And we believe that with our architecture and with our customer base and momentum that we have established, we have the ability to really become the standard for the emerging e-business segment." Robert Wrubel, CEO of Ask Jeeves (Nasdaq: ASKJ), notes, "What sets us apart, [is] the most sophisticated and intuitive interaction software technologies; tremendous data about what people ask, how they ask it and what they are looking for; and finally, a distribution system that can reach about 65% of the Internet." Beatriz Infante, CEO of Aspect Communication (Nasdaq: ASPT), declares: "We provide the development tools, the deployment platform, and the applications that enable companies to take eCRM and e-commerce and turn that together into e-business, because companies today really want to be able to flip between a service and a cell mode." CEO Dr. Allen Barnett of AstroPower (Nasdaq: APWR) explains: "Solar electric power products are unique in that this technology is the best way to generate electricity at the point of use. New energy technologies are receiving a lot of investor attention as people look for alternatives to coal and nuclear generation. Our technology is unique in that it generates electricity at the point-of-use. It is highly reliable." Donald Colvin, CFO of Atmel Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML), asserts, "The whole wireless revolution that's underway has people throwing away their fixed communication handsets and going toward wireless applications. There are new features coming onstream where you have Internet access through wireless, etc. So I think this is a remarkable opportunity for companies like Atmel: the strong world economy coupled with the very, very strong growth rate in a sector where we have most of our sales." Dean DeBiase, CEO of Autoweb.com (Nasdaq: AWEB), explains, "We've focused on continuing to become the dominant online consumer brand. We are already a major force in the next generation of automotive buying and we plan to continue to capture a growing share of revenues from consumers, portals, dealers, manufacturers, as well as our infrastructure partners. Autoweb has a great opportunity to be the unbiased intermediary and help the auto manufacturers build their brands on our services." Kamal Duggirala, CEO of BARRA (Nasdaq: BARZ), points out: "We were the first to create this risk management technology. We started 25 years ago, and it has been a gradual process of educating investment professionals on the use of this technology. In the last decade we've seen substantial acceptance, and the notion that this is standard practice for institutional investing. We are considered the provider of choice because we are certainly the best and premium provider in terms of quality, and we are the largest amongst the competitors." CEO of Be Free, Inc. (Nasdaq: BFRE), Gordon Hoffstein, notes: "We are the number one company in our space, the undisputed leader. We want to stay number one and we want to actually increase the distance between us and our competitors. We want to do that by continuing to hire the right people and have the right technologies and making these customers successful. That's how we measure our success."
