ROSEVILLE, Calif. -- March 25, 2013

Gupta Technologies, a global provider of application development, database and
migration software, today announced an Alliance partnership with Fujitsu.
Through this partnership, Fujitsu will offer customers Gupta’s Composer
Technologies migration software for modernizing Oracle Forms and Lotus Notes
applications. Gupta will leverage its innovative software and expertise with
Fujitsu’s legacy modernization offerings to create the synergy for increased
market presence on an international basis.

“Gupta recognizes the growing demand by customers to retain the intrinsic
value contained within their legacy applications and modernize them to more
contemporary technologies and platforms instead of rewriting them from scratch
or replacing them with commercial off-the-shelf solutions,” said Frank
Verardi, General Manager of Gupta Technologies. “Our Alliance partnership with
Fujitsu enables us to market our complementary and proven application
migration portfolio to a broader base of customers worldwide.”

Fujitsu, a leading provider of customer-focused information technology
solutions for the global market place, has initiated sales opportunities for
the Composer portfolio in EMEA and Asia Pacific. Composer Technologies, the
migration business unit of Gupta Technologies, has participated in the Fujitsu
Forum and various marketing campaigns, and is the only Fujitsu Alliance
Partner for Oracle Forms and Lotus Notes application modernization. Through an
active Alliance partnership, customers will benefit from automated conversion
technology and a proven migration methodology that will deliver a modern
application ready for testing, customer enhancements and production.

Annette Kuhn, Head of Alliance Program, Fujitsu Technology Solutions
commented, “Fujitsu’s Legacy Modernization capabilities enable organizations
to leverage years of investment in software assets, and to deliver more from
IT budgets and reduce the risk of implementing new technologies. Gupta and
Fujitsu are now extending their cooperation of many years to include the
Composer solutions as a logical next step to add value to our customers.”

In addition to the Composer products, the Alliance partnership includes
Gupta’s Team Developer .NET application development software and SQLBase
relational database. Both products will be promoted through the Fujitsu
Business Solutions Catalog listing and included in cross alliance marketing
programs and media campaigns.
