Waterloo ON - March 31, 2003: MKS Inc. (MKS) (TSX:MKX), a leading provider of tools to automate, secure, manage and control the software development process, today announced that its process-driven enterprise software configuration management solution, MKS Integrity Manager™ and MKS Source Integrity® Enterprise Edition (the MKS Integrity Solution®), was awarded Software Development magazine's Productivity Award in the Project Management category at the 13th annual Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards.

Each year, Software Development magazine honors the development tools that "jolted" the corporate software development industry, in terms of increasing developer productivity, heralding a new development paradigm, or making development faster, easier, and more efficient.

A seasoned team of Software Development editors, expert advisers and columnists reviewed over 700 new products and chose 66 finalists in 11 categories. Winners were announced at a gala ceremony on March 26, 2003 in Santa Clara, California and will appear in the June 2003 issue of Software Development magazine.

Also, this year Software Development magazine included a 'Reader-nominated track' for the JOLT Awards. MKS Integrity Manager was chosen as the winner in the Project Management Category.

This marks the sixth time MKS products have been chosen for a Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Award. MKS Toolkit won the coveted Jolt Award in 1993, and was selected for Productivity Awards in 1994 and 1996. MKS Source Integrity was selected for a Productivity Award in 1995. In 2000, MKS's product CodeRover Browser, now within MKS Code Integrity Enterprise, also won a Productivity Award for the first time. The MKS Integrity Solution was called one of the best examples of a high-end workflow-enabled SCM solution in Software Development magazine's article entitled, "Ring of Revision" by Rick Wayne.

"We are thrilled to be honored yet again with a Jolt Productivity award. It's a great tribute to the excellent work of our research and development team, and a celebration of our MKS brand, which is built on the foundation of technology excellence. We believe our enterprise software configuration management solution offers the most advanced and innovative technology on the market today, and it's wonderful to receive further validation from the developer community," says David Martin, MKS vice president, product management.
