Waterloo ON - April 9, 2003: MKS Inc. (MKS) (TSX:MKX), a leading provider of tools to automate, secure, manage and control the software development process, today announced it will preview a new solution aimed at solving critical production deployment problems faced by today's enterprise development shops at IBM developerWorks™ Live! April 9 - 12 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The MKS Build and Deployment solution is targeted at development organizations within Global 1000 companies responsible for managing changes to software applications running core business operations. In this 'production' environment, the integrity and quality of software must be guaranteed. The business risk associated with introducing unplanned or unwanted software changes can be significant. The MKS Build and Deployment solution provides a consistent and repeatable approach to deploying software changes into production. Built on the award-winning MKS Integrity Solution®, the software deployment process can be secured to prevent unauthorized changes from being introduced, while providing rollback and audit capabilities to minimize risk of failures.

MKS, a Silver Sponsor of IBM developerWorks Live! (Booth # 301S), will demonstrate how this, and other significant business challenges, are solved with the MKS Integrity Solution, in combination with Openmake® from Catalyst Systems, in a presentation entitled, "Using WebSphere Studio® Application Developer (WSAD) in a Team Environment to Successfully Develop, Build and Deploy J2EE Applications," on Friday, April 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. CST (Room 271). The presentation is targeted at managers and developers using IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer and WebSphere Application Server.

"WebSphere organizations have a growing need for a tightly integrated solution that offers a process to reliably develop, build and deploy mission critical, production software applications. We have a solution that solves this need, while helping drive down overall development costs," says Brad Van Horne, Integrations Product Manager at MKS Inc.

Availability
MKS's Build and Deployment solution, a part of the MKS Integrity Solution for enterprise software configuration management, will be generally available in May 2003. For more information visit MKS at the show or contact sales@mks.com.
