Waterloo, ON - December 11, 2002: MKS Inc. (MKS) (TSE:MKX), a leading provider of tools to automate, secure, manage and control the software development process today announced an alliance with New Jersey-based Change Dynamics, a leading provider of software configuration management (SCM) consulting services to most industries including Financial Services, Pharmaceutical, Media, Software, Retail, Insurance, Healthcare, and Telecommunications.

The Change Dynamics CM solutions methodology is founded on the corner stone of People, Process, and Technology. This allows for customer-centric and production driven solutions within the life cycle's four change management areas: customer services, change request management, product development, and deployment. Change Dynamic's goal is life cycle process improvement. They enable people across organizations to adapt and follow processes by establishing process and procedures to enforce consistency and reliability. Technology, such as MKS's enterprise SCM system, is used to facilitate process deployment and audit policies.

Change Dynamics, founded in 1997, brings to MKS's customers a deep knowledge of SCM assessment and expertise in emerging process areas such as the pharmaceutical industry's 21 CFR Part 11. MKS and Change Dynamics are actively engaged in joint marketing and sales initiatives targeted at the Fortune 1000.

"According to industry analyst firm Gartner Inc., 80 percent of software failure is preventable through improved application and process management. Through improved and automated process and procedures, organizations can be more responsive to rapidly changing business conditions. MKS's products make sure that enterprise organizations can maximize the return on investment in software configuration management technology tools by managing, extending and integrating their capabilities through enhanced process management," says David Martin, MKS vice president, product management. "Partnering with Change Dynamics brings even more MKS expertise to the market, to the benefit of our customers."

"We are impressed by MKS's innovative process and workflow solution, MKS Integrity Managerâ„¢, and its ability to connect the enterprise through a common tool yet offer the flexibility to adapt process to the individual, team or project. This kind of advanced technology takes process automation to a new height in the enterprise," says Charles Guevara, Managing Partner at Change Dynamics.
