Xmlu.com and NC.Focus Announce XML Seminar

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--August 25, 1998. Xmlu.com today announced a partnership with NC.Focus to present an XML seminar, <TAG> '98.

The partnership will diversify <TAG> '98 to include expertise in the area of distributed computing and application integration. ``Xmlu.com has been very successful in increasing awareness and educating the market place about XML and its capabilities, this partnership will allow Xmlu.com to offer a comprehensive seminar.'' said Brian Travis, president and founder, Xmlu.com.

``JP Morgenthal is a recognized authority on leading integration technologies and we are pleased to be working with him to develop the program for <TAG> '98.''

<TAG> '98 will be held November 4-6, in Washington, D.C. This seminar will focus on using XML to leverage information assets. Brian Travis and JP Morgenthal will co-chair this event. <TAG> '98 will be more in-depth and technical than the successful XML Xposed road show series.

``The purpose of XML Xposed was to give a high-level overview of what XML is, <TAG> '98 will go several steps further to give attendees an in-depth look at how they can use XML today,'' said Travis. ``We want attendees to leave this event with enough information to return to their organizations ready to implement.''

<TAG> '98 will be divided into two tracks, XML for Documents and XML for Data.

``XML for Documents will focus on leveraging a company's information through careful planning and implementation. Why is XML important in this process? The track will cover the steps needed to evaluate and understand information: analysis, organization, management and delivery.'' said Brian Travis, track chair.

``XML for Data will focus on XML's role for electronic business-to-business communications and application integration. XML is rapidly emerging in the market as the de facto language for messaging and electronic commerce. This track is designed to educate attendees on how to use XML for these purposes,'' said JP Morgenthal, track chair.

<TAG> '98 is being sponsored by Microsoft and co-sponsored by Interleaf, POET Software, Texcel and webMethods.
