INTEGRATED E-BUSINESS AND MANAGED DESKTOP SERVICES USING XML-BASED SOLUTIONS
Services To Enhance IT Infrastructures For Expanding Internet
SANTA ANA, Calif., Sept. 28, 1999 -- Systems Management Specialists (SMS), an
international outsourcing, systems integration and computer services firm, has announced
the formation of an Internet enterprise integration company called OneNetPlus.com.
The new company will initially offer managed desktop and related technology
services to help create the required infrastructure for companies that are expanding
activities on the Internet.
To facilitate an e-business infrastructure, OneNetPlus.com has developed a
comprehensive enterprise strategy, which includes managing desktops, associated servers
and connectivity to meet the higher demands imposed by the Internet for improved
responsiveness, availability, accessibility and security. This strategy
is delivered through managed services using a series of advanced tools, many of which are
based on XML.
Todays computing infrastructures will need to be replaced in the next few
years, said Russell West, president of OneNetPlus.com. The
imminent rollout of high-speed connectivity such as ADSL, broadband and ATM, and the
corresponding migration to more powerful media to convey thought, exchange ideas and
promote products, will necessitate a reinvestment in IT infrastructure if companies are to
fully benefit from the new reach of technology.
According to Mike Winder, SMS chairman and chief executive officer, the combined
expertise of OneNetPlus.com and SMS will enhance e-business transactions by providing a
secure, reliable, highly available technology foundation operating within a proven,
enterprise-class systems management environment.

According to West, as corporate infrastructures evolve to address global e-business and
enterprise-wide technology issues, the tools that support these infrastructures must

issues of IT operations and have in-depth experience with the latest in development
tools, West said. XML-based applications are just one type
