Markee. “I/NET’s track record developing software applications that Web-enable the AS/400, as well as our expertise in the areas of e-business solutions and Internet security, provides a depth of knowledge that will produce benefits for IBM and its AS/400 users worldwide.”

The agreement will be in effect through March 2001.
