Thanks For A Great Year! Tech Resource Zone Table of Contents Masthead

I would like to thank all our loyal BASIS customers for helping make 1999 the best year ever for BASIS. Thanks to you, our customers, our revenue was the highest since the company was formed in 1985.

In 1999, we introduced significant enhancements to all our products, including

  • Highly recoverable MKEYED files, along with a new set of high-speed, file-corruption recovery utilities
  • 64-bit file system support that gives you virtually unlimited file size on UNIX platforms that support large files
  • Modern license management through FLEXlm, which allows licensed users to float across multiple servers
  • A new stable of GUI development tools that assist in migrating PRO/5® character code to Visual PRO/5® GUI programs
  • Powerful Visual PRO/5 enhancements that enable developers to create the most modern look and feel of any Business Basic available

At our recent technical conference, TechCon99, we introduced our next major product line, BBj, to much excitement among conference participants. BBj delivers on the BASIS promise of platform independence, enabling your GUI applications to run on Microsoft Windows, UNIX and in a Web browser.

This year, many of our customers confirmed that it is easier to migrate from PRO/5 to Visual PRO/5 than to rewrite an existing application. We expect many more developers to migrate to Visual PRO/5 in 2000. Once in Visual PRO/5, the market for these applications will be dramatically expanded. Visual PRO/5 applications will be able to move to BBj and, therefore, run on many more platforms. These applications or key portions of them will be able to run in a Web browser to meet the demands of e-business.

1999 was a great year at BASIS. 2000 will be even better, as we continue our commitment to provide you, our customers, with the tools you need to create the most cost-effective enterprise solutions for your customers.

George Hight, President
