Intel Showcases Worldwide Ecosystem

Intel Showcases Worldwide Ecosystem At Major e-Business Summit

Industry Leaders Supporting Growing Internet Economy through High-Performing and Cost-Effective Solutions

AUCKLAND, 12 October 2000 – Technology and e-Business leaders assembled today at The eXCHANGE e-Business summit in San Francisco emphasising the momentum behind Intel-based solutions. The two-day summit, hosted by Intel Corporation, will highlight the importance of a worldwide e-Business ecosystem to support today’s growing Internet economy.

“Decisions you make today on your Internet-based business model will have consequences for decades,” said Craig R. Barrett, Intel president and CEO. “An open architecture creates unlimited possibilities to build the most flexible, scalable, cost-effective and innovative e-Business solutions.”

Industry leaders Carly Fiorina, chairman, president and CEO of Hewlett-Packard Corporation; Bill Gates, chairman and chief software architect of Microsoft Corporation; and John M. Thompson, vice chairman, IBM, are delivering keynote addresses at the event. They join Barrett, Intel Chairman Andy Grove and Executive Vice President Paul Otellini in offering senior business and information technology managers blueprints of the diverse technologies that will help them innovate, grow and respond to the changing conditions of the Internet economy.

In addition to the keynotes, more than 100 companies are showcasing their e-Business success stories and products that support building front-to-back e-Businesses.

Intel’s e-Business and Intel® Architecture Solutions
At the event, Intel provided an update on some of its key e-Business building blocks and programs. Intel said it is placing the final touches on its Itanium™ processor family and expects initial Itanium processor-based pilots to be shipping this quarter. More than 400 applications are currently being developed, and Intel has shipped more than 6,500 prototype systems and almost 32,000 processors since November.

Helped by the Intel® Pentium® III Xeon™ and Pentium III processor families, Intel-based servers make up more than 75 percent of all Internet servers deployed, according to 1999 figures from IDC. Intel-based servers are running some of the largest and most mission-critical e-Businesses in the world today, and continue to achieve significant industry leading performance benchmarks at much lower overall system costs.

Earlier this year, Intel committed more than US$100 million and created new programs to assist with developing Internet solutions. One such program, the Intel e-Business Network, is the largest of its kind, encompassing more than 100,000 developers, service providers, resellers, distributors, consultants and integrators. With Intel-led solution centers and programs, certification laboratories and e-Business alliances, Intel is working with the industry to integrate and easily deploy affordable Intel-based solutions.

Intel, the world’s largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at www.intel.co.nz.
