VVI Introduces Vvidget(TM) Product Name (Formerly called OpenGraph)

State College, PA USA, 20 March 2002: VVI(R) today introduced the
Vvidget(TM) product name to replace the OpenGraph(TM) and GraphBuilder
product names. John Brilhart, Chief Technical Officer of VVI, makes this

“The OpenGraph and GraphBuilder products have improved so much that they
literally burst out of their names. They now do much more than graphing and
graph-oriented layout. For example, they are used to make general purpose
controls and diagrams and to form process control maps and nodes with
executable functions using a real time compiler and virtual machine. To
accommodate the broader features for these products we have renamed them
Vvidget Tools and Vvidget Builder respectively. Vvidget paralleling the
word widget.”

John adds: “For the near term we are still concentrating on our core assets
of graphing and combined text and graph report generation and will continue
to provide exceptional value in that market area both in the near term and
long term. In addition, in the long term, we will enhance our products into
more generally applicable tools, as the new name indicates, by exposing the
built-in functionality to end users and developers using an evolutionary
approach to product enhancement.”
