Global Mainframe Acquires Xtyvia; Appoints Brian Pike as President

Brian Pike, as a visionary and trusted leader, has enjoyed a long and storied career in transforming businesses by integrating technology on an industry-wide basis and ensuring profitability, and has now accepted the senior-most operational role at Global Mainframe.

Toronto, Canada, June 25, 2008 --( Global Mainframe’s CEO Steve Turcotte is proud to announce the company has appointed Brian Pike as its President upon successfully acquiring Xtyvia, a company Pike had founded and operated. In this role, effective immediately, Pike will assume the day-to-day operations of the company. Having released V2 in January, within a month Xtyvia developers had integrated GoodLink™ and BlackBerry™ Mobile Service into the ODIS platform, allowing two-way synchronized connection to Microsoft Exchange Server® and ODIS – On Demand Imagery Solutions.

“Our business model requires great leadership,” Global Mainframe President and CEO Steve Turcotte enthused, while addressing his staff and making the announcement at his head office in Calgary. “Brian has proven to me his value. I can’t say enough about his vision and ability to achieve goals. His main task in the short-term will be to properly align our partners and integrate all assets, enabling us to continue providing solutions online, effectively and efficiently.”

Global Mainframe is unveiling a branded series of critical SaaS modules this year for the Oil and Gas industry and GoodLink™, a standards-based wireless messaging and corporate data access system, provides mobile field forces in any resource sector with a two-way connection, offering low total cost of ownership, includes software, service, support, powerful fleet management capabilities and state of the art security, including VeriSign™ and end-to-end encryption of all email, data, and attachments.

Earlier this month Global Mainframe showcased its innovative Energy Resource Manager™ software at the Global Petroleum Show. Commonly referred to as (SaaS) Software-As-A-Service, the ERM platform is managed, upgraded and delivered directly to clients online. “These days, clients do not need to pay for hardware or software,” Pike added, “but rather for using it, simply. Our clients are now obtaining the same benefits of commercially licensed, internally operated software without the associated complexity and high cost. The potential for this product is enormous.”

The Global Mainframe platform and proprietary modules are delivered over the Internet so companies need not build up costly infrastructure and support teams. The servers, applications and data are managed by SaskTel in their secure world-class facility.
