                      Hitachi Selects The Mind Electric Distributed Computing Technology To Develop Ubiquitous Computing Platform
                      -- TME GLUE and TME GAIA to Drive Spontaneous, Dynamic Networks;
                      Reduce Programming Efforts while Speeding Business Processes --
                      TOKYO, Japan and DALLAS, Texas, July 15, 2003 -- Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501, NYSE: HIT) and The Mind ElectricTM (TME), a leading provider of software for service-oriented architectures, today announced that Hitachi has signed a license agreement to use the TME GLUETM and TME GAIA products as a component for development of a platform for ubiquitous computing.

                      Because of their robust feature set, simplicity, small footprint, ease of integration, and industry leading performance, Hitachi plans to employ TME GLUE as a web services platform for embedded systems and TME GAIA as a peer-to-peer (P2P) platform to drive the new distributed system.

                      Hitachi plans to deliver a platform for ubiquitous computing that connects a broad range of mobile, embedded, and general computing devices, such as cellular phones, PDAs, mobile PCs, and plant controlling and monitoring systems. The TME GLUE web services platform and TME GAIA web services fabric products with P2P architecture will provide the fundamental, underlying connectivity of the Hitachi platform.

                      "We are excited about our strategic relationship with such a forward-thinking company as Hitachi," explains Graham Glass, chairman and chief architect of The Mind Electric. "Web services are becoming ever more prevalent among companies seeking to strengthen and extend their position in the enterprise marketplace. With its new platform, Hitachi takes the concept of web services to a whole new level. With their platform independence, simplicity, and high performance, The Mind Electric products provide Hitachi with the perfect platform upon which to develop these next wave applications."
