Scottsdale, AZ, Financial Services Technology Forum, September 23, 2002. i-flex solutions, a global provider of integrated IT solutions for the financial services industry, today launched Reveleus, a newly formed business intelligence and analytics division. i-flex created this division to enable organizations to leverage the power of business intelligence to respond to market needs, enhance customer service levels and manage business risk. Reveleus builds on the proven success of the FLEXCUBE Information Center analytics solution, which is live in more than a dozen countries, and which has been significantly enhanced to further address the growing market potential for business analytics.

Reveleus embeds i-flex's deep financial services domain experience into a suite of powerful, ready-to-deploy analytic applications that enable organizations to reduce costs, manage risk and improve the quality of information.

According to Owen Kemp, General Manager and Vice President of HP's Financial Industry Business Unit, "HP values its relationship with Reveleus. The Reveleus suite of products is in use today by several HP customers. Furthermore, our two organizations are working on several opportunities where Reveleus' unique capabilities allow enterprises to reduce costs, manage risk and improve the quality of information."

"We have established a proven track record of providing business intelligence and analytics solutions under the FLEXCUBE brand during the past several years," said. R. Ravisankar, CEO, (International Operations and Technology), i-flex solutions. "We are seeing a strong need for these capabilities as organizations increasingly invest in business intelligence and analytics to address immediate issues. Our decision to launch a separate division is driven in large part by this accelerating demand, and we're dedicating substantial resources to the ongoing success of the Reveleus family of products."
