LONDON — 19 July 2005 — Microsoft Corp. today announced its participation at this year’s Sibos conference and exhibition at the Bella Center, Copenhagen, Denmark, 5–9 September 2005. At the show, Microsoft will demonstrate how it is providing a true end-to-end payments value chain for banks and their corporate customers, and is enabling securities straight through processing (STP).

On its stand, Microsoft will showcase solutions from key financial services technology partners, including Infosys Technologies Ltd, iRevolution, Molan Corporation, Mosaic Software, NetEconomy, Open Information Systems, Saga, SolutionForge Ltd and Unisys. Sibos delegates will also have the opportunity to see Microsoft® products and technologies geared toward financial services, including the BizTalk® Accelerator for SWIFT.

Microsoft is an active partner of SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) and the company’s technology is widely used by financial institutions for their day-to-day operations over the SWIFT network. More than 50 per cent of SWIFT interfaces run on Microsoft technology.

"Sibos is a key event for Microsoft and we are delighted to be attending again this year," said David Littlewood, global managing director, Financial Services, Microsoft. "Microsoft has developed a close relationship with SWIFT over recent years. It is the strength of this relationship and our dedication to the financial services industry that has enabled our technology to become one of the most widely used platforms for SWIFT interfaces accessing the SWIFT network. Our work with SWIFT also helps us in our effort to deliver a mission-critical payments platform. We are looking forward to meeting again with the large number of attendees that SIBOS always attracts."
