Seamless Integration of FT Interactive Data's Prices, Evaluations and FX Rates with Icon

London, 13 October 2005 - Linedata Services, a leading provider of software and services to the global financial services marketplace, today announced that the first data feed from FT Interactive Data Europe, part of Interactive Data (NYSE: IDC) and a leading supplier of financial information and analytical software to global markets, is now available through a jointly developed interface with Icon, Linedata Services’ complete back-office fund management and administration solution.

The new service seamlessly provides prices, evaluations, FX rates and indices data from FT Interactive Data’s FTS service through Icon’s Data Integration Platform (DIP) for a faster, more efficient workflow. In addition, this proven, ‘out of the box’ solution can be deployed quickly and easily, requiring no additional configuration.

Paul Westgate, Icon Product Manager for Linedata Services, commented, "Having launched the Accredited Data Vendor Partner Programme earlier this year, I am delighted that the first two-way, seamless interface to FT Interactive Data’s FTS service is now available to Icon customers. We are planning additional interfaces for both asset reference and corporate actions data over the coming months."

This is another success for Linedata Services’ Accredited Data Vendor Partner Programme, which is designed to offer existing and future Icon customers a greater choice of data vendors and simple, fast access to multiple data feeds.
