Sybase and Bravura Solutions Partner For Financial Services Solutions

Sydney, Australia — 6 March 2006 — Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), a leading enterprise infrastructure and mobile software company, today announced Bravura Solutions Limited has entered into a partnership with Sybase Australia Pty Limited (Sybase) to deliver its Talisman suite of financial services solutions on the high-availability, high-performance Sybase® Adaptive Server® Enterprise (ASE) database platform.

Headquartered in Sydney with nine offices worldwide, Bravura Solutions Limited (Bravura) is one of Asia Pacific’s leading providers of superannuation, life insurance and wealth management applications. Their Talisman suite is a leading edge solution for boutiques and mid-tier organisations, for the administration of personal retirement savings, investment and risk products.

Almost seven million superannuation, life insurance and investment accounts are administered on Bravura software through 90 financial institutions and corporate superannuation funds. In addition, four of Australia’s top five third-party administrators use Bravura applications.

Bravura selected Sybase as the platform for its Talisman suite due to the ease of development, deployment and scalability offered by the Sybase platform, which includes ASE, Replication Server® and PowerBuilder®, as well as Sybase’s track record of zero data loss.

Sybase ASE is an enterprise-class relational database management system, which provides IT managers with a cost-effective platform to meet the increasing demands of large databases and high transaction volumes in organisations.

Additionally, Sybase Replication Server enables data to be moved and synchronised enterprise-wide, while Sybase PowerBuilder simplifies the development and deployment of enterprise level data-driven applications.

“This partnership extends the reliance of the top 10 global banks and securities firms on Sybase to many of Australia’s leading financial institutions and superannuation administrators. Sybase’s platform provides a best-of-breed solution for the global management of our Talisman suite of products,” said Iain Dunstan, CEO of Bravura Solutions.

“Sybase is pleased to partner with Bravura to further enhance the Talisman solutions suite. With a number of recent staff appointments further strengthening Sybase in ANZ, this partnership continues our aggressive market growth strategy and provides a platform to build on our success in key vertical markets, such as financial services,” said Rob Zalums, Managing Director, Sybase Australia and New Zealand.
