SunGard’s Phase3 and Related Broker/Dealer Solutions Achieve SEI’s CMMI® Level 2 Rating

Burlington, MA – 3 October 2006

SunGard announced today that it has achieved the SEI CMMI® (Software Engineering Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration) Level 2 Rating for its Phase3 real-time, multi-asset and multi-currency securities processing solution and related broker/dealer systems. An integrated, enterprise quality model used to enhance an organization’s ability to manage project activities toward success, the CMMI appraisal rating recognizes SunGard as a quality provider of systems engineering, software development and IT services.

In addition to Phase3, SunGard’s Margin Advisor real-time cross-asset margin solution, STN Settlements central interface management system, and StreamCore consolidated operational database, as well as all customized solutions, were appraised and confirmed by Comskil, an SEI partner authorized to lead Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) appraisals, as successfully achieving CMMI Level 2 requirements.

Galina Knopman, president of Comskil, Inc., said, “SunGard’s commitment to continuous improvement was demonstrated in the CMMI Level 2 appraisal. SunGard has developed a solid methodology that its development projects are following to help ensure a quality product.”

Achievement of CMMI Level 2 culminates in the successful evaluation of an organization’s ability to administer requirements management, project planning, project monitoring and control, supplier agreement management, measurements and analysis, process and product quality assurance, and configuration management.

Gerard Murphy, president of SunGard’s Phase3 business unit, said, “Our decision to pursue the CMMI Level 2 rating comes from our commitment to the highest software quality and customer satisfaction, and timely delivery. By achieving this rating, we have a shared vision across the organization to deliver greater value to our customers in a more timely and productive fashion.”

SEI is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and operated by Carnegie Mellon University. Originally commissioned by the DoD to help them qualify software vendors’ capabilities, CMMI is used by organizations worldwide to help them achieve product and process improvements.
