SunGard Announces Technology Strategy for Investar*ONE

San Mateo, CA – 30 October 2006

SunGard today announced plans to complete a multi-million dollar project to migrate Investar*ONE, SunGard’s real-time, 24/7, fund transfer agency recordkeeping system, to a server-based solution. The initiative, scheduled to be completed in 2007, will shift Investar*ONE’s existing database structure to Oracle® Database 10g. The platform and database change will help improve the speed, security and versatility of Investar*ONE’s platform while helping to significantly reduce operational costs.

Moving to a server-based architecture will help Investar*ONE become a more portable solution allowing for greater use of the system’s processing capabilities, including multi-currency trading and payment functionality. This initiative will help Investar*ONE customers benefit from a relational database structure that will provide enhanced data access options and a streamlined development environment.

Investar*ONE’s migration to a server-based platform will be the second significant technology upgrade recently made to Investar*ONE. SunGard replaced Investar*ONE’s GUI desktop in September 2006 with a Rich Internet Application supported in a thin Web client environment. The initiatives position Investar*ONE for growth as a global transfer agency system solution.

Ken Kempf, president of SunGard’s Investar*ONE business unit, commented, “SunGard is responding to industry demands for a more flexible and efficient technology solution to help reduce costs and improve operational efficiency while maintaining large scale processing capabilities. Our technology initiatives combined with the rich functional capabilities of Investar*ONE are well suited to meet the needs of today’s mutual fund industry.”
