Partners of Misys Converge on Dubai to Take Part in First Middle East and Africa Partner Advisory Council

Dubai - 7 October 2009

Misys plc (LSE: MSY), the global application software and services company, has just held its first Partner Advisory Council for The Middle East and Africa, attended by more than 30 of its partners from the region.

Misys has a robust global partnership programme that enables and rewards partner investments, ensuring that Misys and its partners work hand-in-hand to the benefit of customers. The partner network in The Middle East and Africa (MEA) has been established for many years, but in the past two years there has been a renewed focus to provide support and resources to grow the business with existing partners and attract new ones.

Misys hosted its first MEA Partner Advisory Council, inviting its network of partners to participate in two days of meetings and workshops to build on these relationships and continue to build out the value we jointly bring our customers. The Advisory Council's sessions provided an open forum for the partners to share their market expertise and experiences and work with Misys towards greater collaboration together. Misys presented the latest developments and innovations in its solution portfolio and discussed how these solutions benefit customers in specific markets.

Among the organisations attending the two-day event were global partners, such as IBM and HCL, regional consulting partners and systems integrators, some of whom won awards for their progress and results for the region, including Computer Business Machines (CBM), Union System Limited (USL) and Yemen Computer Company (YCC).

Bob McCormick, VP, Global Alliances, Misys comments, "Misys has been an integral part of the banking infrastructure in the Middle East and Africa for more than 27 years, all the while providing solutions to our customers that deliver value to their businesses. We have successfully worked with partners for many years to extend our reach and provide value- add services to our customers. We continue to build out our world-class partner ecosystem, providing our customers with additional resource and skills specific to their organisations. We are delighted to have been able to host so many of our important partners in Dubai, through whom we will continue to add value to our customers, capture market opportunity and improve performance, through a single joined-up team."
