SunGard Business Integration Releases New Widely Adaptable Integration Solution

New York, NY - Jun 20, 2000 - SunGard Business Integration, a leading provider of complete integration solutions for financial services, today announced the immediate availability of its new MINT Knowledge Integrator, an easy to adapt, lightweight version of its proven enterprise application integration (EAI) solution.

The new MINT Knowledge Integrator employs the core functionality of the robust MINT Knowledge Manager, providing a comprehensive development environment for defining message types, validation, transformation rules, and business logic while enabling complete connectivity to enterprise-wide applications and financial networks. This technology allows financial services enterprises to achieve strategic business goals: straight-through processing, reduction of operational risk, and T+0. The MINT Knowledge Integrator ships with an API to IBM's MQ Series, the industry's leading message transport layer.
"This unbundling of the MINT core technology allows Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), third-party licensees, and end-users to take advantage of SunGard Business Integration's proven, state-of-the-art integration solution for e-business enablement in a lightweight, easy to adapt, package," explained Hagay Shefi, president and CEO of SunGard Business Integration. "Our focus continues to be exclusively on developing integration solutions for the financial services community but, as an unbundled solution, the MINT Knowledge Integrator allows our partners to market our technology to other industry sectors as well."
Mr. Shefi added, "MQ Series runs on no fewer than 35 different platforms. Our decision to include an API to MQ Series was made to ensure that our customers can use the MINT Knowledge solution while taking advantage of the most widely used and deployed transport technology in the financial services marketplace. The MINT Knowledge Integrator also has an independent API to connect to applications and networks."
The MINT Knowledge Integrator is available directly through SunGard Business Integration as well as through their network of partners. About SunGard Business Integration
