Sybase and SL Corporation Partner to Deliver Unique Level of Visibility into the Trade Lifecyle for Capital Markets

      Combined solution enables faster, smarter and safer trading
DUBLIN, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), the largest enterprise software and
services company exclusively focused on managing and mobilizing
information, today announced that it has partnered with SL
Corporation(R), a leading provider of real-time monitoring, analytics
and visualization software, to deliver a solution that offers unique
and customizable visibility into real-time and historical trading data
for the financial services industry. The solution combines RAP - The
Trading Edition(TM), Sybase's recently launched next-generation market
data analytics platform, with RTView(TM), SL's business activity
monitoring (BAM) platform enabling risk managers and quantitative
analysts to make better trading and portfolio decisions with less risk
through timelier, more holistic market insight.

   In today's rapidly moving financial services industry, capital
market firms face increasing pressure to make faster, smarter and
safer trading decisions while simultaneously dealing with the
exponential growth in both market data volume and velocity.
Quantitative analysts need to quickly identify market opportunities
while risk managers must measure risk in real time, placing great
pressure on trading systems to help them make instantaneous--and
correct--decisions. As a result, capital market firms are demanding
solutions that deliver interactive visibility for both the massive
amounts of historical data, and the streaming real-time market and
risk data, in a single view.

   RAP - The Trading Edition and RTView have been certified to work
together so customers can achieve immediate results. The solution is
able to integrate massive amounts of historical trade and risk data,
as well as real-time data feeds and complex event processing (CEP)
streams. This unique and completely customizable view into real-time
and historical data across the trade lifecycle provides quantitative
analysts and risk managers with previously unachievable operational

   "The capital markets industry is highly competitive. To predict
price movements and act upon opportunities while mitigating risk,
quantitative analysts and risk managers must compare time-critical
market data in context with historical trends," said Dr. Raj Nathan,
Chief Marketing Officer at Sybase. "This combined solution delivers
real-time opportunity and risk management via an interactive dashboard
interface to allow sophisticated risk analysis pre- or post-trade, as
well as allowing the development of more refined and risk-aware

   "Capital market firms can immediately benefit from this integrated
platform combining low-latency response times and fast access to
massive historical data stores with a comprehensive BAM platform that
provides instinctive context to the data," said Tom Lubinski,
President and CEO of SL Corporation. "Leveraging the sub-second
performance and customizability of RTView, and the high-volume,
high-velocity data management of RAP, capital market firms can make
optimized trading and portfolio decisions with less risk through
timelier, more comprehensive market insight."

   The combination of RAP - The Trading Edition and RTView will allow
the development of custom applications that can provide:

   --  Support for real-time capture and storage of market data

         -- Model development and execution in minutes vs. hours
         -- Back-testing of algorithms against years of detailed
          market data

   --  Support for pre-trade analytics including:
