Eagle Releases Version 9.0



    Expanded Architecture Supports Latest Platforms; Solutions Offer Enhanced
    Usability, More Flexibility, and Swaps Support

    BOSTON, June 11 /CNW/ -- Eagle Investment Systems LLC, a leading provider
of financial services technology and a subsidiary of The Bank of New York
Mellon, today announced the availability of Eagle Version 9.0 (V9.0), a major
technical and functional upgrade of its integrated suite of data management,
investment accounting, and performance measurement solutions. In addition to
new functionality added across the suite, Eagle has significantly enhanced the
technical platform to provide better performance, usability, and more
technical options to clients.
    "It's widely known in the industry that Eagle is committed to research
and development of our products, and this release represents many years of
continuous investment. As a result, this latest version offers new
functionality around supporting complex instrument types," said John Lehner,
President of Eagle Investment Systems. "We've also expanded our technical
platforms and feel that when clients are ready to upgrade to a new platform,
we're ready to help them make that transition. We have already seen a number
of clients move toward upgrading on Linux."
    Eagle continually evaluates and integrates new technologies to support
and enhance the system architecture that underlies its investment management
solutions. V9.0 supports current versions of operating systems and databases
to ensure higher availability, enhanced performance and a secure foundation to
run all applications. This latest version supports Sun Solaris, Microsoft
Windows, and Linux operating systems and Oracle 10g and Microsoft SQL Server
2005 databases.
    The functionality enhancements in V9.0 were based on a number of factors
including input from clients and necessary support for changing industry
regulations. New functionality has been added across all of Eagle solutions.

    
    -- Data Management offers improved usability across the workflows,
       providing instinctive navigation. It also offers a redesigned rules
       editor for more intuitive interaction. New features include the
       ability to handle multi-leg swaps for derivatives, a pricing option
       for direct access to pricing information and the ability to make
       modifications, which enables access to readily-available audit
       information.

    -- Investment Accounting delivers new functionality to support the
       processing and settlement of swaps. New features were added to Eagle's
       Mutual Fund Accounting solution to support clients that work with third
       party administrators and investment managers. This latest version
       provides the ability to conduct more in-depth analysis of data for
       dissemination to a client's various audiences. For Eagle's Insurance
       Accounting solution, the latest version supports the most recent
       directives from regulators.

    -- The Performance Measurement suite now provides a dynamic performance
       analysis capability. This functionality was introduced to enable
       clients to regroup and filter security level performance at any time
       to support ad hoc analysis. The workflow around the GIPS(R) composite
       management module now enables an end-to-end solution to help clients
       maintain the composite through an automated process all the way
       through to creating necessary disclosures. The performance attribution
       module was expanded to include additional methodologies that helps
       meet both client and evolving industry requirements for both equity
       and fixed income attribution models.

    -- Information Delivery, a key component of the data management solution,
       which provides capabilities for reporting and dissemination of
       information, delivers a number of new packaged options for viewing and
       receiving information in V9.0. The solution was enhanced to allow more
       points of flexibility to enable clients to generate multiple views of
       data through the Eagle Data Mart, a tool enabling users to define
       their universe of reportable data and, in turn, deliver this enriched
       data to any downstream system or application.
