Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Advent Software, Inc.

    SAN FRANCISCO, April 30 /PRNewswire/ --
 Advent Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:   ADVS), the leading provider of Enterprise
 Investment Management (EIM) software, announces that Econoday, a market leader
 in delivering economic resources to the investment community, will be the
 first Advent Alliance Partner to provide content to MyAdvent(TM), Advent's
 browser-based portal that allows users to quickly view summary and alert
 information from Advent Office(TM).
     MyAdvent presents a summarized view of a portfolio manager's business,
 derived from more detailed information in the Advent Office components. With
 MyAdvent, investment professionals can quickly receive all the summary
 information they need in one place in order to know exactly where they stand
 with their clients' portfolios and their business at any point in the day.
 MyAdvent also allows users to select and define alerts that help them manage
 their business based on their unique priorities.
     Econoday's online browser-based financial calendar consists of a rich
 array of economic information including an entire year of economic trends,
 financial information, and proprietary analysis. Econoday has designed its
 online calendar content to inform investment professionals about current and
 future economic trends with the objective of identifying economic conditions
 that can affect portfolios and investment decisions. MyAdvent functionality,
 including the Econoday integration, will be in limited production availability
 later this year.
     The Advent Alliance Program leverages the expertise of the financial
 industry's leading providers of software and services to enhance the
 functionality of the Advent Office suite. The program currently has
 20 partners whose applications are available to Advent Office users. By
 integrating its partners' solutions with the Advent Office product suite,
 Advent provides its clients with streamlined processing and a reduced
 workflow, while increasing and extending the value of its customers'
 investments in Advent solutions.
     "We're very pleased to be the first application provider to be a
 third-party contributor to MyAdvent, and are excited about the benefits this
 integration will provide to asset managers," said Cynthia Parker, President of
 Econoday. "Our work with Advent as a partner in the Advent Alliance Program
 has given us a great opportunity to offer our products and services to a wide
 array of firms."
     "With MyAdvent, we have created a unique platform for our clients to
 quickly retrieve a total view of portfolio management summaries and alerts.
 And with the integration of our Alliance Partner applications, this
 information will only be more valuable," said Peter Caswell, President and CEO
 of Advent. "MyAdvent will be a major part of the integration platform for our
 Alliance Partners as we continue to add more content to MyAdvent."
 
     Advent Software, Inc. is the leading provider of Enterprise Investment
 Management solutions. The company provides a suite of complementary products
 for the front, middle and back offices of investment management organizations.
 The company's common stock is traded on the NASDAQ National Market under the
