Of Local Constituents

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 12 /PRNewswire/ --
 Viador Inc.(TM) (Nasdaq:   VIAD), the leading self-service enterprise portal
 provider, today announced that San Diego's technology agency, San Diego Data
 Processing Corporation, has selected the Viador E-Portal to power its
 governmental information technology/data management solution.  The Viador
 E-Portal will power the nation's sixth-largest city's information distribution
 and management system -- one that is expected to serve as a statewide model
 for future government agency IT solutions.  San Diego's e-government portal
 represents a major step in state and local governments conducting business
 electronically, both internally and over the Internet, allowing government
 officials and city residents to log on and access key information, from
 reports to streaming video of recent press conferences.
     "Viador's scalable, wireless portal technology provides a 24/7 gateway
 through which city officials and city residents can access the news that
 affects them -- be it information about local schools and libraries or the
 progress of a locally-authored bill," said Jonathan Harding, President and
 CEO, Viador Inc.  "Working with SDDPC, we are using proven technology to
 create what may become the portal prototype for California's other state and
 local agencies, bridging the divide between people and government."
     "While the public is well acquainted with government web sites, they're
 equally familiar with how complex and sometimes impossible to navigate they
 can be," Roger Talamantez, President and CEO of the SDDPC said
 February 1, 2001 when showcasing its technology and business model to City
 leaders and California State officials including Senate Majority Leader
 Richard Polanco and Chief Information Officer Elias Cortez.  "Working with
 Viador, we have created a technology solution that brings all of San Diego's
 city information to one searchable, browser-friendly location.  We believe
 that this watershed project will serve as the technological template for
 hundreds of other municipalities throughout the state -- history is being made
 in San Diego."
     The Viador-powered portal will be a key enabling technology for an
 automated system that catalogues and indexes existing information, allowing
 electronically-archived information to be searched, accessed and distributed
 by users.  SDDPC officials cite a number of the Viador E-Portal's technology
 attributes as vitally important to "synching up" various agencies on the same
 technological page.  Among them:  The Viador E-Portal's ability to accept
 bolt-on applications such as live streaming media and stock information feeds;
 the Viador E-Portal's "channelization" features, which allow users to search
 specific areas of the portal; the Viador E-Portal's accommodation of increased
 traffic and more users; Viador's support for wireless technology; and the
 Viador E-Portal's allowing separate departments to customize and publish to
 their area of the site without HTML or specialized knowledge.
