T1Xpert Selects CA's Unicenter TNG to Manage Complex Trading Floor Infrastructure

Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from Computer Associates International, Inc.

    ISLANDIA, N.Y., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Computer
 Associates International, Inc. (NYSE:   CA) (CA) today announced that T1Xpert
 Corporation (T1Xpert), a leading provider of software applications and
 services for financial institutions, is deploying CA's Unicenter TNG to ensure
 its customers meet the real-time processing and settlement requirements of
 today's securities industry.
     T1Xpert addresses such critical issues as contracting settlement cycles
 and increased operational risk.  The company sells its software applications
 outright and, as an application service provider (ASP), T1Xpert also leases
 its software to clients on a monthly basis.
     "As our client base grows, it becomes even more essential for us to
 carefully monitor the activity of our financial applications," explained Tom
 Price, COO, T1Xpert.  "Our application is business-critical -- once the
 software is in place within a production trading environment, it has to
 perform well under any condition.  Unicenter TNG will help us to determine its
 state-of-readiness at all times."
     T1Xpert is implementing Unicenter TNG to maintain continuous availability
 and optimal performance of its systems, making it possible to consistently
 meet or exceed service level agreements.
     To keep critical business systems secure and available at all times,
 Unicenter TNG will manage every aspect of its data center infrastructure,
 enabling the company to:
 
     *  Maximize system uptime
 
     *  Monitor service levels
 
     *  Help reduce the overall cost of ownership for its systems, networks,
        applications and databases
 
     With Unicenter TNG, administrators will be proactively notified of
 critical system events via integrated email and paging services.  By trusting
 Unicenter TNG to keep an eye on system resources, administrators can spend
 less time troubleshooting and more time focusing on strategic business
 decisions.
     "CA offers the most complete enterprise management solution on the
 market," said Shek Lau, CTO, T1Xpert.  "Thanks to its comprehensive Business
 Process Views, it is also the easiest to use."
     T1Xpert plans to utilize CA's field services organization to streamline
 the Unicenter TNG implementation process.  Once fully implemented, T1Xpert
 will be able to offer more precise service level agreements to clients who
 lease its software.
     T1Xpert chose Unicenter TNG for its exceptional functionality and the
 flexible licensing terms of CA's new Business Model, which enables customers
 to determine the length and dollar value of each software license and vary the
 software mix as business and technology needs change.
     "T1Xpert needed a technology business partner that understood our
 24 x 7 mission-critical needs," said Price.  "CA not only took the time to
 recognize how those needs affected our business, but also provided us with the
 simplest, most flexible license agreement we found in the marketplace. Monthly
 payments and a short review cycle are just two of the benefits we're getting
 from CA's new business model."
