SAN MATEO, Calif. -- December 18, 2012

NYSE Euronext, a multinational operator of 14 financial exchanges including
the New York Stock Exchange, has won the Information-Management.com Innovative
Solution Award for Data Integration.

NYSE Euronext was recognized for creating a system to support Web access to
market data for external users utilizing the Composite Data Virtualization
Platform that is providing organizational savings of $5 million annually. NYSE
Euronext, comprised of six equity exchanges and eight derivatives exchanges
located in the U.S. and Europe, implemented an enterprise-wide data
virtualization layer using Composite that provides consistent, on-demand
access to a range of trades, orders, receipts, quotes, cancels and
administrates data globally for analysis and reporting.

According to Information-Management.com, NYSE Euronext chose a specific data
virtualization project to intelligently store and access data across powerful
computer systems which improved the overall performance of its data-delivery
environment.

“We want to integrate data at a point where it’s persisted rather than make
copies,” said Emile Werr, VP Global Data Services and chief data architect at
NYSE Euronext. “Some of these determinations are based on SLAs and performance
and what the system is capable of but wherever we have the capability to get
the data from a source without having to move it is also a cost savings.
Composite is a big contributor to our success and evolving data integration
strategy.”

The Innovative Solution Award recognizes organizations that deployed
innovative information technology solutions that resulted in constructive
organizational changes and quantifiable business benefits. Winners were chosen
in six categories based on the solution’s degree of complexity, level of
innovation, project breadth, and qualitative and quantitative results.

“This year’s winners demonstrate that organizations are tackling specific
problems with targeted solutions,” said Jim Ericson,
Information-Management.com editorial director. “They’re often using a
best-of-breed technology approach to fix specific pain points. But all prove
that using data in new and creative ways can have a real impact on an
organization’s success.”

“It is gratifying to see one our prominent customers, recognized for their
data virtualization pioneering and overall innovation," added Composite CEO
Jim Green. “Emile and his team at NYSE Euronext have done outstanding, high
value work.”
