<p>DSTi to add complex analytics functionality for large scale time series data across investment data solutions worldwide</p>
<p>Sydney, 9 November 2005 – DST International (DSTi) – today announced that it has signed an exclusive global agreement with Xenomorph to embed Xenomorph''s market leading time series data management functionality into DSTi''s Investment Data Solutions. DSTi is the leading provider of business solutions for the institutional investment management industry.</p>
<p>This arrangement will allow DSTi to exclusively use and build upon the Xenomorph technology in the fund management market to target the convergence of front-, mid- and back-office investment data needs.</p>
<p>Xenomorph’s TimeScape technology delivers high performance storage and retrieval of mass time-series, matrix and curve data and high end instrument analytics. Behind TimeScape is the XDB, an object model database optimised to support storage, manipulation and retrieval of large scale time-series data.

<p>Ian Mathieson, CEO DSTi Australia and New Zealand said, “The requirement for true time series data management is increasing in importance in the fund management industry. The functional silos in fund management are breaking down and the distinction between back office record keeping, mid office risk and performance and front office quant and research functions are disappearing. By embedding Xenomorph’s technology into DSTi’s Investment Data Solutions, DSTi will be able to offer an integrated data management platform that serves the needs of the entire investment management enterprise.”</p>
<p>Greg Johnson, Xenomorph’s COO, says: “We are delighted to be working with such a global market leader in the asset management arena.
