ACI Signs Partnership Agreement to Leverage Metatomix's Semantic Platform

Metatomix's Semantic Services Solution Provides ACI With an Enterprise-Class Platform to Enrich Data Integration Capabilities, Enabling Richer, More Comprehensive Case Data

DEDHAM, MA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - Metatomix, Inc., a leading provider of semantic solutions to financial services, justice and public safety, manufacturing and life sciences organizations, today announced it has entered into a partnership with ACI Worldwide, Inc. ACI provides more than 800 customers in 86 countries with risk and fraud management solutions, electronic payment processing, back office systems automation and application infrastructure tools, utilities and services.

The announcement comes as Metatomix is set to play a prominent role at the 2008 Semantic Technology Conference, a premier industry event showcasing innovation in semantic technology (please see separate press release issued today, "Metatomix Takes Center Stage at the 2008 Semantic Technology Conference.") [http://www2.marketwire.com/mw/release_html_b1?release_id=396237]

ACI will leverage the Metatomix semantic platform across its extensive suite of payment applications to provide their customers with enhanced data integration and presentation capabilities. These benefits will enable ACI's payment applications to more flexibly gather and present information to users from a multitude of sources and complex events in real time.

Metatomix's semantic services provide an abstraction layer that leverages existing information repositories to enable new insights on the basis of previously undiscovered information, relationships and data correlations. For customers this translates into reduced time, effort and costs associated with replicating the data users need to make proper decisions.

"Our customers demand solutions that can effectively process the amount of information flowing through their ever more complex applications," said Mark Vipond, President of Global Product at ACI Worldwide. "Metatomix's innovative semantic services solution fits this bill perfectly, providing more intelligent, relevant and context-aware knowledge than possible with more traditional approaches. We believe the enterprise-class semantic application functionality Metatomix brings will prove a critical competitive differentiator across our payment solutions and continue ACI's tradition of being a thought leader in applying new technologies to the payments industry."

"Metatomix remains focused on providing real-world business solutions on the basis of innovative semantic technology," said Metatomix CEO Jeff Dickerson. "Today's announcement well reflects that focus. We are proud to be partnering with a company of ACI's caliber, providing value to their customers as part of ACI payment solutions."
