Jun 30, 2008 (10:06 AM EDT)

BOSTON, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Eagle Investment Systems LLC, a leading provider of financial services technology and a subsidiary of The Bank of New York Mellon, today announced that it has expanded its relationship with Microsoft to take full advantage of Microsoft Windows(R) Presentation Foundation (WPF), a framework and tool set for developing smart client applications that are deployable via the Internet. With WPF, developers can create custom controls, graphics, 3D images and animations that are not available in traditional HTML code.

Eagle is leveraging WPF to develop its investment management solutions for data management, accounting and performance measurement, which are used by the asset management industry's leading firms. Eagle has incorporated WPF into its overall architecture to differentiate the user experience and take advantage of its features to deliver a richer presentation of the applications, improve its developer productivity, and build more dynamic applications in a faster timeframe.

"Through our expanded relationship, WPF enables Eagle to provide a more dynamic and interesting user experience through its delivery of enhanced presentation code," said Marc Firenze, Eagle's chief development officer. "It also provides a straightforward programming model and familiar design tools for our developers, making it easy to adopt internally and develop solutions faster."

"Financial software vendors are the latest industry group to take advantage of the rich programming and presentation features and tools to build out their applications," said Greg Urquhart, General Manager of Microsoft's ISV & National SI Organization. "Microsoft is excited to see Eagle take the presentation of their applications to the next level as they meet the needs of our joint customers."
