- Industry Experts and Peers Select Goldensource as the Most Innovative Software Supplier in the Enterprise Data Management Category for 2008

GoldenSource Corporation, a global software provider of Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solutions announced today that it has won the Best Enterprise Data Management category in the annual Innovation Awards presented by Financial-i magazine. It's the third consecutive year the data management provider received this recognition.

The Leaders in Innovation Awards recognize vendors shaping the delivery of business solutions in the wholesale transaction banking space. After compiling a shortlist for each category, the editorial teams sought input from leading industry consultants and analysts including, TowerGroup, Celent and Aite.

In the Enterprise Data Management category, GoldenSource came out ahead of its competition based on consistently high scores in the following criteria:

- upgrades made to the existing solution; - functionality enhancements; - depth and breadth of functionality; - the ease with which customers can implement and interface with solutions; - the ability to capture real-time transaction information; and - the ability to implement an enterprise data management framework.

In the light of the challenges that business now faces in terms of heightened regulatory oversight, new competitive threats and a subdued operating environment, innovations that clearly differentiate providers and save time, money and manpower, are even more compelling, commented Anita Hawser, editor of Financial-i.

Michael Meriton, president and CEO of GoldenSource, said, Data management has never been more important than in the current economic environment. With boards and industry regulators knocking on financial institutions' doors, the focus is now on transparency through the total corporate hierarchy level. This award demonstrates that GoldenSource delivers strategic value in tactical data management implementations. As we continue to build on our track record, we look forward to helping more financial institutions meet these new operational, regulatory and risk management challenges.
