FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Universal Data Interface Corporation Joins Kx Systems in Strategic Alliance

NEW YORK, January 10, 2001 - Universal Data Interface Corporation, an XML based middleware company, and Kx Systems, developers of Kdb, the ultra high performance relational database, announced a strategic alliance today.

As part of the strategic alliance UDICo will use Kx Systems' database manager, Kdb, and its scripting language, K as part of the UDI product.

UDICo's flagship product, the Universal Data Interface, is a high-speed middleware product that converts high volumes of data and does large-scale transaction management in real time. Its UDI Design Tool allows the creation of conversion specifications quickly and easily using a graphical point-and-click interface, and its Runtime Server can perform conversions and transaction management according to these specifications on a variety of platforms.

Kdb is an RDBMS and an OLAP product that provides high performance transaction processing and optimization of decision support for both relational and time-series queries. Kdb is SQL92 compliant, and goes beyond SQL92 in its expressiveness. It is exceptional for its small size and its ability to manipulate massive amounts of data extremely quickly.

"Like the UDI, Kx Systems has developed a product that is world class," said Adam Greissman, UDICo's founder and CEO. "Partnering with Kx System improves the performance of the UDI and enables us to complete middleware projects that our competitors cannot touch, as shown by our sale to AnnuityScout.com, in which we used Kx Systems' technology."

"Having UDICo join us as a business development partner validates Kdb's performance in Internet applications," said Janet Lustgarten, President and CEO of Kx. "Embedding Kx Systems technology into the UDI is a win-win for both companies."
