Gresham Computing

Re Agreement

Gresham Computing PLC
16 October 2001

For immediate release                                          16 October 2001



Cable & Wireless, the global telecommunications group, and Gresham Computing
plc (Gresham), today announced a collaborative revenue sharing agreement to
meet a pressing need within the banking community: online access to real-time

This collaboration will combine the financial strength and global
business-class internet infrastructure of Cable & Wireless, the enterprise
applications expertise of Gresham and the 2Way Web Services hosting capability
of Digital Island, a wholly owned Cable & Wireless subsidiary. The new venture
will be marketed globally by Cable & Wireless as Cable & Wireless Real Time
Nostro, and is scheduled to be commercially available globally in the summer
of 2002.

Cable & Wireless Real Time Nostro is being developed in consultation with a
number of global banks to meet a growing need from banks to manage:

  * Settlement risk - the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) has urged
    banks to reduce the time between when a trade is entered into and when it
    has been judged as irrevocably settled

  * Liquidity - banks can only manage money when they know they have
    received it

  * Operational risk - allowing banks to query on-line errors.

C&W Real Time Nostro builds on the excellent work by the Open Group to create
open data standards for all types of payments passing through banks. Gresham
was a leading participant in this work and helped establish the basis upon
which any number of banks can communicate using a common standard. This work,
together with the flexible environment offered by C&W global IP data network,
is designed to allow clients of C&W Real Time Nostro unparalleled flexibility
in sharing Nostro account information in a cost effective manner.Its unique
features will include:

  * Time-stamped information

  * An irrevocability indicator confirming completed transactions

  * IP-based network connections for all subscriber banks running Nostro
    accounts, worldwide

'This will be a unique opportunity to reap the benefits of a single, secure
network business function that is global, runs right to the desk top, and
delivers real reductions on the costs and risks of doing business in a
high-stakes environment,' said Gareth James, Cable & Wireless' senior vice
president, Enterprise UK and Ireland.

Andrew Walton-Green, Chief Executive of Gresham said 'I am very pleased to
enter into this arrangement with Cable & Wireless. They bring an unbeatable
offering through a combination of their secure web-hosting services, global
telecommunications reach and financial strength. I believe this service will
provide customers with a powerful mechanism to share information and improve
performance in the global financial system. Compared with current batch
processes we are building the foundation for a wholly new way of dealing with
payments information.'

'Gresham has a superb team of people and a history of providing world class
enterprise software. We have invested heavily in this new application,
particularly over the last half year, and there is still much to do to bring
this to market. However, the opportunity afforded through this exclusive
agreement with Cable & Wireless should enable the full potential of our
intellectual property to be realised.'

Cable & Wireless Real Time Nostro brings together two industry respected
leaders in Cable & Wireless and Gresham, and will ensure leading standards of
performance, security and reliability.
