Martinsried, March 2, 2007 – XING, the global networking platform of OPEN
Business Club AG, has decided to have an end-to-end data warehouse solution
designed and implemented by SHS VIVEON AG. This solution allows a
differentiated analysis of the business evolution and thus ensures the
optimum use of growth potential and resources. Acquiring this order will
allow SHS VIVEON AG to further successfully expand its position on the
market as a provider of end-to-end customer value management solutions.

Dirk Roesing, SHS VIVEON AG’s CEO: 'Our core competences for data
warehousing allows us to support companies in efficiently covering their
increasingly complex information requirements to analyze their business and
optimize their processes. We are very pleased that XING will benefit from
the demanding architecture we have designed!' This state-of-the-art
infrastructure was developed for XING on an open source basis.

engaging SHS VIVEON AG: 'The data warehouse project is a top priority for
us. Our company is growing fast, and having a scalable IT solution that is
tailored to our company is a key factor. We were convinced by SHS VIVEON’s
competence for solutions and top quality work. We have already been able to
use the first evaluations during our IPO in order to transparently present
our business model.'
