Subject: Viador and Hynet Technologies Deliver Dynamic eBusiness Content via XML

Viador and Hynet Technologies to Help Companies Access & Deliver Dynamic
eBusiness Content via XML 
Centralized Access to Business Critical Information for Companies with
Time-to-Market Challenges
MOUNTAIN VIEW and SAN MATEO, Calif., November 29, 1999 - Hynet
Technologies(tm), a leading provider of Dynamic Customer Content (DCC)
solutions for empowering e-business, and Viador Inc.(tm) (Nasdaq: VIAD),
a leading provider of enterprise portals, today announced a joint
development effort designed to help companies with time-to-market
challenges to easily access and deliver dynamic, personalized
information through Viador's enterprise portal. As a result, users will
be able to access the Hynet Directive(tm) XML repository via Viador's
E-Portal Suite(tm), giving Viador customers access to business-critical
information such as sales proposals, marketing collateral and
globalization of e-Content.
Viador's E-Portal Suite is a single, web-based access point that
provides an entire business community - employees, customers, and
trading partners - with desktop access to the specific information they
need to make better business decisions. Hynet Directive is expected to
increase the value of Viador's offering by incorporating sources of data
that were previously difficult to integrate so that users can utilize
all relevant information, regardless of its source.
"We are very excited to offer our customers a single interface to access
all of their business-critical information managed in Hynet Directive
via Viador's enterprise portal," said Daniel Chang, president at Hynet.
"Viador's ability to leverage Hynet Directive will give enterprises the
ability to access and deliver business-critical information more rapidly
than ever before. This will enable them to accelerate time-to-market by
delivering superior products and services to their end-customers, while
enhancing their return-on-investment."
Viador's enterprise portal enables companies to securely search, access
and organize all types of business information, including structured
data contained in databases and business applications, as well as
unstructured data stored in file systems (Microsoft, etc.), groupware
(Lotus Notes), or on corporate intranets. The addition of Hynet
Directive offers Viador users new capabilities such as reading popular
source files and managing them in standardized XML objects or
Information Units (IUs). Significant savings are expected by managing
reusable information assets, eliminating human-introduced errors caused
by manual cut-and-paste documentation, and by accessing current
knowledge on demand through browsers. Hynet Technologies can make it
possible to integrate document-centric data such as sales proposal and
marketing collateral into the Viador enterprise portal, presented in
multiple formats across the web.
Examples of these new capabilities include:
*	Marketing Automation
Companies can quickly and easily integrate their vast marketing data
sources into one easy to use repository to deliver all customer facing
data. By adding this functionality to Viador's E-Portal Suite, companies
can run their entire marketing departments from one user friendly web
*	Proposal Generation
Sourced e-business data, including data stored in the increasingly
popular XML format, can be placed into a specific Viador report or
document, or put into a relational database, making it possible to save
and format the information for delivery to customers quickly and
accurately across the intranet or on an extranet. 
*	E-Content Globalization
Through Directive's patented translation management solution, companies
can realize a return on investment of 2-3 times, by reusing and
re-purposing their original language e-Content into various languages.
This system enhances the translation services that companies are already
using and ensures maximum efficiency in delivering the translated
versions of all companies' customer facing data. 
"Viador's focus is to provide an enterprise portal solution that enables
our customers to access all of the information they need to solve
business problems more efficiently and at less cost," commented Ben
Connors, vice president of business development at Viador. "To do this,
they need the capability to source essential business information
wherever it might be. The added capabilities of Hynet Directive will be
another very positive step in this direction."

accessed across the corporate environment. Using the "drag and drop"
method IUs are recalled by virtue of their attributes (or metadata
assignment) and reused and re-purposed to create varied pieces of
corporate collateral. The collateral can take the form of a web-site or
