Subject: [announce] OASIS Member News: Zurich Financial Services Selects XMLGlobal's GoXML(tm) Transform for its EDI/XML Transformation Needs

Zurich Financial Services Selects XML Global's GoXML(tm) Transform
                 for its EDI/XML Transformation Needs
Vancouver, BC, December 5th, 2001 - XML Global Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB:
XMLG), an XML middleware company, announced today that it has signed a
purchase contract with Zurich Financial Services which has chosen GoXML(tm)
Transform to facilitate its XML/EDI data transformation process. GoXML(tm)
Transform is a powerful and patented solution for the dynamic exchange of
XML, EDI and other data formats, and is ideally suited to the data
transformation requirements in the financial services industry.

Zurich Financial Services, as one of the world's leading financial
institutions, has critical business relationships with a wide range of
international financial institutions including banks, trust companies and
asset management firms. To facilitate the efficient sharing of data between
these various institutions in a common and mutually understandable format,
Zurich Financial first needed EDI/XML data transformation capabilities.
GoXML(tm) Transform is able to provide this solution with its powerful and
patented XML transformation engine that will allow all business partners to
transform their data, whether it be EDI or other legacy systems, into XML
and back again.

"We did a comprehensive evaluation of the industry's leading data
transformation solutions by looking at functionality, performance,
scalability and vendor responsiveness, and chose GoXML(tm) Transform to
drive our data transformation needs," said Tarmo Ploom of Zurich Financial
Services. "We chose XML Global's product because it will enable us to most
rapidly and cost effectively deliver the EDI/XML data transformation
requirements we and our clients need."

"XML data transformation technology is critical to the growth of the
financial services industry," stated Peter Shandro, CEO of XML Global,
"Inefficiencies can arise when critical information is not available to
everyone because it is distributed in a variety of formats across multiple
legacy sources. Zurich Financial has demonstrated their understanding of
this problem by choosing GoXML(tm) Transform to ensure that all participants
in their IT network have speedy and efficient access to same information in
the same format."
