Misys plc (FTSE: MSY.L), the global application software and services
company, today announces that International Bank of Qatar (IBQ) will be
implementing the Misys Learning Suite to train its expanding workforce as
part of its ongoing growth strategy.

IBQ, an established user of the core banking system Misys Equation, has

of the advanced banking system. The solution is deployed widely across the
bank’s operations, at its head offices in Doha and all other branches in
Qatar. Misys Learning Suite enables IBQ employees to benefit from a
standardised training suite and ongoing education programme to help them
increase efficiencies and boost performance and capability within the bank.

re-organised its business to respond better to its customers and has recently
unveiled a new brand identity to great success. IBQ offers a range of
services including retail banking, private banking, corporate banking and
treasury. All of IBQ’s core banking functions are now run on Misys software.

James Nelson-Parker, Chief Operating Officer of IBQ comments, “IBQ has
undergone a tremendous increase in headcount fuelled by our growth strategy
in the last few years. In order to offer the best service to our customers,
we need to ensure all our staff have optimal skills and knowledge through
excellent training. Misys Learning Suite has provided an efficient and
controlled way of ensuring that we keep our performance and effectiveness at
a maximum.”

“Providing a standardised e-learning programme that enables IBQ to train its
staff to the highest levels will greatly assist their operations.
Increasingly, our clients are turning to Misys for advice and consulting
