Press Release Summary = Unclaimed tax refunds totaling over $2.2 BILLION DOLLARS is
waiting to be claimed by an estimated 1.8 MILLION

Americans who failed to file a tax return for 2003. To receive an unclaimed tax
refund check a tax return for 2003 must be

filed with the IRS by April 17, 2007 or will be forfeited to the government.

Press Release Body = Santa Ana, CA – March 14 2007, Unclaimed tax refunds totaling
over $2.2 BILLION DOLLARS is waiting to be claimed by an estimated 1.8 MILLION
Americans who failed to file a tax return for 2003. To receive an unclaimed tax
refund check a tax return for 2003 must be filed with the IRS by April 17, 2007 or
will be forfeited to the government.

The law allows an individual 3 years to file a return and claim a tax refund. After
the 3 years the unclaimed tax refund check is forfeited to the US Treasury

Unfortunately, unclaimed tax returns are common. These checks remain unclaimed for
of various reasons. Some people are owed a refund from money withheld from their
wages and some did not make enough money in 2003 to be required to file a tax
return. Others may not have filed because they donРІР‚в„ўt owe taxes or they didnРІР‚в„ўt take
their earned income tax credit.

An Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable item which is treated as a
payment already made towards taxes owed that reduces or eliminates the taxes that
low-income working people pay (such as payroll taxes) and also frequently operates
as a wage subsidy for low-income workers.

Earn income tax credits for 2003 are for an unmarried person who made less than
$11,230 and has no children, earned less than $29,666 and had one child, or earned
no more than $33,692 and had two or more kids. Income limits are a little higher for
married people filing jointly.

Considering the people who are eligible for the refunds are those who did not make
much, they are probably most in need of this money. Most likely they are unaware the
money is due to them or they simply donРІР‚в„ўt know how to claim it.

The only way to claim your 2003 tax refund check is to file your taxes for that
year. However, if you have not filed for subsequent years 2004 or 2005 your refund
check will be held and if you owe outstanding amounts the refund will be applied
toward that balance.

The IRS will send a refund check after receiving the appropriate filing form, Form
1040 (or 1040A or 1040EZ). This form will indicate how large the refund check should

You can download this form at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1040–2003.pdf or
call toll-free (800) 829-3676 to request the form.

People that are owed an unclaimed tax refund you may be owed other unclaimed funds.
There are millions of Americans who have lost money they may be completely unaware
exists. Unclaimed money in the United States totals over $35 BILLION.

This money will sit in the governmentРІР‚в„ўs hands until claimed by the rightful owner.
Each person should check the unclaimed money database at www.cashunclaimed.com at
least twice a year to see if they or their family members have money owed to them.

Those who find they are owed unclaimed funds will also find forms and instructions
to claim the funds.

Solix Technologies Introduces Fourth Generation of Enterprise Data Management Solutions

Released on = March 16, 2007, 4:48 am

Press Release Author = Solix Technologies

Industry = Software

Press Release Summary = Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite facilitates
compliance and information lifecycle management from a single platform for
enterprise customers

Press Release Body = SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 19, 2007 – Solix Technologies today
announced its fourth generation of Compliance and Information Lifecycle Management
(ILM) solutions, the Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite (Solix EDMS), that help
companies more efficiently classify, manage and secure enterprise data for
information governance, tiered storage strategies and application data

The Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite is composed of Compliance and ILM
solutions. At the core of the new Solix EDMS is the Solix Enterprise Metadata
Manager, which manages multiple application and data types across all hardware
platforms. The Solix Enterprise Metadata Manager enables centralized management of
data security policies whether the data resides in the production instance or in
test and development copies.

Solix\’s modular architecture enables customers to solve immediate data management
needs while leveraging existing capital investments for future initiatives. The
Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite is pre-populated with the metadata for
popular ERP\’s such as Oracle eBusiness Suite (including Oracle Process
Manufacturing), Oracle PeopleSoft and Oracle JDEdwards, and provides a drag and drop
tool to configure metadata for custom applications.

“Too often the ability to meet compliance requirements, information governance and
Federal regulations places unnecessary burden on corporate IT professionals,” said
Sai Gundavelli, chief executive officer, Solix Technologies. “Identifying and
locating electronic information does not need to be like trying to find a needle in
a haystack – provided that you used the right tool for the job. The Solix
Enterprise Data Management Suite will enable the worldРІР‚в„ўs largest customers to more
easily manage the vast amount of data that they collect as part of on-going business
operations; ensure its security; and be able to meet U.S. and international laws
that govern the security and privacy of personal customer information using a phased
implementation approach so they can tackle immediate problems now while leveraging
their investments for future initiatives.”

With security events and threats at an all time high and news of lost tapes, stolen
laptops and customer data breaches, organizations need to ensure they are taking the
necessary steps to protect confidential information. According to Enterprise
Strategy Group, with as much as half of an enterpriseРІР‚в„ўs confidential data residing
in ERP, CRM, and custom applications, organizations need to ensure these
environments are secure. In addition, todayРІР‚в„ўs enterprises are struggling to manage
critical and confidential data more efficiently during a time in which storage
budgets have shown continuous increases despite declining storage costs.

Over the next four years, the Enterprise Strategy Group expects organizations to
archive approximately 7,500 petabytes of database information to help comply with
record retention regulations, retain structured information online at lower costs,
and create development environments supporting infrastructure and software upgrades.
“There are clear benefits of managing database information from a single platform
as organizations must deal with evolving information security, information privacy
and information retention regulations” said Brian Babineau, Senior Analyst,
Enterprise Strategy Group. “Whether it is creating a secure development environment,
sunsetting aged database applications, or leveraging inexpensive storage, Solix
provides a comprehensive suite of products designed to facilitate more efficient
database management.”

With the Solix EDMS, organizations will be able to manage compliance and ILM
initiatives from a single platform providing organizations with the tools to:

– Mitigate Risk: Significantly reduce security threats by masking confidential
database data
within archives and test and development environments;
– Reduce Storage Costs: Leverage tiered storage strategies for more efficient data
lifecycle management;
– Enforce Consistent Security Policies: Implement consistent data security policies
and enforce those policies when archiving and migrating data
– Audit Data: Audit database activity, providing audit notifications and reports
that can be searched and retrieved during an E-Discovery investigation; and
– Retire legacy applications: Migrate and archive legacy data for application and
infrastructure upgrades

Solix Compliance Solutions:
– Solix Secure Test and Development allows organizations to automatically create
database copies while masking sensitive data in non-production environments for
improved security, faster test and development cycles, and reduced storage costs.
– Solix Data Auditor is a policy driven security tool that monitors and reports on
what data has been accessed, updated or deleted, providing event notification and
reporting of database activity in a secure repository that can be searched during an
audit or eDiscovery inquiry.

Solix Information Lifecycle Management Solutions:
– Solix Enterprise Archiving, formerly Solix ARCHIVEjinni, archives all data
(application, email, documents and other files) to a secure, controlled, and
searchable archive laying a foundation to support eDiscovery.
– Solix Application Sunsetting and Migration leverages the Solix Enterprise Metadata
Manager and allows database administrators to map metadata between legacy and
current applications and create conversion rules to ensure seamless data migration.

“Our customers are looking for ways to solve their database management and security
challenges,” said Amitava Sharma, Global Head Oracle Practice, Wipro Technologies.
With so many different solutions out there, it is critical that customers can
streamline and simplify their IT infrastructure while addressing their evolving
needs. The Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite gives enterprises both: the
ability to implement the solutions they need today, with the infrastructure in place
to address future database management challenges.” Wipro Technologies is a member
of the Solix Global Partner Network.

The Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite of products is available immediately from
Solix Technologies and members of the Solix Global Partner Network. For more

Following the close of the transaction, WebEx will become a part of Cisco’s Development Organization while maintaining its unique business model. Mr. Iyar will report directly to Mr.Giancarlo.
