ProClarity and ACE Enterprise Provide Real-Time Analytic Capabilities to SAP-based Organisations

- ACE Enterprise Integrator Delivers SAP Business Intelligence to Excel -

's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, February 15, 2005 - ProClarity Corporation, a leading provider of analytic application technology for the enterprise, today announced a partnership with ACE Enterprise Slovakia that will provide real-time analytic access to SAP® for ProClarity® Live Server customers. ACE Enterprise, which specialises in building SAP connectivity systems, collaborated with ProClarity to develop ACE Enterprise Integrator which seamlessly integrates with ProClarity Live Server to enable real-time connections from Microsoft Excel to SAP R/3 and SAP BW data sources.

"Many of our clients have expressed interest in integrating SAP data into their reports using ProClarity Live Server," said Jan van Dijk, ProClarity International's product manager. "With ACE Enterprise Integrator, organisations can quickly define the SAP information they need to access in real-time directly from Excel. This gives users the ability to integrate SAP data with other information and they can even write back directly to the SAP data source in a controlled manner."

The combination of Live Server and ACE Enterprise Integrator, which is SAP certified, offers business decision makers the ability to create and share Excel spreadsheets that combine data directly out of SAP with information from other data sources. The use of 'live' and persistent connections to the data ensures that users always have access to the most up-to-date information.

"SAP data sources provide a great deal of valuable business information, yet they are traditionally not the easiest resources to access," said Hexal's Data Service Manager. "The ACE Enterprise Integrator allows us to tap SAP information and analyse it in relation to other data directly in Excel, giving us a much more holistic view of our organisation and allowing us to make more educated business decision."

The ProClarity Live Server is a middle-tier server that provides 'live' and persistent connections to a multitude of data sources. Live Server maintains data consistency and security throughout the organisation by providing a centralised point of control. By enabling both read and write capabilities to data sources in the familiar Excel environment, ProClarity Live Server promotes effective team planning and enables rapid updates of critical business systems.

Live Server is an integral component of the ProClarity 6 product family, a fully customisable analytic application platform that enables the rapid development and deployment of tailored business intelligence (BI) solutions.

"We are very excited to be partnering with ProClarity to incorporate real-time SAP data into analytic applications built in Live Server," said Alexander Cimbalak, CTO of ACE Enterprise Slovakia. "Live Server provides a great tool for users to analyse critical information in their SAP systems and incorporate it into their analytic applications."
