Butler Group Reports GUPTA's Software Time and Cost Efficient

Butler Group White Paper Provides a Technical Audit on GUPTA's Flagship Products SQLBase and Team Developer

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2005 -- Gupta Technologies, LLC, a world leader in software development and data management solutions, and Butler Group, UK-based analyst firm, today announced the release of a technology audit white paper on GUPTA's SQLBase and Team Developer software. The white paper reviews key areas such as functionality, product operation, product emphasis, positioning, technology audit, deployment and pricing strategy for both SQLBase and Team Developer. Butler Group explores how GUTPA customers and partners can leverage SQLBase and Team Developer to improve multiple processes from faster development to better/higher margins.

"Both the SQLBase and Team Developer solutions excel in a highly competitive industry," said Mike Thompson, a principal research analyst at Butler Group. "With cross-platform offerings users can embrace quickly and efficiently with a low skill set requirement, GUPTA's solutions have come to represent an extremely valuable resource for the small-and-midsized enterprise (SME) market."

Throughout the white paper Butler Group notes key competitive advantages that differentiate SQLBase and Team Developer from the rest of the marketplace. Both SQLBase and Team Developer form a solid complete solution for application development and deployment but are not interdependent -- enabling the software to exist and be highly usable in its own right. Both solutions provide backward compatibility for source code generated to protect existing investments when upgrading to later versions or adding additional functionality. In addition, both solutions provide cross-platform development and deployment allowing users to have one source code line for both Linux and Windows.

Butler Group also cites several key differentiators that separate SQLBase and Team Developer from other similar industry solutions. Team Developer has been designed to allow the business process to drive development and enables users to decrease development time. Users of SQLBase experience a solution that is fully featured, but that requires nominal levels of maintenance and administration. Butler Group also recognized that SQLBase is positioned to leverage its long-term leadership position in the embedded market.

"The technology audit completed by Butler Group is a great tool for our partners, customers and new prospects when evaluating application development solutions," said Chuck Stevenson, GUPTA's chief technology officer. "The white paper provides a third-party objective point of view. In a market, where competitive advantages are so important to differentiate solutions, we are thrilled to have this type of validation of our software from such a well-respected organization."
