39 Percent Increase Over 2009 Reflects Growing Reliance on the CygNet Enterprise Operations Platform as the Industry's Standard Enterprise SCADA Solution

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2010) -  CygNet Software, provider of the leading enterprise operations platform for the oil and gas industry, today announced that 125 enthusiastic oil and gas industry representatives attended the CygNet Users Group Conference 2010 held on April 13. The attendance represented a 39 percent increase over 2009. Most attendees indicated that they were satisfied or very satisfied with the conference, that it was well organized, and that they found it a valuable use of their time.

The power-packed event, held in Houston, Texas, had as its theme "Adapt and Empower," a reflection of CygNet's focus on empowering organizations to effectively collect, manage, and distribute massive amounts of real-time and historical data using the highly configurable CygNet Enterprise Operations Platform. The conference, designed to foster collaboration among CygNet representatives and customers, featured user-led presentations and discussions, as well as technical breakout sessions led by CygNet engineers and senior consultants.

"This year we were particularly impressed by the involvement of our attendees, who frequently remarked that CygNet is now their standard enterprise SCADA solution," said Steve Robb, director of business development and marketing, CygNet Software. "Right from the start, with a 55 percent surge in pre-registrations over 2009 and a 39 percent overall rise in attendance, we saw an increased level of interest continuing to build a community around sharing the successes and best practices that our customers enjoy."

The CygNet Users Group Conference is presided over by the CygNet Board of Customer Advisors (BoCA). BoCA members are selected from the exploration and production (E&P) and pipeline segments of the oil and gas industry, and they play an important advisory role in CygNet's product development process and solution design. The members serve as the pulse of the industry and voice of the customer community on their real-time operations, as well as business and product needs.
