Star Analytics Announces Oracle Fusion Middleware Support

Combined Products Greatly Improve the Automation and Integration of Business Planning, Analysis and Consolidation Application Environments

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - Star Analytics, Inc., the leader in financial application process automation and integration software, today announced support for Oracle's Fusion Middleware platform with its flagship product, the Star Finance Command Center. The combined solution greatly reduces the cost and complexity of finance systems for faster and more profitable business decisions.

The Star Finance Command Center has gained significant traction in the office of the CFO with deployments across industries such as manufacturing, financial services, energy and technology. The application greatly improves the reliability, consistency, and timeliness of finance application data through its ability to seamlessly chain together and automate application processes across a whole ecosystem of finance applications. By extending its open, pluggable architecture, the Star Finance Command Center provides additional value by seamlessly melding with business processes that are managed through the Oracle Fusion Middleware platform and the BPEL Process Manager.

"Given our deep experience in the EPM space, we understand the challenges that enterprises face in gaining optimal value from their planning and analysis applications," said Quinlan Eddy, founder and CEO of Star Analytics. "Star Finance Command Center is a perfect complement to Oracle's BPEL Process Manager and Fusion Middleware architecture. The ability for the Star Finance Command Center to work in unison with Oracle's components will greatly reduce the cost and complexity of automating and managing critical end-to-end application and business processes."

"As a senior finance executive, I've seen business planning, analysis, and financial consolidation applications become the heartbeat of the world's largest and most successful companies," said Jeffrey Brobst, a Star Analytics advisory board member. "News that we've heard recently from mega vendors emphasizes that the winds are changing in how businesses view their key financial applications. ERP is no longer the sole source of truth in an organization. Having used the Star Finance Command Center and Oracle together in practice, I've seen how the ability to automate these disparate financial application processes and platforms is critical to realize full value of finance systems."
