Worksoft® Enters Strategic Partnership With IntelliCorp® to Automate and Accelerate Upgrades of SAP® Applications

Combined Compare/Test Solution Speeds Deployment of Implementations, Upgrades, Customizations or Migrations of SAP Applications

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 3, 2007) - Worksoft, Inc., a leading provider of testing solutions that automate, accelerate and optimize deployments of SAP® applications, has entered a strategic partnership with IntelliCorp, a worldwide provider of software and applications for lifecycle management and system support of SAP solutions, to provide a combined software solution bundling their two flagship offerings for the benefit of customers deploying applications from SAP AG. Today's announcement was made at TechEd '07, SAP's largest technical education conference in Las Vegas.

Worksoft will leverage IntelliCorp's best-of-breed technology to automatically "learn" the specific SAP transactions, screens and objects being used across a customer's end-to-end SAP application-based environment. This capability will help ensure thorough functional testing of key business processes using Worksoft Certify™ prior to implementation.

"Worksoft is focused on maximizing time to value and helping our customers implement new modules and upgrades of SAP applications, more efficiently and with minimal risk," says Bruce Johnson, President and CEO of Worksoft. "We have been impressed with IntelliCorp's technology and expertise in extracting hidden value from SAP solutions and related systems."

IntelliCorp LiveCompare automatically identifies the differences and conflicts in configuration, code, data and transaction usage between SAP solutions -- such as the current to the upgrade version. This information combined with Worksoft Certify's patented scriptless approach to creating and maintaining automated test cases allows business analysts, end users, and other business process-related subject matter experts to focus their testing efforts on areas most at risk -- those changing with the current upgrade. This combined solution of Worksoft Certify and IntelliCorp will accelerate the migration of customers to the SAP NetWeaver® platform, speed their upgrades and reduce the costs of lifecycle management.

"We are pleased to be partnering with such an innovator in functional testing of SAP applications," said Jerome Klajbor, CEO at IntelliCorp. "We've discovered that Worksoft's scriptless approach solves, once and for all, the code maintenance issues inherent in traditional record-and-playback based testing solutions."

Information and demonstrations of Worksoft and IntelliCorp's integrated solutions are available at Worksoft's booth (# 85) at TechEd '07 or by contacting Worksoft. Plan to visit Worksoft and IntelliCorp's booth (# 42) at TechEd '07 Las Vegas from October 1 - 5, 2007.
