DataJungle Software Names Robert Lendvai Chief Marketing Officer

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - August 14, 2007) - DataJungle Software Inc. (OTCBB: DJSW), a leading provider of next generation "on demand" business intelligence software, today announced the appointment of Robert Lendvai as the Company's new Chief Marketing Officer. A former member of DataJungle's board of directors from 2001-2005, Lendvai returns to guide and direct the Company's newly refined go-to-market strategy and expanded business model which provides for DataJungle to begin offering enterprise companies the flexibility of either conventional licensing of its Matrix software to support existing infrastructure, or subscribed access to this highly novel data intelligence technology through a web-enabled, on-demand ASP platform -- hosted, managed and maintained by DataJungle.

"I've long recognized that DataJungle's Matrix technology represents a powerful and highly innovative solution capable of transforming complex data into meaningful, user-friendly business intelligence," stated Lendvai. "I'm excited to be working with the DataJungle executive team and our customers as we redefine the business intelligence landscape with a new on-demand strategy."

Lendvai brings DataJungle more than 20 years proven experience in marketing, technology and executive management. Previously, he served as Managing Director of Toronto-based Leeward Hedge Funds Inc., an alternative asset manager of hedge funds for high net worth individuals, private banks, pension funds and institutional investors. He was also a member of Leeward's board of directors from 2001 through 2005. Before joining Leeward full-time in 2005, he was VP of Marketing for Activplant Corporation, a London-based leading provider of enterprise manufacturing intelligence software for the automotive and consumer goods industries.

Prior management posts have also included Vice President of Marketing for Kyberpass Corporation, an Ottawa-based eSecurity company that developed digital signature technology for the worldwide business-to-business epayments initiative of the global banking community, called Indentrus; and Vice President of Marketing and Communications for business intelligence software start-up OLAP@Work, which was later acquired by Business Objects, a Nasdaq-listed company; and Marketing Manager of the business intelligence division of Cognos Corporation, now Canada's largest software company. Prior to Cognos, he spent seven years with leading graphics software maker Corel Corporation.

Lendvai has frequently appeared in the media and at technology industry conferences. In 2000, he was included in the Ottawa Business Journal's list of the "Top 40 Under 40" outstanding young business leaders. He is a graduate of Ryerson University in Toronto, where he earned a BAA degree.

David Morris, CEO of DataJungle, noted, "One thing should be clear -- DataJungle is building a highly accomplished and talented leadership team that rivals many of the largest technology companies in the world. In this regard, Robert is an important and vital addition to our Company that has helped to greatly complement and strengthen the expertise, business perspective and sphere of influence of our entire executive management team. We're delighted to welcome him back to DataJungle and know that his contribution to our Company's success will be rapid and measurable."
