Harte-Hanks Trillium Software Releases TS Insight Version 2.0

TS Insight Continues to Gain Market Momentum as Organizations Demand Dashboard Capabilities to Monitor Data Quality, Measure Data Compliance and Perform Data Governance

BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwire - September 12, 2007) - Trillium Software®, a business of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE: HHS), and leading enabler of global Total Data Quality solutions, today announced the release of TS Insight Version 2.0, the latest version of its data quality dashboard product to monitor enterprise-owned data assets and applications. TS Insight provides domestic and global enterprises with an executive view of data quality trends presented via Web-based scorecards.

"Our customers have enthusiastically embraced TS Insight," said Len Dubois, vice president of marketing, Harte-Hanks Trillium Software. "With it, they have been able to outline data governance priorities and processes while delivering information that bridges the business and IT divide. In the first version of TS Insight [released in January], we sought to provide organizations an executive-view data quality dashboard that had the architecture, functionality and flexibility to provide visibility into data quality from a business perspective. As we gained feedback from customers, we have enhanced TS Insight significantly to ensure that we continue to deliver on our vision to make data quality an enterprise platform, meeting the needs of both business users and technical specialists."

Organizations such as Frontline (a UK publications distributor) and Sage UK (a business software company) each have selected TS Insight to enable them to gain a higher level view of data quality trends and metrics as they relate to broader enterprise initiatives, such as data governance, data compliance or master data management (MDM).

TS Insight Version 2.0 offers a number of improvements to its previous version including: security enhancements, enhanced load performance and additional "out of the box" business rules. TS Insight, Version 2.0, works with TS Discovery Version 5.0 and the upcoming fall release of Trillium Software System, Version 11.

New features and enhancements in TS Insight Version 2.0 are:

--  Enhanced and flexible security model, with easier administration
    facilities
--  Performance improvements - 20 times faster during the load of metrics,
    with more detailed load feedback for administrators, while utilizing only
    10 percent of disk/storage space of the previous release
--  New business rules - with increased functionality around scoring and
    data standards compliance
--  Additional data quality metrics to score and trend metrics associated
    with incomplete, missing and duplicated data
--  Enterprise architecture enhancements to enable a single TS Insight
    server to be deployed across multiple business departments and functions
