Pilot Software to Lead General Session at BPM Summit in Old Greenwich, Connecticut

Leading Performance Management Vendor to Discuss How to Move From Metrics-Based Systems to Actionable Performance Management

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 8, 2005 -- Pilot® Software, the original innovator of operational performance management solutions, today announced that Chief Executive Officer and President Jonathan D. Becher has been selected to present "Moving from Metrics-Based Systems to Actionable Performance Management." Leveraging his 15+ years of operational expertise, Jonathan's presentation will focus on how organizations that have historically focused on metrics can create a true performance management system rooted in goals.

According to Becher, "Most organizations publish metrics regularly as dashboards and reports built using Excel, PowerPoint, or business intelligence and reporting technology; although significant time and expense have been invested in the creation of metrics dashboards, many report that these systems have had little effect on their organizations' performance."

The session on Tuesday, November 15 at 11:40 a.m. is aimed squarely at addressing this issue and will specifically discuss:

--  How objectives provide context that gives operational dashboards more
    meaning and makes metrics more actionable
--  The role of metrics-based systems in achieving holistic, goal-oriented
    performance management
--  How to use existing metrics dashboards and reports as part of a
    performance management system
