Pipeline Software to Exhibit at STO 2007 Conference

Company to Present SAP-Centric Integration Solution That Speeds Systems Integration, Increases Plant Performance and Mitigates Risk for Asset-Intensive Industries

SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - September 5, 2007) - Pipeline Software Inc., the SAP Integration Experts™, will exhibit at the STO 2007 Conference at the Marriott City Center in Denver, Sept. 9-12, 2007. The STO 2007 Conference focuses on best management practices for organizations that conduct shutdowns, turnarounds and outages (STO). Pipeline Software helps companies interconnect SAP systems with other key applications. Companies with asset-intensive operations -- including utilities, oil and gas, nuclear power providers and petrochemical processing plant operators -- rely on Pipeline Software and its Transporter™ for SAP Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) platform to integrate plant maintenance data and processes between SAP and non-SAP applications.

The SAP EAM solution was designed by SAP to help companies in asset-intensive industries reduce operating costs, better manage capital expenditures and improve plant utilization. It is focused on four primary areas, including specification and design, procurement and construction, operation and maintenance, and decommission and disposal. The core of SAP EAM is comprised of SAP's Plant Maintenance (PM), Materials Management (MM) and Project System (PS) modules.

"STO 2007 is the premiere event for organizations conducting shutdowns, turnarounds and outages, and we look forward to presenting our EAM solutions to those looking to effectively integrate their mission-critical applications," said Charlie Sundling, chief executive officer, Pipeline Software. "Our platform radically improves our customers' ability to integrate SAP EAM modules with their non-SAP best-of-breed applications. This ensures seamless business process flow and rapid communication, which is critical to any STO cycle."

The powerful Transporter for SAP EAM platform enables rapid integration between SAP EAM modules and any non-SAP application. Additionally, Pipeline Software provides prepackaged integration modules, called iPacks (integration packages), that provide an out-of-the-box integration solution for popular best-of-breed products such as Primavera. Pipeline Software's SAP integration solutions help plant owners and operators quickly and effectively resolve their most difficult cross-system integration challenges and ensure data synchronization and integrity across the business process, leaving management and users free to focus on their most important task: successful STOs.

Sundling continues, "Our iPacks help our customers implement business solutions in a fraction of the time and cost of custom integrations. This solution also effectively eliminates the unnecessary trial-and-error gamble and ongoing support risks of trying to develop a custom integration solution. For example, our Primavera iPack includes more than 100 predefined field mappings, integration rules and processing transformations required to integrate Primavera P3e or P6 with SAP PM and PS modules. This iPack provides a proven integration solution that eliminates guesswork and risk, and it can be implemented in a matter of days versus the many months it usually takes a company to develop and perfect a custom integration solution."
