Star Analytics Previews New Version of Star Integration Server at SAPPHIRE® 2008

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - Booth #E41 -- Star Analytics, a leading provider of enterprise software to unify and share information across financial analysis applications, is showcasing a sneak preview of the latest version of Star Integration Server at its booth #E41 at SAPPHIRE® 2008 Orlando, SAP's international customer conference.

Demonstrations at the booth show how easy it is to use Star Integration Server to unlock valuable financial data for management dashboards, enterprise performance management, reporting and analysis -- capabilities enabled through the technology partnership announced last year between Star Analytics and Business Objects, now an SAP company.

Star Analytics was also highlighted in a session this morning on the value of extending access to financial information for decision making. The presentation was led by Adam Thier, Vice President, Development, Corporate Performance Management, SAP Labs.

"We're pleased with the positive response that customers, partners and industry watchers have expressed in Star Integration Server here in Orlando, particularly this morning's discussion about the value of technology to manage, reuse and protect data," said Suzanne Hoffman, Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Star Analytics. "Comments in the session that we have a 'fantastic product' reaffirm what our Fortune 500 customers tell us. We see this event as an important milestone in our partnership with Business Objects and further validation for the critical role Star Integration Server plays in accelerating time to value for a financial data warehouse."

More details about the new version of Star Integration Server will be unveiled at an invitation only event for Star Analytics' customers in Silicon Valley next week.
