Theoris, Inc. Partners With Plumtree Software to Bring Business Intelligence to Millions of Corporate Portal Users

Theoris Incorporates Their Business Intelligence Framework With the Plumtree Portal Platform

INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 27, 2005 -- Theoris, Inc., a next-generation, Web-enabled business intelligence software vendor, today announced it signed a new technology partnership agreement with Plumtree Software (NASDAQ: PLUM). Theoris will bring business intelligence (BI) capabilities to Plumtree's corporate portal customers. The Theoris Vision BI Framework for Plumtree can be embedded into personalized and community pages as portlets, helping to enable executives and managers to build and track key performance indicators (KPIs), enabling Plumtree portal users to easily access and interact with valuable business intelligence data.

"Plumtree's enterprise customers will benefit from the business intelligence solution offered by Theoris," said Tony Sanders, vice president worldwide channels at Plumtree Software. "The Theoris BI solution delivers both structured and unstructured information via portlets which can allow portal users at all levels of an enterprise to access and view management reports, spreadsheets and enterprise applications in a portal view. This will help enable business groups to make better, more informed decisions based on consistent information from their most trusted data sources."

Utilizing Theoris Vision Software™ can provide several key benefits to Plumtree customers including:

--  Access to information from data sources -- Portal users can connect to
    audited management reports, business intelligence systems, enterprise
    applications, intranets, extranets and the Internet
--  On-demand insight to information -- High-value information from
    critical business areas can be grouped together on-demand from multiple
    data sources, delivering greater business insight and value to the decision-
    maker in a contextually relevant manner
--  Ease of use -- End-users and business analysts can build dashboards
    with an intuitive, wizard-driven process. Whenever there are changes -- in
    organizational structure, priorities, or IT systems -- users can modify
    dashboards themselves, with no programming required.

"Combining portal technology with next-generation business intelligence technology enables decision-makers across enterprises to use business analytics like never before," said Michael Cunningham, chief executive officer at Theoris. "As the premier enterprise portal solution provider, Plumtree provides the ideal platform for delivering mission-critical information to the decision-makers who need it the most."

It also offers out-of-the-box integration with all JSR 168 compliant portals, which includes the Plumtree Corporate Portal platform.
