Cura Introduces new OEM agreement with SAP BusinessObjects Edge Business Intelligence software

Global governance, risk and compliance vendor Cura Software
Solutions, a subsidiary of SoftPro Systems Limited today announced an OEM agreement with SAP AG, through which users of
Cura’s next-generation solutions will benefit from integration with
best-of-breed, on-demand reports from SAP. Cura plans to integrate SAP
BusinessObjects Edge Business Intelligence (BI), Crystal Reports and
Xcelsius software with the forthcoming release of Cura Audit and Cura
v3 Dashboards governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions starting
April 2010.

"This agreement is a vital step for Cura, since it
allows us to focus more deeply on the logic and intellectual property
that lies within our suite of GRC solutions, while knowing that the
reporting and dashboarding end of the equation is being handled by one
of the most trusted names in the market," said Avi Eyal, CEO, Cura
Software. "As an SAP BusinessObjects OEM partner, we will also have
access to functionality we weren’t able to offer our customers before.
We’re looking forward to offering our customers reporting and
dashboarding functionality that not only looks more visually appealing,
but is compiled within much shorter timeframes and is more customizable
and granular in nature. We believe the integration of SAP
BusinessObjects Edge BI, Crystal Reports and Xcelsius software with our
suite will bring us numerous benefits in the long-term evolution of our
solution functionality and customer acceptance."

Prior to
entering into the agreement with SAP BusinessObjects, Cura had a
proprietary reporting engine, which required substantial development
and upkeep to stay abreast of technology and product changes. Cura’s
customers required new methods of interaction with reporting and
dashboarding data. After a detailed review of solutions, Cura chose SAP
BusinessObjects BI software due to its comprehensive functionality
available using Java in the web browser environment. The incorporation
of the SAP reporting and dashboarding solutions will reduce time to
market and cost of development for customers, further helping to
increase Cura’s competitive advantage in the marketplace.

BusinessObjects Edge BI software is a powerful business intelligence
choice for companies that want to improve business processes, discover
new opportunities, and gain a competitive advantage. This
comprehensive, versatile suite delivers solutions that address business
intelligence requirements – from flexible ad-hoc reporting and
analysis, to dashboards and visualization, to powerful data integration
and quality as well as prepackaged data mart solutions.

BusinessObjects Edge BI software delivers comprehensive, flexible and
affordable solutions for customers and provides the intelligence to
help keep companies ahead of ever-shifting business conditions," said
Wyatt Mullin, vice president, Global ISV Channel, SAP BusinessObjects
Division. "The software, integrated with offerings from Cura, will help
deliver to customers an easy-to-use, proven, affordable solution that
promotes cost efficiencies and delivers measurable impact on business
performance. Our partnership with Cura will empower Cura’s customers
with the right combination of solutions and expertise to make data
intuitively accessible."

Cura’s new agreement with SAP is also a
vital step in the interoperability stakes, since the data extracted
from Cura’s suite of solutions will immediately become usable and
complementary to other systems and business intelligence tools.
