MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 24, 2005 -- MicroStrategy(R) Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) software, today announced expanded integration with SAP NetWeaver(TM) in its latest release of MicroStrategy 8. With this release, business users can further leverage their existing SAP investments to seamlessly report on, analyze, and monitor data contained in SAP Business Information Warehouse (BW).

As a "Powered by NetWeaver" solution for SAP, MicroStrategy 8 is certified with SAP Web Application Server, SAP BW, and SAP Enterprise Portal, making it well-suited for enterprise business intelligence that includes data from SAP BW and other sources such as data warehouses and data marts. MicroStrategy 8 enables users to join SAP BW data with non-SAP data to provide actionable insight to improve corporate performance. In addition, MicroStrategy 8 provides the business user an intuitive, interactive, and investigative web interface that delivers high performance reporting, analysis, scorecards, and dashboards through patented caching technology.

The expanded SAP NetWeaver integration in the most recent release of MicroStrategy 8 gives business users access to advanced SAP Business Content, specifically SAP BW Structures and Variables, allowing them to execute a wider range of ad-hoc business information requests. MicroStrategy 8 also integrates with existing SAP security and Single Sign-On, ensuring administrators can continue to use existing security infrastructures.

"The new features in the latest MicroStrategy 8 release reinforce our long term commitment to help SAP customers build successful business intelligence applications," said MicroStrategy COO Sanju Bansal. "Combining the flexibility and open architecture of the SAP NetWeaver solution with the proven scalability of the MicroStrategy platform provides an intuitive and high performance analysis and reporting platform for SAP customers."
