 key performance indicators (KPIs) and customized analytic capabilities to
 decision-makers responsible for sound profit and efficiency-driven
 recommendations.  The ProClarity Analytic Platform 4.0 includes the following:
 
      ProClarity Enterprise Server - Middle-tier server for centralized
      storage, management and distribution of analytics.  Manages the setup and
      delivery of analytics to rich and zero-footprint thin clients
 
      ProClarity Desktop Client - Customizable analytic client designed for
      analysts and power users
 
      ProClarity Rich Client - Offers the same power as the desktop client, but
      centrally distributed as components for remote users
 
      ProClarity Authoring Tool - View management and publishing plug-in for
      the ProClarity Desktop and Rich Clients
 
      ProClarity Enterprise Server SDK - Complete customization kit for
      middle-tier enterprise server and thin client
 
      ProClarity Client SDK - Complete customization kit for desktop and rich
      clients
 
     "ProClarity Analytic Platform 4.0 is designed from the ground-up to
 support the real-world workflow models and situations our customers face in
 which power users and analysts drive relevant performance indicators and
 propagate them to users of various skills and requirements for analysis,
 monitoring and collaboration," said Clay Young, VP of Marketing for ProClarity
 Corporation.  "The release of the ProClarity Analytic Platform 4.0
 dramatically extends the product line to become the enterprise analytic
 application platform of choice for customers and independent software vendors
 who want to deliver "any-net" based custom analytic applications to a wide
 variety of users."
 
     Platform Architecture
     The fourth-generation ProClarity Analytic Platform 4.0 enables
 customization through a Component Object Model (COM) approach -- with over
 90 unique components and an object model that has proven robust for even the
 most demanding custom analytic application developers.  Customization options
 have been tested to the extreme with more than 250 corporate customers and
 over 30 line-of-business application providers (software vendors) using
 ProClarity to deliver analytic applications.  Customization and development is
 supported through an extensive SDK.
     "We are extremely impressed with the power, scalability and ease of
 installation of the ProClarity Enterprise Server 4.0," said Gerry Henstra,
 Partner, Information Technology of Mosiac-InfoForce.  "We are currently using
 it internally to analyze business and performance metrics for our field force
 of 2000 people.  Mosaic-InfoForce delivers retail observations in all channels
 within 24 hours to our clients via the web.  Following commercial
 availability, we will also be using ProClarity 4.0 to extend our web solutions
 to include OLAP to our customers via a B2B Extranet application."
     "The larger challenge for companies in today's economy is to optimize the
 efficiency of business processes to ensure they can meet their profitability
 goals," said Mark Smith, President, Full Circle Strategies.  "ProClarity
 Analytic Platform 4.0 enables companies to rapidly deploy a new class of
 performance management applications that enables people to effectively
 contribute to organizational performance."

 Middle East, Africa and Australia and will be commercially available on
