SOUTH HARWICH, Mass. -- December 19, 2012

BackOffice Associates, LLC, a leading provider of data migration and
information governance solutions, with a concentration on enhancing ERP data
quality, today announced that through an original equipment agreement (OEM)
with SAP, it will embed SAP® products for enhancement of the BackOffice
solutions suite. These include SAP Data Services software, which provides a
complete foundation to integrate, improve and manage all relevant information
regardless of data type or location; the SAP BusinessObjects™ Business
Intelligence platform; SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards and SAP Crystal Reports®
software.

“This enhanced partnership will further strengthen our relationship with SAP,”
said David Booth, president and CEO of BackOffice Associates. “And more
importantly, it will allow us to leverage SAP technologies within our own
solutions to provide enhanced offerings to customers. Embedding SAP solutions
with BackOffice solutions allows us to align with our customers’ information
management standards, bringing them significant benefits for achieving
operational excellence, most notably with their use of SAP Data Services.”

As an SAP OEM partner, BackOffice Associates will have access to powerful SAP
technologies that will help optimize business results for customers and
enhance its already successful partnership with SAP. BackOffice is exposing
SAP Data Services as a scalable component throughout the BackOffice technology
stack, allowing it to take advantage of capabilities such as integration
connectors, address validation and profiling.

These solutions will be embedded in the BackOffice Data Stewardship Platform,
which allows a customer to enhance their existing IT infrastructure with
BackOffice’s robust Business Reference Model (BRM) and industry-specific
content. The BRM provides a model for analyzing data for executing business
processes. The BRM also allows BackOffice to rapidly build lightweight web
applications to empower Data Stewards to actively participate in critical data
operations. BackOffice leverages this web access framework, along with its
content library of more than 10,000 callable elements, to deliver high-value
applications focused on data.

The signing of a global OEM agreement with SAP is the latest step in the
history of BackOffice’s successful partnership with SAP. At the end of 2011,
BackOffice became a premier participant in the SAP Consulting Partner Program,
North America, to further accelerate time-to-value on implementations of SAP
solutions. In March 2012, BackOffice joined the SAP PartnerEdge® program as an
SAP services partner, giving BackOffice access to resources, services and
benefits that help it build and maintain a successful partnership with SAP.
BackOffice also offers solutions that have been certified by SAP for
integration with SAP applications.
