HOUSTON -- February 25, 2013

PROS^® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, today announced that industry
visionary and thought leader Tom Davenport will deliver the keynote address at
its Outperform 2013 Conference. The annual event, sponsored by Microsoft, will
be held April 3-4 at the world-renowned New York Stock Exchange. The
conference brings together a select group of pricing, sales and marketing
executives from business-to-business industries who recognize the advantages
of leveraging big data to drive sales growth.

Sharing the stage with Tom Davenport during the two-day big data event will be
PROS customers and industry thought leaders who are experts in pricing and
sales effectiveness. They will deliver comments that address compelling topics
at the top of today’s business agenda:

  *Sales Management in a Buying 2.0 World
  *How Big Data Gives Your Sales Team a Competitive Advantage
  *Pricing in the C-Suite: Raise Awareness, Get Attention & Enroll Top
    Executives on the Pricing Journey
  *Are You the Only One Convinced of Pricing Technology?

Davenport’s address will provide insights on how organizations can use big
data to make smarter decisions and achieve better results. A highly regarded
thought leader, he is recognized as one of the world’s top 25 consultants; one
of the 100 most influential people in the IT industry; and one of the top 50
business school professors in the United States. A prolific writer, he has
written or co-authored 14 books, including several firsts in big data and
analytics as competitive differentiators. Davenport’s big data and analytics
concepts, initially introduced in a Harvard Business Review (HBR) article
titled “Competing on Analytics,” have been recognized by the HBR editors as
one of the most important management ideas of the past decade, and the article
remains one of its ten most-read features in the magazine’s 90-year history.

“Organizations can easily be overwhelmed by the volumes of data that are
available to them, whether it’s from their ERP and CRM systems or external
sources,” said Davenport. “There’s plenty of juice in that data, and with the
right applications and analytics, they’re sitting on a gold mine that can help
inform strategic decisions. Ultimately, those that employ big data to drive
business decisions and sales will be far ahead of their competitors,” said
Davenport.

“Our annual conference provides participants with exceptional opportunities to
hear firsthand from customers who share their stories about the
transformational advantages of big data that improve pricing and sales
effectiveness,” said PROS Chief Marketing Officer Tim Girgenti. “We welcome
Tom Davenport, one of the world’s foremost business authorities, who will
offer insights and guidance on how to monetize big data.”
