HANNOVER, Germany. - March 7, 2013 - Ciber's ProfitBoost-Sales(TM), a newly
developed analytics solution designed to help companies optimize profit
through informed pricing strategies, reached the finals in the SAP HANA
partner race, an SAP-sponsored competition from which winners were recognized
at the 2013 CeBIT conference in Hannover, Germany. The contest drew 26
contenders, and all created a solution for the SAP HANA® platform.

Ciber ProfitBoost-Sales is the initial offering in Ciber's ProfitBoost(TM)
solution suite. The suite also contains Ciber ProfitBoost-Procurement, which
helps organizations analyze and optimize profits in procurement. Upcoming
modules will support companies in finding additional potential profit gains
through materials management and assembly, as well as manufacturing. Ciber
ProfitBoost-Sales and Ciber ProfitBoost-Procurement are planned to be
generally available in the second quarter of 2013.

Designed for either on-premises or cloud-based, on-demand delivery, Ciber
ProfitBoost is based on SAP® Predictive Analysis software. It leverages
algorithms in SAP Predictive Analysis with data mining capabilities in SAP
HANA to help organizations identify, explore and, ultimately, realize
incremental potential profit in sales, delivery and procurement. Ciber
ProfitBoost also integrates with the SAP ERP application, allowing companies
to leverage their existing customer, vendor, product, sales and procurement
data and apply predictive analytics to determine pricing adjustments that
raise profit without impacting new costs. The solution gives users an
executive summary showing the potential profits ready to be realized, as well
as detailed recommendations based on actionable reports.

"One of the factors that differentiates Ciber ProfitBoost from other solutions
in this competition is that Ciber not only used the speed of the SAP HANA
platform but also the built-in predictive algorithms of it," said Volker Kyra,
Ciber's alliance director for SAP in Germany. "That helped Ciber make Ciber
ProfitBoost a solution, which can be live in less than a week to give users
powerful insights and actionable advice."

"This is the kind of client-focused solution Ciber prides itself on
delivering, a solution that proactively meets client needs and achieves solid
business results," said Dave Peterschmidt, Ciber chief executive officer.
"This one leverages two key trends our clients face: big data and cloud
