Stratature Strengthens Alliance with Cognos for Master Data Management.

ATLANTA -- Stratature, Inc., a leader in enterprise dimension management (EDM) and master data management (MDM), today announced its support for the recently launched Cognos 8 Business Intelligence, the industry's first product that provides the complete range of BI functionality on a single, proven Web services-based architecture.

"In June of this year, Stratature and Cognos announced a partnership to co-operatively deliver master data management solutions worldwide," said Val Lovicz, Vice President of Strategic Solutions, Stratature. "Building on this relationship, Stratature is excited to deliver +EDM's highly acclaimed dimensional and master data reporting via Cognos 8 BI reporting."

Stratature's flagship master data management product, +EDM(R), centralizes the management of the dimensions, hierarchies and master data that support business intelligence, data warehouse, ERP, financial and operational systems across the enterprise. +EDM enables customers to increase productivity, ensure data integrity and maximize their return on investment (ROI) from both current and future technology investments.

Dimensional and master data reporting is critical to a best-practice master data management strategy. For example, the ability to report on the changes to a dimension and its underlying master data from creation, to validation, to publication; or the ability to compare the differences between any two versions of a reporting hierarchy and its master data, are key to ensuring data integrity and satisfying compliance requirements. Delivering +EDM reporting via Cognos 8 BI combines the most comprehensive master data management reporting capabilities with the world's most complete business intelligence reporting solution.

Stratature's relationship with Cognos is an integral part of their business. Two of Cognos' most successful Platinum Reseller partners worldwide, Decision Resources in Melbourne, Australia, and Niteo Partners, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NEC Corporation, in New York, are certified Stratature resellers. In addition, COMPUEXCEL, a Canadian-based company and Cognos Reseller, is a Stratature reseller and +EDM training partner.

"In fact, Decision Resources' success with the use of +EDM and Cognos together prompted Stratature's collaboration with them to ensure a strong implementation of the Cognos 8 BI functionality," commented Megan Gregory, Director of Channel Management, Stratature. "This presents Cognos customers with an open master data management solution--ensuring accurate and consistent data and data structures across their IT portfolio--that delivers dimensional and master data reporting directly to their enterprise business intelligence platform."

"Today's announcement ensures that Cognos customers and partners worldwide can take full advantage of dimensional and master data reporting with +EDM, from the library of pre-defined dimension life-cycle and comparative reports, to the endless options of ad-hoc and customized reporting," said Lovicz.

Cognos customers and partners worldwide are invited to attend a webinar on November 9, 2005, demonstrating the power of master data management with +EDM and Cognos 8 BI. To register, please visit
