STARLIMS Achieves New Level of SAP Certification: SAP-certified Integration With SAP(r) ERP Via Enterprise Services

HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Jan. 14, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — STARLIMS Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq:LIMS), a leading provider of laboratory information management systems, or LIMS, today announced that STARLIMS V10 R2 has achieved a new level of certification from SAP AG, achieving SAP-certified integration with the SAP(r) ERP application Release 6.0 via enterprise services.

The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that STARLIMS V10 R2 successfully integrates with SAP ERP 6.0 via the SAP integration scenario Enterprise Service Bundle (ESOA-Bundle) 1.0 interface. Having achieved this level of certification, STARLIMS can be integrated with a very wide variety of SAP applications — including any application exposing enterprise services that are made available as part of the SAP enhancement packages for SAP ERP, or as a specific software add-on for other SAP Business Suite applications. Customers using STARLIMS with SAP solutions can benefit from interoperability, enhanced flexibility and lower cost of ownership.

STARLIMS: Enterprise-wide Integration

STARLIMS has previously achieved SAP-certified integration. This new SAP certification is for web-based integration using STARLIMS’s ability to expose and consume web services; it is not limited to a single SAP application or sphere of services.

“We are extremely pleased that STARLIMS V10 has obtained this certification from SAP, which verifies that our web-based LIMS can be integrated with a large range of SAP applications — via web-based enterprise services,” said STARLIMS CEO Itschak Friedman. “Companies that implement STARLIMS together with their SAP solutions will be able to draw their lab data into their enterprise decision-making process. The combined information will be more readily available and more closely integrated into executive functions. In addition, for companies that already use SAP solutions, STARLIMS is now an even more attractive LIMS provider.”

Lab Data Readily Available for Corporate Decision-makers

One of the greatest IT challenges in any large organization is how to integrate multiple information systems — and how to make sure that critical information is presented to decision-makers in a timely manner. In many cases, laboratory management systems are integrated into larger enterprise systems through point-to-point solutions. To make the transfer of information more comprehensive and efficient, STARLIMS has moved from point-to-point to a service-oriented architecture (SOA) which provides enterprises a ready-made solution to integrate their laboratory information (e.g., LIMS, ELN, SDMS, etc.) together with their enterprise systems.

“This is a perfect example of how lab data translates into enterprise action,” states Freidman. “And it helps prevent the problem in large and distributed organizations, of one division making decisions without being fully aware of all the scientific information in the corporate LIMS.”
