Isentris Forms and Isentris Data Miner Provide Both ISIS
Users and New Customers a Low-Cost, Low-Risk Path to Improved
R&D Productivity

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Symyx Technologies,
Inc. (Nasdaq:SMMX) has announced two new product offerings, Isentris Forms
and Isentris Data Miner. Symyx Isentris was initially introduced to provide
customers of its market-leading ISIS cheminformatics software a migration
path to improved R&D decision support flexibility and productivity. The two
new product offerings provide ISIS customers a more flexible, phased
migration path to Isentris, and Isentris Forms offers new customers a
low-cost, low-risk introduction to Isentris, without a full-scale

Symyx Isentris improves information access, data analysis, collaboration,
reporting and decision making for scientists working with corporate, project
and commercial information. New scientific applications built on Isentris
deliver improved return on investment because they require lower development
costs and result in more powerful, robust applications with longer life
expectancy than applications built on ISIS technology. Databases and
spreadsheets created in ISIS can be shared in the Isentris environment, and
both systems support the same powerful chemistry and chemical representation

New Isentris Forms offers scientists enhanced query and browse capabilities,
the ability to save, share and re-use search strategies, flexible reporting
options, and improved tools for handling reactions and planning chemical
syntheses. The Isentris Forms package is easier and faster to deploy than
the full Isentris system, enabling researchers to come up to speed quickly
with a minimal learning curve.

The new Isentris Data Miner package, which can be added to Isentris Forms,
enables organizations to upgrade to the full Isentris system.
Isentris Data Miner offers a dynamic approach to exploring, analyzing and
reporting information. Highly interactive tabular data presentations, rapid
filtering of information, powerful visualization techniques and built-in
calculations enable scientists to extract the information they need from
multiple sources for use in SAR analyses and cross-experiment reporting of
laboratory information.

“In today’s challenging business climate, Symyx is pleased to offer a more
flexible, lower cost, fully supported transition pathway to Isentris that
meets individual customer needs both from a financial and a resources
perspective,” said Dr. Trevor Heritage, president of Symyx’s software
business unit. “By taking advantage of our new Isentris-based solutions,
customers can deploy just the Isentris components they need to make better
use of information, collaborate more effectively and work more productively
in their own unique workplace environments.”

The ability to access Isentris functionality and workflows in two packages,
each with its own distinct solutions-based focus, gives R&D organizations
the flexibility to add Isentris Forms now and expand the system later to
meet additional or more complex informatics requirements using Isentris Data
