Direct Marketing Subsidiary of Deutsche Post to Analyze Customer Potential and Perform High Performance Address Counting

Hamburg/Montreal February 17th, 2005 - SAND Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: SNDT), an innovator in analytic application infrastructure, today announced that Deutsche Post Direkt GmbH, a company specializing in providing customized addresses and document management services, will employ the SAND Analytic Server to build a centralized database that will enable high performance analysis of customer potential. When the project is completed, Deutsche Post Direkt customers and prospects will be able to use this technology to focus their marketing programs by conducting immediate interactive analysis on the addresses of all households that are of interest to them, prior to actually purchasing the lists.

The company’s decision was based on the superior query performance provided by SAND Analytic Server. Even with a high degree of indexing, conventional relational database systems would be unable to handle the large volume of data managed in the Deutsche Post Direkt database -- some 37 million addresses containing approximately 80 attributes each. Because SAND Analytic Server does not require any external indexing or special data design schema, the footprint of the resulting SAND Analytic Server is much smaller than that of an equivalent relational database, and all detailed data is available to business users immediately after it has been loaded, allowing them to perform complex queries on any of the addresses contained in the database.

Terms of the contract were not announced.
