As indicated, (CI No 3,139) on-line analtyical processing tool vendor Brio Technology Inc, has upgraded its Brio Enterprise application suite, which it says will now enable access to the datawarehouse or datamart from anywhere, by using the Web as the user interface. With Enterprise 5.0 the Mountain View, California-based company is changing its strategy, moving away from Desktop decision support tools for specialist users to providing enterprise-wide access to the datawarehouse for a maximum number of users – including roving staff, customers and suppliers – outside of the firm – by deploying the Internet and intranets. Enterprise 5.0 has two new applications: BrioQuery.Insight which enables on-line processing within the Web browser and .QuickView which provides a multi-faceted view of the mined data – charts, tables highlights – rather than just static HTML pages. The BrioQuery Navigator, Explorer and Designer modules come from its predecessor, as does the BrioQuery.Server addition from Novermber last year (CI No 3,029). Brio claims it is the only datawarehousing tool firm to deliver a single integrated application that caters for the different classes of users across the enterprise, while its rivals Cognos Software Inc and Business Objects SA have separate products for each level of user. Brio also announced the integration of Enterprise 5.0 with Arbor Software Corp’s Essbase multi-dimensional database. Enterprise 5.0 is available now, priced at $800 per user. The .Insight and .QuickView modules cost $400 and $50 per user respectively, while .Server on NT costs $20,000; Unix Server prices are not available.
