Lyzasoft has launched a new version of collaborative business intelligence product Lyza, which combines the business intelligence and web 2.0 technologies, allowing analytical communities within an enterprise to synthesise data from many sources, visually analyse the data and socialise the findings among the workgroup through an entirely self-serve model.
The company said that the new version comes with visualisation features including chart micro-tiling, improved user format controls, ad hoc visual data drilling, n-dimensional charting, advanced sorting controls and various functions for adding custom fields to charts.
According to Lyzasoft, the collaboration of the new release include a web environment that allows authorised users to search, bookmark, combine, create, tag, share, comment, rate, relate and interact directly with intelligence content in the form of blogs, microblogs, charts, tables, dashboards and collections.
The company said that the web environment is built upon the company’s workflow lineage technology, which allows consumers of analytic assets to audit on-demand the calculations and logic used to create the asset they are viewing. It also incorporates SMS and email alerting, allowing community members to watch for new publications, comments, or updates from people of interest or on topics of interest.
Lyzasoft said that the blend of BI and web 2.0 approaches will enable users to add context to information by engaging in conversation, modification and re-distribution of information assets. Version 2 release of Lyza runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.
The new version of Lyza, available for Windows, Mac and Linux, is priced at $400 for a single machine, one-year subscription with unlimited online support and complimentary product updates, or $2000 per user for a perpetual license and one year of support.
