SwiftKnowledge, a provider of web-based business intelligence (BI) software, has released SwiftKnowledge for the Enterprise, a web-based BI application designed for interactive, high-volume use by non-technical business users.
The company said that the new offering, based on the company’s BI platform, leverages a Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services data infrastructure. It powers BI applications that deliver an ad-hoc analysis experience to users in web time via a zero-footprint web deployment.
According to SwiftKnowledge, the new platform incorporates interactive data streaming (IDS) and component-level security (CLS) and software also allows both technical and non-technical users to access unified information that may be located across multiple repositories and data systems. It enables users to share the configurable views and analyses they create with other employees, without needing additional downloads or software licenses.
The company claims that the new software is 100% browser-based, with no downloads or plug-ins; and its in-memory technology allows users to get answers to ad-hoc analyses. The look-and-feel and functionality can be customised to integrate any part of the platform with in-house, commercial on-premise, or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications or appliances.
In addition, the CLS offers targeted content, features and functionality according to users’ role and profile, and secures data granularly down to the individual cell.
