Microsoft-friendly BI vendors roll out new products

Panorama Software Inc and ProClarity Corp, two business intelligence vendors that have more or less thrown their technology lots with Microsoft Corp's SQL Server platform, unveiled upgraded products this week, to coincide with the official worldwide launch of SQL Server 2005 database.

By CBR Staff Writer

Both companies say the new versions tap into the new BI and data integration capabilities included in SQL Server 2005.

Toronto-based Panorama, which developed the original OLAP technology behind SQL Server’s Analysis Services component has announced a 5.0 version of its Panorama BI system which integrates analytics, reporting and dashboarding tools.

Version 5.0 includes a laundry list of new functionality that leverage key advances included in the core SQL Server 2005 database architecture for BI.

These include a new powerful and adaptive information management server that supports defining and executing complex business models, guided analysis for root-cause analysis, offline analysis, better charting and visualization, tighter integration with Microsoft Office and SharePoint environments, unfied security and a new .NET client.

Meanwhile ProClarity’s Analytics 6, version 6.1 software also taps into the enhanced BI features in SQL Server 2005 offering advanced support for UDM (unified dimensional model), an improved analytic dashboarding server, report publishing capabilities, and tight integration with Microsoft’s Microsoft Office Business Scorecard Manager application.
