Financial management and accounting house Hyperion Software Corp has spun up some Spider-Man web delivery software which it says will provide access to data held on Hyperion Software databases via standard web browsers. Spider-Man comes with Hyperion’s Common Data Access middleware, said to enable the re-use of application report objects. Users are able to access information without the extra baggage of query and reporting tools, claims the Stamford, Connecticut-based company. The application sits on the server, eliminating workstation installation, and supports Microsoft Corp’s Internet Information Server on Windows NT and standard Hypertext Markup Language-compliant client browsers. Spider-Man integrates dynamic application reporting and analysis capabilities such as report viewing, drill downs and filter sorting over intranets and the Internet. It uses existing application report and intelligent pointers as web page tags or links to access integrated application information via a web browser. It automatically converts real-time, dynamic reports to HTML and uses standard HTML-based web tools and JavaScript to design web pages. Hyperion has delivered a four-level security model including a Secure Socket layer protocol, server-side system software, firewall software and application user identification and password. The Spider-Man software makes use of Java and ActiveX for analytical and real-time processing. Pricing depends on configuration.
