Alphablox releases Alphablox 5 for enterprise analytic solutions

  • 10 June, 2003 16:13

<p>Alphablox™ Corporation, a leading provider of enterprise analytic solutions, today announced the release of Alphablox 5, a major upgrade to its award-winning business analytics platform.</p>
<p>Alphablox 5 has been specifically designed to enable rapid assembly of a broad range of analytic applications that provide decision makers across the enterprise with highly usable solutions to help improve decision-making and drive effective actions. Though traditional business intelligence solutions have attempted to address this need, they are often difficult to deploy and use, or are limited in the type of analysis they enable.</p>
<p>"Today, analytic solutions should empower individuals at all levels with knowledge to make effective decisions, and the solutions should deliver a rapid ROI for increased profitability," said Graham Sammells, General Manager of Alphablox Australasia. "With this new release, enterprises will give even more power to users, from executives to the front lines, providing them with contextual business information that will drive identified business results and achieve a rapid ROI."</p>
<p>“With over 8,000 users in Australia, Alphablox Australasia’s customers have had a very important role in determining the enhancements and direction of Alphablox 5. We are delivering on our assurance of customer satisfaction by providing what our customers want on a local level," said Mr Sammells</p>
<p>Collaboration, Flexibility and Speed out of the “Blox”</p>
<p>The new release Alphablox 5 extends the reach of analytical applications and allows collaboration for all levels of users throughout an enterprise by:</p>
<p>Addressing the differing needs of users by bringing flexibility down to the user interface level with user customizable web interfaces and views.</p>
<p>Improving delivery time of Alphablox analytical applications with new pre-packaged functionality, to allow users to create their own applications and alleviate the need for programming.</p>
<p>Enabling collaborative analysis between users right down to the cell level.</p>
<p>Providing more power for large production environments with new deployment options, additional data sources, greater scalability and improved security integration.</p>
<p>"Alphablox 5 is the platform we have chosen to develop and deploy our next-generation analytic solutions," said Dean Haraguchi, regional manager from Beacon Analytics Inc.</p>
<p>"Alphablox 5 gives us the flexibility we need to customise our applications and really focus on incorporating our retail and healthcare domain expertise into our customised analytic solutions."</p>
<p>Key features of Alphablox 5</p>
<p>A new industry-leading, extensible, DHTML client which gives users the ability to flexibility to display data the way they need it.</p>
<p>CommentsBlox allows comments to be added down to individual cells and displays a cell indicator when comments are present, improving user collaboration and empowering users with collaborative analysis.</p>
<p>FastForward allows users to customise their own reporting and analysis solutions by selecting and saving report views from a navigation menu, and building new report views using templates.</p>
<p>Blox™ components that package commonly used functionality, a more powerful calculation engine, and bookmark enhancements allow easy development of enterprise-wide solutions.</p>
<p>Alphablox 5 also includes greater ability to leverage leading OLAP data sources and has increased OLAP support for Hyperion Essbase XTD, including Essbase Enterprise Services (EES) and Hybrid Analysis support; and Microsoft Analysis Services including drillthrough.</p>
<p>To ease deployments in large production environments, the Alphablox 5 release has new capabilities, such as easier integration with security packages, and support for clustering and relational connection pooling through application servers.
