To extend its SQL Server Analysis Services engine support with Microsoft’s PowerPivot
Business intelligence provider Panorama Software had unveiled its plans for the next release of its flagship product suite NovaView, which will extend its SQL Server Analysis Services support to natively support Microsoft’s new PowerPivot.
The company said that the new offering will shorten the process of connecting to any data source and enable users to analyse data from one or multiple data sources in a web BI interface.
By combining PowerPivot’s power with the NovaView suite, information workers can save time associated with connecting to a data source and creating interactive reports and dashboards.
Panorama said that it will also integrate the new suite with the traditional SQL Server Analysis Services engine, Excel 2010 and SharePoint, enabling users to perform deeper analysis in a web environment.
Amir Netz, senior architect at Panorama Software, said: We have invested a lot of time and effort developing PowerPivot into a leading in-memory engine. Panorama is taking major steps towards integrating it with its comprehensive BI offering, and we expect the company to drive new, innovative solutions based on our new technology.
Eynan Azarya, CEO, said: Microsoft is about to release one of the biggest revolutions and innovations in BI with Microsoft PowerPivot. We plan to make that innovation a major differentiator for Panorama and will offer the ultimate in-memory based BI solution in the market.
NovaView will provide ad hoc offerings combined with the added advantages of in-memory functionality and NovaView’s powerful and intuitive user interface will provide new ways for analysts and information workers to generate impactful insights, the company added.
