ProClarity Announces New ProClarity for Reporting
Designed for Microsoft SQL Server 2000
Reporting Services, ProClarity product delivers seamless integration providing
customers with comprehensive and cost-effective reporting and analysis solution
BOISE, Idaho, January 27, 2004 - ProClarity Corporation, a leading
provider of analytic application technology for the enterprise, today announced
ProClarity for Reporting Services, a new product designed to enhance Microsoft
SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services with sophisticated analytical functionality.
ProClarity for Reporting Services provides an easy transition from viewing a
report to analyzing data with a single mouse click. Business users can gain a
better understanding of their reports by using ProClarity to analyze their data
without having to request new reports from IT, thereby greatly reducing the time
to make faster, smarter decisions.
"For industry partners such as ProClarity, SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services
provides a cost-effective, integrated reporting solution that makes it easy to
build custom business intelligence applications," said Tom Rizzo, Director of
Product Management for Microsoft SQL Server at Microsoft Corp. "This a natural
complement to the customizable analytics platform ProClarity provides. Mutual
Microsoft and ProClarity customers will benefit from a seamless and
comprehensive reporting and analysis solution that empowers employees at every
level to have better access to information, increasing their ability to make
more-informed decisions and enhance business value."
With the integration of SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services and the ProClarity
family, Microsoft and ProClarity will deliver business intelligence (BI)
capabilities beyond those available from traditional BI vendors and at a value
point that cannot be achieved with other vendors' technology. ProClarity for
Reporting Services offers the following benefits to enterprise decision makers
by combining the rich relational reporting environment of Reporting Services
with the best-in-class analytic capabilities of the ProClarity product family.
Reduce the Time and Effort to Create OLAP Reports
Report authors can now create reports in Reporting Services without having to
write complex MDX queries by hand. OLAP data sets and queries are created using
ProClarity's intuitive user interface. ProClarity lets authors create and
publish reports using the Reporting Services XML Report Definition Language (RDL).
ProClarity also gives authors the ability to create new OLAP data sets-or edit
existing data sets-for current reports.
Increase Insight and Understanding
Authors can place a link on a Reporting Services report that will take report
consumers into ProClarity where they can use ProClarity's patented Decomposition
Tree and other advanced visualization features to analyze report data and gain a
deeper understanding of their business. This saves a considerable amount of time
and helps report authors be more efficient, because report consumers can access
relevant data on their own.
Lower Cost of Ownership
IT administrators can now lower the total cost of BI ownership by adopting
Microsoft Reporting Services, instead of acquiring a third-party reporting
product. A company's investment in SQL Server 2000 and ProClarity is also
protected, because both are built on common technology stacks and are completely
"ProClarity for Reporting Services integrates seamlessly with Microsoft SQL
Server 2000 Reporting Services to provide customers and prospects with a
comprehensive and cost-effective customizable reporting and analysis solution to
meet their unique needs," said Clay Young, senior vice president of ProClarity
Corporation. "Existing customers can now enhance their ProClarity applications
by adding reporting functionality for a complete BI solution at a value point
that cannot be achieved elsewhere."
ProClarity for Reporting Services is designed specifically for use with
Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, Report Designer, and ProClarity®
Analytics Server. For more information about ProClarity for Reporting Services,
