TORONTO (09/09/03) - Panorama Software today announced the company's NovaView(TM) BI Platform will support the forthcoming Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, delivering the most complete business intelligence solution to extend the reach of BI throughout the enterprise. Panorama's NovaView integrated with Reporting Services provides companies with a comprehensive business intelligence environment to easily build and deploy analytic and reporting solutions that are collaborative, and allow any decision maker to access and analyze data, and then create reports that can be delivered to any user, anywhere. These solutions provide the relevant information and proactive intelligence needed to make the best decisions to generate great results.

Reporting Services is the first version release of Microsoft's reporting server. It provides a new server-based reporting platform that allows companies to create and manage tabular, matrix, graphical, and free-form reports that contain data from relational and multidimensional data sources. Panorama complements Microsoft Reporting Services with sophisticated analysis capabilities such as drilling and filtering, pivoting and changing hierarchies, user-defined measures and extensive user defined exceptions. Key benefits of the combination of NovaView and Reporting Services include:

  • Low total cost of ownership
  • Integrated production reporting and powerful analytics
  • Fewer tools to manage and integrate
  • Lower training and deployment costs with faster deployment cycles
  • High performance Web architecture that scales to a large number of users
  • Ability to deliver reports to any user, anytime and on different devices
  • Centralized report archiving, management and security

    The integration of Panorama's NovaView business intelligence platform with Microsoft Reporting Services creates a single solution that meets the analytic and reporting needs of all decision makers. Microsoft Reporting Services is designed to deliver production reporting - report management capabilities, indexing reports, extended delivery services - while Panorama's NovaView delivers near real-time analysis and OLAP reporting capabilities. Microsoft Reporting Services further enhances Panorama's powerful analytic and reporting platform by providing the ability to query and display information from multiple sources, such as OLAP and relational data. Reporting Services also augments NovaView's alert and notification services with additional report scheduling and delivery functionality. Panorama plans to demonstrate their enhanced reporting functionality at the November 2003 PASS Community Summit in Seattle.
