Business Intelligence (BI) simplifies daily work in companies worldwide: Complicated data is put together reasonably, gets evaluated and can be used for a set target. But until now there was no standardized approach because every BI-project is different and the common systems hardly allow the reuse of program parts. Nevertheless the demand of BI-solutions continues to grow and BI-consultants face high, individual customer needs.
Regarding this problem the Austrian Start-up company Business Intelligence Accelerator from Hagenberg has a revolutionary solution: Its software of the same name is a Visual Studio Add-Inn, which generates custom-defined settings and efficient guidelines for a standardized use of different BI-projects based on Microsoft technology.
The innovative software Business Intelligence Accelerator (BIA) can be used where ever data needs to be extracted, loaded or transformed. So called SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) packages know how the data needs to be extracted and transformed. Until now these packages had to be put together manually – a potential source of error and a time consuming process.
The Business Intelligence Accelerator is a set of modules, which allow the generation of Microsoft SSIS-packages from predefined templates. Time consuming generation and servicing is not necessary, this is reducing time and cost, not only in the development, but also in running the system. Currently BIA supports Microsoft SQL Server, SAP (separate license from Theobald Software GmbH is necessary) and Flatfiles – the list of supported providers is continuously extended.
BIA Business Intelligence Accelerator supports anyone who is developing BI-solutions based on Microsoft technology, from development through to operation. Time for development is reduced up to 50 percent and the approach on three levels offers a lot of advantages:
1) Many possible templates are already within the scope of supply. These cover the most common integration scenarios. It´s also possible to create a custom made template.
2) The SSIS-generator creates templates automatically. Should there be a change on the ETL-process, may it be the templates or the source system, the packages are updated.
3) The user is creating a complete, totally up to date documentation of his Data Warehouse.
Soon Markus Krenn, CEO of the Austrian company and Microsoft Gold-partner, will present the revolutionary software to an international audience for the first time: in Toronto, Canada at the Microsoft World Partner Conference, which takes place from July 8 to 12, 2012.
The founder and owner of the Hagenberger company, works as a BI-consultant himself, has a lot of experience and knows exactly what is needed. In cooperation with the Erfinderhaus Patentvermarktungs GmbH he is now looking for partners who will support the trend-setting project.
