PROPHIX Planning functionality is very similar to the PerformancePoint offering, but has a much smaller footprint. Partners in the Microsoft Business Intelligence and Dynamics communities who have invested in a PerformancePoint practice have the opportunity to offer very similar software and services while leveraging their SharePoint, Business Intelligence, and ERP knowledge.
Toronto, ON (Vocus) January 29, 2009
Following Microsoft's recent announcement to halt further development on the Planning portion of Office PerformancePoint Server beyond SP3, PROPHIX has announced that it intends to broaden its integration to SharePoint bringing proven planning capabilities via Web Parts.
PROPHIX Software, a leading provider of financial business intelligence and performance management solutions, is set to release an updated version of its SQL Server based solution, which offers integration with SharePoint customers by leveraging Microsoft Reporting Services and its unique Smart Client interface. SharePoint access is available directly within the PROPHIX user interface – giving PROPHIX users the ability to fully access all SharePoint applications including Microsoft's BI offerings. In addition, PROPHIX's Offline Excel capabilities and its Advanced Data Visualization components provide yet another alternative to collaborate with users within SharePoint as opposed to PROPHIX's user interface.
"Planning is an integral component of any Corporate Performance Management solution," says Paul Barber, President and CEO of PROPHIX. "Companies that require a Planning solution that leverages their investment in Microsoft’s SQL Server technology infrastructure have turned to PROPHIX, which is built upon this technology stack – allowing planning data to be a consumable of any Business Intelligence offering. Today, PROPHIX re-affirms its commitment to deliver superior planning solutions that further complements our relationship with Microsoft and its new BI strategy."
Cheryl Power, Director of Channel Partners for PROPHIX, adds, "PROPHIX Planning functionality is very similar to the PerformancePoint offering, but has a much smaller footprint. Partners in the Microsoft Business Intelligence and Dynamics communities who have invested in a PerformancePoint practice have the opportunity to offer very similar software and services while leveraging their SharePoint, Business Intelligence, and ERP knowledge."
