Los Altos, CA (PRWEB) December 22, 2008
Decision Support Panel (DSPanel) today announced its Performance Canvas 1.3 has achieved SAP® Certified - Integration with SAP NetWeaver® status. For customers, they now will be able to create Performance Dashboards and Scorecards combining data from the SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence (SAP NetWeaver BI) component with other OLAP data, such as data from Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2005.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that Performance Canvas 1.3 integrates with SAP NetWeaver BI 3.0 via the XML for Analysis for SAP NetWeaver BI 3.0 (BW-XMLA) interface.
Performance Canvas enables ordinary business users to create Mobile, Web and Microsoft SharePoint Dashboards and Scorecards. With the SAP certification of Performance Canvas, DSPanel takes another step in showing the business community how using Web technology changes what business intelligence (BI) means to business users throughout the world. The Performance Canvas product is created not to change the fundamental design of BI chosen by each organization, but to augment it and create sustainable competitive advantage by letting users collaborate and add knowledge optimizing key organizational processes.
"We are the leader in using Web technology to provide business users with OLAP BI tools with little or no need of assistance from IT or consultants," said Peder Ekstrand, chairman and co-founder of DSPanel. "With this certification of Performance Canvas, our unique value proposition is extended to customers also using SAP solutions. Furthermore it creates unique possibilities for users of blending business intelligence data from several systems on their own screens without need of assistance from IT staff or specialists."
Performance Canvas hides the complexity of traditional BI tools when it comes to modifying, editing and transforming MDX, the universal language of BI. Simple business building blocks are used to create, change and adapt the BI support for each enterprise. This creates an adaptable and agile BI authoring infrastructure with minimal need for assistance from specialists.
"Performance Canvas is an extremely versatile product platform. Integrating with a data warehousing solution from a vendor like SAP is not hard for us," said Niklas Derouche, CTO of DSPanel. "During 2009 we plan to provide further integration support in the product, including for other major OLAP and relational databases. This is a logical extension of the multi-platform strategy we have in the front end, supporting Mobile, Web, Microsoft SharePoint and Web service integration."
DSPanel's Performance Canvas includes the Performance Canvas Application Server, featuring the Canvas Designer, the Canvas Explorer and Microsoft SharePoint Connector, as well as samples and online training. It provides immediate business value on top of the Microsoft BI platform, featuring advanced support for communication, collaboration and actions. The software works with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, Microsoft SQL Server and the Microsoft Office productivity suite, including Outlook, PowerPoint, Word and Excel, as well as SAP NetWeaver BI.
