e.Intelligence Launches Version 4.1 of Collaborative Business Intelligence Platform
Minneapolis, Minn., Nov. 14, 2000 ? e.Intelligence, Inc., a leader in extending the data warehouse to deliver analytical supply-chain solutions, announced the availability of e.Intelligence Suite 4.1, an upgrade to its collaborative business intelligence (c-BI) software platform for large scale data analyses. The suite enables Web-based users throughout an organization to conduct analyses ? and collaborate with others to refine these analyses ? via a collaborative hub. This hub utilizes the high volume, complex real-time data from the organization's data warehouse, thereby allowing users to make dynamic, consensus-based decisions that improve e-commerce and supply-chain planning.
e.Intelligence Suite 4.1 offers improved Web accessibility, enhanced database read-write performance for statistical and collaborative analysis, editable calculated facts, and enhanced auditing capabilities. Version 4.1 also improves on earlier versions by allowing data to be imported and exported to Excel spreadsheets to extend the reach of business intelligence (BI) into an analytic environment that has not been served by traditional BI tools.
"This upgrade is part of our ongoing quest to improve the integration of business intelligence and business processes," said Richard Tanler, president and CEO of e.Intelligence. "Our goal is to promote consensus decision making within enterprises and B2B exchanges. With version 4.1, non-technical users can conduct `what-if' analyses to build more accurate plans and make informed decisions faster. Collaboration is crucial for forecasting, planning, merchandising, procurement and logistics to lower operational costs and improve customer satisfaction."
