PANORAMA SOFTWARE COLLABORATES WITH CIZER SOFTWARE TO DELIVER MORE POWERFUL BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE SOLUTIONS FOR THE MICRSOFT PLATFORM :
TORONTO, ONTERIO Apr 1, 2004 - Panorama Software, a leader in business intelligence (BI) solutions for the Microsoft platform, today announced a collaborative relationship with Cizer Software (Dulles, VA) resulting in the delivery of an enhanced BI solution combining the strengths of two Microsoft partners. To further extend Panorama’s enterprise reporting capabilities, the company will integrate Cizer Quick Query through a joint development agreement.
Eynav Azarya, CEO of Panorama Software said, "Combining the solutions developed by Panorama and Cizer - two highly ranked Microsoft BI partners – will result in more powerful and robust BI solutions that leverage and maximize the Microsoft platform, delivering a unique competitive advantage to all businesses."
Panorama’s current BI solution integrates analysis, enterprise reporting and performance measurement into a single software suite which allows any decision maker to access and analyze data, and create reports that can be delivered to users, anywhere. BI applications from Panorama deliver web-based, near real-time analysis and OLAP reporting capabilities, in addition to query and display from multiple relational data sources.
A key differentiator of the soon-to-be-launched integrated solution from Panorama and Cizer is the ability to conduct ‘ad hoc’ query and report functions from not just relational data sources, but multidimensional sources. Hundreds of companies in the financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, telecommunications and retail markets currently use Panorama’s technology.
"The joint development plans between Panorama and Cizer will successfully bring enhanced reporting and analysis tools to businesses in countries around the world," said Doug Harts, CTO of Cizer Software. "We recognize the benefits of this relationship are not only to our individual businesses, but those organizations seeking robust BI solutions which can become the cornerstone to their future growth and success."
