As part of its strategy to deliver open, flexible, customizable platforms for the SQL Server 7.0 OLAP technology environment, Knosys Inc. is licensing Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and will integrate it into future ProClarity product releases. VBA integration and ProClarity's open architecture provide customization capabilities to respond to constantly changing analysis and information communication problems that can't be solved with non-extensible applications. In addition, VBA is universally accepted among Valued Added Resellers (VARs), system integrators, developers, and OEMs to address specific business challenges. VBA provides developers with high levels of productivity, performance, and interoperability with other COM-based components. The VBA development environment, embedded directly into a host application, is accessible immediately to more than 3 million Visual Basic developers.
