Great Plains, Knosys Team Up

Great Plains signed a worldwide OEM agreement with Knosys to imbed the analytical functionality of the ProClarity Analytical Platform into its Microsoft SQL Server-based products, including Enterprise Reporting, FRx Desktop and FRx Professional, Dynamics, Solomon IV, and eEnterprise. The ProClarity Analytical Platform lets users build custom analytical applications around Microsoft SQL Server OLAP/Analysis Services. ProClarity can be customized with Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications, and the ProClarity Analytical Platform can create custom solutions to meet specific analysis needs. ProClarity Analytical Platform has a fully open, extensible, and documented Windows DNA 2000/COM architecture. The solution allows decision-makers to explore complex information, and helps them visualize trends, patterns, and relationships within Great Plains solutions. Great Plains Enterprise Reporting combines data from disparate locations and allows consolidation of unlimited departments, markets, and subsidiaries from multiple databases and countries. FRx is an advanced graphical reporting tool that works with leading backoffice systems, including Great Plains’ Dynamics, eEnterprise , and Solomon IV e-business solutions designed to meet broad mid-market needs. “The agreement between Great Plains and Knosys is an excellent example of two Microsoft platform developers partnering to provide enhanced analytic capabilities to the extensive mid-market community,” said John Eng, lead product manager for SQL Server at Microsoft. “By delivering analysis solutions on the SQL Server platform, Great Plains and Knosys are empowering customers to make more informed business decisions, ultimately enabling them to be more responsive to customers, increase profitability, and remain competitive.”
