Business Intelligence Module Added to Technologically Advanced Viewpoint V6 Software® Product Suite
PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viewpoint Construction Software™, a leader in software for the construction industry, today introduced the addition of the Business Intelligence module for Viewpoint’s industry-leading construction information system, Viewpoint V6 Software, that allows construction companies to spot financial and operational trends, and effectively monitor business activities, and make data-driven business-critical decisions faster.
“Developing Viewpoint V6 Software in the .NET framework allows Viewpoint to leverage the full functionality of all related Microsoft products and other software written to those standards.”
Business Intelligence presents a graphical view of business performance. Fully integrated within the Viewpoint V6 Software client and Microsoft® SQL database, Business Intelligence utilizes OLAP cubes to build user-friendly data views and Microsoft Excel 2007 to deliver a highly customizable and graphical user experience.
“Business Intelligence expands and extends the value of the industry’s first construction information system built on the Microsoft .NET platform, Viewpoint V6 Software,” noted Viewpoint Construction Software President Myrna Hostetler.
Business Intelligence delivers with prebuilt Excel 2007 dashboard templates that are easily customizable to meet individual user needs, pivot tables for detail drilldowns, and templates that utilize the new charting capabilities of Excel 2007.
“Business Intelligence again highlights one of the large competitive advantages of developing on the ubiquitous Microsoft platform,” stated Viewpoint Development Director Rob Humphreys. “Developing Viewpoint V6 Software in the .NET framework allows Viewpoint to leverage the full functionality of all related Microsoft products and other software written to those standards.”
Humphreys noted that Viewpoint V6 Software Business Intelligence perfectly complements existing Viewpoint products by delivering to the end user a highly customizable, easy-to-use application, built on the right technology for the construction industry.
The Business Intelligence OLAP cubes are built using Business Intelligence Development Studio which is included with Microsoft SQL Server client tools. The cubes are stored in a Microsoft Analysis Services data base and can be accessed by other third-party tools that communicate with Microsoft Analysis Services such as Reporting Services, Performance Point Server and SharePoint. Additionally, SQL Server can be configured to automatically load information into the cube on a scheduled basis.
