HiQube Enhances Value of BI Platform with HiQube 5.0


HiQube, a high-performance business intelligence (BI) software company, today announced the release of HiQube 5.0, a new version of the company's flagship BI platform. This latest version includes numerous upgrades to the platform's functionality, scalability and ease of use, most notably increased international language support and enhanced security features.

ebizQ received the following:

HiQube 5.0 provides support for Unicode, the industry standard for allowing technologies to represent and manipulate text consistently for most of the world's languages. With the incorporation of Unicode, HiQube 5.0 now supports numerous additional languages, including multiple Asian languages such as Japanese and Chinese dialects.

Without proper governance SOA can become inflexible, expensive, and ultimately ineffective. Learn effective SOA governance at this ebizQ webinar!

"The internationalization of the BI platform is the real headliner for this release," said Robert Lewis, vice president of global sales for HiQube. "Many of our customers are large international organizations, many with numerous offices throughout the world. It's important to be able to share information and mine it regardless of the language in which data was input into systems. Even small and mid-sized businesses benefit, especially if they plan to diversify globally over time. With the release of HiQube 5.0, businesses can have a better picture of their global operations."

By implementing the Unicode standard, the HiQube 5.0 user interface can be rendered in multiple languages, and as importantly, all of the underlying information, including user comments, can be translated into other languages to support global collaboration.

The second major new feature in HiQube 5.0 is improved access list management, which increases the platform’s security and protects the underlying data model. As the BI platform transcends the IT department and is deployed throughout organizations, customers need to limit the number of users that can edit the data model to protect the underlying data.

Though previous versions of the Web application could shield the data model from end-user manipulation, the desktop application was able to make changes to it. With the increased number of power users in the organization outside of the IT department, HiQube 5.0 implements enhanced access list management in this latest version, which allows customers to roll out full-featured desktop versions of the software to power users, and only those users on the access list can edit the data model. This ensures visibility into the entire BI process without compromising data results, delivering results that are consistent and preserved across the enterprise.

HiQube 5.0 also includes scalability enhancements. Unlike “in memory” BI platforms that analyze static, cached data, HiQube performs queries “on the fly” against ever-changing data to get the most-up-to-date information into the hands of business analysts. Despite the significant increase in the amount of computing power required to run a real-time query versus a query against cached data, HiQube can still match the speeds provided by in-memory systems, offering unmatched performance and scalability.

The new features further enhance the value of the HiQube BI platform for all businesses. HiQube 5.0 ranks as one of the most scalable, compatible and high-performance BI solutions on the market. HiQube’s technology is easy to use and combines hierarchical, relational and multidimensional BI technologies. HiQube’s technology gives customers the tools they need to perform in-depth business analytics and view data within a superior reporting environment.
