Antivia, an industry-leading business intelligence (BI) software company and subsidiary of insightsoftware.com, today announced that the latest version of its modern business intelligence platform, DecisionPoint™ version 4, R11, is generally available and now includes native integration into the Salesforce® platform. This new version of DecisionPoint™ provides access to more data sources, increases app designer productivity and features a significant internal re-architecture of the calculation engine to strengthen and streamline its core foundation.
DecisionPoint™ is a fast application creation tool that lets non-programmers turn data into beautiful information applications and interactive dashboards that can be shared with anyone on a web browser, tablet or smartphone, giving business people fingertip access to the information they need to make informed decisions.
A highlight of R11 is a native cloud connector which provides access to Salesforce® and Sage™ Live data from both DecisionPoint™ Designer and DecisionPoint™ Server.
"We want to allow people who are designing information applications to connect to the data that they need, painlessly," said Donald MacCormick, Chief Product and Strategy Officer at Antivia. "That's why, with R11, we've introduced cloud connectors which provide easy access to Salesforce® and Sage™ Live data for our customers. We've also included a number of pre-packaged information applications, including a sales performance app and a lead management app, to help Salesforce® customers get up and running fast so they can deliver immediate value."
With R11, Antivia has focused on helping customers:
- Connect to more data sources including CSV files, Salesforce® and Sage™ Live
- Add extra functionality to information applications with a new funnel component, enhanced navigation and improved chart formatting
- Answer business questions faster thanks to a re-architected data engine that delivers superior performance, particularly on mobile devices
- Work more productively with workflow enhancements for application designers
- Access help more quickly and more easily through a new, online, searchable Help Desk
Antivia has also renamed its standalone product from DecisionPoint™ For Excel to DecisionPoint™ Designer to reflect that it can now access more than just Excel® data. At the same time, DecisionPoint™ Enterprise will now be called DecisionPoint™ Server. These are product name changes only and existing licenses are not affected.
DecisionPoint™ R11 is generally available to customers with a valid support and maintenance agreement.
