ABC Technologies, the global leader in business modelling and performance measurement software, today announced the release of the Oros Active Enterprise Management platform Oros AEM. Developed in conjunction with companies including global communications group Sprint Corporation, Oros AEM enables organisations to receive the most comprehensive and accurate picture of their enterprise today. The web enabled suite includes both dynamic, multi-dimensional activity based analysis and pre-defined reports that are far more accurate and useable for effective management decision making than conventional reporting or general purpose OLAP solutions.

The Oros AEM(suite has been developed to supply detailed analysis on key functional areas including customer profitability, new product or service opportunities and suggested areas for improving trading partner relationships. Managers can retrieve key reports, scorecards and profitability information via the Internet and can save these "snapshots" for off-line analysis. Oros AEM also enables "what if" scenario analysis that allows teams to review strategic and operational alternatives before committing to a process or implementing costly changes.

Oros AEM platform to enable better decision making at Sprint Corporation

Sprint Corporation was amongst several major companies that participated in the development of Oros Enterprise. "Sprint is very excited about the new Oros AEM platform," said Jeff Ehrlich, Manager, Finance Knowledge Management, Sprint Corporation.
"Oros achieves active management elegantly in an environment that makes collaboration very easy. For us the real advantage is its solid, activity based modeling foundation, which will significantly enhance our decision-making ability. Additionally, Sprint and other companies will be able to undertake long term forecasting as a result of Oros AEM's unique, flexible architecture."

Don McDougall, President and COO of ABC Technologies said, "The Oros (AEM( suite has combined the advantages of activity based analysis with the benefits of state of the art reporting and OLAP tools creating a unique web-enabled tool for key decision makers."

The first application in the Oros AEM suite is the Oros(r) Enterprise Analyzer. The Oros Enterprise Analyzer provides pre-defined reports to enhance decision-critical profitability, cost and process information obtained from ABC Technologies existing Oros Analytics applications.

Actively Managing the Enterprise

Oros AEM leverages Microsoft technologies, including XP Office, SQL Server 2000, Analysis Services OLAP Engine and .NET. "Today, more than ever, enterprises need to monitor the effectiveness of their activities," said John Eng, lead product manager of SQL Server Business Intelligence at Microsoft Corporation. " Oros (AEM( extends the power of SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to decision makers throughout the enterprise, so users anywhere can access and analyse data to make smarter, faster decisions."

Oros AEM is a bold step toward what AMR Research described in a February 2001 report on Enterprise Management. "These emerging applications, most importantly, improve corporate reaction times as business conditions change, and facilitate the sharing of market data and business intelligence at several levels within the organisation and across the value chain."
