> Designed for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services, ProClarity product delivers seamless integration providing customers with comprehensive and cost-effective reporting and analysis solution

London, January 27, 2004 — ProClarity Corporation, a leading provider of analytic application technology for the enterprise, today announced ProClarity for Reporting Services, a new product designed to enhance Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services with sophisticated analytical functionality.

ProClarity for Reporting Services provides an easy transition from viewing a report to analysing data with a single mouse click. Business users can gain a better understanding of their reports by using ProClarity to analyse their data without having to request new reports from IT, thereby greatly reducing the time to make faster, smarter decisions.

“For industry partners such as ProClarity, SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services provides a cost-effective, integrated reporting solution that makes it easy to build custom business intelligence applications,” said Steve Beswick, director, partner & specialist sales, Microsoft Limited: “This a natural complement to the customisable analytics platform ProClarity provides. Mutual Microsoft and ProClarity customers will benefit from a seamless and comprehensive reporting and analysis solution that empowers employees at every level to have better access to information, increasing their ability to make more-informed decisions and enhance business value.”

With the integration of SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services and the ProClarity family, Microsoft and ProClarity will deliver business intelligence (BI) capabilities beyond those available from traditional BI vendors and at a value point that cannot be achieved with other vendors’ technology. ProClarity for Reporting Services offers the following benefits to enterprise decision makers by combining the rich relational reporting environment of Reporting Services with the best-in-class analytic capabilities of the ProClarity product family.

> Reduce the Time and Effort to Create OLAP Reports

Report authors can now create reports in Reporting Services without having to write complex MDX queries by hand. OLAP data sets and queries are created using ProClarity’s intuitive user interface. ProClarity lets authors create and publish reports using the Reporting Services XML Report Definition Language (RDL). ProClarity also gives authors the ability to create new OLAP data sets—or edit existing data sets—for current reports.

> Increase Insight and Understanding

Authors can place a link on a Reporting Services report that will take report consumers into ProClarity where they can use ProClarity’s patented Decomposition Tree and other advanced visualisation features to analyse report data and gain a deeper understanding of their business. This saves a considerable amount of time and helps report authors be more efficient, because report consumers can access relevant data on their own.

> Lower Cost of Ownership

IT administrators can now lower the total cost of BI ownership by adopting Microsoft Reporting Services, instead of acquiring a third-party reporting product. A company’s investment in SQL Server 2000 and ProClarity is also protected, because both are built on common technology stacks and are completely integrated.

“ProClarity for Reporting Services integrates seamlessly with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services to provide customers and prospects with a comprehensive and cost-effective customisable reporting and analysis solution to meet their unique needs,” said Clay Young, senior vice president of ProClarity Corporation. “Existing customers can now enhance their ProClarity applications by adding seamless reporting functionality for a complete BI solution at a value point that cannot be achieved elsewhere.”
