Rocket Software Increases Value of MultiValue-Based Applications with New Business Intelligence Tools
Rocket Software announced the general availability of Rocket® Discover 1.6, the self-service Business Intelligence (BI) solution custom-built to provide the deep insights MultiValue (MV) customers want without having to rewrite their applications. With its native interface to Rocket D3, UniVerse and UniData databases, business users can easily connect to MV data sources through secure Web services, and use Discover's intuitive interface for data visualization and discovery, and collaboratively share dashboards. For the first time, MV users can easily create the dashboards and visualizations to help drive their business forward without having to take data out of MV and spend hours massaging it to get key insights. The addition of new BI capabilities reinforces Rocket's commitment to its customers to maximize investment in the MV platform.
"Rocket Discover's out-of-the-box features are impressive and quite easy to use," said Bruce Philp, Senior Services Consultant, Meier Business Systems (MBS). "Everything has been smoothly integrated into the U2 and D3 databases, including the speed at which Discover imports data. Even the Metadata Manager, which lets you manage and control file dictionaries, is easy to install, setup and use. MultiValue end users are going to be delighted by how simple it is to create dashboards that reflect previously untapped business critical MV data with Rocket Discover."
As a self-service BI solution, Discover enables executives and business users to experience a hands-on approach to BI exploration and visualization. Discover's intuitive drag-and-drop interface simplifies and speeds data analysis while reducing reliance on IT personnel.
"Rocket Discover is the future for MultiValue customers because it seamlessly combines collaboration and business intelligence," according to Julianna Cammarano, Director of BI Product Marketing at Rocket Software. "The MV Metadata Manager for Discover dramatically simplifies how MV data is transformed into business consumable information. The resulting visual images, diagrams, and graphs empower business users to drill into their data and explore the trends that help them make more informed business decisions. Because Discover uniquely allows business users to combine their MV data with all of their enterprise data, they get a 360-degree view of the business so that every decision is the right one."
