Applix, Inc., a global provider of business intelligence (BI) and business performance management (BPM) software solutions, announced full integration of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services with Applix's TM1 analytics platform. The TM1 business intelligence analytical engine powers a suite of strategic planning, analysis, reporting and performance management solutions used by 1,700 companies worldwide.

Applix TM1 users will be able to use Microsoft Reporting Services to author, generate and disseminate large-volume, scheduled and on-demand reports from TM1-based applications. Additionally, within TM1 Web, users can now view both interactive Web-based Excel workbooks along with Microsoft Reporting Services reports. Enabled by the recent enhancements of TM1's OLE DB for OLAP support, TM1's integration with Microsoft Reporting Services is strategic because it increases TM1's interoperability within organizations standardized on Microsoft platforms.

Microsoft Reporting Services is a comprehensive, server-based solution that enables the creation, management, and delivery of both traditional, paper-oriented reports and interactive, Web-based reports. An integrated part of the Microsoft business intelligence framework, Microsoft Reporting Services combines the data management capabilities of SQL Server and Microsoft Windows Server with familiar and powerful Microsoft Office System applications to deliver real-time information to support daily operations and drive decisions.

TM1 is a proven, multidimensional analytics platform for powering strategic analysis of financial, transactional, operational and other business data. Customers rely on TM1 for its tight integration with Excel, easily configured applications, real-time, what-if analytics and low total cost of ownership.
