Applix, Inc., a global provider of business intelligence (BI) and business performance management (BPM) software solutions, announced Applix's flagship planning platform TM1 has been certified on Windows Server 2003 Standard and Enterprise editions. The independent certification tests were conducted by VeriTest, the testing division of Lionbridge.

As part of the requirement for receiving Windows certifications, TM1 satisfied stringent reliability requirements to guarantee the highest performance possible on Windows Server 2003. TM1 is one of the few leading planning and analytics solutions to have completed this certification.

"Most business intelligence and business performance management initiatives are led by financial executives and business managers," said David Menninger, vice president, worldwide marketing, Applix, Inc. "As such, they have an overwhelming preference for working on Microsoft platforms and with Microsoft applications on the front end. Applix has invested significant resources into TM1's interoperability, support and certification for Microsoft's platforms and applications to satisfy the direct needs of our existing and future customer base, and continues its commitment to providing a proven platform for planning and analytics."

This effort follows other recent announcements related to Microsoft platforms and applications. In May, Applix announced a full integration for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services, allowing customers to use MS Reporting Services to author, generate and disseminate large-volume, scheduled and on-demand reports from TM1-based applications. Additionally, Applix has developed TM1 Web, the only read/write tool for publishing Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to the Web. This tool enables customers to share and work with real-time data over the Web - a solution that is particularly useful for companies with geographically dispersed offices.
