Brio Software, Inc., a provider of next-generation business intelligence tools, today announced Brio Performance Suite 8, the first product to answer the market’s demand for a fully integrated business intelligence and enterprise reporting tool. By combining the knowledge discovery and interactivity of its business intelligence technologies with the authoring and publishing capabilities of its SQR reporting tools, Brio is able to give customers the broadest tool set for the creation, management and distribution of enterprise information.

Brio has been widely recognized by industry analysts as the ease-of-use leader in the business intelligence market. With Brio Performance Suite 8, the company has advanced the product’s intuitive interface while adding a powerful underlying enterprise-ready architecture to tie everything together. The company is now offering a suite that is simple enough to be installed, implemented and maintained by a small department, but also has the high-performing infrastructure that can easily scale to the needs of an organization of any size.

Brio Performance Suite 8 spans the three essential functions of business intelligence software including enterprise reporting, ad hoc reporting and analysis and global information delivery. Brio Performance Suite’s zero-footprint, browser-based query, analysis, reporting, and administration meet the needs of users inside and outside the organization.

The suite’s distributed and replicated J2EE-compliant architecture enables fast data access to heterogeneous platforms increasing performance and scalability. Brio has also established a highly interactive and personalized user interface that is consistent across the entire Brio Performance Suite, including the end user and analysis tools.

The product line installs in as little as one day to provide immediate delivery of reports and analyses. On average, Brio Performance Suite 8 requires three hours or less of training per employee and the fewest number of administrators to run the system – typically two administrators for a 5,000 person implementation.

Equally important for customers is Brio’s collection of open access tools that can quickly leverage existing data sources. These solutions work out of the box in the broadest range of IT environments, including heterogeneous data sources, operating systems, and applications, resulting in fast and easy deployment and greater flexibility to meet a customer’s changing needs.
