Microsoft Corp. and Hyperion announced plans to integrate their respective business intelligence (BI) solutions to enable customers to make the most of their existing IT investments through improved interoperability between the companies' technologies.

Collaboration plans include four initiatives that integrate Microsoft SQL Server 2005 technologies - including SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services, SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services and SQL Server 2005 Integration Services - with Hyperion System 9 BI+, a key part of Hyperion's Business Performance Management (BPM) solution. 

Microsoft and Hyperion are committed to broadening the reach of business intelligence by providing an easy and integrated user experience for accessing and working with business information so decision-makers at all levels in an organization can make more informed decisions and drive better performance. The goal is to reach every individual, add value to every decision, and help organizations align people and initiatives to business strategy. This strategic alliance continues the collaboration between Hyperion and Microsoft to provide increased value to their extensive joint customer base. Users will benefit by combining reports and data from both Hyperion and Microsoft data sources into a unified enterprise view that leverages their preferred delivery and analysis tools.
