Panorama Software, the original developers of the OLAP technology that was sold to Microsoft Corporation and a global provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions, shared its position on the acquisition of ProClarity by Microsoft. "Panorama fully supports Microsoft's decision to acquire ProClarity," said Eynav Azarya, CEO, Panorama Software. We are happy to see Microsoft researching and investing in the BI space. ProClarity provides visualization tools for Microsoft's OLAP technology and we strongly believe this will help Microsoft and its partners to drive better BI solutions. Panorama plans to take full advantage of the Microsoft platform and integrate the new visualization capabilities into our NovaView platform."

As a long-time partner of Microsoft, Panorama remains committed and focused on delivering the very best enterprise BI solutions that leverage the Microsoft platform. Panorama NovaView Server, the company's middle-tier application server that extends and integrates with Microsoft's BI applications and platform, provides a comprehensive single server solution that significantly increases the scalability of SQL Server Analysis services and simplifies the management of both Microsoft and Panorama's applications. Panorama NovaView goes beyond visualization, providing a complete and integrated set of integrated applications that include analytics, reports, scorecards, dashboards, advanced 3-D visualization and business modeling.

As part of an increased focus on the large enterprise market, Panorama recently announced the extension of its leading enterprise BI solution - Panorama NovaView - to the SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW) platform. SAP BW is the core component of SAP Business Intelligence, itself a component of the SAP NetWeaver platform. This extension enables SAP BW customers to leverage their SAP data for decision-making and performance management across the enterprise through a complete suite of analytics, reporting, scorecarding, dashboarding and business modeling applications.

The support for SAP BW is part of an overall strategic mission by Panorama to deliver the market's most complete and integrated set of BI solutions for SAP BW and Microsoft platforms.
