SPSS Inc., a provider of predictive analytics, announced the immediate availability of OLAP Hub 4.1, the newest release of the company's Web-based analytical reporting solution. OLAP Hub is the first analytical reporting tool that fully leverages Microsoft's .NET Framework. The product unlocks data that resides in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services, placing relevant, timely information in the hands of decision-makers in a secure, personalized manner.

VeriTest certified OLAP Hub's compliance with the Application Specification for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 in the Query, Reporting and Analysis Tools category, ensuring that the product provides customers with the highest level of support for their Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services investment.

Using OLAP Hub, customers can reliably perform sophisticated analyses of large volumes of data. This new release represents a major advancement in the technology SPSS initially acquired from netExs, the developer of OLAP Hub, in 2002. Improvements to OLAP Hub, including enhanced scalability and easier administration of security rules for large groups, were completed to make the enterprise-class solution easier to deploy. Business analysts and managers can have instant access to detailed analyses from any location at any time.

OLAP Hub 4.1 is optimized for Microsoft's .NET initiative, the company's software technologies for connecting information, people, systems, and devices through Web services. The result is a scalable, reliable platform that efficiently leverages an enterprise's existing infrastructure investments to securely share critical information across a broad range of decision-makers.

With OLAP Hub 4.1, companies can now make the most of the features and performance improvements inherent in .NET, including improved security and easier integration with XML Web services including XML for Analysis. The .NET Framework also allows individual users to personalize and customize features- such as default reports, and display and presentation options-to best meet their decision-making needs.

OLAP Hub features an enhanced security layer that simplifies the administration of permissions, balancing the broad data-access needs of the entire enterprise with the need to keep proprietary information safe. The new system associates permission profiles with users or groups to simplify the process of assigning and specifying application-feature access.
