Unisys announced Partners in Excellence for Business Intelligence, a multimillion dollar strategic initiative to deliver enterprise business intelligence solutions based on its ES7000 enterprise servers at the TDWI World Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Through the initiative, Unisys will work together with Microsoft, ProClarity, SAP, SAS, Avanade Inc. and CGE&Y to test and deliver integrated BI platforms and applications for large-scale Windows-based computing environments.

As large enterprises have come to understand that one of their most important assets is the data they collect, the need for software and solutions to help use that data to competitive advantage has grown. Companies are realizing that they need to move beyond simply finding and storing data to turning the data into information to be used intelligently across the organization.

Unisys is joining together with industry leaders to help companies build next generation BI solutions using the superior economics of Microsoft- and Intel-based technology. The Partners in Excellence program furnishes the complete infrastructure – technology, applications, services and support – that makes up a comprehensive solution. Customers will be able to benefit from the solution quickly, focusing on the business impact of the solution rather than building the solution itself.

The Partners in Excellence Program for Business Intelligence Solutions is the newest addition to the portfolio of solutions being developed and supported at Unisys Centers of Excellence around the world. Unisys has created two new Centers of Excellence in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Redmond, WA, dedicated specifically to SQL Server based Business Intelligence solutions on the ES7000 database platform.

"In today’s competitive and dynamic business climate, corporate customers are demanding comprehensive solutions that will bolster bottom line returns, with efficiency, ease and speed," said Don Montgomery, director of strategic programs, Unisys. "No other competing server platform can provide the high levels of availability and performance needed to run intensive BI applications with the compelling economics and simplicity of the Windows- and Intel-server environment. With Partners in Excellence we are delivering proven, tailored solutions to customers that can be rapidly deployed with less risk."
