Yellowfin is set to redefine what BI users and IT Departments will expect from Business Intelligence vendors

Leading Business Intelligence software provider, Yellowfin, today announced it would be launching its milestone release on May 5th, 2010.

Yellowfin 5.0 is set to redefine what BI users and IT Departments will expect from BI vendors. With faster deployment and faster analytics, Yellowfin 5.0 is set to establish new BI standards, all the extra functionality is integrated and three simple steps are all it takes for users to connect map and visualize their data.

Glen Rabie, CEO of Yellowfin says, “This is a quantum leap in BI performance. With Yellowfin 5.0 there is no need for the complex and expensive processes of developing ETL scripts and data warehouses. It really is a simple process that our beta customers have been delighted by. Yellowfin enables users to see and know their business in new ways and interactively explore data without limits”.

“Yellowfin 5.0 was the result of understanding how our customers wanted to work within the BI environment. The typical scenario was that deployment got bogged down due to query performance and the need to build data marts or data warehouses that would address these performance issues. As a result, business users had to wait for this tedious non-value added step to be completed before they could even write a single report, leading to frustration. So Yellowfin developed an in-memory database to address this need,” says Rabie.

Successful BI projects are measured by two core criteria: the speed of delivery and the speed of analysis. Traditionally there was a tradeoff  between the two. To achieve the analysis speeds required - complex project steps are required. However, Yellowfin 5.0 has two major features that deliver a significant speed enhancement over traditional BI tools. These are:

  1. An embedded in-memory database
  2. A fully integrated user interface for all development steps

“What this means is that with Yellowfin users can rapidly develop and publish reports and dashboards since the number and complexity of the steps required for delivering a reporting project is significantly reduced (minimizing project costs and risks) without the need to compromise on the speed and efficiency of the reporting and analysis. And that thrills the business user,” says Rabie

Fast analysis, better insight and rapid deployment with minimal IT involvement —these are the leading benefits of in-memory analytics. With Yellowfin 5.0, In-memory analytics delivers decision insight with the agility that businesses demand. It’s a win for business users, who gain self-service analysis capabilities, and for IT departments, which can spend far less time on query analysis, cube building, aggregate table design, and other time- consuming performance-tuning tasks.
