Information Advantage will claim this week to be the first company to market with a personalised Internet portal site which hooks up to business partners' enterprise applications.
"MyEureka! is just like other Internet portal sites like MyYahoo except that it hooks into your business intelligence applications," claimed Charles Tipping, European marketing director at Information Advantage.
The MyEureka! ROLAP engine, which goes on general release this week, is the product of the combined technologies of Information Advantage and IQ, a query analysis company Information Advantage bought last year.
It will come in several packages aimed at different markets: MyEureka!
for data warehousing; for enterprise reporting; for information portals; for enterprise resource planning; and for customer relationship management.
As with all personalised portal sites, the MyEureka! desktop will allow a user to log on to all the usual news sites and subscription services, as well receiving the usual tailored pushed information. But the desktop will also link to a supplier or customer's data warehouse or ERP system, assuming access is granted. The vendor claims that there are no issues with security.
PeopleSoft has announced that it will imbed part of MyEureka! in its Enterprise Performance Management suite, which includes data warehousing multidimensional analysis, strategic cost management, key performance measures and industry specific analytics.
Information Advantage beat rival MicroStrategy to the PeopleSoft partnership.
Tipping claimed that this was thanks to the product's ability to scale to thousands of users.
Information Advantage hopes to announce more OEM deals soon.
