Business Intelligence Software functionality is characterized by dynamic multi-dimensional analysis of consolidated enterprise data supporting end user analytical and navigational activities including: calculations and modeling applied across dimensions, through hierarchies and/or across members trend analysis over sequential time periods slicing subsets for on-screen viewing drill-down to deeper levels of consolidation reach-through to underlying detail data rotation to new dimensional comparisons in the viewing area. Business Intelligence Software can be implemented using browser based configuration, or in a multi-user client/server mode and offers consistently rapid response to queries, regardless of database size and complexity. Business Intelligence Softwre helps the user synthesize enterprise information through comparative, personalized viewing, as well as through analysis of historical and projected data in various “what-if” data model scenarios.
