ShowCase Corporation (Rochester, Minn.) announced the release of STRATEGY 3.5 this week, a data warehousing solution designed to provide high-level business intelligence functions while allowing companies to preserve their investments in their existing software and hardware.

In addition to increased performance and scalability, the new release features Essbase/400, a multidimensional database solution capable of handling many simultaneous data analysis transactions conducted by large numbers of users. Other new features include expanded application breadth, providing support for dynamically calculated dimensions requiring more detailed analysis, as well as more sophisticated analytics with built-in forecasting and trending functions.

“STRATEGY 3.5 gives end users the power to access and explore detailed information their way, within their specific areas of the business, without having to rely on IT support,” said Wayne Roen, director of product management at ShowCase. “In addition, IT groups benefit from being able to empower their end-users by delivering applications and detailed information faster while leveraging the open and scalable AS/400 platform.”

STRATEGY 3.5 is available immediately and is priced from $25,000.
