Hummingbird Launches New BI Platform
- By Scott Bekker
Hummingbird Ltd. announced the availability of version 7 of
BI/Suite, its query and reporting solution. Version 7 delivers new enterprise
functionality to facilitate large-scale business intelligence deployments and
features tighter integration with Hummingbird EIP.
BI/Suite 7 features full integration with Hummingbird’s
Common Authentication Protocol (CAP) Server, a proxy that provides user
authentication against any enterprise security infrastructure, including LDAP,
ADS, NIS, NDS, and NTLM, eliminating the need to replicate and maintain
duplicate user credentials in the application environment.
Version 7 also delivers data to Palm OS-based databases and
reports to Palm OS-based devices. Other new features include an EIP handler
that enables Application Collaboration within Hummingbird EIP. Application
Collaboration allows applications to interact by having Hummingbird EIP control
and link the content between disparate applications.
