Last week, Microsoft announced a new add-on for Microsoft Dynamics SL (formerly known as Solomon):
Microsoft Corp. today unveiled BIO™ for Microsoft Dynamics™ SL, an operational analytics application that gives decision-makers throughout an organization unique and relevant insight into business drivers. Slated for release to manufacturing in May, BIO (Business Intelligence Optimization) for Microsoft Dynamics SL provides personalized, role-based business performance scorecards that empower employees to help increase the value of their customer interactions, lower product and service delivery costs, and create strategic plans for expanding their business. BIO for Microsoft Dynamics SL extends the solution to include a robust strategic, operational and financial analytics solution.
Built on Microsoft® SQL Server™ Analysis Services, it also fully integrates with SQL Server 2000 and 2005.
Microsoft worked closely with channel partner NexVue Analytics Corp. to develop the new business intelligence capabilities for Microsoft Dynamics SL. NexVue, a business intelligence development and consulting organization, is focused specifically on delivering out-of-the-box business analytic solutions specific to the requirements of midsized businesses. NexVue has designed and developed both a business and technical model (BIO) that build on the Microsoft business intelligence development environment for the midmarket that reduces the technology gap and the cost of implementing BI solutions.
