By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor
xVelocity is Microsoft’s (News - Alert) family of in-memory and memory-optimized data management technologies in SQL Server 2012. The first two members of this family are the two members of the xVelocity in-memory analytics engine and the xVelocity memory-optimized columnstore index feature.
With PowerPivot for Excel 2010 and PowerPivot for SharePoint 2010, the xVelocity in-memory analytics engine is the next generation of the VertiPaq engine that was introduced in SQL Server 2008 R2.
Recently, Strategy Companion Corp announced that its Analyzer Business Intelligence solution now supports SQL Server 2012 Tabular xVelocity in-memory data sources.
While Analyzer SaaS (News - Alert) allows cloud-based information providers host multi-tenant, subscription-based Business Intelligence applications for their users, Analyzer Enterprise is created for internal corporate Business Intelligence projects.
Analyzer SaaS deployments are typically industry-specific and offer advanced Business Intelligence solutions used every day by users. Strategy Companion also offers zero-footprint support for Mobile BI on a wide range of devices, apart from supporting Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox for desktop/laptop users.
“We are pleased to announce that Analyzer now enables business users to directly access and work with SQL Server 2012 Tabular xVelocity in-memory data sources. Analyzer's advanced Business Intelligence capabilities and well-known ease of use, even for non-technical business users, combined with the performance and wide variety of data sources supported by the SQL Server 2012 Tabular model, provides a comprehensive and cost-effective Self-Service BI solution," said Bob Abernethy, SVP & GM at Strategy Companion.
Recently, the company announced that its Analyzer Business Intelligence solution now offers complete zero-footprint support for all four major web browsers: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.
