HP has unveiled its next generation Neoview data warehouse platform. The move forms part of HP’s efforts to offer customers solutions and services that drive business optimisation. HP has also launched a range of new business intelligence (BI) services designed to give businesses better access to data. HP claims that its latest offering allows customers to make informed business decisions, while simultaneously reducing cost and risk and accelerating sales growth. “HP’s approach to business intelligence integrates its innovative products and services with robust partner relationships to bring BI capabilities and functionality to a broader set of users across the enterprise,” said Ben Barnes, VP and general manager, BI software group at HP. “The Neoview platform is a prime example of how HP provides customers with a more reliable, scalable and accessible choice for capitalising on information.” The new platform and services, which form a core part of HP’s business information optimisation portfolio, were introduced at the vendor’s Technology@Work customer event in Berlin, Germany. The HP Neoview data warehouse platform - an integrated hardware, software and services platform - acts as a business outcomes engine, according to HP. It provides customers with a comprehensive view of essential business information, such as metrics on product sales, customer trends, or production and operational effectiveness. HP claims that unlike many legacy enterprise data warehouses, HP Neoview is designed for a 24x7 environment where decision making is seamlessly integrated into business operations at multiple levels and across numerous users within the organisation. HP has also launched a set of BI services designed to help business improve decision making, regulatory compliance and competitive advantage. This service offering was enhanced by HP’s acquisition of 700-strong US-based BI consultancy Knightsbridge Solutions. HP is adamant that both Neoview and its BI services sit comfortably alongside the offerings of major BI software vendors. Strong partnerships are already in place with a number of specialist BI vendors including Business Objects, Cognos and SAS. HP claims that these relationships facilitate the delivery of joint solutions with specialised expertise in BI and tight integration with HP technology.
