The article informs that business intelligence (BI) software developers Cognos Inc. and Hyperion Solutions Corp. are taking steps to make it easier for enterprises to adopt their products as a BI standard. Cognos plans to announce in late June at its Cognos Forum user conference in Orlando, Florida, the Cognos Performance Management System, which combines query and reporting, analysis, metrics management, dashboarding, event management, and planning. It also adds platform services such as portal, security, administration, information and business modeling, and data integration, which leverage existing infrastructure technologies already in place in enterprises. A second release of the product, planned for next summer, will support a data abstraction layer that will show information from wherever enterprise data is located, a feature that Hyperion Chief Technology Officer John Kopcke calls universal data access. Hyperion, of Santa Clara, California, later this summer plans to update the master data management technology it acquired from Razza Solutions Inc. earlier this year with an n-tier architecture, replacing the current client/server architecture.
