Elite Business Intelligence Offers Improved Access to Business Information

May 31, 2005

Thomson Elite has announced significant enhancements to its Business Intelligence solution, including "right time" access to performance metrics.

EliteR Business Intelligence is designed to allow firms to self-generate custom reports on a daily basis, producing more current productivity metrics. Thomson Elite is part of The Thomson Corporation and a worldwide provider of business software to professional service firms.

Elite Business Intelligence provides solutions that enable professional services firms to make leverage actionable data that resides throughout the enterprise from a single integrated business intelligence platform. It enables retrieval, reporting, query and analysis of crucial information, helping firms increase profitability and compete successfully.

As a Platinum OEM Partner, Thomson Elite has worked closely with Business Objects, the leading provider of business intelligence solutions, to develop best practices that enhance Business Intelligence usability and improve documentation. The result is an evolutionary data warehouse design that delivers faster reporting, including point-in-time reporting, and more sophisticated drill-down capabilities designed to get the right information to the right decision makers at the right time. The enhanced data warehouse structure also allows firms to access data from a more expanded information base within the firms' own organization (e.g. firms can now pull data from additional areas such as HR/payroll).

A new console application now also provides a single administration interface intended to simplify management functions and cut down on administrator time. Additionally, the suite now includes daily automatic security updating and complete security integration with Elite WebView, Elite Enterprise and Business Objects reports.
