anacubis has announced the release of anacubis Desktop 3.0, an upgrade to its visual research and analysis software tool. Designed to give business users easy access to analysis, anacubis Desktop 3.0 transforms information drawn from structured or semi-structured data sources into a dynamic graphical map that highlights the relationships and links in the data. The results of this research can now be queried, categorized, and summarized using a range of new analysis features.
The product now automates and simplifies the process of complex analysis through a wizard-driven interface. anacubis Desktop 3.0 also extends the scope of enterprise information sources that can be analyzed in its visual environment, adding support for Microsoft Access, Oracle, and SQL-based databases. These are intended to complement the existing Microsoft Excel and HTML importers and information available from anacubis-enabled online providers such as Dun & Bradstreet, Hoover's, LexisNexis and Questel Orbit.
The new features in anacubis Desktop 3.0 include: a Database Connectivity feature that is designed to extend the benefits of visual research and analysis to more enterprise information sources by enabling the user to incorporate data from Microsoft Access, Oracle and SQL servers. A Summarize Relationships feature that enables the user to aggregate and generate networks of entity relationships at will; this executive summary-style view of the data provides a ‘big picture' overview, while retaining the detailed research that can be drilled down into as required. A Categorization feature that enables the user to create categories based on the properties of entities. A Find Path feature that gives the user the ability to take any two entities in their document and find the path (all the links and linked entities) between these two entities. An Image Importer feature that enables the user to create entities using their own image and logo catalogs. An Interactive Product Guide that introduces the key features of the anacubis Desktop through a series of short animations and shows how they are used in typical research and analysis applications.
anacubis Desktop 3.0 is available to download for a free 10-day trial and purchase online. A one-off single user license is $2,950. The Intellectual Property Analysis Add-in is available on a subscription basis for US$750 per year, including all product updates.
