solver150.pngWe are pleased to announce that the business intelligence (BI) and analytics product BI360 by Solver is now part of TEC’s certified BI applications family of products, and is available for evaluation online in the Business Intelligence and Data Management Evaluation Center.

In a matter of just a couple of weeks, I’ll be providing a full certification report, where I will review the main features of BI360, including its strengths, weaknesses, and an analysis of each module within TEC’s BI software research model. The report will be available for download soon on the TEC Certification Reports page.

Meanwhile, here is a brief overview of some of the key functionality features, such as reporting and analysis, analytics, data warehousing, workflow, data integration, support, and product technology, which are common to most BI solutions on the market.

Some of BI360’s outstanding features are contained in its ability to provide business planning as well as sophisticated and automated integration capabilities for the Microsoft Dynamics family and other enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. The figure below shows the outstanding rating of BI360’s features when compared with the average product in the BI industry as determined by TEC.


To achieve TEC certification, Solver completed TEC’s detailed questionnaire (download sample BI RFI templates) and delivered the formal product demonstration I’d requested. This demo let me do a trial of some features that I was particularly interested in taking a closer look at, including more than 100 features and functionality sets.

I encourage you to stay tuned for the full certification report. In the meantime, you can interactively review BI360 via TEC Advisor.
