Home/Press/Nov 30, 2007 – Business Intelligence for Mid-size Companies with MS SQL Server 2005

San Jose, CA, November 30, 2007 – DataSelf Corporation, a publisher of business intelligence solutions for the mid-market, has released a new version of DataSelf ETL that supports Microsoft SQL Server 2005.

“We’re satisfied now with  Microsoft SQL Server 2005’s track record of stability and  reliability” said DataSelf CEO Joni Girardi. “Sure, bleeding edge technology  is exciting. But decision makers, the people we care about, aren’t so excited  when they bleed.”

DataSelf prides itself on  staying one step back from the edge and delivering proven and stable solutions  to its clients.

With this release, DataSelf  BI users can take advantage of several new features that add significant  business benefits: faster reports, even more reporting flexibility, more  comprehensive security, a broader range of key performance indicators and  tighter integration with Microsoft products.

DataSelf’s “consultant in a box” — the tool’s comprehensive set of must-have business metrics — now comes with  more than 550 reports and key performance indicators, a comprehensive data  warehouse, and about 15 OLAP cubes pre-packaged to several mid-market ERP/CRM  systems.

DataSelf actually improved on  one Microsoft change. With SQL Server 2005’s greater power came more  complexity. According to DataSelf’s benchmarking, some SQL 2005 jobs require more clicks than the previous version did. But DataSelf ETL, running on top,  reduced the number of clicks by about 20% overall.

“We welcome the new  features” said Girardi, “and we’re excited to take advantage of them.”
