Codeless BI from Altosoft
Recently I received a briefing from Altosoft to take a look at their 4th generation product – Altosoft’s Insight Release 4. Altosoft Insight is a single unified business intelligence environment that contains the entire stack from ETL to data visualization. This integrated environment allows for Altosoft users to have a completely (if desired) code/scripting-free implementation. The integrated environment also allows for the automatic management of metadata and data mart storage optimization.
This “removal” of coding and scripting from an implementation removes many of the barriers, that business users and less robust IT departments may have, in implementing a BI environment. The development interface is clean. The point-and-click choices make the creation and implementation of a BI analytic dashboard less costly than it might be with a different environment. This brings down time to implementation and ongoing maintenance issues. With this approach, Altosoft promises to increase speed to implementation and reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).
