Hyperion announced several new features to its business
analysis technology, Hyperion Essbase. The latest version of Essbase features
greater customization of analytic applications, and is the first open, multi-dimensional
calculation engine that supports Java stored procedures.
The addition of Java-based custom defined functions extends
the Essbase calculation engine, and allows users to centralize their unique
business logic and key performance indicators.
In addition to supporting custom defined functions, Essbase
provides tighter integration with relational data sources, and incorporates new
features. Hyperion Integration Server is a suite of graphical tools and
scalable data integration services that integrates data from relational data
sources into Essbase applications. A new language, called Multidimensional
Access Language (MaxL), is a linguistic interface for performing Essbase
administration tasks. MaxL features integration with Perl scripting for easier
automation of tasks.
