The new solutions take full advantage of modern, proven IT architectures and help companies develop powerful, agile and relevant business analysis and reporting systems. The results are user-centric performance management solutions that help business decision makers ? from the executive suite to the business manager and the individual sales representative ? make better, smarter decisions every day.
