McAfee Accelerates Business Intelligence Insights With Star Analytics and QlikViewEnhances Decision Making by Leveraging Integration Between Star Command Center, Star Integration Server and QlikView Business Discovery Platform (November 29, 2011)
SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/11 -- Star Analytics, Inc., the leader in application process automation and integration software, today announced that McAfee, the world's largest dedicated security technology company, has deployed Star Command Center and Star Integration Server to automate and integrate processes and data within its QlikView Business Discovery environment.
"Star Command Center and Star Integration Server are important components that support our QlikView Business Discovery initiative," says Jeff Brobst, vice president of Finance at McAfee. "Both products tightly couple integration and automation into a single cohesive package, ensuring the right data is provided to QlikView at the right time."
The integration was developed in close cooperation with StarPartner QlikTech, a leader in Business Discovery -- user-driven Business Intelligence (BI). The Star Command Center Plug-in Task Pack for QlikView provides self-service automation for end-users and real-time refreshes, ensuring the accuracy and integrity of Oracle Hyperion source data flowing into QlikView.
"It's rewarding to know that our partnership with QlikTech is delivering strong business value for clients like McAfee," said Quinlan Eddy, founder and CEO, Star Analytics. "We see a great opportunity to extend this collaboration to help more joint customers reduce the cost and complexity of automating and integrating their business intelligence applications that exist on-premise and in the Cloud."
Star Integration Server is a data bridge that extracts data, metadata and security from Oracle Essbase, Oracle Hyperion Financial Management and Oracle Hyperion Planning applications in an open and standards-based format that is easily consumable by QlikView. Star Integration Server's patented methods for data extraction deliver high performance in a format that ensures components, such as Hyperion "drill-paths," are accurately rendered in QlikView. Star Integration Server also preserves "Time" and "Accounting" intelligence and other application logic.
"As our clients rapidly expand their QlikView deployments for Business Discovery, there is a growing need for quick and easy access to Oracle Hyperion," said Anthony Deighton, CTO and senior vice president, Products at QlikTech. "QlikView provides business professionals at customers such as McAfee simple, easy-to-use answers to critical business questions. Star Analytics unlocks data trapped in financial systems such as Oracle Hyperion without the need for complex code or time consuming IT projects. The union of QlikView user-driven BI with Star Analytics code-free access to financial systems is game changing."
