Star Analytics Introduces New Release of Star Integration Server to Speed Access to Oracle Data for Business DecisionsNew Release of Star Integration Server Dramatically Improves the Performance Extracting Oracle Essbase Data (January 11, 2012)
SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/12 -- Star Analytics, Inc., the leader in application process automation and integration software, today announced the latest release of Star Integration Server, a solution that streamlines corporate reporting and decision-making by making it easy to extract and combine data from Oracle systems with other business intelligence (BI) applications and data warehouses. The new version of Star Integration Server provides dramatic performance improvements for extracting data from Oracle Essbase cubes, reducing extractions from hours and giving decision makers faster access to time-sensitive data for analysis and reporting.
Star Integration Server enhances Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) environments by serving as a data bridge that extracts data, metadata and security rules from Oracle Essbase, Oracle Hyperion Financial Management and Oracle Hyperion Planning applications in an open and standards-based format. 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 the target reporting application. Star Integration Server also preserves "Time" and "Accounting" intelligence and other application logic. Star Integration Server is deployed in production with large enterprise customers in industries such as financial services, pharmaceuticals and technology.
"As an extension of Oracle Exalytics with an embedded in-memory version of Essbase OLAP server, Star Integration Server offers customers a valuable component to tap into this data resource," said Quinlan Eddy, founder & CEO, Star Analytics. "Exalytics users will benefit greatly from the Star Integration Server's non-scripted, high performance module to easily extract data from underlying Essbase BSO and ASO cubes in Oracle Exalytics."
"Star Analytics has dramatically reduced extraction time by introducing a patent-pending technology known as 'Sparse Discovery' that focuses only on areas where data exists and combines that with a multi-threaded extraction engine that spreads the extraction across up to 128 parallel tasks," says Steffen Frederiksen, CTO at Star Analytics. "Star Integration Server also includes a new client-side extraction capability that enhances the ability to share data with distributed Business Intelligence (BI) reporting tools from various vendors that are on-premise and in the cloud. Together, these capabilities offer non-technical users a fast and easy way to gain access to this valuable source of data."
Oracle ACE Gary Crisci added, "This technology sparks my interest because I have tried to advise Oracle Technical Network (OTN) readers on a solution to achieve a high performance extraction from Essbase Aggregate Storage Option (ASO) databases. Star Analytics has definitely demonstrated a powerful way to resolve this integration need which in turn can assist Oracle Essbase and Hyperion Planning customers to achieve tighter integration between their applications."
