AppsCo Software and Brio Technology are teaming up to provide an integrated, seamless, end-to-end platform for the development of packaged, easily customizable analytical applications for SQL Server. Brio will integrate AppsMart, AppsCo’s software development environment for SQL Server, with Brio.Enterprise 6.0, which delivers personalized information access, analysis, and reporting capabilities. The joint solution will let businesses quickly transform data from operational systems into highly targeted out-of-the-box analytic applications that provide business insights and reduce development and deployment time and costs. "AppsCo’s AppsMart is a powerful, template-driven development environment for Microsoft SQL Server," says Jannell Wei, Brio Technology channel and partner marketing director. "The combination of AppsMart and Brio.Enterprise enables developers to quickly build custom, Web-enabled analytical applications that deliver prepackaged business content to decision makers." AppsMart and Brio.Enterprise 6.0 are integrated through SQL Server 7.0 meta data services that provide life-cycle management capabilities to store and share software components and their descriptive information. AppsMart’s integration with Microsoft Repository lets Brio automate the report generation and analysis needed to deliver customizable analytic applications.
