Hyperion Launches Open Calculation Engine

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.
