  • Metrics on product sales

NeoView Supports Operational BI

HP Neoview is designed for a 24x7 environment where decision making is seamlessly integrated into business operations at multiple levels and across numerous users within the organization.

According to IDC, HP is ranked #1 in BI server deployments worldwide.


Supports HP BI Services

HP also unveiled a foundational set of business intelligence services, enhanced by HP’s acquisition last year of Knightsbridge Solutions, a U.S.-based consultancy of 700 professionals exclusively focused on BI solutions.

HP BI approach is to integrate its innovative products and services with robust partner relationships to deliver BI capabilities and functionality to a broader set of users across the enterprise.

HP Neoview provides a cost-effective business intelligence platform, built on industry-standard components, with easy implementation into existing IT environments. There is no need for costly workforce retraining and software relicensing fees. The platform offers robust performance, continuous availability and massive scalability.

HP’s partner network ensures optimized solutions

HP is building on its strong relationships with the major business intelligence software vendors to enhance the capabilities of the HP Neoview platform. Partners already engaged include:


DW and BI Innovation

In January 2007, HP formed a business unit within HP Software to focus exclusively on business intelligence. The HP Business Intelligence Group is part of a larger company effort to aggregate HP’s capabilities across infrastructure, software and services and complements HP Services’ investments in business intelligence with the Knightsbridge acquisition.

HP is not noted as a systems integration provider in BI/DW, while its peer competitors have deliberate services strategies in this area. However, HP does deliver solution strategies that use other vendor products [such as HP's Darwin Reference Architecture].
