Quartet FS, a specialist provider of Business Intelligence and analytics technology, today announces the availability of ActivePivot 4.0. ActivePivot is a real-time, in-memory and object orientated OLAP aggregation engine and this latest version includes major performance enhancements, new functionality and stronger integration with Microsoft. Designed for knowledge workers, ActivePivot 4.0 enhances productivity by allowing users to make better decisions and take actions based on timely insight and data.
The enhancements in version 4.0 have seen ActivePivotâs internal data structures rewritten, underpinned by multi-core processor technology, for even better performance and reduced memory footprint. The transaction pipeline in ActivePivot 4.0 has also been rewritten to greatly improve throughput of the number of fact insertions and updates per second. Unlike relational database solutions, ActivePivot 4.0 responds to queries in a split second when subscribing to real-time market data, grid computing updates or electronic transactions. As a result, the user experience is greatly enhanced and the quality of data available is improved.
In terms of new functionality, ActivePivot 4.0 is better integrated with Microsoft with support for Excel 2010 and access to the ActivePivot real-time streaming API available from the .NET framework through a collection of extendible web services. As a result, ActivePivot can now be integrated into organizationsâ .NET user facing applications creating richer, more customized interfaces.
