"XLeratorDB provides an exciting opportunity for businesses to deliver a calculation hub that underpins both analytics and operational applications. We think of it as Calculation-as-a-Service. This overcomes the problem of fragmented business rules across systems." said Nadav Rayman, Director of Sales and Marketing at BizData.

XLeratorDB allows us to transfer this calculation workload from the desktop to SQL Server to provide faster performance and automated processing. It provides an impressive library ranging from statistical inference functions such as t-tests to Financial Options calculations that work out of the box and at the fraction of the cost of developing from scratch or licensing other statistical packages."

|BizData Nominated for Microsoft Partner of the Year 2012 |
BizData has again been recognised as one of Australia’s leading Microsoft Gold Partners in Business Intelligence, nominated for both Business Intelligence Partner of the Year and Data Platform Partner of the Year categories at the annual Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards
|BizData 2011 MAPA Finalist Data Platform of the Year Award |
BizData is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner with specialisations in Data Platform, Business Intelligence and Portals and Collaboration, providing a unique ability to deliver solutions across the entire information lifecycle.
The Microsoft Australia Partner Awards (MAPA) recognises the best in class for all Microsoft Partners each year. Data Platform Partner of the Year finalists must deliver an outstanding customer solution leveraging the leading capabilities of premium editions of Microsoft SQL Server in a mission-critical environment
BizData has been recognised for a solution which has transformed the entire data management process for a large franchisee based organisation that has doubled in size in the last four years.
The solution, which leverages the Enterprise Edition features of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, involved the implementation of a finance and sales data warehouse.The data warehouse loads over 500 source files on a nightly basis and consolidates it for the organisation’s finance reports and budgeting / planning process.
The solution features SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) ‘fuzzy logic’ to match previously incompatible data to enable a single customer view. A master data hub is integrated to the data warehouse leveraging Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Master Data Services (MDS), which allows staff on-going control of master reference data including categorisation and grouping for reporting, analysis and planning.
By creating a single repository of company data, BizData has contributed significantly to empowering the company in areas of timely corporate planning, data management, sales and marketing, franchise collaboration and management of operational costs. The solution utilises Perspective – Data Collector software, a SQL Server and .NET based application which has also simplified manual Budget and Forecast data collection across over 200 different franchisees.
The solution integrates with a SharePoint portal implemented by BizData which provides each Franchisee with targeted content and reports, and allows collaboration of key processes with Head Office.
The MAPA award winners will be publically announced during the Australia Partner Conference Keynote on Tuesday August 23, 2011.
