The Longview 7 Service Oriented Architecture has an array of tools and services that simplify integration and interoperability with your IT infrastructure and applications, including Business Intelligence (BI) and Reporting tools.
CPM applications typically have native capabilities for reporting and analysis specific to CPM such as consolidation, planning, budgeting, forecasting, and profitability. However, quite often, organizations have a need to combine the CPM data with historical information using BI tools. In some cases, a standard BI/Reporting tool is already in place and must be leveraged or there is a requirement for dashboards and visualizations that combine CPM data with data from other sources on a unified set of reports. Many large enterprises have a diverse set of existing BI/Reporting tools and needs that may need to be integrated with the CPM platform.
Longview 7 and MicroStrategy are working together to provide enhanced reporting. Longview 7 has been optimized for use with MicroStrategy 9 and provides a seamless user interface between the applications for a tightly integrated CPM/BI solution.
