Yellowfin Announces Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Global Business Intelligence (BI) software vendor Yellowfin, an official

Microso ft ISV partner, today announced its formal support for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 . Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, October 12, 2012 -- The announcement means that Yellowfin is one of the first Australian ISVs to offer support for all editions of SQL Server 2012. SQL Server is a relational database developed by Microsoft. “Yellowfin is always looking for ways to make reporting and analytics as accessibl e as possible to the widest audience possible,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie. “Mi crosoft is a leader in relational databases, so ensuring that our customers were able to utilize the latest version of its pervasive relational database technol ogy, SQL Server 2012, was critical." “This partnership will enable us to cater for our customer’s future reporting and an alytics needs, and help us to continue making BI faster and easier.” Microsoft ISV Alliance Manager Australia, David Sajfar, said that Microsoft was always looking to partner with leading solution providers, and that Yellowfin’s su pport for SQL 2012 furthered that ambition. “Modern BI solutions need to be able to deliver insights on increasing data volume s and types, while embracing the consumerization of reporting and analytics,” said Sajfar. “Yellowfin’s unique Collaborative BI components and ease-of-use address the demands of an increasingly diverse BI user base, and the new ways in which thos e users want to discover and collaborate around BI content on a daily basis." “Microsoft’s SQL Server 2012 ensures that those users can access all of their critic al data at the speed of thought,” said Sajfar. “Together, Yellowfin and Microsoft S QL Server 2012 offer a complete enterprise reporting and analytics package that addresses the demands of today’s and tomorrow’s BI marketplace.” Yellowfin connects to SQL 2012 via a JDBC driver. SQL Server 2012, codenamed ‘Denali’, was released in March 2012, and is the latest v ersion of SQL Server. SQL Server 2012, like Yellowfin, also enables Big Data exploration with native s upport for Hadoop – a free open-source Java-based framework from the Apache Softwa re Foundation that supports the distribution and running of applications on clus ters of servers with thousands of nodes and petabytes of data. SQL Server 2012 incorporates a number of enhancements specifically designed to i mprove BI performance, including complete fault tolerance and disaster recovery with its ‘AlwaysOn’ feature, as well as significant performance improvements for ana lytics and data warehousing (of 10x – 100x) with its new ‘xVelocity’ in-memory technol ogies, which allows users to explore unprecedented amounts of data in real-time.
