ProClarity Teams with Unisys to Deliver Scalable Business Intelligence Solutions to the Market
Boise, IDAHO, August 20, 2002 - ProClarity Corporation, an award-winning provider of innovative analytic solutions for the enterprise, and Unisys (NYSE: UIS) today announced a strategic initiative to deliver enterprise Business Intelligence (BI) solutions. ProClarity announced its support for the Unisys "Partners in Excellence" Program, where leading software vendors such as Microsoft, SAP, SAS, and system integrators such as Avanade Inc. and CGE&Y, are working together to deliver integrated, scalable BI applications.
The Partners in Excellence program furnishes the complete infrastructure -- technology, applications, services and support - that makes up a comprehensive solution. Customers will be able to benefit from the solution quickly, focusing on the business impact of the solution rather than building the solution itself. Utilizing the ES7000, the industry's only 32-processor Windows and Intel architecture, Unisys and ProClarity are delivering BI solutions that reside on one system and can scale up to meet the needs of the enterprise.
"In today's competitive and dynamic business climate, corporate customers are demanding comprehensive solutions that will bolster bottom line returns, with efficiency, ease and speed," said Don Montgomery, director of strategic programs, Unisys. "No other competing server platform can provide the high levels of availability and performance needed to run intensive BI applications with the compelling economics and simplicity of the Windows- and Intel-server environment. With the ProClarity® Analytics Platform and Partners in Excellence we are delivering proven, tailored solutions to customers that can be rapidly deployed with less risk."
The combined strengths of the Unisys ES7000 and ProClarity® Analytics Platform software are being applied at Clalit Health Service in Israel.
"We are currently supporting 3.5 terabytes of data in our data warehouse and expect to realize tremendous growth within the next 24 months - to 8.5 terabytes of data," said Gadi Gilon, chief information officer of Clalit Health Service. "In order to support this type of growth and the large number of users of analytic applications within our organization, we have deployed a very cost-effective and powerful solution with the ProClarity Analytics Server and the Unisys ES7000. The solution supports all of the information needs of managers in 1,400 community clinics and 14 hospitals, and every Clalit manager uses this system on a daily basis. We have demonstrated that the ProClarity and Unisys solution provides cost savings through a quicker implementation, and considerably reduced training, development, operational and maintenance demands."
