VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2010) -

Editor's Note: There is one video associated with this press release.

Cloud-based business intelligence solution provider Indicee, announces a partnership with The ABLAZE Group that signals an increased popularity of on-demand business intelligence. Under the partnership, ABLAZE will provide consultation and training services as an Indicee value-added reseller (VAR).

"That George Peck, the ultimate Crystal Reports guru, and his team at The ABLAZE Group have turned to Indicee as a web-based option for their clients clearly tells us that businesses are realizing and demanding the unique benefits that cloud BI offers," states Indicee Co-founder and CEO Mark Cunningham.

"George literally wrote the book on Crystal. His long history and expertise on the subject makes his decision to partner with Indicee quite significant. We look forward to the success that our work together will undoubtedly bring."

The ABLAZE Group provides consultation and education dedicated to business intelligence products. George Peck, Founder of The ABLAZE Group, is widely respected as the ultimate expert on Crystal Reports and has penned two definitive guides on the subject, Crystal Reports: The Complete Reference and Crystal Reports: Professional Results.

Indicee was founded by Mark Cunningham, one of the co-founders of Symmetrics and Crystal Decisions, and Fred Tummonds, former executive of Crystal Decisions/Business Objects.

The Indicee and ABLAZE Group partnership points to:

  • The increasingly rapid adoption of cloud-based business intelligence and business reporting
  • The strength of Indicee's position against traditional BI offerings
  • The ability for the VAR relationship and structure to extend into, and apply to the SaaS model

"With on-demand business intelligence becoming more pervasive, it was only a matter of time until we came on board the technology," says The ABLAZE Group Founder George Peck. "When we were evaluating who to partner with, it was a no-brainer – Mark, Fred, and the original Crystal Decisions team have struck again and we want to be a part of that."

George Peck of the Ablaze Group will be joined by Indicee Co-founder and CEO Mark Cunningham for an introductory webcast. Hear the Indicee story and see a live demonstration. This free ½ hour webcast takes place Thursday, June 3 at 11:00 a.m. Mountain time.
