"We are very pleased to release ProfitBase 2007, our configurable data warehousing software, to North America and especially to the Microsoft Dynamics community at Convergence," said Borre Tharaldsen, CEO of ProfitBase AS. "The major focus in business today is to get better information. A single, consolidated view of information enables decision makers to track and optimize their business performance."

ProfitBase 2007 has ready-to-use OLAP business cubes for finance and sales and data source connectors for Microsoft Dynamics GP, NAV and AX, Oracle Financials and many others. As a result, ProfitBase 2007 solutions can be installed and running significantly faster than custom-developed data warehouse solutions.

"Small and medium businesses can't afford the time, money or take on the risk associated with a complex data warehousing project," said Larry LeBlanc, president of ProfitBase NA. "With ProfitBase 2007, there is no programming; it's completely configurable. So we've dramatically reduced the complexity and risk and made it possible for every business to afford to consolidate data into one view of performance."

Based on Microsoft SQL Server 2005, ProfitBase 2007 extracts and consolidates raw data from existing business systems and applies proven business logic to create performance metrics that are presented to information workers with tools like Microsoft Office PerformancePoint, Reporting Services and Business Scorecard Manager.

Because ProfitBase complements Microsoft technology, including SQL Server 2005, Reporting Services, Business Scorecard Manager and SharePoint, Dynamics customers can leverage their investment in Microsoft and the data in their systems.
