Relational Solutions Announces BlueSky Analytics 6.0 With Automatic PowerPoint Integration

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - September 18, 2008) - Relational Solutions, a software and service company specializing in demand signal repositories, data integration and business analytics is proud to announce BlueSky Analytics 6.0.

BlueSky Analytics was designed to provide ease-of-use and fast access to information for the average business user as well as advanced features required by analysts and power users. Built with tight Microsoft Office integration, it provides an easy to use, Office 2007 look-and-feel yet it's backward compatible to Office 2000. BlueSky Analytics uses the latest Microsoft Smart Client technology which launches a Windows application from a web browser. The Smart Client technology allows for centralized distribution and administration. BlueSky Analytics is fast, powerful and able to handle large data sets with ease. In addition, it includes "Pack-and-Go" technology for use when not connected to a network, so it's great when traveling or giving customer presentations.

In addition to being a robust analytical tool, it makes creating PowerPoint presentations for sales and marketing teams a snap. "Our 'One-Click' PowerPoint creation technology makes preparing for Buyer presentations, sales meetings and executive summaries, fast and easy. Users highlight cells on the data grid and BlueSky dynamically creates the graph. Users simply drag the data grid and graphs they want into our 'PowerPoint Gutter,' then click 'Create PowerPoint' and PowerPoint opens with each grid and chart on its own slide," said Janet Dorenkott, VP of Sales.

Other features include easy creation of custom hierarchies, exception highlighting, powerful formatting and print features, drag, drop, drill, pivot capabilities, and more. It also includes the ability to Export to Excel, PDF, HTML and Text. "Its powerful calculation engine lets analysts create derived measures and functions. The easy to use query wizards let you pull data from multiple data sources to populate a single Workbook and share it with others. Users can export Workbooks and data to a single file and send it to a non-BlueSky Analytic user so they can view, and fully interact with the Workbook through our free Reader," said Rob York, President.

BlueSky Analytics is database agnostic and includes a powerful business layer that shields users from complex data models and queries. It's very secure and deployable from behind your firewall.
