Star Analytics Showcases Cloud Business Intelligence Automation at Oracle OpenWorld

New Release of Star Command Center Brings Greater Simplicity and Control to Complex BI Workflows

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) - Oracle OpenWorld -- Star Analytics, Inc., the leader in application process automation and integration software, today announced the latest release of Star Command Center, an enterprise solution that reduces the cost and complexity of managing hybrid business intelligence (BI) environments. View a live demonstration at Oracle OpenWorld, October 2 - 6, 2011 in San Francisco. The Star Analytics booth is located in the Hyperion Pavilion at the Westin St. Francis.

Star Command Center provides a secure environment to centrally manage, control and view automation tasks that run across cloud and on-premise BI environments. As a testament to Star Analytics' success, a prominent international hotel chain recently selected Star Command Center to automate their Hyperion Financial Management applications hosted in Oracle On Demand. A leading global pharmaceutical company has expanded their Star Command Center footprint to support their new Oracle Hyperion 11 environment.

"Oracle OpenWorld reinforces the value we're delivering to joint customers that need to reduce the cost and complexity of managing BI environments," said Quinlan Eddy, founder & CEO, Star Analytics. "Continued strong adoption of Star Command Center underscores the power of Automation Lifecycle Management in dramatically simplifying the management of all the workflows and automations inside the complex ecosystems powered by Hyperion and other applications -- on-premise, hosted or in the cloud."

New in Star Command Center

The new release of Star Command Center addresses the challenges of audit, compliance and control in enterprise-scale BI deployments, while allowing customers to orchestrate automation on smartphones and web-enabled devices.

Explore these benefits by visiting the Star Analytics booth in the Hyperion Pavilion:

  • More control of your BI environment -- The new release of Star Command Center enhances automation history tracing for file resources, processes and environments, providing insights into 'who ran what, where and how.'
  • Greater efficiency and scalability -- Run large volumes of processes without compromising performance by executing automation tasks in parallel and with an improved command line interface to handshake with other scheduling technologies such as BMC Control M, CA AutoSys and UC4.
  • Expanded interoperability -- In addition, this release offers a vastly improved plug-in architecture including the ability to run plug-ins based on cross-platform Python scripts and Java. Steffen Enni, vice president of Automation Development at Star Analytics, added, "This architecture gives Star Analytics access to a global development force of Python and Java developers who can build and license Star Command Center plug-ins across a huge range of business applications. Star Analytics currently provides plug-ins for many of Oracle's Hyperion products including Financial Management, Essbase and Planning and we are quickly expanding to other Oracle applications and BI applications."
