Linked in: Transpara’s operational intelligence software demos in 16 Microsoft Technology Centers

Chuck McCann, a director for Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) alliances, says enterprise mobility is largely an untapped opportunity. But now, via a new agreement with Transpara Corp., the MTCs can use Transpara's Visual KPI technology to demonstrate the power of putting business-critical information—from supply chain to purchasing to engineering metrics—on familiar mobile devices that decision makers use every day.<br/>

Transpara Corp ., a provider of operational intelligence software, reports its Visual KPI will be the foundation for the principal business intelligence mobility demo in the Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) “Envisioning Center” demo.

Visual KPI aggregates operations, financial, and infrastructure information from multiple data sources and delivers role-based, actionable key performance indicators (KPI) to users via the desktop, laptop, or more than 400 mobile devices. The Web-based software enables users to easily create and customize composite KPIs and scorecards without any additional programming, using information from any combination of existing data sources, including the OSIsoft PI System, Excel, Rockwell RSSQL, Invensys InSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, SmartSignal, OLE DB and Web Services.

“Enterprise mobility is largely an untapped opportunity,” says Chuck McCann, MTC Alliances program director. “With Transpara’s Visual KPI, the Microsoft Technology Centers can demonstrate the power of putting business-critical information—from supply chain to purchasing to engineering metrics—on the familiar mobile devices that decision makers use every day.”

Transpara, now a member of the Microsoft Technology Center Alliance Program, is an integral part of the “Strategy Briefings” demo delivered at the MTCs to their enterprise customers. The MTC Alliance Program is made up of industry leaders in hardware, software, and services who work with Microsoft to create and drive joint initiatives and offerings.

“The only way to make data truly actionable is to unlock it from back-end systems and make it accessible to the right people, at the right time,” says Transpara CEO Michael Saucier. ”Transpara’s participation in the MTC Alliance Program is helping customers see how they can easily leverage their current IT investments, existing Microsoft infrastructure, and employees’ increasing reliance on mobile devices to deliver immediate operations and business performance improvement
