Ventana QuickTake™

On June 27th, Celequest announced it has partnered with Bristlecone, Inc., a consulting partner of SAP, to offer LAVA QuickStart, a turnkey package for SAP NetWeaver BI (formerly SAP BW). The joint offering includes Celequest's LAVA operational intelligence appliance, an implementation services package from Bristlecone and maintenance and support for the first year.

Customers have numerous third-party options for business intelligence (BI) tools to complement their SAP NetWeaver BI implementations; what makes this package different is the appliance pricing model, which includes unlimited numbers of data sources, users and dashboards. Ventana Research recommends that organizations wanting to improve their price/performance ratio for deploying SAP data to large numbers of users evaluate the LAVA QuickStart for SAP NetWeaver BI package.
