Composite Software Brings EII To SAP, Siebel

A new product eases access to SAP and Siebel applications and is designed to accelerate dashboard, ad hoc reporting, service-oriented architecture and master data projects.
Composite Software, a maker of enterprise information integration (EII) products, debuted tools designed to let users query data from within SAP and Siebel sources using any reporting tool, including Microsoft Excel.

The new release, Composite Application Views, eases access to complex packaged applications. It's designed to accelerate dashboard, ad hoc reporting, service-oriented architecture and master data projects. The packages work in tandem with Composite's Information Server product.

EII diverges from most traditional ETL-oriented data warehousing in that it accesses, rather than moves, the information that will be examined using analytics tools.

Composite Application Views comprises hundreds of pre-built views of information on customers, products, orders, employees and other business data. The information appears in the form of traditional relational tables that can be queried or combined with other data sources.

Views for SAP and Siebel are sold as two separate packages. Typical deployments start at a base cost of $100,000 for Composite Information Server, plus $25,000 for each Composite Application View package, a company representative said.

Composite plans a similar package for PeopleSoft data in the year's fourth quarter.
