More Info



Release Date: Monday, November 01, 2010

Rocket Software (www.rocketsoftware.com) today announced the general availability of U2 DataVu, a technical development tool for users of Rocket's UniVerse and UniData products, that allows graphical queries, visual reports and interactive dashboards to be quickly storyboarded and developed by technical content authors and then easily deployed to non-technical users.

U2 DataVu offers UniVerse and UniData users a comprehensive query, reporting and data visualization platform for desktop or web-based environments. With over 100 built-in analytical functions, U2 DataVu allows users to derive maximum value from their data and rapidly build and distribute comprehensive reporting and data visualization solutions across the enterprise. U2 DataVu allows users to:

  • Develop graphical queries, visual reports and interactive dashboards
  • Create reports and dashboards which aggregate data from multiple disparate data sources
  • Access U2 data through native support of U2 SQL
  • View data through a rich desktop application or through a web interface
  • Support a variety of output formats, including XML, HTML, Microsoft Excel® (CSV) and PDF
  • Run on UNIX,  Linux® and Microsoft® Windows® platforms

Susie Siegesmund, Vice President and General Manager, Rocket U2, says "If you are using UniVerse and UniData and are looking for a turnkey solution that allows you to create and distribute queries, visual reports and interactive dashboards across your enterprise - and if you're wondering how to deliver unprecedented amounts of information quickly, logically and cost effectively - the answer is simple: you can do it with U2 DataVu."

One of the initial users of U2 DataVu is Dacono, which provides a strategic planning, compliance, forecasting and financial reporting system to support retail banking institutions to manage their Basel II regulatory burden and to deliver effective business strategy. According to CEO David Jordan, "The nature of the business we deal with is complex and cost-focused, and for us to be successful we needed a solution that was quick to implement, easy to maintain and easy to use. U2 DataVu met those criteria, enabling us to implement dashboards within weeks of implementing the software. Dacono initially selected Rocket Software's UniVerse Database for its capabilities that enabled us to develop a complex application that would have been difficult to do in other environments. Now Rocket Software's U2 DataVu has allowed us to add to those features as a visual dashboard module that can access the complex data structures we have. U2 DataVu gives our application the finishing touches to make our product a market leader."

About UniData

A MultiValue application platform for developing fast, flexible and secure applications

Organizations rely on Rocket UniData, a best-in-class of the MultiValue application platform, for scalable business apps that can evolve as needs change. As a stable, secure, fast data server engine with high availability and low administrative overhead, Rocket UniData is ideal for rapid development using modern tools. On-premises or in the cloud, UniData serves nearly a million users worldwide.

Performance by design

  • A unique and resilient architecture delivers performance advantages compared to traditional SQL databases
  • variable length records and tables within tables simplifies database design, eliminating the constraints of SQL normalization
  • using direct-read capabilities that result in fewer I/O operations than required by SQL, UniData is faster than many other databases
  • variable length records mean less data is transmitted within the entirety of the system which translates to:
    • more responsive mobile applications
    • more efficient replication (for disaster recovery, high availability and more)
  • Rapid development means rapid returns

    UniData includes multiple, easy-to-use programming languages (including Python) with multiple standard supplied interfaces (Node.js, .NET, Java, ODBC, JDBC, RESTful via JSON) for multi-tier solutions. Accelerate your teams productivity by selecting the best development tools based upon your staffs capabilities.

    Security is paramount

    Rocket embeds the most effective security standards for encryption technology deep within the data server, so your data is secure no matter its location, and whether in-transit or stored on disk.

    • SSL/TLS secures connections to the MultiValue server and encrypts data in transit for protection from snooping or eavesdropping. Third parties can also validate and accredit our cryptographic modules for FIPS 140-2 compliance.
    • Automatic data encryption ensures only trusted users with the encryption key can view data. Stolen data is rendered useless without the encryption key.
    • UniData also offers role-based security for users accessing the application. Required DBA maintenance to implement and maintain these capabilities is simple and efficient.
