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."
