InforSense KDE 3.0 Released: Enabling Decision-Making Enterprise-Wide.
--Latest InforSense KDE version delivers integrative data analysis, visualization, and software composition to all decision-makers
--Increased productivity gained by quicker and more precise workflow deployment
InforSense Ltd, the leader in integrative analytics platforms, today unveiled the new version of its flagship informatics platform, InforSense(R) KDE 3.0, for enterprise-wide decision-support. This latest version of InforSense KDE enables organizations to integrate and deliver tailored informatics environments - data resources, analytic software tools and applications - to specific decision-makers across the organization within a unified informatics framework. Scientists and business analysts will then use these resources in a highly dynamic and iterative way to answer business-critical problems more quickly and efficiently.
"We are excited to see InforSense KDE 3.0 which represents a significant milestone for both InforSense, and the evolution of workflow tools," commented Stephen Calvert, VP Cheminformatics at GlaxoSmithKline. "Its robust engineering both supports our large-scale deployment plans enterprise-wide and enhanced ease of use for developers and scientists will make a difference to our ability to deliver new informatics tools as our business evolves."
The new release of InforSense KDE provides enhancements for all types of users across the enterprise. Scientists and business analysts have expanded support for personalized data manipulation and reporting. Informaticians and analytical workflow builders can more easily define and deploy tailored interactive applications to address specific business and user needs. Administrators can better support diverse user populations and applications across large and distributed enterprises.
"InforSense KDE is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for workflow-based intelligence delivery across enterprises in many industries," said Prof. Yike Guo, CEO and Founder, InforSense. "The new 3.0 version enables organizations to achieve a truly horizontal integrative environment where every decision-maker can more easily access tailored information as they need it. The potential impact on enterprise productivity is immense."
