LUGANO, Switzerland - Tuesday, January 14th 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) BOARD International, a leading global software provider, is proud to announce the release of BOARD 8.1, the latest version of the market’s only fully integrated Business Intelligence (BI) and Corporate Performance Management (CPM) solution.

“BOARD 8.1 reinforces our entry as a serious player in the segment for large international enterprises”, says Giovanni Grossi, CEO of BOARD International. “Significant investment and enhancements have been made to ensure that we can support large global deployments of BOARD – in particular in the area of scalability, security, localization and system administration. We are also very proud to announce the launch of BOARD Mobile for Apple iOS and Windows 8 Mobile devices – now users on the road can access BOARD’s state-of-the-art Business Intelligence applications on their mobile devices.”

Key enhancements for large BI and CPM deployments

Deployment of BI and CPM applications to large international enterprises demand a solid “back-end”. BOARD 8.1 provides enhancements to the following areas:

• Scalability: With significant improvements to session handling and caching, BOARD 8.1 handles thousands of concurrent users without performance loss.

• Stronger Security: BOARD 8.1 delivers robust security through improved user profile management and the creation of customized security rules and alerts.

• Localization to any language: With BOARD 8.1, any part of BOARD that is visible to the end user, whether it be a button, or the application menu, can be localized to any language.

• Enhanced monitoring for system administrators: With BOARD 8.1, expanded system logging enables system administrators to monitor most types of event and rapidly build dashboards and alerts to pre-empt issues and adhere to corporate compliance rules.

In addition, BOARD 8.1 offers several usability enhancements to its BI and CPM solution that ultimately will increase decision making effectiveness, such as the “Data Spreading Modeller” which improves any type of planning activity by quickly allowing end users to apply and allocate data according to configurable models.

BOARD Mobile – easy deployment to mobile devices

BOARD 8.1 also extends its usage to mobile users. Designed and developed for a high performance, gesture based usage, BOARD Mobile offers users access to their desktop application and web based applications on Windows 8 tablets and Apple iPads. Users can access their data in offline mode, thus making it possible to work without connection to a network. BOARD Mobile uses the same programming-free toolkit as the desktop and browser based applications, making it possible to deploy most types of screens to a mobile device in a matter of minutes.

“Our vision is to help companies of all sizes to improve business performance through better decision making. BOARD 8.1 is yet another important step in our efforts to achieve this vision”, says Giovanni Grossi.
