EXASOL AG, developer of the world’s fastest in-memory analytic database, today announced that it has entered into a technology partnership agreement with Switzerland-based company BOARD International.

BOARD International is the leading global provider of software for unified Business Intelligence, Analytics and Performance Management for planning, reporting and forecasting. BOARD is completely programming-free and has been successfully implemented by companies of any size and industry.

Alongside the company’s own multi-dimensional database for planning and reporting, BOARD’s dual engine puts great emphasis on offering fast relational access to data so users can run reports on large data volumes as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Now, with an interface to EXASOL, the combination of BOARD’s toolset and EXASOL’s fast analytic database is an ideal solution for customers who are faced with growing data volumes and who need to meet the ever-increasing demand from their users for self-service BI; moreover, the BOARD interface also supports write-back to EXASOL database. Using the new interface, users can integrate EXASOL into BOARD’s platform with just a few clicks. As a result, analyses that are undertaken in a BOARD environment now run considerably faster than before. To complement the new technology partnership, both companies will also undertake joint sales activities.
