ESRI ArcGIS Business Analyst Server 9.3 Speeds Business Intelligence

ArcGIS Business Analyst Server provides a host of prepackaged processes, data, and functions that allow users to rapidly generate analyses and workflows with less time spent in development and deployment.

Redlands, California- ESRI's release of ArcGIS Business Analyst Server 9.3 brings an enterprise solution for collaborative business geographics to the marketplace. It enables the creation, sharing, and deployment of workflows and analysis across entire organizations, allowing for more sophisticated business models and intelligence to be developed cooperatively. ArcGIS Business Analyst Server also provides a host of prepackaged processes, data, and functions that allow users to rapidly generate analyses and workflows with less time spent in development and deployment. Because Business Analyst Server is built on core ArcGIS technology, developers can easily build and deploy custom browser-based GIS applications that support specific business functions.

With this recent release, ArcGIS Business Analyst Server has been expanded by adding more reports, data, and flexibility to the application while reducing its resource consumption. Key features of the 9.3 release include the addition of stateless application objects, which support more simultaneous users and decrease CPU and RAM consumption. The release also includes an updated SOAP API as well as a new REST API. New trade area types have been developed for the evaluation and exploration of business operational areas, and new analyses types of the Customer Profiling and Find Similar reports provide additional insight into existing and prospective business locations and customers.

"We are very pleased to offer increased capabilities and flexibility in ArcGIS Business Analyst Server 9.3," says Bob Hazelton, product manager, ESRI. "This product leverages ESRI's extensive investment in developing ArcGIS Server by strengthening the geospatial foundation for business analysis. The SOAP API has been enhanced with the addition of several new methods for performing analyses and generating informative content. The REST API was created to offer easier access to the same methods as the SOAP API. Both of these programming interfaces lessen the overhead on the server and ultimately allow the same hardware to support more simultaneous users."

ArcGIS Business Analyst Server 9.3 enables the expansion of business intelligence workflows and analysis beyond the traditional desktop-based platforms. It provides a collaborative platform for organizations that need to perform advanced analytic functions and to share the knowledge and results across multiple departments.
