AGIS, IT provider to AG Industries, a group of companies that fabricate value-added glass and aluminium products, components and finished products for wholesale distribution, has contracted Harvey Jones to replace its home-grown, proprietary business intelligence (BI) tool with a Microsoft-based, comprehensive BI system.

The new system will use SQL Server 2005 and ProClarity with an upgrade path to PerformancePoint Server 2007 early next year,” says Keith Jones, MD of Harvey Jones.
AGIS has undergone Harvey Jones’ BI Best Practice training in order to align all AG Industries business units before development of the new BI solution commences.
Microsoft acquired ProClarity in June 2006 and has subsequently integrated the product’s advanced visualisation and analysis technologies into its Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 alongside Business Scorecard Manager 2005.
