Business intelligence (BI) vendor Brio Software has announced an enterprise metrics system designed to allow companies to build metrics around business processes to boost overall company performance.

Brio metrics Builder 7.0 combines data from operational and legacy systems with the business decision process to provide users with an interactive, real-time metrics analysis environment, according to a company spokesman.

By spanning multiple business functions, users can quickly identify problems and examine them against business plans, take corrective action and adjust those plans accordingly.

"We're extending business intelligence out to the enterprise," said Nick Ochoa, Brio product marketing manager. "The metrics provide an aligned view of the business from the CEO all the way down to the individual contributor level."

While a single query can provide a snapshot of certain activity, Metrics Builder is designed to allow monitoring of trends to evaluate business strategy.

In addition, with the ability to drill and focus on an assortment of business metrics, users have access to sophisticated business performance methodologies, a capability traditionally reserved for business analysts, Ochoa added.

With personalised Web-enabled dashboards, employees across all levels of the organisation receive data through drillable charts, graphs and reports specific to their individual needs.

The product also features role-based security, including hierarchy, column, and time functions. This, combined with secure HTTP support for deployments beyond the corporate firewall, allows enterprises to open the business performance value chain to suppliers and other partners.
