KCI Computing Launches 64-bit Version of CONTROL Corporate Performance Management Software
TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 6 / -- KCI Computing, Inc. today announced that its powerful corporate performance management (CPM) solution, CONTROL, is now available as a 64-bit application.
CONTROL provides a one-stop solution offering the real-time business insight needed to plan, assess and drive corporate performance by leveraging relational technology to unite critical financial and operational data. By using the industry's most advanced 64-bit architecture, CONTROL takes a quantum leap forward in the areas of scalability and performance.
The 64-bit version of CONTROL provides users with the power to handle data-intensive applications of even larger and greater complexity with tremendous speed and precision. It also utilizes memory space more efficiently, allowing those accessing the product via a Web server or terminal server-type configuration to support a larger number of concurrent users with a single physical device. This is particularly beneficial for large enterprise scale deployments.
"For organizations to be successful with their performance management initiative, there is a need to proactively connect information from a variety of sources to help link strategy and tactics," said industry expert Craig Schiff, President and CEO of BPM Partners, an advisory services firm with an exclusive focus on performance management solutions. "As more data is integrated, the volume of information and the multi-dimensional nature of effective analysis demands a robust application that can handle complex data manipulations without sacrificing data accuracy."
The 64-bit version of CONTROL enables users to dive deeper into large volumes of data down to the most granular level, providing the visibility and insight needed to better understand the driving factors behind the numbers. The results are improved financial and operational decision-making across all financial management processes including budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis.
Users benefit from increased speed and precision, without sacrificing the usability and functionality that has set CONTROL apart as the corporate performance management solution of choice for companies of all sizes across a variety of industries. The 64-bit version delivers the same end-user experience as its predecessor, and can be used simultaneously with the 32-bit version of CONTROL.
"As a company that has always exploited technology, KCI continues to promote its philosophy of allowing our customers to choose and benefit from the latest computing available," said Max Kay, CEO, KCI Computing. "CONTROL has always stood apart in its ability to solve complicated problems and help users make sense of large amounts of data quickly and with extreme precision. By leveraging 64-bit architecture, our customers now have the capability to take their performance management to a whole new realm with virtually no limitations."
Utilizing 64-bit architecture also enables KCI to create powerful new features and infrastructure enhancements in anticipation of the increasing need for more capable, richer and faster business intelligence and forecasting. KCI plans to roll out significant product upgrades that benefit 64-bit users in 2006.
The 64-bit version of CONTROL requires a 64-bit operating system and associated 64-bit drivers. The software application is compatible with leading 64-bit CPUs provided by companies such as Intel and AMD and found in many of today's leading servers and desktop PCs.
