New enhancements maintain Clarity's position as the only unified
corporate performance management solution
TORONTO, March 18 /CNW/ - Clarity Systems, a leader in corporate
performance management (CPM) solutions, today announced the availability of
the latest release of its award-winning software, Clarity 6.2. Clarity 6.2
extends Clarity Systems' leadership in corporate performance management by
delivering powerful new functionality that helps companies make more informed
"Clarity 6.2 makes it much easier for our customers to manage their
company performance," says Mark Nashman, President and CTO, Clarity Systems.
"This latest release helps customers by improving the modeling tools at their
disposal while also helping them navigate a larger pool of source data, both
of which will improve decision quality. We've made numerous enhancements
across all functional areas of the product so that our latest solution is even
more powerful and easier to use."
Some of the exciting new features in Clarity 6.2 include:
- Interactive What-if Modeling - Clarity 6.2 users can now perform
interactive what-if modeling to examine multiple scenarios and
significantly improve corporate planning results. Users simply define
data targets and any required constraints. Then they watch as the new
Clarity 6.2 algorithm, within the existing business logic, adjusts
the available variables to deliver targets that satisfy all of the
constraints. Scenario modeling is expedited, giving analysts the time
to create truly optimal plans.
- Context Sensitivity - Several new features provide users with a more
- Linked Documents delivers a highly personalized experience as
users navigate through or "drill through" their data by directly
passing context sensitive information from one document to
another. Clarity 6.2 now supports any number of "drill paths" from
a single data point into any number of other data sources
including other OLAP data, source ERP data, and data warehouses.
This means different users can follow their own desired drill path
from any data point.
- Commentary Roll Up dynamically provides a manager with a summary
of every user's textual notes along any number of business
hierarchies including the organization hierarchy, product
hierarchy, and customer hierarchy. This helps managers understand
the thinking that went into developing the consolidated budget,
plan or forecast. Managers can also, at their discretion, view all
the attached notes in full detail.
- Online Cascade enhances the online analytical capabilities of
Clarity 6. Now a single mouse click launches multiple iterations
of the same report letting users view different perspectives of
the same information.
- Advanced Navigation - Clarity 6.2 users can leverage several new
sophisticated navigational tools. Users focus on the level of
information that they need with new row/column expand/collapse
functionality. Right-click actions let users launch tasks that are
context sensitive based on the current cursor position. And tab
management lets users manage all of their open documents as a group,
creating a more efficient end-user experience.
"These powerful enhancements are all contained within Clarity's unified
solution," says Nashman. "Everything is delivered through a single
installation and viewed through a single user interface, unlike the patchwork
of applications delivered by many other CPM vendors. The resulting user
experience is a big reason why we have one of the highest customer
satisfaction rates in the industry."
