Press Release

Greenville, SC, USA and Copenhagen, Denmark – June 2, 2014 - Varigence, the creator of the rapidly growing Biml ecosystem, and Rehfeld, the leading provider of Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing professional services in Scandinavia, are pleased to announce a long-term strategic partnership to bring premier tools for Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse development to the Global market. Under the agreement Varigence’s Mist Integrated Development Environment (IDE) will be used to extend the power and capabilities of Rehfeld’s Self-Service Data Warehousing Platform, Effektor.

“Integrating Mist with Effektor is another great addition to the rapidly growing Biml/Mist ecosystem. By combining the power of Mist with Effektor’s data warehousing capabilities Rehfeld can now offer one of the most advanced BI solutions ever created,” said Scott Currie, Varigence CEO.

Mist is an integrated development environment (IDE) for authoring Business Intelligence Markup Language (Biml) code and data assets. Mist leverages visual design capabilities and debugging features to provide a unified experience for managing entire business intelligence solutions, including relational modeling, data transformation packages, and OLAP cubes. Mist also incorporates modern programming IDE features, including text editors with syntax highlighting, Intelliprompt and quick-info displays, source control integration, and multi-monitor support. Combined with the capabilities of Biml to automatically generate huge amounts of data assets from metadata, reuse code, enforce patterns and best practices, Mist changes the economics of building business intelligence and data warehouse solutions.

Effektor is a meta-data driven platform for DW/BI-solutions supporting all relevant needs in BI from importing source system data over data warehousing and Master Data Management to reporting both on relationel data and OLAP cubes. The platform is built around the concepts of ease of use and self service: working with your data warehouse changes to structure and/or data should not require deep technical expertise and as many tasks as possible should be done by data stewards and end users, not IT pros. Effektor also offers self service functionality on row based security settings and Master data management.

“Since its initial release our customers have been implementing cutting edge BI solutions using Effektor in a fraction of the time and cost of hand build solutions but with a high quality data warehouse architecture. Now with the integration of Mist, our Effektor customers can gain even more insight into their data enabling them to make more profitable data driven decisions for their company,” said Ditlev Moltke, COO of Rehfeld Partners.

Rehfeld has successfully completed the TAP-program for the integration of Mist with Effektor. Version 6.2 of Effektor will ship on November 1, 2014 and include Mist integration and extended data warehousing features.
