www.lucidera.com "LucidEra is generating excitement in the industry by reinventing how businesses analyze their data. No longer does knowing what's going on in your business require building old-fashioned analytics solutions or data warehouses, both of which are complex to build, hard to manage, difficult to modify, incomplete and expensive."
Think of it as a hosted cross-enterprise data integration solution, similar to Infomatica's plans, coupled to self-service, self-design dashboards, similar to those offered by CXOSystems or Actuate.
"We are delivering the world's first true Business Intelligence On Demand solution, built on an innovative, state-of-the-art analytics platform designed from the ground up to deliver all the advantages of On Demand solutions: simplicity, rapid configuration, ease-of-use, low cost, and reliability."
LucidEra is funded by Benchmark Capital and Matrix Partners. Its seasoned leadership team includes veterans from Salesforce.com, Siebel, Oracle, Informix, Informatica, and BEA Systems.
