anacubis Launches anacubis Viewer

anacubis, a division of the i2 Group (Washington DC) announced immediate availability of its web-enabled visualisation technology for online information portals. anacubis now extends the same visualisation and analysis technology used by intelligence and law enforcement agencies worldwide to online business information databases. The anacubis Viewer solution incorporates Java and XML-based technology to enable commercial information professionals to rapidly extract intelligence from complex data. anacubis Viewer automatically creates a visual representation of complex data in real-time, which can be manipulated and acted upon. It does this by automatically representing entities, such as people and organisations, pictorially as icons and shows the relationships between such entities as link types. As the user explores the online source, data is continually added to the visualisation, providing a big picture overview of a particular organisation, market or area of interest. anacubis will also launch the anacubis View Manager in March of 2003. The View Manager is a desktop application that enables users to store, manage and distribute the anacubis Views they have created within supported online information services.
