McDonald Bradley Selects AVS’ OpenViz Platform to Create Business Intelligence Solutions
McDonald Bradley, Inc. (MBI), a Washington, D.C.-area consulting firm specializing in custom software applications and IT solutions for commercial and government clients such as AT&T, Lockheed Martin, GTE, EPA, HUD, and Intelligence Community agencies, has selected OpenViz® from Advanced Visual Systems as its newest visualization platform.
McDonald Bradley’s Advanced Technology Division designs and builds 2D and 3D business intelligence tools to help clients quickly and efficiently increase their understanding of the information found in complex and often diverse databases. These PC or Unix-based, Web-enabled applications can integrate and present real-time, dynamic, static and historic data in a highly interactive, intuitive and graphical manner. The visual framework and design of the applications provides users with the ability to conduct sophisticated analysis and data mining to enhance the decision-making process.
“After an extensive market survey, we selected OpenViz for our newest visualization platform, in large part because AVS understands the needs of the business user and the tool kit is focused on helping users easily and quickly make critical business decisions,” said Danny Proko, MBI’s Director of Advanced Technologies. “We also were impressed by the software’s C++ and Java capability,” added Proko.
The company plans several projects using OpenViz, including an application for a client in the healthcare field to track patient status and the impact of the hospital facilities on that status, and an application for an Oil & Gas industry client to show the impact of modifications to the client’s internal network characteristics and to analyze “what-if scenarios” to ensure that the client maintains all critical capabilities after a network upgrade. OpenViz will also be used for a series of applications for the Intelligence Community, in the areas of training, resource allocation and assessment of gaps in intelligence.
According to Steve Sukman, CEO of Advanced Visual Systems, “We are seeing a rapidly growing movement in organizations toward using visualization technology to better understand financial, marketing, customer and trend analysis information. We are very pleased that McDonald Bradley has selected OpenViz as the platform for building custom solutions for their customers. It is a testament to OpenViz’s strong visualization capabilities and its flexibility in integrating into a wide variety of applications and architectures.”
