Introducing Savant

Business intelligence you can talk to, results you can talk about.

The Savant iPhone application provides quick, real-time access to your corporate financial data. Savant is a voice-enabled querying tool built to extract financial information from OLAP databases. It is pillared on speed, flexibility and ease of use, using natural language as its primary method for extraction. Users have the ability to see results displayed in multiple views - chat, chart, or report, with various options on each. It gets better. Unlike other voice recognition software, Savant knows that one answer is likely not enough. It remembers what you asked and when you asked it which gives you the ability to follow up on questions and drill down into the details! Ask a question and get your answer immediately. There is no extra software, middleware, added processes or complicated queries. It's that simple.

Talvis Savant iPhone app that can submit a query to Essbase by asking a question or sending a text based question. It's like 'Siri' for Essbase . The query results can be returned as text and simply spoken to you. They will also appear in table and graph formats. Additional data points can then be added to modify the results set.

Savant is voice activated. Simply ask a question, and Savant takes it from there!

You also have the option of typing in your question or selecting a prior question from your favorites. Here's how it works:

Nuance Voice Recognition Your voice query is translated to a textual representation using best in class voice recognition provided by Nuance.

Query Coding Proprietary software is used to translate your question into XMLA, which provides universal data access to any standard multidimensional data.

Hierarchical Tables Multi-dimensional keyword tables are customized to give you access to your information using English sentences.

Results Set Your query results are formatted into an interactive pivot table or graph and can be modified by adding, changing or deleting information, and it's all done with the power of your voice.
