Angoss Software Corporation, the data mining solutions developer, has announced the version 1.1 release of KnowledgeExcelerator and KnowledgeAccess, its data mining add-ins for Microsoft Corporation's Excel and Access spreadsheet and database applications. The solutions were designed for Office 97 and Office 2000.
The new versions of these products include several feature and performance enhancements. According to Angoss the most significant enhancement is the completion of the previously announced integration of KnowledgeExcelerator and KnowledgeAccess with the Acxiom Corporation's Data Network, a data service providing automated on line access via the Internet to external marketing information on approximately 95% of all U.S. households.
"One of our strategic goals for the Acxiom Data Network is to deliver Acxiom data to the desktops of business professionals through the applications they are familiar with and use every day to do their jobs," states Mark Theilken, Acxiom's InfoBase Products group leader. "With the integration of the Acxiom Data Network into ANGOSS's data mining add-ins for Microsoft Excel and Access, the vision of Acxiom data accessible on every desktop is becoming a reality."
