    Platinum InfoBeacon is a decision-support product that provides advanced
     OLAP capabilities for data warehouse environments. The product creates
     a virtual multidimensional view on top of the relational database. It
     gives end users analysis facilities such as drill-down, pivoting, ranking,
     ratios, complex exception, and date handling, without requiring the organization
     to redundantly store and manage data in a proprietary multidimensional
     database. The application server can take advantage of hardware and operating
     system parallelism (symmetric multiprocessing and multithreading). A multi-server
     navigator feature supports distributed heterogeneous data warehouse environments
     by parceling a single logical request into parallel queries to disparate
     database servers.= 1996
