Windows & .NET Magazine Network, a Penton Media property,
announced the winners of the Best of Show Awards for Tech Ed
2003 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dallas, Texas on June 4.
Awards were presented to Windows technology vendors in several
categories. The field included more than 211 entries, and the
judges evaluated products based on their strategic importance to
the market, competitive advantage, and value to the customer.
“All of the products that were finalists for the Best of Show
Awards were truly excellent”, said Michael Otey, senior
technical editor. “It was difficult to make the final
decisions”, said David Chernicoff, senior contributing editor
for Windows & .NET Magazine.
The winner in the messaging category was Hypersoft’s
OmniAnalyser™. David Chernicoff said, “This product offers a
very comprehensive view of your entire email infrastructure and
how messages progress through it. You can drill down on
messages, find about message content, and see that information
in either real-time or report-based views”.
OmniAnalyser™ provides companies with central web-reporting
mechanisms, where data from multiple distributed sources over
the global e-mail organization is analyzed, and wide ranges of
comprehensive drill-down reports are offered to IT staff and
OmniAnalyser™ reports on service levels, usage trends, e-mail
costs and broad range of operational performance issues in
companies that use MS Exchange, Lotus Notes, Sendmail, iPlanet
within homogeneous or mixed e-mail environments.
As messaging systems are a prime target for SLAs, with popular
items being message delivery times, mailbox usage, and server
capacity management, message delivery times in particular can be
difficult to monitor across all the servers in bigger companies.
OmniAnalyser™ provides an easy way to keep track of all details
of the messaging system. Because all reports are web-based,
their interface is very straightforward and they are easily
accessible from everywhere within the organization just by using
a standard web browser.
Hypersoft presents the most recent versions of its OmniAnalyser™
and OmniContext™ Reporting Server software next at IT Forum in

Aix-en-Provence, 5 April 2003
Hypersoft S.A.S has opened its office in Aix-en-Provence,
France. Its main activities will concentrate on closer work with
Hypersoft customers in the Mediterranean region and further
development of OmniContext™, a web-based business intelligence
software product that provides analysis and reporting solution
for corporate data repositories.
Munich, 5 March 2003
Hypersoft Information Systems GmbH announced a new universal and
completely web-based business intelligence software product.
OmniContext™ Reporting Server is an analysis and reporting
solution for corporate data repositories. This includes
relational databases, messaging stores and tracking logs for
Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino servers, file and web
servers as well as non-tabular hierarchic data sources such as
HTML or XML files.
The challenge of staying in control over constantly expanding
information is greater than ever. More and more information
becomes critical to the running business. Thus, the ability to
identify and correlate these different information streams and
to link this corporate information to the actual business
processes is one of today’s most important competitive
advantages. Therefore, OmniContext™ has been designed to ensure
maximum scalability paired with the greatest possible variety of
opportunities to deploy different and flexible scenarios.
Advanced possibilities to filter and group data are supported.
Further, the software provides the ability to fully customize
the evaluation logic behind individual reports by using
mathematical, logical, or comparison operators as well as
built-in database functions combined with an easy-to-use
With its distributed and web-based software architecture,
OmniContext™ gains access to various information streams either
directly or by using so-called agents to gather information even
from remote servers across the enterprise. All information
collected is processed at the central OmniContext™ Reporting
Server, which operates, based on Microsoft’s SQL Server
technology. Users can generate predefined and ad hoc queries,
schedule the execution of reports and publish these to a number
of different destinations such as e-mail recipients and web
OmniContext™ allows for the analysis of the usage and relevance
of data. This is achieved by analyzing how selected individuals
or processes are accessing corporate data as well as how data is
exchanged between groups or individuals in relation to tasks,
objects, files, or projects. Including the information available
from the corporate messaging system, the software gives
completely new context and deep insight to the real constitution
of the available corporate knowledge. It helps to identify
individuals and their personal role and impact on different
The software’s unique security model separates data collection
from the data analysis process. Therefore, only authorisation
for analysis gains access to critical data, whereas the
collection of data happens without any permission to directly
operate on the OmniContext™ Reporting Server at all.
Corporate knowledge now becomes a tangible asset by merging
comprehensible data analysis with business processes and

Munich, 3 January 2003
The German-based Hypersoft Information Systems GmbH – developer
of messaging and communication analysis and reporting software –
announces the full compatibility of its OmniAnalyser™ software
with the new release of Lotus Domino™ R6. Thus, OmniAnalyser™
continues to be a significant milestone in the Hypersoft product
line, encompassing wide functionality for professional analysis
of corporate e-mail, visualization of mail and data traffic as
well as monitoring of mail servers and other data repositories.
The new software release will be presented live at the
Lotusphere®, January 26. – 30, 2003.
Today, e-mail often becomes mission-critical to the entire
business processes. Thus, a healthy and stable messaging system
is the backbone of a company’s activities. Companies obviously
need a powerful tool that non-intrusively analyzes the system
performance and supplies data to the involved IT staff in a
convenient user interface. OmniAnalyser™ is designed to address
these needs and leverages new technologies to catch the changes
on the rapidly advancing IT market.
OmniAnalyser™ provides all its information in Web reports, which
can be viewed with standard Internet browsers such as Internet
Explorer or Netscape Navigator. No additional client software is
required. The software has a distributed architecture, which
allows data collection from multiple servers and sites by using
e-mail with practically no impact on the network load. This
approach makes OmniAnalyser™ highly scalable for organizations
with hundreds of servers and unreliable connections to some
remote sites. The software allows for visualization of the
entire corporate mail network to analyze traffic volumes and
resource usage in order to identify server bottlenecks, SLA
incompliance, and system configuration faults.
The results can be viewed with a large variety of visualization
techniques. Among usual tabular and graphical representations,
network relationship diagrams are derived for the visualization
of communication routes, objects, and document links. The
hierarchical presentation of all information allows one to
easily get an overall view of the underlying communication
infrastructure and their characteristics. Reports automatically
can be published on a web server and send to predefined e-mail
OmniAnalyser™ is also available to customers as a service from
Hypersoft. The software supports Lotus Domino™ R5 and R6,
Microsoft Exchange 5.5 as well as Exchange 2002, iPlanet (Sun
ONE Integration Server) and Sendmail servers. Extensive support
and training are available from Hypersoft and its resellers
around the world. For more information contact
firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website at

Lotusphere® 2003 in Orlando, Florida.
Hypersoft Information Systems, a worldwide leading vendor in
metric and messaging analysis software for corporate
communication systems and data repositories, has released a new
version of its OmniAnalyser™ software for MS Exchange, Lotus
Notes, Sendmail and iPlanet. This includes the interoperability
with the new OmniContext™ Reporting Server, an analysis module
that enables IT managers as well as marketing and financial
controlling specialists to monitor, visualize, and link
traditional information assets and metrics along with
non-traditional information metrics.
The key to organizing and understanding information assets is in
the context where the information is from and what is related to
it. But tracing origins, authors, and relationships for many
kinds of information assets, today, is often based on
interpersonal communication and collaboration. Of course, with
today’s messaging platforms such as Lotus Notes and Microsoft
Exchange it becomes easy to track comprehensive information by
reading mail headers, server logs and other information assets.
However, neither data is sent only via e-mail nor is it
completely retrievable from log files, but gathered from
multiple data sources. Thus, this data is partially collected in
messaging stores or Domino databases, but also stored in
relational databases and other repositories and, therefore, is
not directly involved in the communication context.
Instead of developing complex algorithms to recognize patterns
and dependencies in complex databases and data volumes, the new
OmniContext™ Reporting Server automatically derives these
patterns and dependencies from the actual business process and
communication. To achieve this, the software gathers numeric
data from relational databases, messaging stores, XML and HTML
documents, file servers, and tables; it considers links and
relationships for documents and objects, collects data about
patterns, routes, and subjects of the enterprise communication
and business processes. In this way, OmniContext™ can process
both quantitative and qualitative information and discovers new
Communication patterns directly derived from the actual
corporate e-mail traffic are extremely valuable. They help to
identify personal roles and functions as well as true
involvement into business processes. It maps even the complete
corporate communication topology. All this information helps to
identify key individuals and knowledge owners related to
specific projects and their impact on the different business
The results can be viewed in a standard web browser with a large
variety of visualization techniques. Among usual tabular and
graphical representations, network relationship diagrams are
derived for the visualization of communication routes, objects,
and document links. The hierarchical presentation of all
information allows one to easily get an overall view of the
underlying communication infrastructure and their
characteristics. Reports automatically can be published on a web
server and sent to predefined e-mail recipients.
The software is compatible with the latest versions of MS
Windows, MS SQL Server, Lotus Domino and MS Exchange. Other
platforms such as iPlanet and Sendmail are supported.
OmniContext™ Reporting Server is also available as a
professional ASP service from Hypersoft.
