Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Microsoft is buying a business intelligence firm based in Boise, Idaho.

ProClarity has been an MS partner for some time and makes analysis and visualisation software to sit on top of other MS business intelligence products. The price of the purchase was not revealed.

According to MS's press release, this fits in with the company's strategy to get biz intel software used by "decision-makers at all levels".

Analyst house Ovum described the move as very significant, saying: "Microsoft is very much back in the BI (business intelligence) race, but it hasn't won by any means." More from Ovum here.
