IBM Corp. shipped the latest version of its Alphablox analytics software last week, adding deeper integration support for linking the software with its Rational Application Developer and WebSphere Portal Server products.

IBM Corp. bought Alphablox Corp. in mid-2004, adding the “business intelligence” software maker’s technology to its information management software group. Alphablox is a Java-based platform for embedding analytics within applications. Developers can use Alphablox to add dashboards and other visual analytics features to applications, such as financial planning tools.

The new Alphablox version 8.3 extends the software’s integration with other products in IBM’s portfolio and includes enhancements in its database access features and cross-browser support. IBM has also added support for Cloudscape 10, a lightweight Java database designed to be embedded within applications. IBM’s last major update of the software, version 8.2, came out a year ago.

IBM’s Alphablox 8.3 is available for Linux, Unix and Windows.
