Microsoft announced earlier today the acquisition of Datazen Software, an industry leader in data visualization and mobile business intelligence across all major platforms - Windows, iOS, as well as Android. According to Kamal Hathi's post on The Official Microsoft Blog, "This acquisition accelerates our Power BI strategy to help organizations create a data culture with easy-to-use, accessible tools to extract maximum value from data – from anywhere, on any device."

Starting today, Microsoft offers the Datazen Server software for free to clients using SQL Server Enterprise Edition version 2008 or later and Software Assurance. The native mobile apps that allow these clients to visualize and interact with their data are also freely available via the respective app stores.

In time, Datazen technology will be integrated with Microsoft's cloud-based business analytics service Power BI "rounding out our mobile capabilities for customers who need a mobile BI solution implemented on-premises and optimized for SQL Server."

Datazen Software products remain available in their current form, and the entire team joins Microsoft. While Datazen CEO Miljan Braticevic writes in a blog post they have "an exciting roadmap" and "are really looking forward to bringing new features to market," no details are available at this time.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
