MyEureka

MyEureka

Corporate portal software originally from Information Advantage, Inc., Eden Prairie, MN. MyEureka provided HTML templates and Java-based server applications for developing a corporate intranet. It included a search engine and repository for linking enterprise-wide information as well as agents that could deliver custom Web pages to different user groups as well as individual news pages to each user.

MyEureka supported Information Advantage's own OLAP and ROLAP products, as well as databases from SAP, PeopleSoft and others. Information Advantage coined the term "business intelligence portal" to define this product family, because it was the first to integrate BI software (query, reporting, OLAP) with the portal framework. The company was acquired by Sterling Software Corporation in 1999, and the MyEureka product family was renamed Eureka Strategy. Eighteen months later, Sterling was acquired by Computer Associates (CA), and Eureka fell under CA's CleverPath umbrella.
