Hyperion IR (Brio) to be retired and replaced by Toad Data Point
Please be advised that Hyperion IR (Brio) query officially retires on Dec. 21. Toad Data Point Professional is the recommended replacement tool.
Toad Data Point Professional allows you to connect to a wide range of data sources, including SQL based and NoSQL databases, ODBC, Business Intelligence sources and Microsoft Excel or Access.
You can also use a single tool for basic querying and reporting needs and get consistent results; create Database Diagrams as templates for queries to build reports; and to get insight into understanding database relationships between tables.
This tool also allows users to create a query without writing or editing SQL statements. Even for those familiar with SQL, the GUI (graphical user interface) makes it easier to create relationships and visualize the query.
Training information for Toad Data Point Professional is now available:
- Hyperion IR Studio (Brio) Replacement on the Health System Data Warehouse website, including information, documentation, FAQs, tool resources, and training
