Richardson, Texas (September 21, 2009) - The Hive Group today announces the general release of HiveOnDemand (www.hiveondemand.com), the world’s first on-demand service dedicated exclusively to treemapping.  The launch of this new offering is a notable milestone for business visualization.

For years, The Hive Group’s flagship software, Honeycomb, has enabled large enterprises to deploy systemic treemapping solutions to employees, customers, and suppliers.  Deeply embedded in business processes, these deployments deliver visual insight to information stored in a variety of complex enterprise data sources.  Now, The Hive Group extends this rich history with HiveOnDemand, and puts treemaps within reach of the rest of the world.

HiveOnDemand is a first-of-its-kind web-based treemapping service that brings the power of treemaps to those who need a simple, yet effective solution for visualizing their data.  With this offering, The Hive Group has made it possible for users to instantly create and manage dynamic treemaps in a convenient, interactive environment--without the need to install applications, maintain servers, or configure software.

“HiveOnDemand is an elegant solution for the visualization needs of many companies and users,” remarked Kent Hoskin, CTO of Robinson Solutions.  “With the Hive Group’s new on-demand treemapping service, large organizations, small companies, and even individuals have a compelling visualization option without the burden of traditional software infrastructure.”

Instant productivity is the central theme of HiveOnDemand.  Within seconds, a user can connect to data; and a treemap is instantly generated, automatically configured, and ready to use.  The Hive Group has designed the service to be easy to use for anyone—specifically focusing on the most likely and simplest of data sources including live Google Docs, flat files like CSV files, or a simple “copy and paste” from standard desktop software like Excel.  Interactive controls allow users to configure layout and presentation options, specify which data attributes to use, choose color ranges, and more—all from a convenient and simple interface.

Jim Bartoo, CEO of The Hive Group, describes the inspiration for developing the service:  “The Hive Group is proud of its long history of innovation.  Our highly immersive visual environments have led the industry for many years—allowing business users to collaborate and utilize treemaps in their daily activities.  HiveOnDemand simplifies the equation for building treemaps, and makes treemapping accessible to a larger audience than ever before.”
