Hexagon Technologies, Inc. Launches Enterprise Business Monitoring Platform to Disrupt the Traditional Business Intelligence Market

Hexagon Technologies officially launches its Enterprise Business Monitoring software platform designed to give firms a pro-active and timely approach to capitalizing on business data.
