InetSoft Advances Agile BI with New Release of Style Intelligence

Upgrades include streamlined, easier-to-use developer and administrative tools
Piscataway, NJ - February 1, 2011 - InetSoft Technology (www.inetsoft.com), an innovator in dashboard, reporting and mashup solutions, announced a new release of its flagship business intelligence software application, Style Intelligence. The new release expands upon InetSoft’s pioneering of the concept of agile BI, with several feature enhancements that will allow developers and administrators to work more efficiently and nimbly.

The most noticeable advance is the creation of a single application called Style Studio that merges developer applications such as a report designer, a data modeler, and a data mashup tool. This new application uses the Netbeans GUI framework, and allows users to customize the layout and arrangement of the various panes to better suit how they work. As part of this work, many usability improvements have been delivered to make the development process more efficient.

A cornerstone of InetSoft's agile BI functionality is the direct data access and enterprise data mashup engine built with InetSoft's patent-pending Data Block technology. Enterprises can more easily combine data from data warehouses, operational databases, and spreadsheet sources to be able to see a detailed, unified view of the performance of whatever business function they wish, as well as high-level view of all of the organization’s key metrics. Another level of agility is gained because no ETL process or data warehouse is necessary to aggregate operational data. But if ETL processes and data warehouse are used, InetSoft's application facilitates quick and easy experimentation with new dashboards or reports using new data models which can later be codified in ETL processes when ready.

Among the dozens of other feature enhancements available in this release are:

• Report table design gets more drag-and-drop and fine-tuned control capabilities
• Dashboards can automatically calculate popular business formulas such as running totals, moving averages, period-over-period changes
• Intelligent automatic query trap handling for more reliable ad hoc reporting
• Greater control and customization for dashboards and visualizations
• Automated scheduler improvements to do things such as email or archive dashboard snapshots, or to send alerts based on more complex calculations or thresholds
• New offline dashboard and report viewing options
• Upgraded SAP connectivity is now supported out-of-the-box
• More flexible administration of nodes in clustered environments

“We have been championing agile BI for several years,” points out Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer at InetSoft. “In fact, we added it to our tagline ‘Agile. Easy. Robust.’ three years ago. Now it seems to be an area of focus in BI everywhere, which is gratifying to see. It continues to guide our product development as you can see in the advances noted today because ultimately it streamlines the efforts of developers and users whether they be in an enterprise or are solution developers embedding BI in their applications. Not only does agile BI make people happier, it also saves time and money.”

InetSoft’s business intelligence software application, Style Intelligence, is a full-featured business intelligence solution that is 100% Java at the server level, and HTML, JavaScript, and Flash at the client level. That, combined with its SOA architecture and open standards-based technology, makes for an ideal embedding and integration-ready application for dashboards and reporting. End-users get visually compelling, highly interactive access to data, while solution providers get a highly customizable, easy to learn and quick to deploy business intelligence toolset and information delivery platform.
