New Class of Applications Possible with Single Interface for Visualizing and Updating Data
Online PR News – 28-February-2012 – – Piscataway, NJ – InetSoft Technology, an innovator in data mashup driven dashboard and reporting solutions, announced a new release of its business intelligence platform, Style Intelligence. For the first time, users can not only view and analyze data but also input and modify data. Enterprises and solution providers can now build new types of Web-based applications that streamline business processes.
Examples of the types of applications that can be built with Style Intelligence’s drag and drop design tool are in the areas of:
• Financial planning – forecasting and budgeting often requires analysis of recent performance and historical trends so now planning assumptions can be created while analyzing the data.
• What-if modeling – as a specific example in planning, visual what-if modeling tools can be used to generate the inputs to be used in any departmental planning model.
• Data profiling – multi-dimensional charting can identify outliers, data entry errors, and omissions in externally supplied or user-generated data, and now corrections can be made in-place.
• Marketing lead importing – the process of cleansing imported leads can be made simpler and faster.
"Our Business Analytics benchmark research shows that nearly half (47%) of business analysts rate taking action on the outcome of analytics very important," said David Menninger, Vice President and Research Director, Ventana Research. "The new write-back features in InetSoft Style Intelligence will make it easier for users to act on the findings of their analysis."
“We have listened to our customers express dissatisfaction with the historical separation of business intelligence and process-oriented applications,” explained Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer at InetSoft. “Knowing how easy-to-use our dashboard design tools and the resulting interactive analyses are, they have asked for the ability to not only read data, but write it. Paired with our unique data mashup engine, we see this release opening tremendous opportunities for businesses to streamline tasks and processes.”
