Desktop App Provides Drag and Drop Design of Shareable, Interactive Business Dashboards
Online PR News – 16-February-2010 – – Piscataway, NJ – InetSoft Technology (www.inetsoft.com), an innovator of dashboard, reporting and mashup solutions, announced the launch of Style Scope Free Edition, a free dashboard software application derived from the company’s powerful enterprise-class commercial dashboard product, Style Scope.
Style Scope Free Edition is a small-footprint server that delivers Web-based interactive Flash dashboards and visualizations. The Java-based application can be installed on any Windows, Unix, or Mac desktop and can be connected to data in standard relational databases as well as spreadsheets. The kinds of dashboards that can be created range from monitoring and executive dashboards to sophisticated interactive visual analysis and business management dashboards.
Users step through a simple setup wizard to point to the location of the operational data and create datasets. With a drag and drop dashboard designer, dashboard components such as charts, gauges, selection lists, and date sliders are placed on a worksheet design space. Then the fields to be displayed or filtered are dropped on top of them. In minutes a fully-functional reporting dashboard can be built and shared inside a local area network.
“The sharing capabilities of our new free dashboard offering stand out from the other free solutions out there,” explained Mark Flaherty, Vice President of Marketing at InetSoft. “For a small business or a single department, this makes for a very robust dashboard solution, offering state-of-the-art Flex-based chart rendering and interactivity. And for mid and large sized enterprises it offers an entry point for self-evaluation or proof of concept before stepping up to our commercial business intelligence offering.”
