ERP users can upgrade dashboarding and create data mashups
Online PR News – 22-February-2010 – – Piscataway, NJ – InetSoft Technology (www.inetsoft.com), an innovator of dashboard, reporting and mashup solutions, announced that its flagship business intelligence software application, Style Intelligence, now supports data access to the following enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications: SAP, Siebel, JDE, and PeopleSoft. This development broadens the options for owners of these popular ERP applications by providing interactive Flash-based dashboarding and powerful data mashups using multiple data sources inside and outside of their corporate network.
InetSoft’s dashboard and reporting software previously provided simultaneous access to open standards-based data sources such as relational databases, and a host of other data sources including: XML, SOAP, Java beans (POJO), EJB beans, flat files, CORBA objects, and; OLAP cubes including Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services, Hyperion ESSbase, Oracle OLAP, and SAP NetWeaver. The first third-party proprietary data source added was Salesforce.com’s in 2008, and this advance builds on that success.
“Previously, organizations that had made substantial investments in these ERP applications had been held hostage,” explained Mark Flaherty, Vice President of Marketing at InetSoft. “They had to make do with primitive static reports and crude dashboards that lacked interactivity, or they had to accept an expensive upgrade path to their ERP vendor’s business intelligence suite. Even then, the option to combine their data with other data sources was severely limited. Now, data mashups have become more popular, and end-users expect visually pleasing charting and rich data interactivity. So, we expect strong interest from these kinds of enterprises wishing to evaluate our dashboard application.”
