Waltham, MA, August 11, 2010 -- Telerik, a leading vendor of development tools and user interface components for .NET, announced support for interactive reports for their reporting solution – Telerik Reporting. This functionality gives business users the freedom to explore data in a visual and interactive way in order to gain insight into how aggregates were arrived at, what does each high-level number mean, and drill through the data pertaining to a high level concept.
“With the addition of interactivity we succeeded in bringing Telerik Reporting one step closer to business analysts,” said Vassil Petev, Telerik Reporting Manager. “We are happy that we managed to deliver a functionality which gives users the freedom to explore data in a way that is most suitable for their business needs.”
Telerik Reporting employs several approaches to allow end-users to explore data in a visual and interactive way:
- Drill-through allows end-users to drill through to details by looking into secondary reports, and get a better understanding of the information presented. For example, a dashboard might contain the Top 10 sales persons in your company, and each sales person might link to a report that shows all his/her orders.
- Bookmarks and bookmark links can be used to provide a customized table of contents or direct users to key locations in a report.
- Hyperlinks allow end-users to access external Web pages by simply clicking on that item in the report.
- Report parameters can be used to filter and slice data, show related reports and subreports, and control sorting and grouping.
The interactivity features are available in all report viewers offered by Telerik Reporting - WPF, Silverlight, WinForms and ASP.NET. This means that users are able to deliver a rich report environment to end-users without worrying about platform limitations.
Telerik is a leading vendor of ASP.NET AJAX, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, WinForms and WPF controls and components, as well as .NET Reporting, .NET ORM , .NET CMS, TFS, Code Analysis and Web Application Testing Tools.
