Support for Mobile BI Broadened in New Business Intelligence Software Release
Apple iOS devices get rich interactive dashboard reporting via HTML5
Piscataway, NJ – August 23, 2011 – InetSoft Technology, an innovator in data mashup driven dashboard and reporting solutions, announced the release of Style Intelligence 11.1, a new version of its flagship business intelligence software for data mashups, dashboards and reporting. This latest point release features full support for mobile BI on Apple® iOS devices such as the iPhone ® and iPad®.
Previously only Flash enabled mobile devices could leverage InetSoft's web-based server application for interactive dashboards and visualizations. Now, non-Flash enabled browsers such as those on Apple devices are served via HTML5 - the new markup Internet markup language that supports rich interactivity. Users of all mobile devices can now utilize interactive controls such as selection lists and slider bars to filter and analyze large amounts of data in an intuitive, compact information delivery system. For BI developers, Style Intelligence allows a develop-once and deploy-on-all methodology to support all end-user devices, whether they are desktops, laptops, tablets or phones.
Other enhancements in this release meet product improvement requests that make work for dashboard and report developers easier and quicker. These include on-the-fly pre-aggregate and post-aggregate computations which enable for instance, charts showing percentages of a total without the extra steps of adding those metrics at the data modeling layer using InetSoft's data mashup and transformation tools. Another improvement makes remote team development more efficient in multi-tiered support environments such as those run by SaaS providers or multi-national enterprises.
“This product release demonstrates a natural progression for our BI application,” commented Mark Flaherty, CMO at InetSoft. “We focus on making our software user-friendly, and with business users demanding the flexibility of accessing their corporate information on the platform of their choice, we’re meeting that demand. At the same time, we aim to make the lives of IT professionals easier by streamlining the process of mobile BI development. And we pack the release with other enhancements that speed up their workflow and reduce their BI application support overhead.”
