InetSoft Technology, an innovator in mashup-driven dashboard and reporting solutions, announced a new release of its business intelligence platform Style Intelligence, version 11.5. Headlining the enhancements is a new data source connector for the Apache Hive data warehouse system for Hadoop so that dashboards, visual analyses, and data mashups can be made as easily as with any enterprise data source.
The most noticeable improvement for this release is a user interface refresh that reflects the clean, modern design style more commonly found in today’s Web-based applications. A long list of dashboard and visualization design-oriented features accompany this release, and a couple of examples are: automatic resizing with browser window-size and adding statistics-driven chart lines over data for things like upper and lower bands, percentiles, and confidence intervals. For IT administrators, new features include additional audit reports, greater control over administrative functions based on user, group, and role, and the ability to enable even more self-service for end-users, who can now schedule report and dashboard snapshot emailing on their own.
Mark Flaherty, CMO of InetSoft, comments “Besides a cosmetic refresh of our user interface and meeting the market’s demand for more big data connectivity, the driving theme of this release was to build on our position of offering the most IT-friendly implementation of self-service business intelligence. This has been a major win factor for us once the end-user community is satisfied with the dashboarding and analytics capabilities. The people who need to deploy and support the solution gravitate to us because they find the application easy to set up through the evaluation process, and they see the power of the breadth of customization capabilities from portal embedding to programmatic control of asset generation.”
