InetSoft Technology, a pioneer in mashup-driven Big Data analytics and reporting, has announced the general availability of the latest release of its Style Intelligence business intelligence platform. Headlining the dozens of enhancements is the introduction of native apps for Android and iOS devices, plus full support for HTML5 for organizations not allowing Flash browser plug-ins.
The breadth of end-user consumption of interactive dashboards and visualizations is even more comprehensive and optimized to the device platform. Mobile users will experience speed performance improvements and all of the interactivity they are accustomed to when accessing dashboards and reports from their Flash-enabled desktops, with an interface designed for the smaller screen sizes and touch-based controls. For organizations that are moving away from the Flash browser plug-in, the HTML5 delivery option has also been enhanced for speed and interactivity completeness.
A second area of feature development is in InetSoft's data grid cache technology, a hybrid in-memory and disk-based caching option for maximizing performance for Big Data and operational business intelligence applications. Turning on this option for multiple dashboards and visual analyses that share a data mashup has been streamlined, both in terms of ease of administration and in infrastructure overhead. Among end-user oriented features, finance departments have the convenience of using custom fiscal calendar dates in a function library, and alerts have been expanded to be triggered by more types of on-dashboard metric changes.
"One of our product development goals is to make access to business intelligence as pervasive as possible," comments Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer at InetSoft. "This release delivers on that goal, widening and enhancing access no matter the device preference, the physical location, or the technology environment."
