The Real Time Reporting Solution from InetSoft

InetSoft provides an application for real time reporting. Founded in 1996, InetSoft built a tradition of award-winning products. Now it's powerful reporting engine and sophisticated design tools enable rock-solid real time reporting that meets the demands of sophisticated report consumers.

The challenge for real time reporting is two-fold: create a high performance data access engine and a high performance report generation engine.

InetSoft has honed both components to its real time reporting solution, Style Intelligence. Whether is it is paginated reports or visually compelling charts, all can be updated in real time with the most up to date data. The only dependency is the update rate of the databases that you configure Style Intelligence to access.

Data Access Capabilities

Almost any operational database can be accessed provided there is JDBC connector available. In addition to such open data sources, connectors exist for many others such as XML, SOAP, Java beans (POJO), Microsoft Excel, flat files, OLAP cubes, SAP, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, salesforce.com, Siebel CRM, Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services, Hyperion ESSbase, Oracle OLAP, and SAP NetWeaver.

Style Intelligence's data access is live, or real-time, by default.Very large data sets are manageable due to a myriad of optimization techniques InetSoft has developed including caching, materialized views, pre-aggregation and fine tuning options.

When near real-time reporting is sufficient, Style Intelligence offers a proprietary technology called 'Data Grid Cahce.' It is based on Hadoop and

Map/Reduce concepts, and it stores the data needed for a particular interactive report in a columnar disk-based cache along with the necessary indexes to support speedy data access. The software can automatically build these data grid caches on preferred schedules basis when the source datasets are particularly large, in the terabyte and up ranges, and when there is a requirement to minimize queries to live operational databases.

"We selected InetSoft's Style Report Professional for a time-tested, dependable publishing engine and a powerful, yet easy-to-use report designer that would save resources associated with internal development of publishing capabilities and client customization requests. We were looking for a Java-based publishing solution that could be easily integrated with our own. We have been pleased with deployment, and the reporting software's part in our ability to help companies of all sizes realize cost reduction and revenue acceleration associated with critical configuration and accurate quoting solutions."
