Agile Business Reporting Tool

Are you searching for an agile business reporting tool to help you keep up with your organization's informational needs? InetSoft offers reporting tools through its flagship platform Style Intelligence and a stand alone reporting tool called Style Report Enterprise.

Agile BI is often defined in two ways. The first is when a BI implementation in an agile manner through iterations. This is useful because users often do not know exactly what metrics are useful to them ahead of performing an analysis, so giving them some draft versions of their reports allows them to fine-tune as they are go along.

This is effective because it's hard to understand what messages are in the data until they're noticed; only then do users realize what changes are needed. InetSoft's business agile reporting tool is flexible enough to be tweaked endlessly without going back to the drawing board.

The other side of agile BI is self-service BI. The Business Intelligence application, itself, is agile. The user can interact with it and change it, and even play around in the data. These new Big Data capabilities can provide a great benefit to today's organizations. The larger the amount of data allowed for, the more questions can be answered definitively.
