Unlimited Flexibility in Mashups and Reporting

Style Studio includes a robust data mashup tool that allows developers to extract vast amounts of data from virtually any source.This is done using a drag and drop tool that automatically writes data queries without requiring the writing of code directly. Style Studio has an extensible architecture which allows new data source types to be added to the toolkit without any modification to the existing code base.

Style Studio is not only limited to supporting relational databases, it is capable of querying multiple data source types such as OLAP databases (XMLA), XML data, Text files, Java Objects, Web Services (SOAP), and SAP.

Style's Data Worksheets empower developers to build a basis for unlimited BI. Once developers create a data worksheet with new data mashups, they can be saved as assets which can then be used as a source of data. The Data Worksheet facilitates powerful data mashup capabilities, which enables compete and accurate data analyses for business-end users. The intuitive interface allows the development of complex queries and combinations of multiple queries, combining an almost unlimited number of disparate sources into a single virtual dataset.

Style Studio is equipped with enterprise-class report design tools to generate simple and complex reports. Developers can configure reports to be completely automated and incorporate advanced user interactivity. Style Studio offers extensive Java based scripting capabilities that can be used to further customize dashboards and VPMs. Embedded scripts can manipulate reports by modifying the report element properties and contents, which are exposed as JavaScript objects.
