PostgreSQL Business Intelligence Dashboard Reporting

PostgreSQL is an object-relational database management system available for many platforms. It implements the majority of the SQL:2008 standard, is ACID-compliant, is fully transactional, has extensible data types, operators, index methods, functions, aggregates, procedural languages, and has a large number of extensions written by third parties.

Data Integration Software

The information access needs of each business vary greatly. From the data sources used, to the dashboard or report design requirements, to the security needed; every company has their own unique set of requirements that must be fulfilled.

One important topic that is often forgotten is that of data source integration. If data cannot be retrieved, it cannot be used to produce reports. Style Intelligence provides interfaces for multiple data source types and a flexible Java API that can interface with any custom data source.

Style Intelligence

Just as the dashboard and reporting requirements differ between each business, so do the data integration requirements. Some businesses need to report off of standard relational databases whereas others need to report off of data sources such as XML or Java beans.

Style Intelligence supplies an out-of-the-box interface for every popular data source type and a flexible API that can be used to integrate with any custom data source.

All data source connections are defined in and managed through the Query Builder in the Report Designer and the Visual Composer. The type of source can be selected from the dropdown list and then the particular connection information can be entered. Each data source type requires specific connection information related to that source.

Other Data Access

Style Intelligence provides more choices for data integration than many other reporting and business intelligence tools on the market. Interfaces for relational databases, XML, SOAP, CORBA, flat files, and custom data sources provide unlimited flexibility for data source integration and multiple data source access.

A powerful meta-data layer provides report designers and end-users with the ability to create ad hoc queries for any report without having knowledge of the particular data source. Style Intelligence can integrate with any data source to produce any type of dashboard or report for all end-user populations.
