Database access software is a core component of InetSoft's business intelligence software platform. The software can access multiple, disparate databases, any via a JDBC connector as well as OLAP cubes, flat files, Web services and other databases.
Speedy data access is enabled by InetSoft's patent-pending Data Block technology across a variety of data sources including relational databases, multi-dimensional databases, Web services, flat files and more. Data Modeler and Asset Composer are the technical tools for atomic data block creation.
The Data Modeler arranges raw data into business data items such as models and queries. Asset Composer creates more sophisticated, fine-tuned, data assets represented as Data Worksheets. The Flex-based Visual Composer is a drag-and-drop, spreadsheet-themed tool that allows users to further customize or assemble new Data Worksheets inside a Web browser.
The Data Block transformation and mashup engine is embedded in InetSoft's Style Intelligence server. For database sources, it takes full advantage of database power by retrieving data directly from the original source or from pre-aggregated materialized views. Alternatively, in-memory, compressed bitmap, and materialized queries can be created to deliver instantaneous response regardless of source.
