InetSoft Technology: Exploratory Visualization Tool

A Viewsheet is a visualization of a Data Worksheet. Data Worksheets are built using Data Block™ technology, the flexible framework that allows you to mash up and manipulate data from multiple sources in real time.

The Viewsheet extracts the data relationships that you develop in the Data Worksheet, and presents them within an intuitive and interactive visual interface. You can use the Viewsheet to navigate any inherent hierarchy in the data, and you can add new information for “what-if ” analysis and other advanced applications.

Visualization using Viewsheets goes far beyond the ad hoc querying you might use to find answers to existing questions. With Viewsheets, you will be able to explore your data from every angle, discover new patterns, test new ideas, and envision new opportunities.

InetSoft Viewpoint

"The open standards aspect is very important to us since it allows our customers to integrate our technology more easily and leverage assets they already have, in terms of hardware and software and IT skills. So based on this BI platform, our software delivers a host of front-end BI tools including visualization tools, enterprise reporting, monitoring dashboards, and analysis. Those functions were based on a very powerful patent-pending technology we call Data Block.

This Data Block technology is really made up of a back-end data mashup engine and a caching middle layer. There is a front-end we call the worksheet, which is a Web-based, spreadsheet-like user interface that a power user can easily use to combine and transform data blocks. The data blocks are typically started at the atomic data block level. That is typically created by an IT or a BI specialist. They choose these data blocks and performance tune those data blocks.

Then the power users can use those building blocks to build more complex, but more useful structures for answering the questions they have on hand. And all the data blocks you build, in turn become building blocks themselves. You can build on this architecture, building very sophisticated structures which you can use to answer a wide range of unanticipatible questions. " - Luke Liang, CEO, InetSoft
