Piscataway, NJ – November 1, 2004 - InetSoft Technology has announced the release of Style Report™ 6.5. This release of version 6.5 includes new reporting features that move InetSoft into prime position to become the market leader in web-based reporting software and business intelligence performance management software. These new feature enhancements, including a complete web-based ad-hoc reporting interface with an easy to use report creation wizard, a redesigned and more streamlined Report Designer, and an improved clustering system, make Style Report a more powerful reporting product for end users, developers, and administrators.
With growing demands from end users for custom reports, considerable
emphasis has been placed on the need for powerful, self-service
features that enable non-technical end- users to create and modify
reports on their own, thereby reducing the time and cost overhead
of developing custom reports and data views for these users. For
an ad-hoc reporting tool to effectively reduce development efforts,
it must cater to a wide range of end-users, starting with the least
technical, and must provide them with an easy to use system that allows
them to create any type of report within a well defined and guided
framework. Style Report's new ad-hoc reporting system does this
through an easy to use, but powerful, wizard-driven report creation
mechanism. End-users need not have any knowledge of the underlying
data source(s) or queries since they are guided through a set of
easy-to-follow steps ensuring the creation of a perfect custom report with minimal
technical knowledge required. The result is a powerful, streamlined,
reporting environment for end-users that lifts the burden from development,
support, and IT.
Developers will also benefit from the new Style Report 6.5 release.
The burden of custom report creation will be lifted from
development, freeing up valuable resources. Report developers will
also be better equipped to create and maintain reports, queries, and
data models and views, which are all available to the end users for ad hoc report creation. A restructured Report Designer provides quick access to
report component properties and fast editing capabilities. Reusable
report components reduce development overhead even more, ensuring
that Style Report is the most efficient reporting solution available
to every development team.
With growing demands on high availability and scalability of enterprise
level solutions, InetSoft is providing Style Report system administrators
with a new server clustering system that allows reporting servers
to be collected together into easy to manage clusters. The Style
Report solution may be scaled simply by adding another node onto
the reporting cluster. Administration of the cluster is managed
through a single "master" server. Operations such as load balancing,
starting / stopping, monitoring, and synching may all be controlled
from a simple web-based interface.
By providing new, powerful features targeted toward end users,
developers, and administrators, Style Report version 6.5 aims to
provide an immediate and evident return on the investment, through major
reductions in the amount of development and administration overhead. Gone are
the days of end users requesting customized reports from your development/support
department which then require re-tasking and allotment of valuable resources.
Style Report 6.5 increases the usability and creation capabilities
for developers, administrators, and end users through an innovative
approach to integrated, web-based, self-service components.
