InetSoft Reporting Software - Report Data Interface

InetSoft's reporting software has seamless report data interface capabilities that allow you explore data in ways that up to now were impossible. View the example below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution.

The following sections discuss the buttons and features in the ‘Data Query’interface. This button can be used to select a completely new data source. Click on the button and observe that the ‘Select Data Source’ dialog pops up.

This button is used to create a new formula. Selecting this button will invoke the ‘Formula Editor’, where you may write an expression involving the query fields. Checking the ‘SQL’ box will enable you to include SQL functions in the editor, otherwise it provides you with simple JavaScript functions.

Clicking on the ‘Delete’ button at the top of the ‘Columns’ element toggles delete mode. In this mode you delete columns with a click.

These arrows can be used to set the display order of any of the columns in a report. Assume that you have multiple detail columns in a report, i.e. ‘State’, ‘Customer’, and ‘Email’ in that order of display. If you want ‘Customer’ to be the first column in the report then click on the up-arrow and then click on that particular detail column to move it up. The down arrow is used to move the columns down.

InetSoft Viewpoint

“Data mashup also has a second connotation in that it is more federated real time or right time as opposed to being persistent. There is value in persistent data which is typically found in enterprise data warehouses, marts, master data management systems, etc, but they live side by side in a sense with these virtualized data repositories. Again data virtualization platforms make it possible to mash up all of your source systems including some of your transactional systems together into a data services layer.

So as you will see today’s best of breed data virtualization platforms really are not just a data federation platform or an EII platform as in the past. They provide a broader range of virtualization across more structured and unstructured data and provide the data services capability.

Now how does that relate to the rest of the layers? Obviously you have got infrastructure. You will have business processes or SOA types of middleware and message buses. You will have transaction systems, transactional services, applications, logic etc and analytical systems as well. And then on top of that you have your visualization or UI layer. We will come back to this slide later after we have understood how virtualization works and plays a role in enterprise architecture. We will understand the relationship with data management tools like ETL, data quality, and data modeling that you might already have. Then there are SOA kinds of tools, SOA registry, messaging, etc, and then also you have application management and monitoring tools. But this you a quick high level picture of where data mashup fits in.” - Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer
