InetSoft Product Information: SQL Reporting Tools

InetSoft formed in 1996 to deliver SQL reporting tools that would be more productive for database analysts to use compared to the traditional methods of SQL programming. Soon thereafter the company's first reporting tool began winning awards from developers - starting an 8-year streak of Readers Choice awards from the Java Developer Journal for best reporting tool.

Today InetSoft's Style Intelligence™ platform continues to lead among SQL reporting tools for:

  • its strengths in being able to produce pixel-perfect output to meet the most demanding of formatting requirements
  • for the time it saves versus hand-coding SQL thanks to a drag and drop interface
  • without sacrificing any of the control and flexibility that other GUI tools lack
