Business Intelligence Software Reviews

Since 1996 InetSoft has been an innovating developer of business intelligence software. To date, our software has been used by over 3,000 organizations across the world and has been embedded into commercial solutions of other ISVs and SaaS providers. Below you will find some testimonials about why they chose InetSoft:

“What I liked the most was the drag-and-drop feature for putting together a data query…with other solutions you have no choice but to sit and write code…but with Style Intelligence, it doesn’t take two to three hours to design reports – you only need ten to fifteen minutes. The more I get into it, the more capabilities I discover that allow me to organize data in ways that make the most sense to me, and excitingly, our users will be able to benefit from these same features. Additionally, Style Intelligence offers truly superior dashboard graphics. Thus, we’ll be able to provide our customers with the ability to create highly polished, professional reports.” - Tadd Meyers, Business Intelligence Manager at NCN

"InetSoft is a business intelligence vendor that is not well-known but has more than 3,000 customers. Why do you need to know about another BI vendor? As I’ve written in the past, there’s a place in this market for both the megavendors and smaller vendors. InetSoft, one of the latter, has developed a broad set of capabilities over the years that have resonated with its customers. It recently announced and brought to market a significant new release, Style Intelligence 11. The InetSoft architecture reflects the maturity of the product gained over 15 years of development.

All in all, InetSoft offers a broad set of business intelligence features in a well-integrated, lightweight architecture. Its ability to provide rapid assembly of analytics and information is what our research into information applications and business intelligence has found to be critical for business analysts to meet the pressing needs for publishing information. This approach of application assembly is not found in most of the BI vendors products today and is a key differentiator for InetSoft to help organizations deliver business analytics in a simple and usable form." - David Menninger – VP & Research Director at Ventana Research

InetSoft Technology is headquartered in the U.S. and is a dashboard and reporting vendor with more than 3,000 clients in many geographies. The company sells directly as well as through more than 200 OEMs. In addition to a paid version of its software, the company also makes a free download available for evaluation and individual use. References report that the product is used by relatively small groups of users (approximately 160 on average, compared with other vendors profiled in this report) on datasets of less than 200 GB. In 2011, support for mobile devices was broadened, allowing users to access dashboards on iOS devices. Prior to this, dashboards could be accessed on any Flash-enabled device. Companies select InetSoft for functionality, as well as ease of use for developers and end users. In 2011, dashboards — an acknowledged specialty for InetSoft — were rated in the top quartile for functionality by references. - Gartner, Inc., 'Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms', January 2012

“In keeping with our strategy of combining best of breed solutions with our own, we set out to find a technology partner to add advanced business intelligence capabilities to our EAM suite. As our core solution is Web-based, that was a key criterion in our selection process. Beyond that we narrowed down our choice to InetSoft for their software’s ease of use, in terms of integration and dashboard development for us, as well as for the plant or facilities managers who need an intuitive and attractive interface. An added benefit was the ease of working with InetSoft, from the flexible approach to licensing terms to the help offered early on in the development cycle.” - Kay Jenkins, EVP of Products and Services at AssetPoint

“One of the biggest benefits we see with this product is our ability to react more quickly to potential problems that affect our bottom line by alerting us to crucial information on a real-time basis. This will allow us to respond very quickly to opportunities and take a more proactive approach to management. In addition to tracking financial data in real-time, we plan to create an interactive dashboard which will be used to identify and prevent health issues at the early stages. We believe our current use of this product is just the tip of the iceberg and we look forward to future applications.” - Brandon Depenbusch, GM of South Operations and Director of Research at ILS

“Resolve is the answer to controlling spiraling business operating costs resulting from managing technology infrastructure, and adding InetSoft’s polished, Flash-based dashboard visualization technology will be a welcome addition for both the operations users of Resolve as well as for the managers who made the investment decision to acquire it. Other aspects that made InetSoft stand out from the many options we evaluated were the ease of integration with our application and the level of support their team offered early in the proof-of-concept stage.” - Christian Mack, EVP, General Manager at gen-E

“There were a host of reasons for selecting InetSoft’s reporting functionality. From a functionally standpoint powerful data mashup capabilities were a pre-requisite given the unification of disparate data sources that our application performs. Beyond other technical reasons including the platform being Java-based and permitting rapid integration, InetSoft’s reporting solution stood out from others we evaluated in the area of ease-of-use. For end-users of our application, such as clinicians and hospital administrators, who are not business intelligence experts, interacting with, and even designing new report templates had to be intuitive and user-friendly, and InetSoft has accomplished that hands down.” - Thomas Hough, President of TNC

“We were very selective, having looked at about a dozen similar products. In the end, it was an easy choice because other offerings were unable to meet our fundamental requirements. We selected InetSoft on the basis that their product integrated well with our applications and business processes. In addition, and unique amongst similar solutions, the InetSoft products provided static as well as dynamic reporting, enabling our customers to investigate their data against pre-determined measurables. This functionality provides our customers with a powerful benchmarking tool to determine how many similar events have occurred over an established period, and whether they are increasing or decreasing in regularity, effectively measuring their safety programme against past performance.” - Martin Wimpress, IT Manager at Flight Data Services

“We anticipate InetSoft's BI application will provide an intuitive platform with which we can generate easy to use reports and dashboards for our users. By consolidating the data into interactive reports that are easy to read and access, our users will be able to quickly make business decisions based on current data. In addition, using this system will eliminate the manual processes employees have had to complete to consolidate the data before the deployment of the InetSoft solution. Removing these manual processes will allow for faster and more accurate data analysis.” - Adam Taylor, Project Manager at GMS
