PNGC Power Chooses InetSoft's Business Intelligence Software

Electric generation and transmission cooperative to conserve IT resources with self-service reporting

Piscataway, NJ - January 18, 2010 - InetSoft Technology (www.inetsoft.com), an innovator in dashboard, reporting and data mashup solutions, announced that PNGC Power has selected InetSoft’s Style Intelligence for its information reporting needs.

PNGC Power is an electric generation and transmission cooperative that provides its members increased market presence, the ability to optimize loads and resources, and business management tools such as cost-of-service analyses. The primary users of the Style Intelligence BI platform will be PNGC Power business analysts and economists responsible for analyzing, modeling and reporting on metered power usage data to member utilities. Business users will enjoy a new level of self-service by making data access requests directly to the PNGC data warehouse, whereas they formerly relied on IT assistance for many regular reporting requirements.

"The business case for this kind of self-service reporting software was clear given the bottleneck we had in our data access processes," explained Kevin Watkins, Vice President of Engineering at PNGC Power. "We needed to reduce our reliance on IT for basic access to information that our staff depends on to serve our members. We evaluated several options including developing a solution internally, but given the reasonable initial investment, broad functionality, and ease of use of the software, we chose InetSoft. We were particularly interested in the data grid caching technology built into the application, and we are excited to see the system in action."

"Our mission has been to enable the kind of self-service reporting PNGC Power was seeking," Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer at InetSoft commented, "Delivering on that promise requires the right combination of aesthetic appeal and user-friendliness alongside a strong, flexible data access infrastructure. We are pleased to be the solution PNGC chose to power their business intelligence network."

Style Intelligence is a full-featured business intelligence solution that is 100% Java at the server level and HTML, JavaScript, and Flash at the client level, which combined with its SOA architecture and open standards-based technology, makes for an ideal embedding and integration-ready application for dashboards and visualization. End-users get visually compelling, highly interactive access to data, and solution providers get a highly customizable, quick to learn and quick to deploy business intelligence toolset and information delivery platform.
