Embedded BI Dashboarding

The importance of dashboards and interactive reports has grown considerably over the past decade, evidenced by the ubiquity of web reporting in every department of an enterprise or an any application at all.

A complete dashboard and reporting solution needs to provide the right mix of features and ease of use, but also must fit into the host application as seamlessly as possible.

This means that the dashboards and reports must be transparent to the end-user and must look and feel like a normal part of the host application - whether it is used by either internal users or external customers.

Many solution providers have built static dashboads, but with InetSoft's 100% web-based application, you'll be able to add self-service visual analytics.

Spotlight on Embedded Dashboarding

InetSoft's reporting and dashboard software, Style Intelligence, is 100% open standards based and relies on these open standards such as JSP, SOAP, and portlets to ensure tight interface integration.

Java-based Web or desktop applications can embed the InetSoft engine to render production reports. Key benefits include the ability to:

  • Reduce data query and manipulation complexity
  • Deliver high fidelity, professional quality presentation
  • Leverage standard skills - XML, JavaScript and Java
  • Reduce report maintenance and management cost

A Study of Assembly Student Management System (SMS)

Assembly is a school management system designed specifically for New Zealand schools. Its administrative and student portals offer interactive dashboards for student data exploration and precisely formatted reports for parents, school boards, and the Ministry of Education. This web-based system is currently being used by over 430 New Zealand schools.

Prior to partnering with InetSoft, Assembly was delivering administrative reports via a competitor's product. This covered some of their needs, but what was lacking was the ability to provide "caregiver reports", reports individually produced by each student's teacher, summarizing the various metrics of each student's achievement.

In order to do this, they needed a reporting solution with which they could create a master report and put a data report underneath it. Thanks to InetSoft's robust Data Block and report template technology, Style Intelligence was the only software evaluated with which this could be done both easily and quickly.
