Easy-to-Use, Visually Compelling Dashboards and Reports

Key to a successful deployment is high adoption and usage, and a key ingredient to that end is offering engaging Flash-based interactive dashboards with simple point-and-click usage. Make it simple enough that little or no training is necessary. Make it highly interactive so gigabytes of data can be explored from a single view for two benefits:

  • avoid overwhelming users by saving them from having to search through hundreds of static reports
  • cut down on ad hoc reporting requests that a DBA needs to serve

When you analyze your options for a BI solution, you will find these advantages from InetSoft:

  • greater agility and ease of use,
  • more rapid deployment times
  • more flexible and affordable pricing

Powerful Enterprise Data Mashups

A key strength of InetSoft's business intelligence software is its depth of support for data mashups. Data from any of the sources listed above can be combined in productive ways to gain new insights and streamline information consumption.

In addition, InetSoft has innovated unique capabilities for enterprise mashups. You do not have to be a BI analyst to create your own mashups. You can combine disparate tables and fields that were not previously mapped in a data model. Beyond that, you can also bring in your own data sets such as those in personal spreadsheets or those generated by vendors or partners. Whatever dashboards or reports you make from them are now shareable inside the enterprise BI space.

So whether your goal is increasing access to information in your organization or embedding dashboards into your on-premise or SaaS application, evaluate InetSoft's dashboards and reporting software for its ease of use and deployment, agility, and robustness.
