InetSoft Enhances Collaborative BI Capabilities with Latest Release
February 22, 2013 Technology News(PRLEAP.COM) Piscataway, NJ – February 22, 2013 - InetSoft Technology, an innovator in data mashup driven dashboard and reporting solutions, announced today the general availability of a new release of its business intelligence software suite. Notable enhancements in Style Intelligence 11.4 are in the area of collaborative BI, including annotations, shared bookmarks, and search.
Annotations allow users to write comments on any executive dashboard element so others can read them. Example cases could include explaining an aberration in a chart or sharing the summary of analytical conclusions.
Bookmarks let users save all the settings of a particular view of a chart or group of charts. For example, a person could be using an interactive visual analysis built by someone else, and make different selection list settings, date filters, chart coloring changes, and even how the data is graphed, and save those settings as a named bookmark for easy retrieval in the future. Whereas previously this was a personalization option, users can now share these bookmarks with others in their organization.
The search function lets users search across report meta data such as titles and descriptions, which can make the discovery of previous work done by others easier, saving duplication of effort.
Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer at InetSoft comments, "With the aim of business intelligence tools to help people make better decisions faster, these feature additions fit in nicely. The more we can facilitate information sharing and streamline people's efforts using our software, the more return our customers get out of their investment."
