InetSoft Technology has updated 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 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. 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 metadata, such as titles and descriptions, which can make the discovery of previous work done by others easier and reduce 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.”

Style Intelligence is a business intelligence solution for dashboard reporting that includes a data mashup engine. End users receive visually compelling, highly interactive access to data, and IT gets a highly customizable, easy-to-learn, and quick-to-deploy BI toolset and information delivery platform. Data mashup capabilities integrate disparate data sources, enabling agile development and providing maximum self-service.  The application's SOA architecture and open standards-based technology make for an ideal embedding and integration-ready application for dashboards, production reporting, and visualization.
