As many businesses start to explore HTML5 and the “open web” for their future interface for Business Intelligence applications, InfoSol made a major announcement today at their IBIS 2012 seminar that will make that a whole lot easier to achieve.
The unveiling of InfoBurst Apps was met with great excitement after a jaw-dropping live demonstration showed how combining HTML5 based interfaces with the InfoBurst platform can provide the next generation of dual mobile / web , “deploy anywhere” BI applications.
Today, the InfoBurst® Platform is widely used as a data source for Xcelsius Dashboards where it can provide very fast access to large volumes of cached data and also read/write to any database in real time.
InfoBurst® provides tools to create and manage Applications where a cache can be selected together with any blocks or queries that are required and InfoBurst will auto-generate a template that can be used by a developer to “wire-up” the logic required.
Applications are hosted on the InfoBurst Server (apps.infosol.com) and can be accessed by any browser (including mobile) but to improve the user experience on iPad, a new Application will be available in the App Store soon that will allow a user to easily view and launch from the available InfoBurst Apps on a selected server plus provide additional features such as local caching and annotation where a user could highlight an area on the screen and send a screen-capture via Email.
“Mobile Business Intelligence is hot right now and with the new InfoBurst® Apps announcement it’s going to get a lot hotter“, said Paul Grill, President & CEO of InfoSol, “Most businesses and institutions want to design and develop customized mobile and web business intelligence dashboards and applications rather than use pre-determined views. InfoBurst® Apps provides the platform to make the management and functionality of those applications more powerful and versatile for both enterprise and small deployments alike”.
