JReport OnDemand Integration Combines Reporting with Real-time Information Integration

 

ROCKVILLE, Md. and SAN MATEO, Ca. – March 20, 2006 – JReport, the leading embedded reporting solution for Java applications, and Composite Software, the leader in on-demand data integration, today announced the companies have partnered to offer a new joint solution: JReport OnDemand Integration. The companies will co-market and co-sell the new reporting solution with out-of-the-box information integration capabilities.

The new joint product addresses customers’ demand to embed reporting and operational business intelligence into all types of applications and systems. Virtually all applications can benefit from improved reporting and data presentation, and by partnering the leader in Java-based reporting with the leader in enterprise information integration (EII), customers will have access to a powerful reporting solution that can be tightly integrated with data sources throughout their organization.

JReport OnDemand Integration allows reports to be created based on information distributed throughout an organization. Composite’s software pulls information from traditional data sources such as databases and packaged applications and importantly, from countless other structured and semi-structured data sources such as XML, Excel spreadsheets, flat files and Web services.

Composite’s offering creates a unified abstraction layer for data across a company, allowing that data to be correlated regardless of which application it came from. It presents live data from different sources as if it existed in a single place. Complementary to a data warehouse, EII appears as a virtual database – transparently generating queries to multiple sources behind the scenes and combining information appropriately as it is returned. The benefits are more flexibility, unlimited detail, and always-current data.

By combining EII with sophisticated reporting, joint customers can create reports based on information that spans multiple applications and sources, allowing a more comprehensive picture of business operations. With the growing number of data sources in today’s IT environment, data integration is an ever-important requirement.

“Today’s fast-paced business must have access to the data that depicts an accurate picture of its current business conditions,” said John Gularson, executive vice president for Jinfonet Software. “The ability to easily report on information from wherever it exists throughout the enterprise is revolutionary. Data is no longer confined to single applications – it spans applications and can be used across the organization to make strong business decisions.”

Because JReport and Composite Integration Server are both 100 percent Java based, they can be embedded directly into any application or Java environment and become a native part of the offering.

“We regularly see the need to combine information integration with a sophisticated reporting offering,” said Christian Nall, vice president of worldwide field operations at Composite Software. “Composite pulls together the key technology elements that contain relevant data, and JReport provides the reporting and presentation layer. The end user now has unprecedented access to enterprise information and a comprehensive way to visualize and analyze the information. This joint capability has the potential to fundamentally change application development.”

The two products comprising JReport OnDemand Integration – JReport and the Composite Integration Server – have been tested and certified by companies to work together seamlessly to deliver optimized results. By embedding JReport OnDemand Integration, commercial application vendors can offer their customers comprehensive on-demand information for effective decision-making and business process execution.

Jinfonet OnDemand Integration will provide rich reporting results and access to a broad range of aggregated data. Information is presented in full-featured reports that display the data in numerous, customizable reports and charts. Product users can control, customize and navigate report views. Through ad-hoc and interactive reporting, they can investigate real-time actionable information.

Jinfonet OnDemand Integration is generally available.
