US: IDV Solutions announced their participation at Microsoft’s Business Intelligence (BI) Conference in New Orleans, LA. The company’s flagship product, Visual Fusion, is enterprise mashup software used to build BI applications that unite data from virtually any data source in interactive web-based data visualisations (comprised of maps, timelines, and analytics) for superior context, rapid insight and decisive action.
Mark Morrison, CEO, IDV Solutions, said, “As BI becomes more accessible and even critical for business users to perform their jobs, BI tools will need to resonate with the average businessperson in ways those traditional, technician-centric tools and approaches do not. Today’s executives and knowledge workers are taking their cues from what they see and use in the Web 2.0 world and expect their business tools to be just as visual, interactive, collaborative and mobile. That’s what they get with Visual Fusion.”
Visual Fusion software ties together Microsoft’s BI stack—Excel, SharePoint, SQL Server—and presents it to the business user in Silverlight business-focused applications. Visual Fusion enhances Microsoft BI capabilities by bringing self-service location intelligence to the business user. With the full spectrum of development capabilities in Visual Fusion, anyone in an organisation can build a geospatial mashup in SharePoint in minutes, combining Excel files, web feeds, SharePoint content, SQL Server content, and more.
