Visual Mining Announces Third Release of Its Eclipse-Based Business Intelligence Reporting Tool; welcomes BIRT initiative

Visual Mining Announces Third Release of Its Eclipse-Based Business Intelligence Reporting Tool; welcomes BIRT initiative
Visual Mining, Inc., a leading developer of reporting and data visualization solutions, today announced the release of NetCharts(R) Designer 4.5.3, its Eclipse-based Business Intelligence Reporting Tool.

"We are pleased with the continued success of NetCharts Designer," said Michael MacDonald, CEO and Founder, Visual Mining. "It's gratifying to see the speed at which new reporting applications can be developed with NetCharts Designer and to see our customers realize a strong return on their investment."

NetCharts Designer is an Eclipse-based desktop design tool that allows programmers and non-programmers to create web-based, dynamic dashboards and interactive graphical reports. Wizards guide the user through the process of interacting with data sources and designing charts and tables. A graphical layout editor allows users to drag and drop charts and tables to create complete reports. A code generation module then converts the XML-based report definition into JSP, ASP, .NET, CFML, or even PDF that can then be deployed in virtually any contemporary application server.

Visual Mining welcomes proposed open source business intelligence solutions such as the Business Intelligence and Reporting Tool (BIRT) initiative recently announced at Eclipse.org. "We are encouraged by the increased interest in driving down the costs and complexity of building Java-based reporting solutions. The feature set proposed by BIRT is remarkably similar to our existing NetCharts Designer architecture. We will be able to easily integrate BIRT-like technology, and continue providing high-end graphics and standardized reporting to the business community." said Kevin Scott, Visual Mining's Vice President of Engineering.
