Real-time Reporting

Iteration Software offering reporting platform for tablet PCs and other devices

Mountain View, CA  November 11, 2002  Iteration Software, a provider of reporting and delivery solutions, announced the beta availability of the Iteration Real-time Platform, which can be used for the Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition operating system.

Iteration said that traditional business intelligence systems often have built in latencies that do not allow for true real-time reporting. With that in mind, Iteration developed its Real-time Platform that captures data directly from the enterprise transaction stream, allowing for the active delivery of information within two to 10 seconds of an event or transaction, without the massive overhead of a query-driven approach.

In addition, the platform provides reports in formats such as charts, graphs, cross tabs, receipts and forms, rather than XML messages.

Its "presence aware delivery" notifies the user of new information and delivers alerts and reports at the right time and to the right device. Once delivered and viewed, reports continue to update themselves on screen in real-time as the underlying data changes, without requiring users to manually refresh or resubmit the report.

"The mobility of Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, combined with the reach of Iteration's Real-time solution, will bring an information-rich collaborative environment to leading businesses," said Alexandra Loeb, vice president of the Tablet PC division, Microsoft Corp.
