IDV Releases Data Connector For Its BI Software

Lansing-based IDV Solutions Tuesday released an Open Data Protocol Connector for its business intelligence software, Visual Fusion.

With this release, organizations can easily connect solutions built with Visual Fusion to any source that uses the OData protocol, including the DataMarket on Microsoft’s Windows Azure Marketplace.

Visual Fusion is business intelligence software that unites data from disparate sources in a Web-based, visual context. Users can analyze their data in the context of location and time, using an interactive map, timeline, data filters and other analytic tools to achieve greater insight and understanding.  With today’s release, users can combine OData sources with other business information — including content from SQL Server, SharePoint, Salesforce, Oracle, ArcGIS, and Web feeds.

“The new OData connector enhances one of the key advantages of Visual Fusion — the ability to unite data from virtually any sources in one interactive visualization,” said Riyaz Prasla, IDV’s Program Manager. “It lets users add context to their applications by bringing in data from government sources, the Azure Marketplace, and other organizations that support the protocol.”

OData provides an HTTP-based, uniform interface for interacting with relational databases, file systems, content management systems, or Web sites.
