Hurray! Web Dashboards with InfoCaptor

I am on the final stages of releasing the beta for our web based dashboard engine. This was a long time coming. The dashboard engine is completely PHP based with Flash charting engine. We have licensed the Flash charting engine and embedded as part of the server dashboard engine.

Flash charts are beautiful and I wanted the simplicity of PHP as the backbone. Apart from this, there are so many wonderful open source tools that are being leveraged in this product namely jQuery for Ajax, jqGrid for Table portlets that it really helps to keep the cost down.

The best part is there will be a "publish to web" menu and a button in the InfoCaptor Desktop Dashboard Designer which will let users to simply publish to PHP based engine. I am also planning to include a light weight web server so that you will see the web dashboard in action everytime. No need to contact any IT person and if you keep your PC on, you may even forward the dashboard URL to your colleagues within your network (be sure that you are inside your VPN or network).

The look and feel will be different because the desktop version is Java based and it uses jFreechart engine for charting whereas for the web based we are using a Flash charting engine.

InfoCaptor has already expanded into the desktop market by channeling into documentation tools and small business dashboard solution. What do you do if you are just a 1 or 2 person company? You certainly don't need a web server when you can view the reports and dashboards on your PC.

But as you grow, it makes sense to have a true web based version and this is what InfoCaptor web based version will allow you to achieve.

I am excited with this release as it opens up so many possibilities, joint ventures and dashboards as SaaS, and OEM Dashboards

So stay tuned, the big release is coming!
