AJAX Version of ClearBI Web Reporter for Adobe Flex Will Be Unveiled at AJAXWorld

The first Web reporter and business intelligence engine for rich internet applications is released

Farata Systems has announced today the production release of  ClearBI 1.0, a Web reporter and business intelligence engine for rich Internet applications. While ClearBI 1.0 is targeted for Adobe Flex and Java developers, the AJAX version of ClearBI 1.1 will be unveiled at the upcoming AJAXWorld Conference & Expo, which will take place on September 23-26, 2007, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, in Santa Clara, California.

ClearBI 1.0 is available in two versions: ClearBI Plugin and ClearBI End-User:

•    ClearBI Plugin allows a software developer create and customize a new report in Eclipse IDE. This report can be integrated into any Flex application by including an extra MXML file and recompiling the main application. The end users will be able to work with the report (sorting, filtering, grouping, export to Microsoft Excel, et al.), but won’t be able to save this customized report.  This version comes with Clear Data Builder a code generator, and is offered at $799 per seat.

•    ClearBI End-User version has all the functionality of the plugin version, and also allows the end users create reports from the universe of the data fields without need to install any software other than Flash Player. The end users create, customize and save reports in the centralized database server without any help from the IT department.
The End-User version is offered as a server license and is priced on a per server CPU basis.

You can develop, save and view reports in Eclipse using ClearBI Plugin:

ClearBI End-User version allows end users to customize and save their reports right from the Web browser using additional toolbar. No software other than a Web browser and Flash Player has to be installed on the users’ computers.

ClearBI designer allows you to specify styling, filtering, sorting, groupings, create formulas and more.

 Both versions support report export to Microsoft Excel from Internet Explorer.

We’ve asked Yakov Fain, Managing Principal of Farata Systems about the upcoming versions of ClearBI. He answered,  “The next version of ClearBI 1.1 (currently in Beta) will support connectivity of this Flex component with the server-side Java using improved OpenAMF communication protocol, which may present an interest to the organizations that do not have Adobe LiveCycle Data Services. ClearBI 1.1 will also  become a reporting solution for AJAX developers. We were able to decouple ClearBI from the data source. For example, this pre-recorded video shows how you can create a Web application that uses ClearBI 1.1 with a data feed provided by a Web service”.

Either repeat the report customization shown in the video  or try to explore ClearBI on your own. You can download the documentation for ClearBI ( the  previous version of ClearBI) at myflex.org .

CloudEXPO Stories
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in. It also helps customers innovate by easily adopting new technologies from ISV partners, such as commercial Kubernetes applications, and allows companies to oversee the full lifecycle of a solution, from discovery through management.
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed. Sometimes in order to reduce complexity teams compromise features or change requirements

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
