ZapThink Report: Visual Fusion Suite "Killer Use Case" for SOA

IT Analyst firm reports IDV Solutions' Enterprise Mashups become the "killer use case" for SOA, delivering business value in a flexible, visually intuitive manner.

    /24-7PressRelease/ - March 31, 2008 - IDV Solutions, LLC, a visual composite applications software company, today announced that a new, independent research report by ZapThink discusses IDV Solutions location-based enterprise mashup software and its ability to enable users to flexibly mash up data important to an organization, increasing the value of their SOA initiatives.

The report titled, "IDV Solutions: Location-Based Data Mashups for Microsoft SharePoint" (ZapThink - March 2008), identifies the following primary business drivers for enterprise mashups: rich user interface, the integration of location-based information and business Services, and interactive analysis of data. The report examines IDV Solutions' Visual Fusion Suite and its ability to provide organizations with enterprise-ready location software that leverages Microsoft SharePoint to provide a platform for bringing data together in an intuitive mapping and information display.

"Even though the location-based mashups that IDV Solutions enable leverage loosely coupled Services that SOA provides, the SOA story fades into the background, which is where it belongs," said Jason Bloomberg, managing partner for ZapThink and the author of the report. "Visual Fusion Suite provides user value at the interface through the flexible mashing up of data important to the organization."

"We are very pleased to hear that by leveraging our SOA technology customers are realizing massive cost savings," said Ian Clemens, Chief Technology Officer at IDV Solutions. "SOA makes it easy and fast for customers to bring meaning to the data important to their business."

The report illustrates how IDV Solutions' Visual Fusion Suite enables customers to bring the power of location to their intranet portals, dashboards, Web sites, and decision support systems. The report goes on to outline the unique capabilities of the Visual Fusion Suite, including Visual Fusion Server , Visual Fusion Experience , and Visual Fusion Tile Server .
