Challenge

Key design philosophies came into play as well. First, Tomax wanted to deliver consistency across all user interactions. To this end they embraced a single-sign-on design that would enable every part of the Retail.net application to be user- and role-aware, presenting views, data, and processes to users appropriately and consistently. The chosen embedded BI technology would need security and authorization APIs that would efficiently support this construct.

Solution

Based on these criteria, the Tomax development team chose the commercial open source Jaspersoft Professional Business Intelligence Suite for its flexible licensing, its ease of integration with portal and security services, and embodiment of open standards.

Results

Complete, cost-effective information delivery, in every format and channel needed to acquire and serve leading global retailers.
