JackBe Brings Metric-Driven Real-Time Operational Intelligence to Front-Line Decision Makers with DIY BI

CHEVY CHASE, Md. & FREMONT, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

JackBe®, the leading provider of Real-Time Operational Intelligence software, today announced availability of the latest release of its flagship Real-Time Operational Intelligence Platform. Presto® 3.5 makes creating real-time operational measures even more accessible to business users, bringing self-service BI to a whole new level for more immediate business impact.

With Presto 3.5, business users can easily create powerful real-time operational and key performance indicator (KPI)-driven apps and dashboards that combine data from a myriad of live enterprise and social media information sources. Presto-powered apps and dashboards deliver live insights so business users can make real-time decisions and have immediate business impact.

"Faced with shrinking decision windows and mounting data, business users tasked to make operational decisions cannot afford to wait hours, days or months to gain insight into their business operations. They need real-time, self-service BI tools to assess the business impact of changing conditions as they actually happen," said John Crupi (News - Alert), CTO, JckBe. "Presto 3.5 dramatically reduces the complexity of mashing disparate data into actionable, visual insights, empowering users with the analytical capabilities necessary to meet the most demanding needs for real-time decision making."

Presto 3.5 extends its user-friendly interface to include new options to create dashboards through drag-and-drop, to add custom visualizations as easily as plugging in the view, and to customize Presto with a customer's own logo and colors. Once created, all Presto dashboards are portable with HTML5 apps that run anywhere, including SharePoint, portals, websites, tablets and mobile phones with the same look-and-feel of the native device. Presto 3.5 has enhanced security for mobile devices and a more secure single-sign-on experience for social media sites.

"What JackBe (News - Alert) Presto allows us to do is combine data from multiple systems with Blackbaud data to enhance our operational effectiveness," said Michael Rubio, CEO, Adelante Advisory Corporation. "With Presto 3.5, we look forward to equipping our business managers with even more self-service analytical tools. This new real-time insight will raise decision-making on behalf of our non-profit clients to a new level."
