Visual Fusion Experience 3.0 from IDV Solutions

IDV Solutions today released Visual Fusion Experience 3.0 (VFX), the award-winning rich internet application (RIA) complement to Visual Fusion Server. VFX is the user experience for the Visual Fusion suite of products, a platform for building visual composite applications which unite disparate data in the common context of location and time. Visual Fusion integrates with many products, including Microsoft SharePoint, SharePoint’s Business Data Catalog, Virtual Earth, SQL Server 2008, Oracle, ArcSDE, Web services and feeds, and other services. VFX enables the dynamic visualization of and intuitive interaction with enterprise data and Web services through a set of rich user interface components that can be deployed as SharePoint Web Parts or as interactive Web page components.

The new release of Visual Fusion Experience offers application builders greater flexibility in customizing applications. With the VFX 3.0 release, application creators can add custom icons to the application, adding to the rich palette of options available out of the box. Spatial query is another new feature in VFX 3.0. Application users can now draw an area on the map and have the data within that area returned in the application creator’s choice of displays. SharePoint Search usage has also been expanded, giving application creators different options for integrating search into Visual Fusion applications.

“This release is great for our customers and partners,” explained Ian Clemens, Chief Technology Officer for IDV Solutions. “Empowering them with new ways to create compelling, useful, highly visual composite applications significantly increases insight into business concerns as well as business productivity.”

Using Visual Fusion Experience, knowledge workers and decision makers can see data in its full context within the visual composite application, make new discoveries based on compelling data visualizations, manipulate and interact with all of the content to foster understanding, and contribute to and collaborate around the visual composite application for real competitive advantage.
