One consequence of the explosion in the use of computers is
the ever increasing quantity of valuable data that companies
and organisations have amassed and have stored in their data
But just storing the data on its own does not make use of its
full value. As well as having relatively cheap and powerful
computers, we now have an increasingly ubiquitous medium linking
them all up in the form of the Internet. Despite appearances,
the use of the Internet is still in its infancy. What is now
needed is a way of coupling the enormous amounts of stored information
with the ability to access that information in an easy way over
Data is now starting to be shared at the "programmatic"
level between different organisations via "Business-to-Business" (B2B)
standards such as XML and Web Services.
However the owners of information
have a need for publishing (in a controlled way) the data that they own to their
clients and to other businesses in a manner that is immediately and universally
usable - graphically.
EzRender is a solution
to this need.
EzRender is a technology concieved, designed
and implemented by Petramode Limited for the rendering of data over the Internet
that is normally (but not exclusively) viewed in graphical form. The system is
extremely flexible in that it can be tailored to render almost any data format
(industry standard or bespoke) from potentially any data source to any web browser
anywhere on the Internet - even onto a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant).
There is no software required on the client computer other
than an Internet connection and a web browser.
The system allows the
viewing of any selected portion of data, scaled to a desired size and is delivered
progressively so that a crude image appears very quickly with the details being
progressively filled in as the bandwidth allows.
include internal publishing of complex data within an organisation, "window
dressing" of information for marketing purposes and inter-company proprietary
data exchange - in fact any situation where one party wants to be able to browse
and look at data owned or held by another. There is potential for use in both
the public sector (e.g. Health Service) as well as private industries where complex
data needs to be visualised (or rendered), such as the Oil Business.
great power of the EzRender engine is that it is general purpose - and hence potentially
applicable to any kind of data source and data format. It's unparralelled speed,
efficiency and flexibility means that it can be applied to many different data
