Infragistics Debuts NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization

New, affordable UI control set offers business intelligence and rich data visualization capabilities to the masses

Infragistics has announced the immediate availability of NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization 2009 Volume 1. A complete collection of data visualization-focused user interface (UI) controls NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization 9.1 is geared towards developers who build information dashboards tracking Key Performance Indicators and Rich Internet Applications that deliver business intelligence.  By embracing and extending the capabilities of Silverlight 2 and delivering to market data visualization tools for only $595 (MSRP), Infragistics makes business intelligence possible for every business.

"NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization marks a new opportunity for Infragistics.  As business intelligence grows as a mission critical application in every business, data visualization also increases in importance because of the key role it plays in the creation of business intelligence solutions," said Dean Guida, CEO of Infragistics.  "Given the expected growth and opportunity in the data visualization space, and the arrival of the Microsoft Silverlight platform on which to build highly interactive user interfaces, now is the right time for Infragistics to offer customers a product which meets their specific data visualization needs."

NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization takes maximum advantage of the Silverlight browser plug-in's capabilities to offer developers next-generation resources including:

  • xamWebMap to present end users with business intelligence data in rich and interactive maps featuring advanced functionality such as panning, zooming, mouseover effects and tooltips.
  • xamWebChart to create "islands of richness" in any scene, SharePoint® WebPart or legacy ASP.NET application. This stylable Silverlight control supports animation, storyboards, data binding and 28 chart types.
  • xamWebGauge to create highly interactive, high performance business scorecards and information dashboards using the designability and client-side interactivity.
  • xamWebTimeline enabling users to quickly understand and visualize a sequence of events.
  • xamWebZoombar that plugs into other Silverlight controls - like the chart or timeline - to provide an intuitive user interface for dynamically scaling and scrolling an associated control's view of data.

As with all Infragistics product offerings, and as requested by customers, source code is included in NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization.  With access to source code, developers can ensure the integrity of their projects, learn a great deal about writing and structuring Silverlight control code by looking at the source code and customize Silverlight data visualization controls to create new or composite controls.
