Today, software developer michaels, ross & cole, ltd. (mrc) announces the addition of two new m-Power templates: The Cross-Tab Report Template and the Data Upload Template. m-Power is a development platform that rapidly creates web applications such as report-writing, Business Intelligence, executive dashboards, e-commerce, customer portals, and mobile applications to name a few.
Templates provide the foundation for all web applications built with m-Power. Each template includes all necessary application elements, such as the application layout, foundation, and advanced features like ajax suggest, sorting, filtering, graphing, and more. The template approach reduces development to a three-step process: Once users select their data, define their specs, and click "build", m-Power generates an application.
The addition of the Cross-Tab Report Template and the Data Upload Template further improves m-Power capabilities, and lets m-Power users build two new types of applications. Here's a brief description of each template:
The Cross Tab Report Template creates reports that cross reference row data with user-selected column data in a simple matrix format. It's great for summarizing and comparing data, and frequently used for sales analysis apps, accounting apps, and more.
The Data Upload Template creates applications that let end users easily upload their spreadsheet data to a database. Once in the database, users can access, update, and maintain their data securely via the web. When used with reporting templates, it's a perfect way to let users maintain their own ad-hoc reporting data tables.
"These new templates bring some exciting new capabilities to m-Power," says Brian Crowley, mrc's Director of Development. "Now m-Power users can easily create the ever-popular cross-tab report, or give end users a way to upload spreadsheet data to the database without bothering the IT department."###
