Inference delivers the first and only platform for IronPython and IronRuby dynamic scripting, execution, and enhanced reporting directly in Microsoft® Office documents

Moreover, Inference transforms the Microsoft Office environment into a platform for creating situational applications that address business needs. It gives technical professionals the power to assemble software solutions in a fraction of the time traditionally required, without burdening IT.

Blue Reference, Inc., a leading provider of software that powers the discovery and application of knowledge, concluded a nine month beta release cycle with the announcement of the commercial release of Inference for .NET. The release is comprised of tools that weave IronPython and IronRuby scripting capabilities into the productivity features of Word and Excel documents for collaboration, data analysis, and enhanced reporting.

Inference functions as a Microsoft Office add-in that has a point-and-click interface for adding IronPython or IronRuby code, .NET objects, and structured data to Word and Excel documents. With a single click, the Word or Excel document can be automatically transformed into a results document, making reporting a cinch. And Inference utilizes all of the Microsoft Office productivity features that are essential for editing, formatting, and collaboration.

"Inference offers excellent value as a collaboration and reporting tool for .NET users," says Paul van Eikeren, Chief Executive Officer and President of Blue Reference. "Moreover, Inference transforms the Microsoft Office environment into a platform for creating situational applications that address business needs. It gives technical professionals the power to assemble software solutions in a fraction of the time traditionally required, without burdening IT."

Inference can be used to assemble flexible reporting solutions that routinely update reports with new data as it becomes available. Such dynamic reporting capabilities help drive collaboration between business decision makers and workers on the frontlines of research and development, leading to better business process understanding and practices.

Whether performing routine data analysis or deploying flexible reporting solutions across an enterprise, Inference users cite the benefits of delivering high quality applications with appropriate functionality, enhanced usability, and the flexibility to respond to changing requirements.
