JustSystems, the largest independent software vendor in Japan, today announced the launch of its beta program for xfy XBRL Report. The software is designed to let users view, explore and report on multi-dimensional XBRL data (such as that in electronic SEC filings); combine it with other content; then publish the results as reports in HTML or PDF format.
In related news, JustSystems also announced that Diane Mueller, vice president, XBRL development for the company, has been appointed to the board of directors of XBRL International, and that Dave Raggett, JustSystems-sponsored W3C Fellow, has been appointed to the XBRL International Standards Board.
"XBRL wasn't designed for human readability, and that introduces risk at every stage of the information lifecycle — from preparation to the review and analysis used to make operational and investment decisions," said Diane Mueller. "xfy XBRL Report provides a trusted rendering and visualization solution for composing and publishing reports in formats designed to be read by people, not machines."
JustSystems designed xfy XBRL Report for people who want to review and analyze XBRL data and share their results with others. To that end, xfy XBRL Report consumes XBRL, creating content that uses the XBRL data and publishes it in a web-ready HTML or PDF. Other users can view the published reports without any special software — just a standard web browser. The xfy XBRL Report audience includes XBRL report filers and research analysts, who need an internal tool for reviewing and analyzing XBRL filings for investors and other constituents.
An Edgar Online I-Metrix connector provides access to Edgar Online data directly from xfy XBRL Report user interface. Attribution references let users create views of XBRL data that connect back to the source data.
The beta version of xfy XBRL Report is available now. Users interested in participating in the beta program can email [email protected]
