Cool Tools: Rich Internet Applications

Category : business

In my day job, I spend a lot of time creating Internet applications. I guess that’s why I’ve taken to writing a blog like this one. But more importantly, I’m also trying to build my four-hour-a-week business / muse.

I have recently come across a company called Actuate that offers a platform for creating Rich Internet Applications. For folks that are building rich applications that want to get around the difficulties of working with traditional web applications, the company offers a portfolio of content- and application-specific business intelligence products. Business Intelligence offerings, for those that don’t know, are methods for extracting information from the various systems you have in your organization and analyzing and presenting it in a way that can be better understood.

The Actuate system provides a means to meet nformation and online channel application, performance Management and Java Reporting needs. It would probably read like an ad if I wrote more on this, so read here for more information about their business intelligence solution. Let me know what you think — what sort of muses are you working on?

Actually this is something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. I have a couple ideas, but not sure if they’ll fly. What is your experience in online marketing (i.e. getting targeted traffic to your web site(s))? This is becoming quite a hurdle for me at the moment.
