Canyon Digital Solutions looked to Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX from the onset. Paired with the integrated Telerik Reporting, they were able to build a smooth, dynamic and scalable application, where custom data lists and metrics speak to each other.
“We did see other products, but they would just never have the cohesiveness that we were getting from Telerik at the time,” says Eric Dahl, Lead Software Architect for Canyon Digital Solutions.
To give customers full freedom to create their own datasets was of the essence for Canyon Digital Solutions. They relied on Telerik UI to pack diverse components into the application interface—tabs, columns, grids and easy-to-customize value fields—that agencies can pick from and configure. They then paired it with the extensible Telerik Reporting that would allow government agencies to simply drag and drop data fields into reports for a specific project.
“Agencies design all these fields and then we auto-draw them with the Telerik components with data binding,” Dahl adds. “They select which columns of data they want to be in the report, and then they can create an unlimited number of reports off of 10 or 15 templates we provide.”
Imperative to the success of the project was the option to visualize and export reports. With its extremely fast rendering, interactive graphs and broad range of supported export formats, Telerik Reporting proved to be just the web report designer to complement the user experience. “We’re highly relying on Telerik components and it makes it so fast to develop our reports,” says Dahl.
