New business intelligence tools in Alpha's upcoming release: Exporting Layout Table Reports to Excel with live Excel formulae

In the upcoming version of Alpha's web and mobile app development platform, we've added a myriad of powerful new business intelligence tools. While past versions of our platform already boasted the tight integration of a robust, banded report writer as well as sophisticated charting capabilities, our upcoming release expands that functionality by incorporating HTML and PDF reporting, mobile reporting, Google Visualization, and much, much more! Another exciting new feature to add to Alpha's already impressive list of business intelligence tools tools is the ability to export reports to Excel. But, more importantly, when you design a Layout Table Report, you can set properties in the report definition so that when the report is exported, the Excel file will have live formulas in it.
