Individuals interested in exploring how eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) is changing the way companies are filing financial reports should take CompSci Resources âInteractive Analysisâ (iA) for a spin.
XBRL lends itself to automated processing, however, it can be difficult to sift through the tagged data to read and understand the information. iA is an XBRL-Viewer that is able to retrieve, format and analyze data stored in XBRL instance documents. iA displays the information in a user-friendly and easy-to-read format.
The company, a leader provider of standards enforcement, financial and regulatory information technology (IT) solutions, is providing a free online demo of its first XBRL product, iA. The demo, which can be found on the company website at http://www.compsciresources.com/products.html, uses publicly available XBRL EDGAR filings downloaded directly from the U.S. Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC). Advanced features including company-to-company comparisons and spreadsheet export capabilities are also part of the demo.
