InstantAtlas Server is a set of 'off-the-shelf' software modules for building robust Data Observatories, Local Information Systems, Community Information Systems, and Area Profiling applications at a fraction of the cost of custom solutions.
InstantAtlas Server extends the capabilities of InstantAtlas stand-alone dynamic and profile reports enabling 'live' data delivery from Microsoft and Oracle databases. It provides a rich set of web-based administration tools allowing content to be managed by a central team or federated to multiple teams across an organisation and its partners. It’s modular structure means you can tailor a solution to your needs, at a price you can afford and then add additional functionality as your needs evolve.
Rapid delivery from an out-of-the-box solution
If you have a set of indicators available, perhaps across multiple spreadsheets, and a suitable technical platform, then implementing an IA Server solution with a number of key outputs is achievable in days. We recommend a phased approach where customers publish a limited number of outputs that can grow over time. If a technical platform is not immediately available we can host the solution on behalf of customers for short or longer periods.
Improve the process of loading and managing data
If you find managing lots of spreadsheets is becoming problematic then IA Server helps improve your administration and data management processes by providing a tool for loading, storing and managing indicators in a central database. This means that you can manage large numbers of indicators either now or in the future.
Share the effort of loading and managing data
If you find that the co-ordination of sharing data in spreadsheets with colleagues in different locations is taking a lot of time then IA Server helps improve your data sharing process by providing data loading and administration tools that are accessible to anyone with access to the Internet. Trusted 'Content Administrators' can collate and load their own data through controlled processes that ensure it is validated before going live.
Deliver custom outputs to meet different audience types
The IA Server Administration Console means you can create exactly the right sort of outputs to meet different user needs. You have complete flexibility to mix and match indicator data. You can immediately meet the two 'typical user types' by (1) delivering dynamic reports to users wanting to explore the data themselves and (2) tables for users who want to create custom sets of indicators and download them for specific analyses.

1. Load and manage data »
If you already have an application that holds this type of data then it is likely that we can migrate this data into our database structure without any significant manual data processing work.
2. Create tailored outputs »
Use the Administration Console to:
3. Publish your outputs »
IA Server provides multiple options for making your data, metadata and other resources available depending on your audience, their requirements and their skills. Access to these outputs can be carefully controlled through rights granted to user groups.
4. Customise and re-brand your site »
There are many options for customisation of our end-user pages. If you are using our user interface for delivery of the solution you can quickly re-brand these pages to suit your corporate style. Often our pages are embedded into a separate web site. If you are using your own user interface then you can create relevant links, potentially using your own web Content Management System (CMS), to all pre-defined outputs like Data Views and Profiles.
5. Add additional Modules »
If you did not purchase all the available IA Server Modules up-front then you have the options to add others as your needs evolve. The modular nature of the IA Server solution enables you to build up the functionality of your solution in stages over time as user requirements evolve. See Features for information on all our Modules.
NeSS Data Transfer Tool
The NeSS Data Transfer Tool is a wizard based utility that allows the user to download and import indicator data from the Neighbourhood Statistics (NeSS) Data Exchange Service published by the Office of National Statistics (ONS). This tool can be used to import data straight away or can be scheduled to run at particular times using the IAS Data Synchronisation Service. The key functions of the NeSS Data Transfer Tool include:
