Abstract: We present the first public beta release of the XMM-Newton Remote Interface to Science Analysis (RISA) software, available through the official XMM-Newton web pages. In a nutshell, RISA is a web based application that encapsulates the XMM-Newton data analysis software. The client identifies observations and creates XMM-Newton workflows. The server processes the client request, creates job templates and sends the jobs to a computer. RISA has been designed to help, at the same time, non-expert and professional XMM-Newton users. Thanks to the predefined threads, non-expert users can easily produce light curves and spectra. And on the other hand, expert user can use the full parameter interface to tune their own analysis. In both cases, the VO compliant client/server design frees the users from having to install any specific software to analyze XMM-Newton data.
