TROY, MI, Sep 08, 2008 - iDashboards, the leader in Business Intelligence (BI) dashboard software, today announced the availability of iDashboards 6.0, which features enhanced capabilities for next generation BI. With this enterprise dashboard application, users can identify trends at a glance and drill down into data sets to view more detailed information, facilitating quick, easy and well-informed decision making.
The increasingly complex and expensive BI solutions market, coupled with the need to leverage growing amounts of data, has led companies to seek more user-friendly and cost-effective solutions. iDashboards 6.0 meets this demand with its ability to integrate as a standalone or bolt-on application, ultimately providing an alternative to complex, end-to-end BI suites.
With real-time analytics, a key enhancement of iDashboards 6.0, users gain greater insight through real-time statistics and benchmarking. For example, users can apply mathematical expressions to perform calculations on their existing data sets, to create derived analytics. Computations can be based upon a variety of standard expressions, such as mean, standard deviation and total, or on a user's custom expressions. As a result, users can easily identify trends and outliers, forecast outcomes, and make strategic decisions.
Other enhanced customization capabilities of iDashboards 6.0 include:
- Flex®-based architecture -- significantly accelerates the responsiveness of iDashboards' Flash animation, especially in situations with large amounts of underlying chart data
- Embed images and Flash® capabilities -- extend the diversity of data that can be displayed in a dashboard, enabling the inclusion of Flash-based content, and offering a richer experience and enhanced functionality
- Robust charting options -- offer three new categories, including thermometer, bullet and report, which provides users with a library of over 100 charting and mapping options featuring iDashboards' unique interactive animation
