NetCharts Performance Dashboards 2.3 Available from Visual Mining
2.3 Extends the Value of BI Dashboards for Communicating Vital Information / Provides True Dashboard Portability
ROCKVILLE, Md., Dec. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Visual MiningÂ®, a leader in performance management and data visualization solutions, today announced the availability of NetCharts Performance DashboardsÂ® (NCPD) version 2.3 for business users. NetCharts Performance Dashboards enables executives, managers, and staff to independently visualize, analyze, explore, understand and consume data from across their organization. NCPD is a self-service solution that untethers decision makers from IT, unlocking needed information and allowing them to quickly gain insight and take action.
With the new Version 2.3 release, users can take advantage of:
Scheduled Dashboard Generation and Delivery. A scheduling interface allows dashboards to be automatically rendered and delivered at pre-established times as PDFs via email. The PDF “snapshot” is automatically emailed to a distribution list, and recipients can view the “snapshot” from their desktop or from a smartphone (BlackBerry, iPhone, Droid), iPad, or tablet computer. With an in-message link, recipients can directly click through to view and work with the live, real-time dashboard.
Early adopters have used the scheduled dashboard generation/delivery to create and distribute reports prior to management, staff and board meetings to ensure everyone is “on the same page”, and to deliver performance dashboards and scorecards to remote team members to reinforce and focus on key objectives, and communicate performance against those objectives.
“Business intelligence dashboards enable teams to communicate more frequently and effectively,” commented company President and CEO, Tristan Ziegler. “Scheduled dashboard generation and delivery ensures everyone remains focused on organizational, team and individual goals since the regular communication of vital information and metrics keeps users engaged and interested, which in turn increases the adoption of the organization’s or team’s performance management initiative.”
True Dashboard Portability. NCPD is fully HTML 5 compliant, making it browser agnostic and able to operate without requiring third party plug-ins such as Flash or Silverlight. NCPD seamlessly and consistently renders dashboards, scorecards, charts and graphs across all browsers and platforms, including displaying on mobile devices – iPad, iPhone, Android and Blackberry. NCPD provides true dashboard portability.
Advanced In-Dashboard Computation and Analysis. Deep in-dashboard calculation functionality enables business users to define and perform their own business measures, KPIs, ratios and analysis without needing to add computed fields to the source data or export data to Excel. End users never have to leave the dashboard or scorecard to perform complex analysis and calculations, or create specific goals and metrics. NCPD 2.3 provides unrivaled capabilities to perform custom in-dashboard calculations and analysis.
“Visual Mining is committed to helping organizations implement, use, and benefit from interactive business intelligence dashboards and solutions that help them achieve their own corporate performance management goals. Empowering users, enabling them to more easily explore and understand data, and facilitating more effective communication makes individuals more aware, more involved, and better able to achieve goals,” added Ziegler. “NCPD 2.3 is another in a long stream of exciting innovations to help transform how business is done and challenge the status quo by providing end-users with the self-sufficiency they desire.”
