Designing a Dashboard without BI Expertise
Below is the continuation of the transcript of a Webinar hosted by InetSoft in March 2017 on the topic of New Features in Version 11 of InetSoft's Style Intelligence BI Software. The presenters are Mark Flaherty, CMO at InetSoft, and Byron Igoe, Product Manager at InetSoft.
Mark Flaherty (MF): And so if we move on to next slide, it gives you the idea of how we have looked at those traditional BI challenges and how we turn them around into product development of the features and the benefits that you can get from our BI software. We have aimed for our software to be as easy as possible to both deploy and install and get set up.
You can expect implementation times that are more measured in weeks, it can be as low as two weeks, if you are focused on getting the software up and running. You can have a very usable interactive dashboard built in that kind of timeframe as well.
Our software is easy for end-users, whether they be the analysts, who might be specialized in information access, but even typical business users find the software easy to use, especially if you give them a pre-built dashboard, they can then personalize and customize and explore the data a lot. Even those business users who have Excel level skills can build their own dashboard or report from scratch as you will see in a few minutes.
You don’t need to be a BI expert or even have SQL experience to be administering or deploying our software. It’s a Web based solution, so it’s just a server installation needing a browser on the client device. In this zero-client environment, you can easily have the BI software accessed by all kinds of users whether they be clients or employees.
