Exploration and Flexibility
Perhaps the most significant feature of InetSoft’s visual data mining software is the flexibility that it offers the end user. Using various tools, users can experience a new level of exploration and insight into data, allowing the ability to spot new trends that were not readily seen before.
Users can utilize the brushing tool in order to highlight and filter data according to various dimensions and measures in order to display only relevant information.
In addition to filtering data, users can also take advantage of InetSoft’s multidimensional charting tool to discover new trends. By having the ability to add multiple dimensions or measures to a chart, users can discover correlations by viewing the data represented in different colors, shapes, and sizes. The more ways that data is plotted in a chart, the more possibility the user has for discovering new trends in the data.
For example, while exploring a bubble chart with multiple dimensions, users may notice that the yellow bubbles are also the largest, and therefore discover a trend between the dimensions that are being plotted by color and size.
Once a user finds a significant aspect in the data, they can use the bookmarking tool to save their changes so that they don’t have to search for the correlation next time the report is opened.
