BOARD 10.1 brings business into the Cognitive Space
By combining cognitive technologies, storytelling and in-context collaboration BOARD 10.1 augments business users’ capabilities to unleash new intelligence from data and instantly translate insights into action.
BOARD International, the world’s leading supplier of Decision Making software for enterprises, today announced availability of BOARD 10.1, the new release of its all-in-one platform for Business Intelligence, Enterprise Performance Management and Predictive Analytics.
BOARD 10.1 is the first step of a transformative journey that will progressively extend the reach of the BOARD platform to decision-making tasks traditionally performed by humans, creating disruptive business advantages for organizations.
"In BOARD 10.1 we are enhancing the platform with cognitive technologies that mimic human understanding and thought processes"
said BOARD International CTO Pietro Ferrari.
"This way the new BOARD version drastically improves the way people interact with data, making it natural and easy, like an interaction amongst humans. On a single platform and architecture, we are bridging the domains of cognitive computing with business intelligence, planning, simulation and predictive analytics to revolutionize how business decisions can be made."
Search Generated Analytics
The new Search Generated Analytics function enables users to perform analyses without even needing to lay a finger on the keyboard.
Business users with zero technical knowledge can simply interrogate BOARD verbally and get back a machine-generated report that is automatically integrated with vocal and written narratives.
The same results are achievable also by typing in a question: BOARD will automatically create a pertinent report and returns all the most relevant results amongst existing reports.
New story-telling functionality allows users to create a personalized version of enterprise reports and save them in the form of a live presentation.
The live presentation can be saved into a personal workspace or shared with individuals and workgroups, creating a virtual community working together in real time on the same reports.
BOARD 10.1 strongly enhances collaboration across decision-making processes by introducing the ability for multiple users to work together in real time on the same analysis and to contextually communicate through an embedded chat.
At a user’s request, BOARD 10.1 automatically generates smart descriptions of analyses and reports to highlight what is most important and interesting, both in the form of text and voice.
Cutting-Edge User Experience
BOARD 10.1 introduces a totally redesigned drag and drop UI that drastically improves the interaction with data and minimizes the learning curve for business users, allowing them to easily and effectively create their own personal views of enterprise reports.
