Self-Service Analytics

Quickly gather actionable business insights to inform the planning process

Board allows you to create compelling visual analyses and analytical applications from raw data in a matter of seconds, without the help of IT.

An innovative user environment that combines self-service data preparation, search-based data discovery, personal mash-ups, and drag and drop functionality gives you access to the right information easier, faster and more effectively, without compromising enterprise data governance. This unified self-service analytics platform ensures that users can gain meaningful insights from data in seconds.

Always find the right information

Board’s interactive search functionality, which works across screens, data, metadata, and applications, allows you to find and explore information quickly and effectively.

As a single, unified solution, Board allows any search result to be used immediately as a driver for further analysis or as an element for creating new reports, through its drag and drop self-service user interface. After searching for a product name, for example, users can immediately choose a report where it is included and use the product or a correlated dimension as the selection criteria.

Intuitive drag and drop analysis

Enable end users to effortlessly create their own analyses or customize centralized reports on the fly with Board’s intuitive drag and drop interface.

A sliding panel makes measures and dimensions instantly available to users, who can choose values, set rows and columns, create calculated measures, run reports and get their own business insights at the speed of thought.

Easily upload, merge and model your data

Board’s new, self-service data modeling functionality, Data Fast Track, allows business users to easily connect to any data source, instantly create data models and immediately run visual analyses or build analytical applications without the help of the IT team.

Users can also enrich data models by automatically blending additional data sets or by creating derived fields in an Excel-like environment, and because Data Fast Track is natively integrated within the Board platform, IT can easily promote business models created by users to the enterprise level, maintaining full corporate data governance.

Effectively organize your findings within your own virtual repository

Choose any existing report or graph, customize it, save it and organize it in a private virtual environment thanks to the innovative PinBoard functionality.

Through it, any user can create their own personalized access to company information, from different applications or reporting environments, without sacrificing data consistency.
