Recently, here at InfoCaptor we started a small research on the subject of flags. We wanted to answer certain questions like what are the most frequently used colors across all country flags, what are the different patterns etc.
The innovation engine in the field of Business Intelligence and Data visualization tools , is certainly cranked up. Qlikview, Tableau and Tibco Spotfire introduced new category of Data Visualization term in the field of Business Intelligence.
Now every vendor offers some form of Data Discovery. Oracle is also working on something similar adding to their confusing mix of OBIEE stack.
With the launch of new InfoCaptor, you can perform ad-hoc data visualizations and build dashboards all within the browser. Now that is refreshing. The browser is the key here. Once you deploy on the server, users can simply login, upload their datasets or point to existing database connection. Before you know users are already slicing and dicing their datasets and swimming in the world of beautiful visualizations. Yes, the visualizations are absolutely stunning and why shouldn’t they be. It is based on the excellent d3js.org library.
The key here is that the browser is your canvas and it is pretty huge, for e.g the detfault size for the visuals takes up my entire browser screen real estate. I like big visuals and if I am producing a Trellis chart then I can simply drag the corners and resize it. The visualization library is very comprehensive and offers around 30 visuals. It provides the bullet graph as well for KPI tracking.
Here are some screenshots from the website
InfoCaptor is also available on the cloud as a service and based on that there are few live analysis to try out without login or installing anything.
I would say with this release small business owners have truly found their Tableau or Qlikview alternative.
