Innovation Never Rests Series: Map Animation
Bring Your Maps to Life

In this 7th edition of Innovation Never Rests, we return to the topic of Visual Analytics, and how our innovative software, Dundas BI, is evolving to help you better visualize and analyze your data using unique and dynamic data visualizations. New to Dundas BI, is the ability to use map and diagram animations to faster detect changes across geo-locations. With these powerful animations, users are immediately able to cognitively identify changes in their geographical data.

Video: Adding Writeback Capabilities to Your Dashboard

Data input and writeback is something fairly unique to Dundas BI and business intelligence tools as a whole. What really sets Dundas BI apart, is just how easy it is to implement your own custom data input features into a dashboard or report. In this video, we learn how Dundas BI’s data input features can be used, and how to implement them.

Database Writeback in Dundas BI 

Dundas BI includes built-in data input features for storing data entered by end users in Dundas BI's warehouse data storage area, as well as notes functionality to allow users to add and reply to notes tagged to data points. The following article outlines an example of how you can use Dundas BI to write data to your own database.

Does Everyone Know What a Dashboard Really Is?

Jamie Cherwonka,
R&D Director - Data Visualizations

There are many different types of information displays people need for exploring, analyzing, monitoring and acting on data. In Dundas BI – our dashboard, reporting, and analytics platform – you’re able to create different types of “views” (which we use for displaying data using data visualizations connected to metric sets), but by far the most common and most important view, is the dashboard.

What can you use dashboard views for in Dundas BI? Hang on - the answer is surprisingly controversial, but also demonstrates Dundas BI’s capabilities and flexibility.
