Maintaining a Clean Solution

In this day and age, spring cleaning relates not only to your home, but also to your digital assets including your Dundas BI instance. A good cleaning ensures it’s easier for you to use Dundas BI without the confusion caused by too much clutter. One easy way to make sure your Dundas BI environment isn’t full of old and unused entities such as test data cubes, metric sets, dashboards, etc., is to use the neat “Maintaining Project” option that automatically detects items that are not referenced by any other items and allows you to easily delete those.

Visual Data Filtering

Using data visualizations instead of tables is just the first step towards faster data consumption. The second step is using data interactions (drill down, sort, zoom, etc.) that help you see the exact data you need. The most common interaction is using a filter to narrow down data to the required subset of interest. While doing so using standard drop down lists is the most popular way, filtering data directly from your visual simply by pointing and clicking is much faster, especially when it comes to selecting a range of data points.
