3D Scatter Plot in Dundas BI - The Case for 3D Visualizations
3D charts are frowned upon in the data visualization world, especially when it comes to 3D pie and bar charts. This is because studies show that people make more errors when reading 3D visualizations and so the best practice is to stick with 2D. However, there are some cases, such as the 3D scatter plot, where one could reveal clusters and patterns that are harder to spot in 2D. Inserting 3D visualizations or any other scripted web content
Controlling Authentication Security
With the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now in effect, it's a good time to remind ourselves that Dundas BI includes many different security features helping you better protect your data. For example, Dundas BI allows you to configure a password policy to comply with your organization's regulations. For example, controlling the need for a certain password length or a mix of alphanumeric characters in the password, can users change their password and they use their user name in it. This and other configurations are available to administrators directly from the config menu.
