I am back after long time. Getting less time to do blogging. Today I would like to give an important update, which I thought would be very important to every one.
BO Explorer is one of the outstanding visualization tool launched by SAP. It has some very cool features. Here they are:
- In memory Processing - The Explorer indexes the data and keepts it in memory during the visualization of the dashboard.
- Self Service BI - Provides options for end users or analysts to dynamically change the chart types and additional dimensions and measures.
- Flexibility to add and remove panes - Each pane contains one visualization such as either chart or table
- Export options such as excel, image and webintelligence format
- Interactive Filters
Even though all the above features are available, its still lack the speed of retaining good position in the Dashboards Portfolio when compared to niche players such as Tableau, Qlikview, Spotfire and so on.
SAP is also not clearly given any roadmap on how they will achieve as a leader on visualizations portfolio. Hope to see this would happen soon.
Note: This entire view is my individual opinion. I try to keep the correct information. If you see anything wrong, please correct me by sending a comment.
