Yellowfin 6.3 to Reveal a Better Way to Collaborate with Business Intelligence

Yellowfin 6.3 to Reveal a Better Way to Collaborate with Business Intelligence

The Yellowfin 6.3 Webinar launch will highlight the major additions and enhancements to Yellowfin’s BI solution.  Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie, said that the latest iteration of the vendor’s BI platform focused on improvements to three key areas – collaboration, data visualization and usability.

“Major new collaborative features, in conjunction with important improvements to existing collaborative functionality, form the centerpiece of this release,” said Rabie. “Other areas that we’ve paid particularly close attention to, during the last six months of development, include enhancements to Yellowfin’s renowned usability and data visualization capabilities.”

Collaboration: Driving action with better information sharing
Rabie said that the release of Yellowfin 6.3 would further its reputation as the market leader in Collaborative BI, by making it easier to share and consume data and analysis via enhancements to:

Yellowfin’s PowerPoint-like BI presentation module, Storyboard, including new export and mobile options
Discussion features to enable more useful and user-friendly information exchange
Users’ ability to monitor and understand their relationship with BI content via personalized timelines

“Yellowfin is very passionate about Collaborative BI,” said Rabie. “We believe that great Business Intelligence and analytics needs more than just data – it needs to be shared among people in a very simple way.”

Data visualization: Make better decisions faster with intuitive analysis and deeper insights

Rabie said that the second major goal during the development of 6.3 was to make it simpler and more intuitive to build and interpret BI content.

“Yellowfin has always been a highly visual BI solution, aimed at empowering non-technical people with the ability to independently construct – and derive deep understanding from – insightful BI content,” said Rabie. “Yellowfin 6.3 improves this experience, making it even easier to create, edit, manage and interpret reports, charts and dashboards. Yellowfin 6.3 supports deeper, faster analysis, and effortless at-a-glance insight.”

Usability: Making BI even easier to use and enjoy

Rabie said that because ease-of-use remained the most important purchasing criteria for organizations evaluating a BI solution, Yellowfin would continue to set the industry benchmark for BI usability.

“Usability is a critical aspect of what we believe makes Yellowfin so special,” said Rabie. “It’s why our customers love using Yellowfin.  

“With each release we work harder to improve how Yellowfin works, as well as the look and feel of the application, to ensure that it just gets better and better.  With 6.3, Yellowfin is even easier to use, and much more visually appealing.”

Yellowfin will host three 6.3 release Webinars throughout Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 May 2013.
