4 compelling reasons to upgrade to BOARD 10
You may be in the know and already aware that BOARD International has now released version 10 of its enterprise BI and CPM product, BOARD Software.
If you’re already familiar with the platform, you’ll know that BOARD Software brings together business intelligence, corporate performance management and powerful analytics in a single platform. It also provides robust, easy to use tools like visualisations, budgeting and forecasting and strategy management.
We like BOARD 10 because it gives enterprises the ability to do even more with their data. It’s packed with new capabilities to improve productivity, empower business users and increase organisational capacity.
Here are our top reasons why BOARD users should consider an upgrade to BOARD 10 in 2016.
- A truly mobile user experience
Raise your hand if you’d like to view and edit BOARD dashboards on a mobile device with the same ease as from a desktop PC. Keep it raised if you want to stop asking IT to code separate programs for mobile and desktop devices.
If your hand is up, BOARD 10 has the solution. It’s built on mobile-optimised HTML 5 technologies. This delivers an enhanced mobile experience, including gesture-based interaction and graphics that render perfectly on smaller screens.
With BOARD 10, you can also say goodbye to coding separate programs and applications for mobiles, tablets and PCs. HTML 5 means you only need to do it once. You’ll also have the assurance that users will have a consistent experience regardless of the device they use.
- Improved analytical functions
Your organisation’s performance is only as good as management’s ability to understand and interpret data. BOARD 10 expands on traditional analytical functions by introducing advanced options that enrich data analysis and reporting.
In BOARD 10, out of the box statistical and business capabilities include:
- time period
- first, last, minimum and maximum values
- min not zero value
- average not zero value
- IDSI-ARX forecast
- IDSI-ARX naive
- linear regression
- multiple linear regression
- next value [IDSI-ARX naive]
- next value [linear regression]
- growth %
- standard deviation
- Easier and more flexible reporting
BOARD 10 delivers new ways of formatting reports. This makes sharing and creating reports easier and more flexible.
With an intuitive drag-and-drop interface, comprehensive charts and a powerful self-service environment, BOARD 10 gives you additional freedom to customise any report.
BOARD 10 also includes user-requested features to streamline financial reporting, such as the ability to apply indentations to the format of a row.
- Self-service data modelling
The final feature we think every BOARD user should try is Data Fast Track. This is a new function for self-service data modelling, mash ups and uploading.
In short, Data Fast Track draws on smart, automatic data blending from different sources to create compelling visual analyses and analytical applications from raw data in just a few clicks. Its Excel-like environment enables you to create new measures with formulas, cut and paste data and edit metadata mapping. My colleague, Alberto Fioccia, wrote about BOARD 10 and Data Fast Track earlier this month. It’s worth reading his post on why every BOARD Software user should try Data Fast Track if you’re interested in this functionality.
