Last time we were exploring risk factors of having a coronary heart disease with the help of Flexmonster Pivot Table Component. In the process, we had been using a flat table, pivot table, and charts above all. This time, we will talk about using pie charts and bar charts for different purposes.
Selecting a type of chart depends primarily on what sort of data you have, at what stage of your analysis you are, and what message you want to convey. Generally, charts and graphs are used for one of the following purposes:
- to show a composition of the data,
- to investigate a distribution and/or trends,
- to express comparisons and/or relationships,
- to illustrate a process or display a location.
In May 2015 we announced about terminating the development of Flash and Flex versions of the Component in future releases. Due to the market tendencies we took the strong decision to completely focus on the development of HTML5 version only. And we need to stress out that the current 2.2 release is the last one that includes Flash and Flex versions.
Yes, we are on the threshold of some big changes in our Pivot component offer, still, you shouldn’t worried. (more…)
Last time we slightly discussed the role of data visualisation in exploration data analysis (EDA). As promised, this time, we are going to run such analysis using Flexmonster Pivot Table Component. For this work, we had chosen always actual health care topic. (more…)
"I see it, I deduce it...You see, but you do not observe."
A Scandal in Bohemia.
A week ago we started series of blogs about data visualisation with covering the main aspects of qualitative visualisations. Followed by the logic of using visualisation on the different stages of a typical analytic process we proceed our way with describing the role of visualisation techniques in the exploratory data analysis (EDA). It is an actual topic as nowadays many EDA approaches have been assimilated into data mining, as well as into big data analytics. (more…)
Data volumes which can be easily produced and accumulated nowadays are enormous but revealing their advantages is harder than ever. What we still need is complex and erratic information to be presented with clarity, efficiency and precision. For this purpose, we have a variety of data visualisation tools at our disposal, but in a rush, we can easily slip into vivid visualisation effects and lose benefits of the systematic approach of working with data.
Therefore in anticipation of lifting Flexmonster Pivot Table Component to a new level, we start a series of weekly blogs about data visualisation. We will go all the way through often neglected basics to everyday tips for making your visual communication better. Let us start with a quick review of three key principles of the qualitative data visualisation. (more…)
After the Component evaluation you could probably face the question: what licensing model to choose? With this blog post we will help you to make the right decision when you are trying to get the most suitable licensing model for your project.

One of the most important tools that analytical experts use for analyzing data is key performance indicators (KPIs). Flexmonster constantly monitors the latest trends and couldn’t help adding this feature to the Component. Usually a company needs to observe conditions of sales, profits, expenses, sold units etc. For such analysis they need KPIs - measurable or comparable metrics that are used to define and grade performance of a given measure. Indicators are determined based on company goals. It gives organizations the opportunity to assess their state and helps in forming development strategies, allows to control a business activity in real time. (more…)

Everyone who has ever worked with multidimensional databases analysis has most probably faced with the problem finding a suitable component that not only performs all required functions but also executes them fast. Flexmonster solved this problem and created Flexmonster Data Speed Accelerator for OLAP cubes - a special server-side proxy that helps you to increase data loading speed from server to customer's browser tenfold.
Working with OLAP cubes, a browser component is communicating with the server via XMLA protocol. It's no secret that the XMLA protocol is heavy and exchanges a lot of excessive information. Thus, it takes too much time and memory to load and process the data.
What we did? (more…)
