Board 8 Release Notes

Introducing version 8

BOARD 8 is not just a new product version, but a tectonic shift in the capability to search, consume and analyse information across the organization.

With the introduction of search based data discovery, personal mashboards, data fast tracks, and a new drag and drop user interface, BOARD 8 makes gaining access to the right information easier, faster and more effective for everyone.

This powerful combination of new BOARD 8 features acts at all the different levels within the solution: the new fast track function allows immediate creation of data models; the integrated search empowers users to easily explore data, metadata and applications and to use the results as navigation drivers for further explorations. Finally, the new PinBOARD, enables users to save their findings and to create their own personal analysis environments.

This virtuous cycle does not simply change what the users can do, but drastically transforms and enhances how they can do it.

Furthermore, thanks to the native Business Intelligence and Performance Management unification, this new capability extends to every type of analytic application built with BOARD, closing the gap between the individual need for self-service analysis, and the organizational necessity to have a shared vision of the truth throughout the whole enterprise.

This cutting-edge capability to combine personal and organizational productivity, injecting information intelligence into the decision making processes, highlights once more the importance of BOARD’s unified approach to Business Intelligence and Performance Management: no other Business Intelligence or Performance Management vendor could offer the same.
