TARGIT, a developer of business intelligence and analytics solutions, has released a new version of its Decision Suite software. This new release is a complete rewrite of the TARGIT software and introduces features designed to aid businesses in their quest to make informed and effective decisions quickly and easily. The new Decision Suite software boosts the “intelligence” part of “business intelligence and analytics” with enhanced applications that learn how the user works and shorten the time between question and answer.
The Decision Suite software incorporates several new and enhanced features, including:
- The Intelligent Wizard replaces the Intelligent Analytics tool and enables users to submit queries in natural language. For example, a user might ask the Decision Suite software to compare all sales employees’ performance over time (in those words), and the Intelligent Wizard will know what data to return and in which format. The Intelligent Wizard learns from user patterns and behaviors and presents data in whatever format the user likes best.
- Self-Service Analytics allows users to create new analyses on the fly, incorporating data from within and/or outside their data warehouse, and to share the resulting reports and analyses with other users in the organization.
- In-memory analytics with TARGIT Xbone is another option for performing ad hoc analytics of data outside the data warehouse. Bypass the need for IT’s help in creating new analyses and simply drop files into a folder to get started.
- An interface design with object definition that allows a user to build sophisticated analyses in only a few clicks. Dimensions and measures can be added using in-object searches (similar to tagging photos on social media websites) and visualized by selecting from the entire range of TARGIT object-types from within the object. Built-in intelligence even suggests the best chart style for the analysis and visualization.
The new release also includes several new technical features, including new smart calculations, improvements to the cross-table formatting, revised visualization settings, and an adjusted reporting engine.
