Visual Mining Launches NetCharts Performance Dashboards for Business Users

    End-User Solution Combines Sophisticated Analysis with Ease of Use

    ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 10 /CNW/ -- Visual Mining, a leader in delivering
visualization solutions that instantly transform data into actionable business
information, today announced the availability of a new product family,
NetCharts Performance Dashboards(TM) for Business Users. These comprehensive,
intuitive and effective dashboard solutions enable business users to analyze
data, gain insight and make better business decisions.

    NetCharts Performance Dashboards enables Agile Performance
Dashboarding(TM), the ability for an end user to quickly build dashboards that
can react and adapt to the dynamic nature of a company's business. With this
new product family, Visual Mining is extending its dominance in the data
visualization and dashboard market.

    NetCharts Performance Dashboards eliminates the tradeoff between
ease-of-use and functionality inherent in current enterprise dashboarding and
business intelligence (BI) solutions. With NetCharts Performance Dashboards,
any project and any user can take advantage of the great speed and ease-of-use
benefits when building dashboards -- whether the project length is three
months or three years.

    "We have been using NetCharts Performance Dashboards to provide our
customers with an effective way to analyze performance data of the
applications they host on our platform," said Treb Ryan, CEO of OpSource, a
provider of Web operations solutions. "Users can either use the default
dashboards we provide, or they can easily create their own personalized
dashboards on the fly and choose relevant key performance indicators to
analyze and explore the performance metrics most important to them. NetCharts
Performance Dashboards helps our customers deliver the best applications to
their customers."

    NetCharts Performance Dashboards enables business users to harness the
power and customization of self-service business intelligence, performance
tracking and benchmarking. The end user can now quickly produce dashboards to
analyze their most critical business information with little or no IT
involvement -- an attractive alternative to the costly and lengthy
implementation cycle associated with business intelligence tools on the market

    "NetCharts Performance Dashboards provides a beautiful visualization
front end to sophisticated data analysis capabilities that will help users get
actionable use out of their data," stated Claudia Imhoff, president of
consulting firm, Intelligent Solutions. "This product is very intuitive to use
and decreases user reliance on IT by extending what the users can do on their

    NetCharts Performance Dashboards represent a significant advancement in
end user business intelligence. NetCharts Performance Dashboards are unique in

multiple data sources.  It contains a comprehensive set of key performance
indicator templates that allow users to rapidly design personalized data


    NetCharts Performance Dashboards' wizard-based setup and administration

Performance Dashboards, the implementation cycle is shortened from months or
weeks to mere hours.


    The NetCharts Performance Dashboards' visualizations turn user data into
actionable business information through comparative analytics, data grouping,
powerful drill downs and extensive data filtering. The result is better
insight into the data and an increased ability to identify trends, measure
progress and track performance against goals.
