"Since 1999 we've been creating dashboards and scorecards that were deployed almost like software applications within our customer organizations. The time has come to change that. With Performance Canvas the dashboards and scorecards really turn into BI documents. And they will be created and changed like documents adapting to the high pace changes of business realities."

"Analysis seems to have been perceived as more or less advanced pivot tables by most business people. When they see Performance Canvas the change is instant. Collaboration and change is key in enabling the people ready business."
